Topics of Interest
CICLOPS is a well established line of workshops. This will be the 13th
edition in a successful series of workshops which is traditionally
co-located with ICLP. The CICLOPS workshop aims at discussing and
exchanging experience on the design, implementation, and optimization
of constraint and logic programming systems, and other systems based
on logic as a means of expressing computations. Preference will be
given to the description and analysis of real implementations and
their evaluation, problems found in their design, steps taken towards
the solutions, as well as descriptions of work in progress in that
direction. The workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
* Design and implementation of sequential, concurrent and distributed
constraint and logic programming systems.
* Compile-time analysis and balance between compile-time effort and
run-time machinery, dynamic compilation.
* Interaction between high-level optimizations / transformations /
specialization and low-level issues.
* Memory management, garbage collection, indexing techniques and
optimizations for large size programs.
* Implementation of logic engines in functional and object oriented
* Embedding of constraint and logic programming engines in
* Implementation techniques for alternative logic engines and
inference mechanisms (ASP, SAT, QSAT, DL etc.).
* Implementation of theorem provers, proof assistants and logic based
natural language processing systems.
* Object and module systems.
* Design and implementation of declarative I/O concepts for constraint
and logic programming languages.
* Documenting, debugging, testing, and profiling tools for constraint
and logic programming systems.
Authors are invited to submit papers in PDF using the Springer LNCS
LaTeX format. Submissions must be written in English, not exceed 15
pages, and describe new, original and unpublished research results or
work in progress. Submissions will be handled by the EasyChair
conference system at:
We plan for the informal workshop proceedings to be available on-line
at the Computing Research Repository (CoRR) after the workshop. An
electronic copy will also be distributed during the conference.
