                    CALL FOR PAPERS

    22nd International Conference on Logic Programming
      Seattle, Washington, USA, 17-20 August, 2006
   Part of Fourth Federated Logic Conference, FLoC 2006

SUBMISSION SITE http://www.easychair.org/ICLP06/


Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been
the premier international conference for presenting research in logic
programming. Contributions (papers and posters) are sought in all areas 
of logic programming including but not restricted to:

* Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Nonmonotonic Reasoning,
  Knowledge Representation.
* Implementation: Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines, 
* Environments: Program Analysis, Program Transformation, Validation 
  and Verification, Debugging, Profiling.
* Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher 
  Order, Types, Modes, Programming Techniques.
* Alternative Paradigms: Constraint Logic Programming, Abductive Logic 
  Programming, Inductive Logic Programming, Answer Set Programming.
* Applications: Deductive Databases, Data Integration, Software 
  Engineering, Natural Language, Web Tools, Internet Agents, Artificial 

The three broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers, 
where specific attention will be given to work providing novel integrations 
of the areas listed above, (2) application papers, where the emphasis
will be on their impact on the application domain as opposed to the
advancement of the the state-of-the-art of logic programming, and (3)
posters, ideal for presenting and discussing current work not yet ready 
for publication, for PhD thesis summaries and research project overviews.

In addition to papers and posters, the technical program will include 
a plenary talk in association with other FLoC conferences, two ICLP invited 
talks, an advanced tutorial, Doctoral Consortium and several workshops. The 
workshops will be held on August 16 and August 21, 2006.


Papers and posters must describe original, previously unpublished 
research, and must not be simultaneously submitted for publication 
elsewhere. They must be written in English. Technical papers and
application papers must not exceed 15 pages in the Springer LNCS 
format (cf. http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html). The 
limit for posters is 2 pages in that format. 

The primary means of submission will be electronic. Papers and posters
must be submitted at http://www.easychair.org/ICLP06/submit/


The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the LNCS series. The proceedings will include the accepted papers
and the abstracts of accepted posters.


The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming.
The ALP has funds to assist financially disadvantaged participants.

The ALP is planning to sponsor two awards for ICLP'06: for the best
technical paper and for the best student paper.

The ICLP Doctoral Consortium (DC) is the second doctoral consortium to 
be offered as part of ICLP-06. The DC builds on the experience of the 1st 
Doctoral Consortium on Logic Programming, held at ICLP-05. It is designed 
for doctoral students working in areas related to logic and constraint 
programming, who are planning to pursue a career in academia. The Doctoral 
Consortium aims to provide students with an opportunity to present and 
discuss their research directions and to obtain feedbacks from peers as 
well as world-renown experts in the field. The Doctoral Consortium
will also offer invited speakers and panels discussions. More information
can be found at http://www.cs.nmsu.edu/~epontell/DC2006/ .


The ICLP-06 program will include several workshops. They provide a
platform for the presentation of preliminary work and novel ideas in a
less formal way than the conference itself. They also are an opportunity
to disseminate work in progress, particularly for new researchers.
Workshops also provide a venue for presenting more specialized topics
and opportunities for more intensive discussions, exchange of ideas, and
project collaboration. The following workshops will be held in
association with the ICLP-06 conference (please, refer to the conference
website for links to workshop pages):

* International Workshop on  Applications of Logic Programming in the
  Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services, ALPSWS2006,

* Colloquium on Implementation of Constraint and LOgic Programming
  Systems, CICLOPS,

* International Workshop on Software Verification and Validation
  SVV 2006,

* Preferences and Their Applications in Logic Programming Systems,

* Search and Logic: Answer Set Programming and SAT,

* 16th Workshop on Logic-Based Programming Environments, WLPE 2006,

* MVLP'06: International Workshop on Multi-Valued Logic and Logic
  website to be announced soon


The conference will be a part of the fourth Federated Logic Conference
(FLoC'06) to be held August 10-21, 2006, in Seattle, Washington
(http://research.microsoft.com/floc06/). Other participating
conferences are: Computer-Aided Verification (CAV), Rewriting Techniques
and Applications (RTA), Logic in Computer Science (LICS), Theory and
Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT), and Int'l Joint Conference
on Automated Reasoning (IJCAR). Plenary events involving multiple
conferences are planned.
