    Aims and Scope

    This workshop aims at discussing and exchanging experience on the
    design, implementation, and optimization of logic, constraint (logic) programming systems, and other systems based on logic as a means to
    express computations. Experience backed up by real implementations and
    their evaluation will be given preference, as well as descriptions of
    work in progress in that direction.

    Topics include, but are not limited to:

    * Sequential implementation schemes (abstract machines,
    translation to other languages, etc.).

    * Implementation of concurrent and distributed logic and
    constraint programming systems.

    * Implementation of type inference and type checking systems for
    logic and constraint programming languages.

    * Compile-time analysis and its application to code generation.

    * Balance between compile-time effort and run-time machinery,
    dynamic compilation.

    * Interaction between high-level optimizations / transformations /
    specialization and low-level issues.

    * Memory management and garbage collection issues.

    * Indexing techniques and optimizations for large size programs.

    * Optimizations for program generated logic and constraint

    * Implementation of logic engines in functional and object
    oriented languages.

    * Embedding of logic and constraint programming engines in
    multi-paradigm systems.

    * Implementation techniques for alternative logic engines and
    inference mechanisms (ASP, SAT, QSAT, DL etc.).

    * Implementation of theorem provers, proof assistants and logic
    based natural language processing systems.

    * Implementation of object and agent-oriented extensions to logic
    and constraint programming languages.

    * Object and module systems.

    * Design and implementation of declarative I/O concepts for logic
    and constraint programming languages.

    * Implementations and ports of logic and constraint programming
    systems for mobile phones and netbooks.

    * Documenting, debugging, testing, and profiling tools for logic
    and constraint programming systems.

    * Novel compilation methods to modern hardware (e.g. GPUs).

    Workshop Goals

    Our intent is to bring together, in an informal setting, people
    involved in research on sequential and parallel implementation
    technologies for logic and constraint programming languages and
    systems, in order to promote the exchange of ideas and feedback on
    recent developments. We hope that the workshop will provide a meeting
    point for people working on implementation technology for different
    aspects of logic and constraint-based languages and systems.

    Paper Submissions

    Submission Categories

    The workshop welcomes a range of different submissions, including contributions to theory, reports of interesting applications, reports of work in progress, experience papers, suggestions for new challenging problems, system descriptions, comparison and discussion papers, and improvements to known results/proofs/implementations. We distinguish several different categories:

    * Novel Research: Abstracts, Short and Long Papers

    These are works on novel research contributions at any stage in the
    research process (hence the choice of format). These can also be extended
    papers of short technical communications at ICLP.

    * Talk Proposals: Abstracts

    These are proposals for talks about papers already submitted or presented
    elsewhere or has appeared in a journal. For instance, these can be extended
    presentations of the short technical communication talks at ICLP.

    For all accepted submissions, at least one author is required to attend the workshop and give a presentation of 30 minutes including discussion.

    Submission Procedure

    All submissions (talk abstracts, short and long papers) must be written in English and use Springer's LNCS format. Abstracts are 1-2 pages, short papers 5-6, and long papers up to 15 pages.

    Submit through EasyChair:

    New Reviewing Procedure

    To provide a fast notification, before the common FLoC deadline, the reviewing will proceed in two stages:

    In the first phase the program chair and program committee perform a quick review of the papers to determine their suitability for acceptance. The authors are notified of this decision on May 11.

    In the second phase, the program committee performs a more in-depth review, to provide the authors with useful feedback to revise their submission. The authors receive these reviews on May 25 and have until June 25 to produce their final copy.


    The proceedings are informal and will be available from the CICLOPS website and as a KU Leuven technical report.
