                            Second Call For Papers
              32nd International Conference on Logic Programming

Conference Scope

Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been
the pre-
mier international conference for presenting research in logic
Contributions are sought in all areas of logic programming, including
but not
restricted to:

 - Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Nonmonotonic Reasoning,

 - Implementation: Compilation, Virtual Machines, Parallelism,
Constraint Han-
   dling Rules, Tabling.

 - Environments: Program Analysis, Transformation, Validation,
   Debugging, Profiling, Testing.

 - Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility,
   Order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Programming Techniques.

 - Related Paradigms: Inductive and Co-inductive Logic Programming,
   Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming, SAT-Checking.

 - Applications: Databases, Big Data, Data Integration and Federation,
   ware Engineering, Natural Language Processing, Web and Semantic
   Agents, Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, and Education.

In addition to the presentations of accepted papers, the technical
will include invited talks, advanced tutorials, the doctoral
consortium, and
several workshops.

Important Dates

Paper registration (abstract): 22 April, 2016
Submission deadline: 29 April, 2016
Notification to authors: 17 June, 2016
Revision deadline (when needed): 8 July, 2016
Final notification: 22 July, 2016
Camera-ready copy due: 5 Aug, 2016

Submission Details

Submissions of regular papers must be made in the condensed TPLP
format (see
http://software.imdea.org/Conferences/ICLP2016/TPLP-ICLP-2016.tar) via
Chair (see http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iclp2016). A
paper must not exceed 14 pages including the bibliography, but the
paper may
be supplemented with appendices for proofs and details of datasets
which do
not count towards this limit and which will be available as appendices
to the
published paper. We accept three kinds of papers:

 - Technical papers for technically sound, innovative ideas that can
   the state of logic programming;

 - Application papers that impact interesting application domains;

 - System and tool papers which emphasize novelty, practicality,
   and availability of the systems and tools described.

Application, system, and tool papers need to be clearly marked in their
All submissions must be written in English and describe original,
unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for
elsewhere. Papers of the highest quality will be selected to be
published in
the journal of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP),
Cambridge Uni-
versity Press (CUP). In order to ensure the quality of the final
papers may be subject to more than one round of refereeing (within the
sion period).

The program committee may recommend some papers to be published as
communications. Technical communications (TCs) will be published by
Publishing in the OpenAccess Series in Informatics
(http://www.dagstuhl.de/publikationen/oasics/). These TC papers
should not
exceed 14 pages including bibliography. Authors can also elect to
their submissions into extended abstracts, of 2 or 3 pages, for
inclusion in
the TCs. This should allow authors to submit a long version elsewhere.
regular papers and regular TCs will be presented during the conference.

Doctoral consortium position papers, of between 10 and 14 pages, will
also be
published as TCs.

Authors of accepted papers will, by default, be automatically included
in the
list of ALP members, who will receive quarterly updates from the
Logic Pro-
gramming Newsletter at no cost.

The ICLP 2016 program will include several workshops. They are
perhaps the
best places for the presentation of preliminary work, underdeveloped
ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience with
ties for intensive discussions and project collaboration.

Autumn School on Computational Logic

A school on computational logic is planned. More up to date
information will
be available at the conference Web page.

Doctoral Consortium

The Eleventh Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides
students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research
tions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and experts in the
Accepted participants will receive partial financial support to
attend the
event and the main conference. The best paper from the DC will be
given the
opportunity to present in a session of the main ICLP conference.

Conference Venue

The venue will be the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel in Flushing,
New York
City. New York City is an international tourist destination,
receiving 56
million tourists in 2014 alone. Several sources have ranked New York
the most
photographed city in the world. Times square, known as the city's
heart, is
the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theatre district. The
Statue of
Liberty greets new arrivals to the Americas by ship in the late 19th and
20th century, and is a globally recognized symbol of the United States.
ing is associated by many with the National Tennis Centre, since
Meadows has been the home of the US Open Grand Slam tennis tournament
year since 1978.

New York is the most populous city in the United States and one of the
populous urban agglomerations in the world. Situated in one of the
largest natural harbours, New York City consists of five boroughs,
each of
which is a separate county of New York State. The conference hotel is
in the Queens borough, just a two-minute walk from the Flushing-Main
rail station. Direct train lines take you directly from there to Times
in just over 45 minutes, which is fast for New York City. The Museum of
Art can be reached in under 40 mins, Grand Central Terminal in 40
mins, the
Empire State Building under 50 mins, and The High Line Park in 50 minutes=

The hotel is also close to LaGuardia Airports and JFK. LaGuardia is
just 3
miles away and the hotel offers a complementary shuttle service.
John F.
Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is 10 miles away and can be reached
30 minutes by taxi. The hotel is situated in a vibrant Asian
district that
offers a variety of Eastern cuisine, as well as many stores and shops.


The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming (ALP=

Financial Assistance

The Association for Logic Programming has funds to assist financially
vantaged participants and, especially, students to enable them to
attend the
conference. Inquiries should be made to the general chairs.
