                     CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

    29th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2013)

		 Istanbul, Turkey, August 24-29, 2013


ICLP 2013, the 29th International Conference on Logic Programming,
will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, August 24-29, 2013.

Workshops collocated with an international conference are one of the
best venues for the presentation and discussion of preliminary work,
novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience.
Collocated workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting
specialised topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and
project collaboration. The topics of the workshops collocated with
ICLP 2013 may cover any area related to logic programming (e.g.,
theory, systems, environments, software-engineering aspects,
extensions, alternative paradigms, applications), including cross-
disciplinary areas.  However, any workshop proposal will be taken
under consideration.

The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organisers,
but ample time should be allowed for general discussions. Workshops
can vary in length, but the optimal format are half-day workshops and
full-day workshops.

Workshop Proposal:

People interested in organising a workshop at ICLP 2013 are invited
to submit a workshop proposal. Proposals should be written in English
and about two pages in length. They should contain:

  * the title of the workshop;
  * a brief technical description of the topics covered by the
  * a discussion of the timeline and relevance of the workshop;
  * a list of some related workshops held in recent years;
  * the (preliminary) required number of half-days allotted to the
    workshop and an estimate of the number of expected attendees;
  * the names, affiliations, and contact details (email, web page,
    phone, fax) of the workshop organiser(s) together with a
    designated contact person; and
  * the previous experience of the workshop organising committee in
    workshop or conference organisation.

Proposals should be in PDF format and submitted to the Workshop Chair
(Hans Tompits) by email by 

   March 11, 2013.

Reviewing Process:

Each submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Workshop Chair and the
Conference Program Chairs. Proposals that appear well-organised and
that fit the goals and the scope of ICLP will be selected. The Chairs
will notify the responsible organisers of their decision via email by
April 4, 2013.

The final length of each workshop will be planned according to the
number of submissions each workshop receives. For each accepted
workshop, the ICLP local organisers will prepare a meeting place and
arrange the distribution of the workshop proceedings, which must be
prepared by the workshop organisers. The workshop registration fees
will be handled together with the conference fees.

Workshop Organisers' Tasks:

  * Producing a "Call for Papers" for the workshop and posting it on
    the Internet and other means. A Web page URL which will be linked
    into the ICLP 2013 home page must be provided by April 29, 2013.
  * Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference
  * Reviewing and deciding upon submitted papers.
  * Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the local
    organisers and the Workshop Chair.
  * Sending the workshop program and the workshop proceedings in pdf
    format to the Workshop Chair for distribution at the conference.
  * The use of the Computing Research Repository (CoRR) for the
    workshop proceedings is strongly recommended.
