                            20th Workshop on
                            Logic Programming

                          February 22 - 24, 2006
                  Vienna University of Technology, Austria
                ***Submission deadline: November 14, 2005***



The series of workshops on (constraint) logic programming serve
as the annual meeting of the Society of Logic Programming (GLP e.V.)
and bring together researchers interested in logic programming,
constraint programming, and related areas like databases and artificial
intelligence. Previous workshops have been held in Germany, Austria and
Switzerland. The workshops provide a forum for exchanging ideas on
declarative logic programming, nonmonotonic reasoning and knowledge
representation, and facilitate interactions between research in theoretical
foundations and in the design and implementation of logic-based programming
systems. The technical program of the workshop will include invited talks,
presentations of refereed papers, and system demonstrations.


Contributions are welcome on all theoretical, experimental,
and application aspects of constraint and logic programming,
including, but not limited to the following areas (the order
does not reflect any priorities):

* Theoretical aspects:
  o foundations of constraint programming (CP) and logic programming (LP);
  o constraint solving and optimization;
  o extensions: functional logic programming, objects;
  o deductive databases, data mining;
  o nonmonotonic reasoning;
  o dynamics, updates, states, transactions;
  o interaction of CP/LP with other formalisms like agents, XML, JAVA;
  o program analysis, program transformation, program verification,
    meta pogramming;
  o parallelism and concurrency;
  o rule-based systems;
  o abductive and inductive logic programming;
  o answer-set programming;
  o complexity and expressive power.

* Implementation of systems:
  o system descriptions, comparisons, evaluations;
  o benchmarks;
  o implementation techniques;
  o software techniques (e.g., types, modularity, design patterns, debugging).

* Application of logic programming:
  o logic programming in production, management, environment,
    education, medicine, internet, etc.;
  o CP/LP for Semantic Web applications and reasoning on the Semantic Web;
  o data modelling for the Web, semistructured data, and Web query languages;
  o knowledge representation and reasoning.

The primary focus is on new and original research results but
submissions describing innovative products, prototypes under
development, or interesting experiments (e.g., benchmarks) are
also encouraged.


Submission of papers: November 14, 2005
Notification of acceptance: December 19, 2005
