          [Apologies in case of receiving multiple copies.]
                           CALL FOR PAPERS
    26th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2010)
               Theory and Practice of Logic Programming
             Edinburgh, Scotland, U.K., July 16-19, 2010
                ICLP 2010 will be held as part of the
             Fifth Federated Logic Conference (FLoC 2010)

             Submission deadline: ** January 26, 2010 ***



Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been
the premier international conference for presenting research in logic
programming. Contributions (papers and posters) are sought in all
areas of logic programming including but not restricted to:

Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Non-monotonic Reasoning,
    Knowledge Representation.
Implementation: Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines,
Environments: Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation,
    Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing.
Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher
    Order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Programming Techniques.
Related Paradigms: Abductive Logic Programming, Inductive Logic
    Programming, Constraint Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming.
Applications: Databases, Data Integration and Federation, Software
    Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Web and Semantic Web,
    Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics.

In addition to the presentations of accepted papers, the technical
program will include plenary invited talks in association with other
FLoC conferences, as well as ICLP invited talks, advanced tutorials,
the doctoral consortium, and several workshops.


The four broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers
for describing technically sound, innovative ideas that can advance
the state of the art of logic programming; (2) application papers,
where the emphasis will be on their impact on the application domain;
(3) system and tool papers, where the emphasis will be on the novelty,
practicality, usability and general availability of the systems and
tools described; and (4) short papers/posters, for ongoing work not
yet ready for full publication and research project overviews.

    All papers must describe original, previously unpublished
research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication
elsewhere. They must be written in English. Technical papers,
application papers, and system and tool papers must not exceed 15
pages. The limit for short papers / posters is 5 pages. Submissions
must be made in TPLP format
( via
the Easychair submission system, available at

 Paper registration deadline: January 26, 2010
 Submission deadline: February 2, 2010
 Notification to authors: March 20, 2010
 Camera-ready copy due: April 21, 2010
 Conference: July 16-19, 2010


All accepted long papers will be published in the journal Theory and
Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP), Cambridge U. Press (CUP), in one
or more special issues.

    In order to ensure the quality of the final version, papers may be
subject to more than one round of refereeing (within the decision
period) and/or "shepherding."

    At the time of the conference CUP will make the web page for
this(ese) TPLP issue(s) available including volume and issue numbers,
table of contents, page numbers, and the papers themselves. All
registered attendants at the conference will get a password for
on-line access to this web page during the conference and indefinitely
from then on ("lifetime access"), which can be used to read papers on
line, download them, or print them for personal use. Attendants will
also receive all the papers in a USB memory stick at the conference.

    For short papers / posters the journal issue(s) will include a
listing of the titles and authors of these papers, as well as a URL
pointing to their printable copy. Short papers / posters will also get
space in the program for presentation.

The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming.


The Association for Logic Programming has funds to assist financially
disadvantaged participants and, specially, students in order to be
able to attend the conference.


The ICLP 2010 program will include several workshops, held also as
part of FLoC. They are perhaps the best places for the presentation of
preliminary work, undeveloped novel ideas, and new open problems to a
wide and interested audience with opportunities for intensive
discussions and project collaboration.


The 6th Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides
research students with the opportunity to present and discuss their
research directions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and
world-renown experts in the field. Accepted participants will receive
partial financial support to attend the event and the main
conference. The best paper and presentation from the DC will be given
the opportunity to present in a special session of the main ICLP


In 2010 (as in the previous two FLoC editions) ICLP will be held as
part of the Fifth Federated Logic Conference, FLoC 2010 in Edinburgh,
Scotland, U.K., July 16-19, 2010. FLoC is held every four years
bringing together several international conferences related to
mathematical logic and computer science. Other participating
conferences are:

   - Computer-Aided Verification (CAV),
   - Int'l Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning (IJCAR),
   - Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP),
   - Logic in Computer Science (LICS),
   - Rewriting Techniques and Applications (RTA), and
   - Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT).

Plenary events involving multiple conferences are planned.
