/IMPORTANT NOTE: The conference general chairs together with the program 
chairs and the ALP Executive, have decided to hold ICLP2020 as a fully 
virtual conference on the original week. More details will be forthcoming.//
*Call for papers - The Research Challenges Track**
**ICLP 2020 - The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming*
September 18 - September 24, 2020
University of Calabria, Rende, Italy

Are you a researcher in logic programming working on a problem that 
appears to be particularly challenging? Perhaps you feel a little stuck? 
Or, are you facing a problem that needs some LP technology you are not 
familiar with? Would you like to open a discussion for collaboration? 
The goal of the Research Challenges Track is to help researchers 
overcome their challenges by providing a venue to invite input from the 
broader community. Contributors to this less formal track will be given 
an opportunity to exchange ideas with other researchers who may have 
come up against, or are currently working on, similar problems. We hope 
the track will foster discussion and possibly even new collaborations.

Expected contributions
The Research Challenges Track at ICLP 2020 invites submissions 
describing LP research challenges in a wide range of areas, including 
but not limited to:
* Industry-level application of logic programming
* Applications of logic programming to other sciences and AI 
(bioinformatics, natural language processing, digital forensics, etc.)
* Logic programming and big data
* Machine learning and logic programming
* Logic programming and other computational paradigms
* Theoretical foundations of logic programming

Evaluation and Feedback
In this track, the selection process will be less formal. While authors 
will receive some feedback, the review process will not be typical. We 
do not expect contributions only from seasoned researchers. Ph.D. 
students and junior researchers are more than welcome to contribute. 
Also, contributors outside the LP community will be given special 
attention. Any contribution that clearly describes a research problem 
relevant to logic programming will be evaluated positively. The chance 
to interact with other researchers during the conference will provide 
additional feedback and hopefully lead to a longer-term
