|September 4-8, 2012|
The Conference will located in Tulip Inn Budapest Millennium. Budapest is in the center of Hungary, in the heart of Central Europe. Hungary is member of the European Union and belongs to the Schengen area.
Since the first conference held in Marseille 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:
All accepted (long) papers will be published in the journal Theory
and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge U. 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) and/or "shepherding".
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 lifetime access to the web site
for the online version of the issue(s).
Pointers to the arXiv/CoRR versions of these papers will be guaranteed
from the ALP website www.logicprogramming.org.
Attendants will also receive all the papers in a memory stick at the conference.
All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. They must be written in English.
The four broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers for describing technically sound, innovative ideas that can advance the state of the art 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 general availability of the systems and tools described; and (4) technical communications, aimed at describing recent developments, new projects, and other materials that are not ready for main publication as standard papers.
Technical papers, application papers, and system and tool papers must not exceed 15 pages plus bibliography. The limit for technical communications is 10 pages. Submissions of 15-page papers must be made in TPLP format via the Easychair submission system. The formatting instructions for technical communications are available from LIPIcs here.
The ICLP 2012 program will include several workshops, held in parallel with the main conference. They are perhaps the best places for the presentation of preliminary work, undeveloped novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience with opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration. Workshops also provide a venue for presenting specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration in any areas related to logic programming, including cross-disciplinary areas.Accepted Workshops
The 8th Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides research students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research directions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and world-renown experts in the field. It will take place on September 4th . Accepted participants will receive partial financial support to attend the event and the main conference. The best paper and presentation from the DC will be given the opportunity to present in a special session of the main ICLP conference.
Detailed tourist and travel information can be obtained from here. Hungary is well-served by transport links from abroad. The main international airport is Budapest Ferihegy. Budapest is linked to 15 European capitals by train, directly or indirectly (details); e.g. a Wien-Budapest trip is less than 3 hours.Association for Logic Programming (ALP), by the Artificial Intelligence Section of the John von Neumann Computer Society, by AIT-Budapest (Aquincum Institute of Technology), by Alerant Inc, by Google, through its Conference Grant for female computer scientists, and by Budapest University of Technology and Economics providing computer resources and hosting the conference webpage.
