CFP: ICLP 2013


29th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2013)
Istanbul, Turkey, August 24-28, 2013


Since the first conference held in Marseilles 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 restricted to:

  • Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Non- monotonic Reasoning, Knowledge Representation.
  • Implementation: Compilation, Virtual Machines, Parallelism.
  • Environments: Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation,Verification, Debugging, Pro- filing, Testing.
  • Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher Order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Programming Techniques.
  • Related Paradigms: Inductive Logic Programming, Constraint Logic Programming, Answer- Set Programming, SAT-Checking
  • Applications: Databases, Data Integration and Federation, Software Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Web and Semantic Web, Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinfor- matics.

In addition to the presentations of accepted papers, the technical program will include invited talks, advanced tutorials, the doctoral consortium, and several workshops.


The four broad categories for submissions are as follows. Regular papers, including: (1) tech- nical papers for describing technically sound, innovative ideas that can advance the state 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 availability of the systems and tools described.  Technical commu nications (4) aimed at describing recent developments, new projects, and other materials that are not ready for publication as standard papers.  All papers and technical communications will be presented during the conference.

All submissions must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. They must be written in English. Tech- nical papers, application papers, and system and tool papers must not exceed 12 pages plus bibliography: however a new condensed TPLP format may be used and the papers may include appendices beyond 12 pages. The limit for technical communications is 10 pages. Submissions must be made in the condensed TPLP format ( via the Easychair
submission system, available at


Paper registration (abstract):          April 3, 2013
Submission deadline:                    April 10, 2013
Notification to authors:                May 21, 2013
Revision deadline (when needed):        June 21, 2013
Camera-ready copy due:                  July 18, 2013
Conference:                             August 24-28, 2013


All accepted papers will be published in the journal Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge University 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). Accepted technical communications will be published in the on- line abstract of the special issue(s).  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.
