CFP: WLPE 2011

21st Workshop on Logic-based methods in Programming Environments

Affiliated with ICLP 2011
July 10, Lexington, Kentucky, USA


The goal of the 21s Workshop on Logic-based methods in Programming
Environments (WLPE 2011) is to be a informal venue for presentation
and discussion of research on logic-based methods and tools which
support program development and analysis. In this way, the workshop
tries to bridge the gaps between different communities interested
and active in logic-based tools for programming.

In addition to papers describing more conceptual and theoretical work,
we explicitly also welcome papers describing the implementation of,
and experience with, such tools.

The 21st Workshop on Logic-based methods in Programming Environments
continues the series of successful workshops held in Ohio, USA (1989),
Eilat, Israel (1990), Paris, France (1991), Washington D.C., USA (1992),
Vancouver, Canada (1993), Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy (1994),
Portland, USA (1995), Leuven, Belgium and Port Jefferson, USA (1997),
Las Cruces, USA (1999), Paphos, Cyprus (2001),
Copenhagen, Denmark (2002), Mumbai, India (2003),
Saint Malo, France (2004), Sitges (Barcelona), Spain (2005),
Seattle, USA (2006), Porto, Portugal (2007), Udine, Italy (2008),
Pasadena, USA (2009), and Edinburgh, UK (2010).

We hope to attain the same friendly atmosphere as in past workshops,
which enabled fruitful exchanges leading to joint research and
subsequent publications.


Areas particularly relevant to the workshop include (but are not
limited to):

* static and dynamic analysis
* debugging and testing
* program verification and validation
* code generation from specifications
* termination analysis
* reasoning on occurs-check freeness and determinacy
* profiling and performance analysis
* type and mode analysis
* shape, point-to and escape analysis
* module systems
* optimization tools
* program understanding
* refactoring
* logical meta-languages

Authors who are interested in taking part in the workshop, but are
unsure if their work falls within its scope, are warmly invited to
contact the organizers and obtain suitable advice.


We encourage the submission of original research in the area as well as
relevant results that have been submitted, rejected, or accepted elsewhere
as long as they are relevant for the WLPE community.

All papers must be written in English and should not exceed 15 pages.
We welcome also shorter submissions, e.g., extended abstracts and
short papers, of at least 3 pages.

There will be no formal reviewing and no formal proceedings. The accepted papers will be made available electronically before the workshop.
In case there is a sufficient number of original publications,
we aim to publish refereed post-proceedings in EPTCS.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission page:

Final versions should be created using LaTeX and the style file
easychair.cls (


Paper submission      April 29
Notification          May   16
Final versions due    May   28
Workshop date         July  10


The keynote speaker has yet to be determined.


The workshop will be held as a satellite workshop of ICLP 2011
organized by the Computer Science Department of the University of
Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky, USA.
