*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 - Sister Conferences and Journal Presentation Track***
                              ICLP 2020
           The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming
                   September 18 - September 24, 2020
                  University of Calabria, Rende, Italy

The program committee of the 36th International Conference on Logic
Programming (ICLP) invites submissions of published journal papers and
papers presented at related conferences for the Sister Conferences and
Journal Presentation Track. The track is designed to provide a forum to
discuss important results related to logic programming that appeared
since 2018 in selective journals or were presented at related conferences,
but that have not been previously presented at ICLP.

The goal of this track is two-fold:

1. To provide authors an opportunity to present at the
conference important results published in journals that might otherwise
not be submitted to the conference due to their length and complexity.
Papers that differ from traditional ICLP format and topics are welcome.
2. To broaden the program with lines of work at the intersection between
logic programming and related fields such as for example constraint
programming, operations research, control, knowledge representation and
reasoning, machine learning, multi-agent systems, robotics, computer games,
and cognitive science. Papers that use logic programming in some innovative
way are welcome.

Paper Presentations:
All accepted submissions will be presented orally during the conference
- at least one author is expected to register to ICLP 2020 and to present
the paper in person. Complete citations and URLs of the original papers
(if available from the publisher) will be published on the ICLP 2020 web
site as a permanent reference. A 2-page extended abstract summarizing the
line of research leading to the presented results can optionally be
submitted for presentation in the technical communications of ICLP.

Submission Requirements:
Submissions must meet the following criteria:
• Candidate papers must be published in a journal such as
  (but not limited to) AIJ, ACM TOCL, JAIR, or other leading journals or
  in the proceedings of related conferences such as KR, LPNMR, AAMAS, AAAI,
• Candidate papers must have appeared since 2018.
• Papers that are in press may be submitted as long as the final
   camera-ready version is available at some URL (such as, ArXiv).
• Extensions of papers that have been previously presented at ICLP (or
   co-located Workshops) are not eligible for this track.

Submission Process:
All submissions will be done via EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=iclp20200). The submission will
be in the following format:
• Title and authors of the work for the ICLP Sister Conferences and
   Journal Presentation Track (to be published on the Web - see note
   below about title and authors),
• An accompanying letter containing:
      • Complete bibtex reference of the original paper (only 1 reference!)
        (to be published on the Web) + a URL where the paper can be
        downloaded from the publisher (if available) (to be published on
        the Web);
      • An explanation of why this paper is interesting to the logic
        programming community (at most 1 page in PDF).
• The original paper (in PDF) (for reviewers only, it will not be posted
   on the Web because of copyright issues) because some reviewers could be
   at universities that don’t have contracts with publishers, such as,
   Elsevier, Cambridge Publishing, ACM, etc.
• Optional: only if the authors wish to publish an extended abstract in
   the technical communications of ICLP2020 please submit a 2-page extended
   abstract of the paper (PDF in EPTCS format http://style.eptcs.org/) for
   the ICLP Sister Conferences and Journal Presentation Track (note: we will
   ask for the LaTex sources after the notification).
Note: the 2 pages abstract should not contain new material since this is
just a report of a publication in a related conference. The title should be
a bit different than the original publication (since it would look odd to
have a paper with the same title, but much shorter after the original
publication), such as, add Report or Summary in the title. It is not 
to radically change it. The authors should be the same and in the same 
with respect to the original publication. The papers in this track will be
grouped under a subsection Sister Conferences and Journal Presentation 
so other researchers can see that this is a report on the original 
We advise authors to start the paper with a sentence stating that this 
is a report or summary of the original publication (with immediately citing
that work).

Evaluation criteria:
Submissions will go through a peer review selection process. Selection 
include significance of the results and relevance to the logic programming
