Call For Papers


19th International Conference on
Applications of Declarative Programming
and Knowledge Management (INAP 2011)


25th Workshop on Logic Programming
(WLP 2011)

Vienna, Austria, September 28-30, 2011

***New submission deadline: July 15, 2011***

Declarative programming is an advanced paradigm for the modeling and solving
of complex problems. This specification method attracted increased attention
over the last decades, 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 2011

INAP is a communicative and dense conference for intensive discussion of
applications of important technologies around logic programming, constraint
problem solving, and closely related computing paradigms. 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 high quality contributions on different aspects of declarative
programming, constraint processing and knowledge management, as well as their
use for distributed systems and the Web, including, but not limited to the
following areas (the order does not reflect any priorities):

* 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, knowledge representation;
* systems and tools for academic and industrial use;
* knowledge-based Web services - logic solvers and applications.

This year, INAP consists of the following five tracks, covering relevant
subareas of declarative methods:

* Nonmonotonic Reasoning Track;
* Applications Track;
* Extensions of Logic Programming Track;
* Constraint Programming Track;
* Databases and Data Mining Track.

WLP 2011

The workshops on (constraint) logic programming serve as the scientific forum
of the annual meeting of the Society of Logic Programming (GLP, Gesellschaft
fuer Logische Programmierung e.V.). They bring together researchers interested
in logic programming, constraint programming, and related areas like databases,
artificial intelligence, and operations research. Previous workshops have been
held in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Egypt.

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

* foundations of CP and LP;
* constraint solving and optimization;
* extensions: functional logic programming, objects;
* deductive databases, data mining;
* knowledge representation and reasoning;
* answer-set programming;
* dynamics, updates, states, transactions;
* interaction of CP and LP with other formalisms like agents, XML, JAVA;
* program analysis, program transformation, program verification,
meta programming;
* parallelism and concurrency;
* implementation techniques;
* software techniques and programming support (e.g., types,
modularity, design patterns, debugging, testing, systematic program
* applications of logic programming;
* CP/LP for the Semantic Web.

The joint INAP and WLP event aims 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 event will include invited talks, presentations
of refereed papers, and system demonstrations.

Important Dates

Paper registration: July 8, 2011 (NEW!)
Deadline for submissions: July 15 2011 (EXTENDED!)
Notification of authors: August 12, 2011 (EXTENDED!)
Camera-ready papers: August 22, 2011 (EXTENDED!)
Conference & Workshop: September 28-30, 2011


Authors are invited to submit long papers (no longer than 15 pages) or
short papers (no longer than 6 pages) in the following categories:

* technical papers;
* application papers;
* system descriptions.

To mark the 25th anniversary of the WLP workshop series, we also encourage
submissions to WLP 2011 (no longer than 6 pages) describing historical
aspects of logic programming as well as personal reminiscences about the
early days of logic programming.

Submissions must be unpublished original work and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. However, work that already appeared in informally published workshop
proceedings may be submitted too. All submissions must be in PDF format using
LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs.cls class file. Paper submission is electronic
via the Easychair submission system, available at



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