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
Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Non- monotonic Reasoning, Knowledge
Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines, Parallelism.
Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation, Verification, Debugging,
Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher Order, Types, Modes,
Assertions, Programming Techniques.
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All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must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.
