ICLP 2022 Call for papers

The 38th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2022)


Haifa, Israel August 2-8, 2022 ICLP 2022 will be a physical event in Haifa, Israel Part of the FLOC 2022 https://floc2022.org/


Abstract registration: January 21, 2022

Paper submission: January 28, 2022


Scope   Since the first conference held in Marseille in 1982, ICLP has been the premier international event for presenting research in logic programming. Contributions are sought in all areas of logic programming, including but not restricted to:

  • Foundations: Semantics, Formalisms, Nonmonotonic reasoning, Knowledge representation.
  • Languages issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Modules, Meta-programming, Logic-based domain-specific languages, Programming techniques.
  • Programming support: Program analysis, Transformation, Validation, Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing, Execution visualization.
  • Implementation: Compilation, Virtual machines, Memory management, Parallel/distributed execution, Constraint handling rules, Tabling, Foreign interfaces, User interfaces. 
  • Related Paradigms and Synergies: Inductive and coinductive logic programming, Constraint logic programming, Answer set programming, Interaction with SAT, SMT and CSP solvers, Theorem proving, Argumentation, Probabilistic programming, Machine learning.
  • Applications: Databases, Big data, Data integration and federation, Software engineering, Natural language processing, Web and semantic web, Agents, Artificial intelligence, Computational life sciences, Cybersecurity, Robotics, Education. Tracks and Special Sessions 

Besides the main track, ICLP 2022 will host additional tracks:

  • Applications Track: this track invites submissions of papers on emerging and deployed applications of LP, describing all aspects of the development, deployment, and evaluation of logic programming systems to solve real-world problems, including interesting case studies and benchmarks, and discussing lessons learned.
  • Recently Published Research Track: this track provides a forum to discuss important results related to logic programming that appeared recently (from January 2020 onwards) in selective journals and conferences, but have not been previously presented at ICLP.

In addition, ICLP 2022 will house:

  • Doctoral Consortium and Mentoring Sessions: the Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides students and early career researchers with the opportunity to present and discuss their research directions, obtain feedback from both peers and experts in the field, and participate in mentoring sessions on how to prepare and succeed for a research career. We will have leaders in logic programming research from academia and industry to give invited talks on their research areas. The best paper from the DC will be given the opportunity to make a presentation in a session of the main ICLP conference.
  • Tutorials and Co-located Workshops.
