                             CALL FOR WORKSHOPS

The 37th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2021)

September 20--27, 2021

Fully virtual event organized by the Department of Computer Science of
the University of Porto.


The ICLP conference series has a long standing tradition of hosting a
rich set of co-located workshops. ICLP workshops provide a unique
opportunity for the presentation and discussion of work that can be
preliminary in nature, novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide
and interested audience.

Co-located workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting
specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and
project collaboration. The topics of the workshops co-located with
ICLP 2021 can cover any areas related to logic programming (e.g.,
theory, implementation, environments, language issues, alternative
paradigms, applications), including cross-disciplinary areas. However,
any relevant workshop proposal will be considered.

The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organizers,
but ample time should be allowed for general discussion. Workshops can
vary in length, but the optimal duration will be half a day or a full
