WLP 2006

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, Gesellschaft
fr Logische Programmierung 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


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.
