*IMPORTANT NOTE: We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation
from local authorities and the World Health Organization. ICLP 2020 is
half a year away, and we are confident that COVID-19 emergency will pass
  over and the conference will be held in September, as planned. And, if
necessary, alternative solutions, such as postponement, remote
presentations, etc will be looked into and identified.*

                *** CALL FOR PAPERS - APPLICATIONS TRACK ***
                                ICLP 2020
             The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming
                      September 18 - September 24, 2020
                     University of Calabria, Rende, Italy

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, maritime situational awareness, etc.
Motivated by such a wide range of applications, ICLP will have a special
track dedicated to Applications of LP, to bring together LP researchers
and practitioners from both academia and industry, to share the recent
advancements, challenges and insight for LP applications.

The goal of the Application Track is two-fold. 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 from the development of theory and tools from the LP

Expected contributions:
The Applications Track at ICLP 2020 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:

  ⁃ stream reasoning
  ⁃ composite event recognition
  ⁃ 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, maritime situational awareness
  ⁃ 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 addition to the usual evaluation criteria concerning the quality of
the presentation, for the Applications track the criteria will include:
  ⁃ Significance of the real-world problem being addressed.
  ⁃ Importance and novelty of using LP technologies to solve this problem.
  ⁃ Evaluation and applicability of the system in the real world.
  ⁃ Clear evidence of the potential benefits of applying and improving LP
    tools and techniques.
  ⁃ Reproducibility of empirical analysis; reusability of datasets, case
    studies, knowledge repositories and benchmarks.

Important Dates:
Abstract registration (regular papers): May 8, 2020
Paper submission (regular paper): May 15, 2020
Notification to authors (regular paper): June 19, 2020
Paper Submission (short papers): June 30, 2020
Revision submission (TPLP papers): July 6, 2020
Final notifications (TPLP papers): July 17, 2020
Camera-ready copy due: July 27, 2020
Main Conference starts: September 19, 2020

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 proceedings. This should allow authors to submit a
    long version elsewhere.
  • Short papers (7 pages in EPTCS format (http://info.eptcs.org/),
    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
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.
