Call for Papers 25th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2009) Pasadena, California, USA, July 14--17, 2009 http://www.ist.unomaha.edu/iclp2009/ ICLP 2009 will be co-located with IJCAI 2009 (see http://ijcai-09.org/) Conference Scope ================ Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been the premier international conference for presenting research in logic programming. Contributions are sought in all areas of logic programming including but not restricted to: - Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Non- monotonic Reasoning, Knowledge Representation. - Implementation: Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines, Parallelism. - Environments: Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation, Verification, Debugging, Profiling. - Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher Order, Types, Modes, Programming Techniques. - Related Paradigms: Abductive Logic Programming, Inductive Logic Programming, Constraint Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming. - Applications: Databases, Data Integration and Federation, Software Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Web and Semantic Web, Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics. In addition to the presentations of accepted papers, the technical program will include invited talks, tutorials, a Doctoral Consortium, and workshops. Submission Details ================== The three broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers, where, for ICLP 2009, specific attention will be given to work describing innovative language features leading to better software development, verification, and implementation; (2) application papers, where the emphasis will be on their impact on the application domain as opposed to the advancement of the the state-of-the-art of logic programming; and (3) short papers/posters, ideal for presenting and discussing current work not yet ready for publication and research project overviews. All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. They must be written in English. Technical and application papers must not exceed 15 pages. The limit for short papers is 5 pages. Submissions must be in the Springer LNCS format (http://www.springeronline.com/lncs/) via the Easychair submission system, available at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iclp2009. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, expected to be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Important Dates =============== Paper registration: February 27, 2009 Submission deadline: March 3, 2009 Notification of authors: April 7, 2009 Camera-ready copy due: May 5, 2009 ICLP 2009 Organization ====================== General Co-Chairs: Hai-Feng Guo, Gopal Gupta Program Co-chairs: Patricia Hill, David S Warren Program Committee ================= Annalisa Bossi Paulo Moura Pedro Cabalar Steve Muggleton Mireille Ducasse Gopalan Nadathur Esra Erdem Lee Naish Francois Fages Enrico Pontelli Thom Fruehwirth Ricardo Rocha Maurizio Gabbrielli Torsten Schaub Maria Garcia de la Banda Terrance Swift Michael Hanus Peter Szeredi Patricia Hill (Co-chair) Mirek Truszczynski Katsumi Inoue Frank Valencia Joxan Jaffar Wim Vanhoof Andy King David Warren (Co-chair) Nicola Leone Neng-Fa Zhou Fangzhen Lin Workshops ========= The ICLP 2009 program will include several workshops. They are perhaps the best places for the presentation of preliminary work, novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience. Workshops also provide a venue for presenting specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration in any areas related to logic programming, including cross-disciplinary areas. Workshop proposals by Feb. 3rd, 2009. Doctoral Consortium =================== The 5th Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides research students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research directions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and world-renown experts in the field. Accepted participants will receive partial financial support to attend the event and the main conference. The best paper and presentation from the DC will be given the opportunity to present in special session of the main ICLP conference. Conference Venue ================ ICLP 2009 will be held in conjunction with IJCAI 2009 at the Pasadena Convention Center; for more information, see http://ijcai-09.org/.
