                              CALL FOR PAPERS

                        3rd International Workshop on
             the Resurgence of Datalog in Academia and Industry

                             Datalog 2.0 2019


                     June 3-5, 2019, Philadelphia, USA

                        Co-located with LPNMR 2019
                                  at the
                       Philadelphia Logic Week 2019



  Datalog 2.0 is a workshop for Datalog researchers, implementors,
  and users. Its aim is to bring together researchers and practitioners
  interested in different aspects of Datalog to share research experiences,
  promote collaboration and identify directions for joint future research.

  The 3rd International Workshop on the Resurgence of Datalog in Academia and
  Industry (Datalog 2.0 2019) will be held in Philadelphia, USA, on June 3-5,
  2019. Datalog 2.0 2019 is a major event of the Philadelphia Logic Week 2019,
  which is dedicated to the research on logic, knowledge representation, and
  reasoning. The other major event of the Philadelphia Logic Week 2019 is the
  15th International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic Reasoning
  (LPNMR 2019).

  The first edition of Datalog 2.0 was held in Oxford, UK, in 2010, and it
  was by invitation only. Since Datalog has resurrected as a lively topic
  with applications in many different areas of computer science, as well as
  industry, the second edition of the workshop, which was held in Vienna,
  Austria, in 2012, was open for submissions.


  To be announced


  Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
  research on the foundational aspects of Datalog, as well as on its applications
  in other areas of computer science and in industry. Potential areas of
  application of Datalog may include (among others):

  data management, data mining, knowledge representation and reasoning,
  cloud computing, distributed computing, logic programming, privacy and security,
  probabilistic reasoning, program analysis, programming languages, semantic web,
  social networks, streaming, verification, web services.


  Datalog 2.0 2019 welcomes two types of submissions

    * Long papers of up to 12 pages, presenting original research
    * Short papers of up to 5 pages that may contain either original ongoing research
      or recently published results

  in the following categories

    * Technical papers
    * System descriptions
    * Application descriptions

  The indicated number of pages includes title page and references. All submissions
  will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be submitted for publication in the CEUR
  Workshop proceedings (http://ceur-ws.org). Authors can opt-out if desired.

  At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop to present the work.
  Submissions must be written in English, and formatted according to Springer's
  guidelines and technical instructions available at:


  Paper submission is enabled via the Datalog 2.0 2019 EasyChair site:


  The journal Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) will devote a special
  issue for a joint event of LPNMR/Datalog 2.0. Four to six papers will be selected
  for a rapid publication. In case of invited papers for a rapid publication in TPLP,
  there should be at least 30% new content compared to the published workshop paper.
  The extra material should consist of extensions of the existing material such as proofs,
  further experimental results, and implementation details. New results could be
  included too, if appropriate. Authors invited to submit to the special issue should
  confirm that such extra material is available.

  Philadelphia, or the "City of Brotherly Love," is the sixth-largest city in the
  United States and once served as the nation's capital. Philadelphia is an active
  historical and cultural hub, and has been striving for excellence since 1776.
  The city's rich history of knowledge and academic prowess has never diminished
  as it continues to promote and foster higher education. Visitors can explore
  various attractions in and around Philadelphia, such as the Philadelphia Museum
  of Art, the Franklin Institute, the Barnes Foundation, the Reading Terminal Market,
  and much more.

  Located on the East Coast of the U.S., between New York City and Washington D.C.,
  Philadelphia is easily reachable by air, train, and car. As a testament to
  Philadelphia's commitment to educational advancement, Datalog 2.0 2019 will be held
  in one of the city's top colleges, Saint Joseph's University. Saint Joseph's
  campus is located at the outskirts of the city, in an area that features historic homes,
  green areas, and a quick connection to Philadelphia's Center City and Old City.
