4th International Workshop on
Approaches and Applications of Inductive Programming (AAIP 2011)

co-located with the
International ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative
Programming (PPDP 2011)
and the
International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation
(LOPSTR 2011).

July 19, 2011, Odense, Denmark



Inductive program synthesis or inductive programming (IP) is concerned with the
automated generation of general computer programs from incomplete
specifications such as input/output examples. IP particularly includes the
synthesis of programs that contain loops or recursive calls. This inductive
type of automated program synthesis is addressed by researchers in different
fields such as artificial intelligence, inductive logic programming,
evolutionary computation, symbolic computation, grammar inference, formal
methods, and functional programming. The aim of the AAIP workshop is to have a
common place to present and discuss research on all aspects of inductive
programming - including, but not limited to: Inductive programming algorithms,
techniques, and systems, heuristics, inductive biases, analysis of the
learnability of particular program classes, and the combination of
generate-and-test based and analytical techniques. We especially encourage
submissions on inductive programming challenge problems and real-world
applications of inductive programming in, e.g., computer-assisted software
engineering, end-user programming, and intelligent agents.

This is the fourth workshop on "Approaches and Applications of Inductive
Programming" and takes place for the first time in conjunction with PPDP and

We invite authors to submit papers reporting on original work in either of two
categories: full technical papers and short papers. Full papers should present
mature work. Short papers may be work in progress reports, descriptions of
system demonstrations, or position statements.




All accepted papers will be presented orally. Workshop (pre-)proceedings will
be published online and as a technical report. Furthermore, we plan to publish
selected and revised papers as a post-proceedings volume and sent a
corresponding request to Springer LNCS.


Submitted papers must describe original work, be written in English and should
be formatted in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science style:

Submissions can either be full papers describing mature work or short papers
describing work in progress, a system demonstration, or make a position
statement. Full and short papers should not exceed 16 and 8 pages,
respectively, including bibliography and appendices. Papers should be submitted
as PDF via the AAIP 2011 submission webpage:
