The 35th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2019)
Research Challenges in Logic Programming Track

September 20–25, 2019
Las Cruces, New Mexico (USA)


Are you a researcher in logic programming working on a problem that appears to 
be particularly challenging? Perhaps you feel a little stuck? Or, are you 
facing a problem that needs some LP technology you are not familiar with? Would 
you like to open a discussion for collaboration? The goal of the Research 
Challenges Track is to help researchers overcome their challenges by providing 
a venue to invite input from the broader community. Contributors to this less 
formal track will be given an opportunity to exchange ideas with other 
researchers who may have come up against, or are currently working on, similar 
problems. We hope the track will foster discussion and possibly even new 

Expected contributions

The Research Challenges Track at ICLP 2019  invites submissions describing LP 
research challenges in a wide range of areas, including but not limited to:

  *   Industry-level application of logic programming
  *   applications of logic programming to other sciences and AI 
(bioinformatics, natural language processing, digital forensics, etc.)
  *   logic programming and big data
  *   machine learning and logic programming
  *   logic programming and other computational paradigms
  *   theoretical foundations of logic programming

Evaluation and Feedback

In this track, the selection process will be less formal. While authors will 
receive some feedback, the review process will not be typical. We do not expect 
contributions only from seasoned researchers. Ph.D. students and junior 
researchers are more than welcome to contribute. Also, contributors outside the 
LP community will be given special attention. Any contribution that clearly 
describes a research problem relevant to logic programming will be evaluated 
positively. The chance to interact with other researchers during the conference 
will provide additional feedback and hopefully lead to a longer-term 

Important Dates (Tentative)

  *   Abstract registration and paper submission: July 15, 2019
  *   Notification: July 31, 2019
  *   Camera-ready copy: September 1, 2017
  *   Conference: September 20-25, 2019

Submission Details

All submissions must be written in English. Submissions should be no more than 
4 pages in OASIcs format, including references, and should describe a research 
problem or challenge. Accepted papers will be presented during the conference. 
Authors of accepted papers are expected to register to ICLP and present their
