ICLP 2024 – CFP

October 11-17, University of Texas at Dallas

SCOPE: Since the first conference 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:
  • Theoretical Foundations: Formal and operational semantics, Non-monotonic reasoning, Reasoning under uncertainty, Knowledge representation, Semantic issues of combining logic and neural models, Complexity results.
  • Language Design and Programming Methodologies: Concurrency and parallelism, Mobility, Interacting with ML, Logic-based domain-specific languages, Hybrid logical and imperative/functional languages, Programming techniques, Answer Set Programming, Inductive Logic Programming, Coinductive Logic Programming
  • Program Analysis and Optimization: Analysis, Transformation, Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Visualization, Logic-based validation of generated programs.
  • Implementation Methodologies: Compilation, Parallel/distributed execution, Constraint implementation, Tabling, Logic-based prompt engineering, User interfaces.
  • Paper Registration April 29, 2024
  • Submission deadline for regular papers, main/application tracks May 6, 2024
  • Notification to authors June 19, 2024
  • Revision deadline (when needed) July 8, 2024
  • Submission deadline for short papers, main/application tracks, system demos, BOF meetings, and recently published research July 8, 2024
  • Final notification July 22, 2024
  • Final copy due August 5, 2024
  • Main conference October 14-17, 2024
TRACKS AND SPECIAL SESSIONS In addition to the main track, ICLP 2024 will host:
  • Applications Track: invites submissions on emerging and deployed applications of LP, describing aspects of the development, deployment, and evaluation of logic programming systems to solve real-world problems, including interesting case studies, benchmarks, and lessons learned.
  • Recently Published Research Track: provides a forum to discuss important recent results related to logic programming that have appeared (from January 2022 onward) in selective journals and conferences, but have not been presented at ICLP.
  • System Demonstrations: We invite submissions to showcase logic programming systems in a live setting. This track is not designed for sales pitches. Rather demonstrations are a way for the community to see the relevance, potential, and innovation of the system and to allow time for discussion with its creator(s).
  • Birds of a Feather (BoF) Sessions. We invite proposals for break-out sessions during ICLP to provide informal discussions for colleagues with similar interests in inclusive environments. BoFs are not intended to be presentations: proposers of BoF sessions should serve as discussion leaders only.
  • 2024 Autumn School in Computational Logic: October 11-12
  • Workshops: October 12-13, 2024
  • Doctoral Consortium and Mentoring Sessions: October 12-13, 2024 provides students and early career researchers with the opportunity to present and discuss their research directions, obtain feedback from both peers and experts, and participate in mentoring sessions on how to prepare for and succeed in a research career. Leaders in logic programming research from academia and industry give invitedtalks on their research areas. The best paper from the DC will be given the opportunity to make a presentation in the main ICLP conference.
  • Logic Programming in Industry: October 14, 2024
SUBMISSION DETAILS All submissions must be written in English. Papers accepted at ICLP may appear either in
  • The ICLP 24 Technical Communication Proceedings published by Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS). EPTCS format is described at http://style.eptcs.org
All accepted papers will be presented during the conference. Authors of accepted papers will by default be automatically included in the list of ALP members, who will receive quarterly updates from the Logic Programming Newsletter at no cost. The forms of submission are as follows.
  • Main and Application Tracks All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. (These restrictions do not apply to previously accepted workshop papers with a limited audience and/or without archival proceedings.) Main and Application track submissions may have one of two forms.
    • Regular papers are at most 14 pages in TPLP format, including references. Accepted regular papers will be published either in a special issue of TPLP or in the Technical Communication Proceedings of ICLP ’24. In the latter case, papers must be reformatted into EPTCS format and must not exceed 14 pages. Authors of Regular papers accepted as Technical Communications can convert their submissions into extended abstracts (2 or 3 pages in EPTCS format) which should allow authors to submit a long version elsewhere.
    • Short papers (7 pages in EPTCS format, including references). The accepted short papers will be published in the Technical Communication Proceedings.
  • Recently Published Research Track We invite extended abstracts describing previously published research (from January 2022 onwards) in selective journals and conferences, that has not been previously presented at ICLP. The extended abstract should be 2-3 pages in EPTCS format and accompanied by a title page with (i) details on where the original paper appeared, (ii) a link to the original paper, (iii) a paragraph describing why the authors believe this work warrants a presentation at ICLP. The extended abstracts will be published in the Technical Communication Proceedings.
  • System Demonstrations We invite extended abstracts (2 or 3 pages in EPTCS format) describing systems to be demonstrated in a session of ICLP. System demonstrations should provide highlights of the novel features of the system, along with information about how to access it. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Technical Communication Proceedings.
  • Birds of a Feather (BoF) Proposals Finally we invite extended abstracts (2-3 pages in EPTCS format) that propose breakout sessions that may take place during the ICLP 24 conference. BOF proposals should motivate the relevance of the topic to logic programming, describe the expected audience, identify discussion leaders and their expertise, and provide a brief description of the activities during the session. BoF proposals should also describe the planned practices to promote inclusion and to foster attendee involvement. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Technical Communication Proceedings.
Submissions will be made via EasyChair. The submission Web page for ICLP2023 is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iclp2024 ORGANIZATION:
  • Honorary General Chair: Doug DeGroot
  • Program Co-chairs: Pedro Cabalar and Theresa Swift
  • General Chair: Gopal Gupta
VENUE ICLP24 will be held on the campus of the University of Texas at Dallas in October 2024. Dallas, part of the Dallas/Fort-Worth metroplex, is a dynamic city with great tourist attractions. Renowned for its unique blend of modernity and rich cultural heritage, Dallas offers an array of attractions for visitors: from diverse range of museums, such as the Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, to the Fort Worth Stockyards that feature the Cattle Drive (twice daily). Dallas boasts a thriving culinary scene, from sizzling steakhouses to trendy food trucks, to authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. With a wealth of entertainment options, including shopping districts, live music venues, and sports events, a visit to Dallas is a memorable experience.
