34th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2018)
First Call for Papers

July 14-17, 2018
Oxford, UK

The 34th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2018) will take place in Oxford, U.K. as part of FLOC'2018 (http://www.floc2018.org/) from July 14 to July 17, 2018.

ICLP is the premier conference on foundations and applications of logic programming, including but not restricted to answer-set programming, non-monotonic reasoning, unification and constraints based logic languages, constraint handling rules, argumentation logics, deductive databases, description logics, inductive and co-inductive logic programming.

Papers are solicited on:

* Foundations: semantics, execution algorithms, formal models
* Implementation: virtual machines, compilation, memory management, 
  parallel execution, foreign interfaces
* Language Design: inference engines, type systems, concurrency and 
  distribution, modules, metaprogramming, relations to object-oriented 
  and functional programming, logic-based domain-specific languages
* Software-Development Techniques: declarative algorithms and data 
  structures, design patterns, debugging, testing, profiling, execution 
* Transformation and Analysis:  assertions, type and mode inference, 
  partial evaluation, abstract interpretation, program transformations 
* Applications and Synergies:  interaction with SAT, SMT and CSP solvers, 
  logic programming techniques for type inference and theorem proving, 
  Horn-clause analysis, knowledge representation, cognitive computing, 
  artificial intelligence, natural language processing, information 
  retrieval, web programming, education, computational life sciences, 
  computational mathematics.

Submission Details:
Submissions of regular papers must be made in the condensed TPLP format via EasyChair. A regular paper must not exceed 14 pages including the bibliography, but the paper may be supplemented with appendices for proofs and details of datasets. These will not not count towards this limit and will be available as supplementary material to the published paper in the TPLP website. We accept three kinds of papers:

- Technical papers for technically sound, innovative ideas that can 
  advance the state of logic programming;
- Application papers that impact interesting application domains;
- System and tool papers which emphasize novelty, practicality, usability, 
  and availability of the systems and tools described.

Application, system, and tool papers need to be clearly marked in their title. All submissions must be written in English and describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers of the highest quality will be selected to be published in the journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge University Press (CUP). 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).

The program committee may recommend some papers to be published as Technical Communications (TCs). TCs will be published by Dagstuhl Publishing in the OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs). TCs must follow the OASIcs format (template available here) and not exceed 14 pages excluding the bibliography and a short appendix (up to 5 more pages). TC’s authors can also elect to convert their submissions into extended abstracts, of 2 or 3 pages, for inclusion in the OASIcs proceedings. This should allow authors to submit a long version elsewhere.

Doctoral consortium position papers, of between 10 and 14 pages, will also be published as TCs.

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.
