                WFLP 2018: Call for Papers

                   26th International Workshop on
           Functional and (constraint) Logic Programming
                             WFLP 2018

               Frankfurt, Germany, September 6, 2018
            (co-located with PPDP 2018 and LOPSTR 2018)

The international Workshop on Functional and (constraint) Logic
Programming (WFLP) aims at bringing together researchers, students, and
practitioners interested in functional programming, logic programming,
and their integration. WFLP has a reputation for being a lively and
friendly forum, and it is open for presenting and discussing work in
progress, technical contributions, experience reports, experiments,
reviews, and system descriptions.

The 26th International Workshop on Functional and (constraint) Logic
Programming (WFLP 2018) will be held at the Goethe-University Frankfurt
am Main, Germany. Previous WFLP editions were WFLP 2017 (Würzburg, German=

Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming) and LOPSTR 2018

The topics of interest cover all aspects of functional ang logic
programming. They include (but are not limited to):

 * Functional programming
 * Logic programming
 * Constraint programming
 * Deductive databases, data mining
 * Extensions of declarative languages, objects
 * Multi-paradigm declarative programming
 * Foundations, semantics, non-monotonic reasoning, dynamics
 * Parallelism, concurrency
 * Program analysis, abstract interpretation
 * program and model manipulation
 * Program transformation, partial evaluation, meta-programming
 * Specification, verification
 * Debugging, testing
 * Knowledge representation, machine learning
 * Interaction of declarative programming with other formalisms
 * Implementation of declarative languages
 * Advanced programming environments and tools
 * Software techniques for declarative programming
 * Applications

The primary focus is on new and original research results, but
submissions describing innovative products, prototypes under development,
application systems, or interesting experiments (e.g., benchmarks) are
also encouraged. Survey papers that present some aspects of the above
topics from a new perspective, and experience reports are also welcome.

Papers must be written and presented in English. Work that already
appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may
be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).

Important Dates

 Abstract submission: June 27, 2018
 Paper submission: July 2, 2018
 Notification: July 27, 2018
 Camera-ready (for electronic pre-proceedings): August 24, 2018
 Workshop: September 6, 2018

Submission Guidelines

Submission is via Easychair submission website for WFLP 2018:

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:

+ Regular research paper
+ Work-in-progress report
+ System description

Regular research papers must describe original work, be written and
presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers
that have been formally published or that are simultaneously submitted
to a journal, conference, or workshop with formal proceedings. They will
be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness,
originality, and clarity. For work-in-progress reports and system
descriptions, less formal rules apply, and presentation-only submissions
(talk and discussion, but no paper in the formal proceedings) are
possible. Please contact the PC chair with any questions.

All submissions must be formatted in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science style. Submissions cannot exceed 15 pages including references
but excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication.
Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should
be intelligible without them. However, all submissions (especially
work-in-progress reports and system descriptions) may be considerably
shorter than 15 pages.


All papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be published
in informal proceedings publicly available at the Computing Research
Repository. According to the program committee reviews, submissions can be
directly accepted for publication in the formal post-conference proceedings.
The formal post-conference proceedings will be published in both electronic
and paper formats by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
After the conference, all authors accepted only for presentation will be
invited to revise and/or extend their submissions in the light of the
solicited at the conference. Then, after another round of reviewing, these
revised papers may also be published in the formal proceedings.

Therefore, all accepted papers will be published in open-access, and the
authors can also decide to publish their work in the Springer LNCS formal
