ICLP 2012, the 28th International Conference on Logic Programming, will

be held in Budapest, Hungary, from September 4 to 8, 2012.


Workshops collocated with an international conference are one of the

best venues for the presentation and discussion of preliminary work,

novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience.

Collocated workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting

specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and

project collaboration. The topics of the workshops collocated with

ICLP 2012 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 should be allowed for general discussion. Workshops can

vary in length, but the optimal duration will be half a day or a full

that fit the goals and scope of ICLP will be selected.  The decision

will be notified by email to the responsible organizer by February 26,

number of submissions received by the different workshops. For every

accepted workshop, the ICLP local organizers will prepare a meeting
