*The Conference*

The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2020) will 
take place from the 18th September 2020 in Rende (CS), Italy. Since the 
first conference held in Marseille in 1982, ICLP has been the premier 
international event for presenting research in logic programming.

Contributions are solicited in all areas of logic programming and 
related areas, including but not restricted to:
Foundations: Semantics, Formalisms, Answer-Set Programming, 
Non-monotonic Reasoning, Knowledge Representation.
Declarative Programming: Inference engines, Analysis, Type and mode 
inference, Partial evaluation, Abstract interpretation, Transformation, 
Validation, Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing, Logic-based 
domain-specific languages, constraint handling rules.
Related Paradigms and Synergies: Inductive and Co-inductive Logic 
Programming, Constraint Logic Programming, Interaction with SAT, SMT and 
CSP solvers, Logic programming techniques for type inference and theorem 
proving, Argumentation, Probabilistic Logic Programming, Relations to 
object-oriented and Functional programming, Description logics, 
Neural-Symbolic Machine Learning, Hybrid Deep Learning and Symbolic 
Implementation: Concurrency and distribution, Objects, Coordination, 
Mobility, Virtual machines, Compilation, Higher Order, Type systems, 
Modules, Constraint handling rules, Meta-programming, Foreign 
interfaces, User interfaces.
Applications: Databases, Big Data, Data Integration and Federation, 
Software Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Web and Semantic Web, 
Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Education, 
Computational life sciences, Education, Cybersecurity, and Robotics.

*Tracks and Special Sessions*
Besides the main track, ICLP 2020 will host additional tracks and 
special sessions:
Applications Track: This track invites submissions of papers on emerging 
and deployed applications of LP, describing all aspects of the 
development, deployment, and evaluation of logic programming systems to 
solve real-world problems, including interesting case studies and 
benchmarks, and discussing lessons learned.
Sister Conferences and Journal Presentation Track: This track provides a 
forum to discuss important results related to logic programming that 
appeared recently (from January 2017 onwards) in selective journals and 
conferences but have not been previously presented at ICLP.
Special Session: Women in Logic Programming: This special session will 
include invited talks and presentations by women in logic programming.
Research Challenges in Logic Programming Track: This track invites 
submissions of papers describing research challenges that an individual 
researcher or a research group is currently attacking. The goal of the 
track is to promote discussions, exchange of ideas, and possibly 
stimulate new collaborations. Papers submitted to this track do not go 
through the usual review and will not be published in the proceedings – 
they will be distributed at the conference as a technical report.
Every of the above four tracks will have its own dedicated chairs, PC, 
evaluation criteria, and CFP with related submission details (see the 
specific call for papers). In addition to the presentations of accepted 
papers, the technical program will  include invited talks, advanced 
tutorials, the doctoral consortium, and several workshops.

*Submission Details*
All submissions must be made via the EasyChair conference system: 
<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iclp20200>. Regular papers must 
be in the condensed TPLP format (template here) and not exceed 14 pages 
including bibliography. Regular papers may be supplemented with 
appendices for proofs and details of datasets which do not count towards 
the page limit and which will not be made available as appendices to the 
published paper.

Three kinds of regular papers will be accepted:
• Technical papers for technically sound, innovative ideas that can 
advance the state of logic programming;
• Application papers that impact interesting application domains;
• System and tool papers which emphasize novelty, practicality, 
usability, and availability of the systems and tools described. 
Application, system, and tool papers need to be clearly marked in their 
All submissions must be written in English and describe original, 
previously  unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be 
submitted for publication elsewhere. These restrictions do not apply to 
previously accepted workshop papers with a limited audience and/or 
without archival proceedings.
Papers of the highest quality will be selected to be published in the 
journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge 
University Press (CUP). 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).
The program committee may recommend some regular papers to be published 
as Technical communications in EPTCS format (http://info.eptcs.org 
<http://info.eptcs.org/>). Technical communications must not exceed 14 
pages, including the bibliography. The authors of the technical 
communications can also elect to convert their submissions into extended 
abstracts, of 2 or 3 pages, for inclusion in the EPTCS proceedings. This 
should allow authors to submit a long version elsewhere.
All regular papers and technical communications will be presented during 
the  conference. So, at least one author per accepted paper is expected 
to register and  attend the conference. Authors of accepted papers will, 
by default, be automatically included in the list of ALP members, who 
will receive quarterly updates from the Logic Programming Newsletter at 
no cost.
