July 14-17, 2009
ICLP 2009, the 25th International Conference on Logic Programming,
be held in Pasadena (USA), from July 14 to 17, 2009.
Workshops co-located with international conferences are one of the
best venue for the presentation and discussion of preliminary work,
novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience.
Co-located workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting
specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and
project collaboration. The topics of the workshops co-located with
ICLP 2009 can cover any areas related to logic programming, (e.g.,
theory, implementation, environments, language issues, alternative
paradigms, applications), including cross-disciplinary areas.
However, any workshop proposal will be considered.
The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organizers,
but ample time must be allowed for general discussion. Workshops can
vary in length, but the optimal duration will be half a day or a full
