      Call for Papers

      International Conference on
      Applications of Declarative Programming
      and Knowledge Management


      University of Wuerzburg, Germany
      October 4-6, 2007


Declarative Programming is an advanced paradigm for the modeling and solving
of complex problems. This specification method has got more and more attraction
over the last years, e.g. in the domains of databases and natural language
processing, for the modeling and the processing of combinatorial problems, and
for establishing systems for the web.

INAP 2007

INAP is a communicative and dense conference for intensive discussion of
applications of important technologies around Prolog, Logic Programming,
Constraint Problem Solving and closely related advanced software.
It comprehensively covers the impact of programmable logic solvers in the
Internet Society, its underlying technologies, and leading edge applications
in industry, commerce, government, and societal services.

We invite the submission of papers on the described fields, especially,
but not excluding, on different aspects of Declarative Programming, Constraint
Processing and Knowledge Management as well as their use for Distributed
Systems and the Web:

    * Knowledge Management,
      e.g. Data Mining, Decision Support, Deductive Databases
    * Distributed Systems and the Web,
      e.g. Agents and Concurrent Engineering, Semantic Web
    * Constraints,
      e.g. Constraint Systems, Extensions of Constraint (Logic) Programming
    * Theoretical Foundations,
      e.g. Deductive Databases, Nonmonotonic Reasoning
    * Systems and Tools for Academic and Industrial Use
    * Knowledge-based Web Services - Logic Solvers and Applications

WLP 2007

The Workshops on Logic Programming (WLP) are the annual meeting of the
Society of Logic Programming (GLP e.V.); they 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.

Contributions are welcome on all theoretical, experimental, and application
aspects of constraint programming (CP) and logic programming (LP), including,
but not limited to (the order does not reflect priorities):

    * Foundations of Constraint/Logic Programming
    * Constraint Solving and Optimization
    * Extensions: Functional-Logic Programming, Objects
    * Deductive Databases, Data Mining
    * Nonmonotonic Reasoning
    * Dynamics, Updates, States, Transactions
    * Interaction of CP/LP with other formalisms like Agents, XML, JAVA
    * Program Analysis, Program Transformation, Program Verification,
      Meta Pogramming
    * Parallelism and Concurrency
    * Implementation Techniques
    * Software Techniques (e.g. Types, Modularity, Design Patterns)
    * Applications (e.g. in Production, Environment, Education, Internet)

This year, INAP and WLP will be jointly organized in order to promote the
cross-fertilizing exchange of ideas and experiences among researches and
students from the different communities interested in the foundations,
applications, and combinations of high-level, declarative programming
languages and related areas.

The technical program of the conference will include invited talks,
presentations of refereed papers and system demonstrations.

to be announced


Submissions must be written in English and can be up to 10 pages long.
All submissions must be original work. Submissions must be unpublished
and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Work that already appeared
in unpublished or informally published workshops proceedings may be

Authors are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs
class file, available at Authors' Instructions subpage.

The submission procedure is described at the WWW pages (see below);
for the INAP tracks it will be by EasyChair.
Please, indicate clearly your preference for one of the tracks of
the conference.

All accepted papers will be published in a technical report.
As for previous INAP conferences, it is planned to publish selected
papers in a post-conference proceedings volume in the Springer Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series LNCS/LNAI.
