                            CALL FOR PAPERS

       27th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2011)
                 Theory and Practice of Logic Programming
                 Lexington, Kentucky, USA, July 6-10, 2011
                   Submission deadline: Jan 10/17, 2011



Since the first conference held in Marseille 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:

       Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Non- monotonic Reasoning, Knowledge 

       Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines, Parallelism.

       Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation, Verification, Debugging, 
Profiling, Testing.

   Language Issues:
       Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher Order, Types, Modes, 
Assertions, Programming Techniques.

   Related Paradigms:
       Abductive Logic Programming, Inductive Logic Programming, Constraint 
Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming.

       Databases, Data Integration and Federation, Software Engineering, Natural 
Language Processing, Web and Semantic Web, Agents, Artificial Intelligence, 


The four broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers for 
describing technically sound, innovative ideas that can advance the state of 
the art of logic programming; (2) application papers, where the emphasis will 
be on their impact on the application domain; (3) system and tool papers, where 
the emphasis will be on the novelty, practicality, usability and general 
availability of the systems and tools described; and (4) technical 
communications, aimed at describing recent developments, new projects, and 
other materials that are not ready for main publication as standard papers.

All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must 
not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. They must be written 
in English. Technical papers, application papers, and system and tool papers 
must not exceed 15 pages plus bibliography. The limit for technical 
communications is 10 pages. Submissions must be made in TPLP format 
(ftp://ftp.cup.cam.ac.uk/pub/texarchive/journals/latex/tlp-cls/) via the 
Easychair submission system, available at 

Paper registration (abstract):  Jan 10, 2011
Submission deadline:            Jan 17, 2011
Notification to authors:        Mar 11, 2011
Camera-ready copy due:          Apr 15, 2011
Conference:                     Jul 6-10, 2011


All accepted long papers will be published in the journal Theory and Practice 
of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge U. Press (CUP), in one or more special 
issues. In order to ensure the quality of the final version, papers may be 
subject to more than one round of refereeing (within the decision period) 
and/or “shepherding.” The program committee may also recommend standard papers 
to be published as technical communications.

At the time of the conference CUP will make the web page for this(ese) TPLP 
issue(s) available including volume and issue numbers, table of contents, page 
numbers, and the papers themselves. All registered attendants at the conference 
will get a password for on-line access to this web page during the conference 
and indefinitely from then on (“lifetime access”), which can be used to read 
papers on line, download them, or print them for personal use. Attendants will 
also receive all the papers in a memory stick at the conference.

It is planned that the collection of technical communications will appear as a 
volume of the LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics) series, 
and published online through the Dagstuhl Research Online Publication Server 
(DROPS). All technical communications will also get space in the program for 
presentation. The journal issue(s) will also include a listing of the technical 
communications, with pointers to the LIPIcs/DROPS volume.

The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming (ALP).


The Association for Logic Programming has funds to assist financially 
disadvantaged participants and, specially, students in order to be able to 
attend the conference.


The ICLP 2011 program will include several workshops, held before and after the 
main conference. They are perhaps the best places for the presentation of 
preliminary work, undeveloped novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and 
interested audience with opportunities for intensive discussions and project 


The 7th 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-renowned 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 a special session of the main ICLP 


Lexington is a medium size, pleasant and quiet university town. It is located 
in the heart of the so-called Bluegrass Region in Central Kentucky. The city is 
surrounded by beautiful horse farms on green pastures dotted with ponds and 
traditional architecture stables, ponds and small race tracks, and bordered by 
white or black fences. The Horse Museum is as beautifully located as it is 
interesting. Overall, the city has a nice feel that mixes well old and new.

Traveling to Lexington is easy. The local airport has frequent direct flights 
to Cincinnati, Atlanta, Detroit, and Chicago. It has also direct but less 
frequent flights (one or two a day) to several other large US cities such as 
Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston and Newark. Thus, it can be reached easily from any 
place in the world.
