                       WLPE'08 -- Call for Papers

The 18th Workshop on Logic-based methods in  Programming Environments


                  December 9th-13th 2008, Udine, Italy

                   (Satellite Workshop of ICLP 2008)

The 18th  Workshop on Logic-based methods  in Programming Environments
will  take place in  Udine (Italy),  as a  satellite workshop  of ICLP
2008,  the 24th  International Conference  on Logic  Programming. This
workshop  will   continue  the  series   of  successful  international
workshops on logic programming  environments held in Ohio, USA (1989),
Eilat,  Israel  (1990), Paris,  France  (1991),  Washington D.C.,  USA
(1992),  Vancouver,  Canada  (1993),  Santa Margherita  Ligure,  Italy
(1994), Portland, USA (1995),  Leuven, Belgium (1997), Las Cruces, USA
(1999),  Paphos, Cyprus  (2001), Copenhagen,  Denmark  (2002), Mumbai,
India  (2003), Saint  Malo, France  (2004), Sitges  (Barcelona), Spain
(2005),  Seattle,  USA  (2006)   and  Porto,  Portugal  (2007).   More
information  about  the series  of  WLPE  workshops  can be  found  at

The  workshop aims at  providing an  informal meeting  for researchers
working  on  logic-based  methods  and  tools  which  support  program
development  and  analysis.   This  year,  we  plan  to  continue  and
consolidate  the shift  in focus  from environmental  tools  for logic
programming  to  logic-based environmental  tools  for programming  in
general, so that this workshop can be possibly interesting for a wider
scientific   community.   In  addition   to  papers   describing  more
conceptual  and theoretical  work, the  call for  papers  will solicit
papers describing the implementation of, and the experience with, such
tools.  Areas  particularly relevant to the workshop  include (but are
not limited to):

   -  static and dynamic analysis
   -  debugging and testing
   -  program verification and validation
   -  code generation from specifications
   -  termination and non-termination analysis
   -  reasoning on occurs-check freeness and determinacy
   -  profiling and performance analysis
   -  type- and mode analysis
   -  module systems
   -  optimization tools

Authors who are interested in taking part in the workshop, but are
unsure if their work falls within its scope, are invited to contact
the organizers and will be given suitable advice.
