The 35th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2019)
Applications Track

September 21-25, 2019
Las Cruces, New Mexico (USA)


Logic programming (LP) has been widely adopted as a powerful declarative programming paradigm to build a variety of applications from research projects to industrial products, including bioinformatics, natural language understanding, robotics, etc. Motivated by such a wide range of applications, this year ICLP will have a special track dedicated to Applications of LP, to bring together LP researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry communities to share the recent advancement, challenge and insight for LP applications.

The goal of the Application Track is two-folded.  On the one side, it aims at providing a fresh impulse for the LP community to recast its interests towards solving practical problems and applications. On the other side, its goal is to attract representatives from the wider academia and industrial communities to discuss their challenges related to using LP in practical problems, applications and industrial products and their expectations of the development of theory and tools from LP community.

Expected contributions

The Applications Track at ICLP 2019 invites submissions of papers on emerging and deployed applications of LP, describing all aspects of the development, deployment, and evaluation of LP systems to solve real-world problems, including interesting case studies and benchmarks, and discussing lessons learned.

We welcome LP applications in a wide range of areas, including but not limited to:

  *   industrial applications
  *   commonsense reasoning, knowledge representation
  *   declarative problem solving
  *   education
  *   bioinformatics, computational biology
  *   life sciences, genetics, medicine, pharmacology
  *   cognitive robotics, social robotics, human-robot interactions
  *   intelligent transportation, logistics
  *   computer vision, sensing, internet of things
  *   data analysis, machine learning
  *   creative computing
  *   digital forensics, cybersecurity, blockchain
  *   economics, game theory, social choice
  *   software engineering, intelligent user interfaces
  *   multi-agent systems, argumentation, epistemic reasoning
  *   constraint programming, SAT, SMT
  *   natural language understanding, story telling, question answering
  *   explanation generation, diagnosis
  *   spatial/temporal/probabilistic reasoning
  *   planning and scheduling
  *   databases, ontologies, knowledge bases, Semantic Web

Evaluation Criteria

In this track, selection process of the highest quality papers will apply the following criteria:

  *   Significance of the real-world problem being addressed
  *   Importance and novelty of using logic programming technologies to solve this problem
  *   Evaluation and applicability of the system in real-world
  *   Reusability of datasets, case studies and benchmarks

Important Dates

  *   Abstract registration: April 27, 2019
  *   Paper submission: May 4, 2019
  *   Notification: June 19, 2019
  *   TPLP revision submission: July 3, 2019
  *   TPLP final notifications: July 17, 2019
  *   Camera-ready copy: July 31, 2017
  *   Conference: September 21-25, 2019

Submission Details

All submissions must be written in English.

  *   Regular papers (14 pages in TPLP format, including references) must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. These restrictions do not apply to previously accepted workshop papers with a limited audience and/or without archival proceedings. The accepted regular papers will be published in TPLP, along with the selected ICLP-TPLP papers.

The program committee may recommend some regular papers to be published as technical communications (TCs), along with the selected ICLP-TC papers. The authors of the TCs can also elect to convert their submissions into extended abstracts (2 or 3 pages) for inclusion in the OASIcs proceedings. This should allow authors to submit a long version elsewhere.

  *   Short papers (7 pages in OASIcs format, including references) can describe published research. The accepted short papers that describe original and previously unpublished work will be published as TCs, along with the selected ICLP-TC papers. The accepted short papers that describe published research will be made available at the conference webpage, with the permission of the authors.

All accepted regular papers and technical communications will be presented during the conference. 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.
