Aims and Scope:

Software plays a crucial role in modern society. While the
continuous advent of faster, smaller and more powerful
computing devices makes the development of new and
interesting applications feasible, it puts even more demands
on the software developer. Indeed, while software keeps on
growing in size and complexity, it is more than ever
required to be delivered on time, free of error and to meet
the most stringent efficiency requirements. Consequently, it
is widely recognized that there is a need for methods and
tools that support the programmer in every aspect of the
software development process.

Having logic as the underlying formalism means that
logic-based analysis techniques are often successfully used
for program verification and optimization. Emerging
programming paradigms and growing complexity of the
properties to be verified pose new challenges for the
community, while emerging reasoning techniques can be

The International Colloquium on Implementation of Constraint
and LOgic Programming Systems (CICLOPS) provides a forum to
discuss the design, implementation, and optimization of
logic, constraint (logic) programming systems, and other
systems based on logic as a means of expressing
computations. Experience backed up by real implementations
and their evaluation is given preference, as well as
descriptions of work in progress in that direction.

The aim of the Workshop on Logic-based methods in
Programming Environments (WLPE) is to provide an informal
meeting for researchers working on logic-based methods and
tools that support program development and analysis. As in
recent years, these topics include not only environmental
tools for logic programming, but increasingly also
logic-based environmental tools for programming in general
and frameworks and resources for sharing in the logic
programming community.

The combination of these two areas of interest in this
year's joint workshop provides a forum to discuss together
the states of the art for using logic both in the evaluation
of programs and in meta-reasoning about programs.

Areas particularly relevant to the joint workshop include
(but are not limited to):
* implementation schemes
* concurrent and distributed logic and constraint
    programming systems
* dynamic compilation
* memory management and garbage collection
* indexing techniques and optimizations for large size
* embedding of logic and constraint programming engines in
    multi-paradigm systems
* alternative logic engines and inference mechanisms (ASP,
    SAT, QSAT, DL, etc.)
* theorem provers
* proof assistants
* logic-based natural language processing systems
* design and implementation of de\-clarative I/O concepts
* static and dynamic analysis
* debugging and testing
* program verification and validation
* code generation from specifications
* termination analysis
* reasoning on occurs-check freeness and determinacy
* profiling and performance analysis
* type and mode analysis
* shape, points-to and escape analysis
* module systems
* optimization tools
* program understanding
* refactoring
* logical meta-languages

Due to the strong overlap between the CICLOPS-WLPE community
and several FLoC communities (in particular logic
(programming), verification, automated reasoning, rewriting
techniques, and SAT solving), the workshop is affiliated to
several conferences:
* 30th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP)
* 26th International Conference on Computer Aided
    Verification (CAV)
* 7th International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning
* Joint meeting of the 23rd EACSL Annual Conference on
    Computer Science Logic (CSL) and the 9th ACM/IEEE
    Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS)
* 25th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and
    Applications (RTA) joined with the 12th International
    Conference on Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications (TLCA)
* 17th International Conference on Theory and Applications
    of Satisfiability Testing (SAT)

Paper Submissions:

The workshop will welcome all papers that are technically
sound and on-topic, including contributions to theory,
reports of interesting applications or work in progress,
experience papers, suggestions for new challenging problems,
system descriptions, comparison and discussion papers, and
improvements to known results/proofs/implementations.

A program committee consisting of members from different
research groups in the area will review the submissions on
EasyChair. Papers will be reviewed by at least two, and
usually three, referees. While we expect to accept all
papers that are technically sound and on-topic, if the
number of submissions is significantly higher than expected,
the program committee will perform a selection to ensure the
feasibility of the program.

All papers must be written in English and should not exceed
15 pages. We welcome also shorter submissions, e.g.,
extended abstracts and short papers, of at least 3 pages.
For all accepted papers, at least one author is required to
attend the workshop and give a presentation of 30 minutes
including discussion.

Submissions must be made in Springer's LNCS format via the

We will use the opportunity of the FLoC USB proceedings to
distribute the proceedings among the participants.
Furthermore, the informal proceedings will be made available
electronically as an RWTH Aachen University Technical Report
(AIB). We will additionally use the Computing Research
Repository (CoRR) for the workshop proceedings. In case of a
sufficient number of high-quality submissions, selected
papers may be suggested for a special issue of a journal
(provided agreement of the authors).
