CALL FOR PAPERS

SPECIAL ISSUE OF THEORY AND PRACTICE OF LOGIC PROGRAMMING ON
NEW TRENDS OF CONSTRAINT LOGIC PROGRAMMING

http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayJournal?jid=TLP

The notion of constraint logic programming was introduced in
the middle Eighties. CLP(X) languages were the first languages
capable of integrating "traditional" declarative programming
and constraint programming. Later, the success of the Answer
Set Programming paradigm and of its solvers allowed the
community to use not only a knowledge representation (KR)
language, but also a language perfectly suited for encoding
problems in the classes NP and Sigma P 2.

The efficiency of the solvers is in part due to their
implementation of conflict-driven learning. Similar techniques
have also been exploited by SAT solving. However, ASP and SAT
are rather limited by grounding as soon as the problems require
the encoding of large integer or, even worse, rational domains.
In response, several proposals emerged in both communities for
adding constraints on different domains that can be dealt with
mixed techniques using external solvers, leading to research
directions known as satisfiability modulo theories (SMT) and
constraint answer set programming (CASP). Moreover, also
traditional CLP solvers have been extended so as to exploit
tabling, external solvers, and parallelism, and support the
Minizinc paradigm.

In this issue we would like to investigate recent results on
this emerging modern view of Constraint Logic Programming that
builds on the developments mentioned above. We would also like
to explore applications of this new technology.
