32nd International Conference on Logic Programming

New York City, USA
October 17-21, 2016

Conference Scope

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

- Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Nonmonotonic Reasoning, Knowledge

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

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

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

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

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

In addition to the presentations of accepted papers, the technical program
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
Conference: 17-21 Oct, 2016

Submission Details

Submissions of regular papers must be made in the condensed TPLP format (see via Easy-
Chair (see A regular
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 advance
the state of logic programming;

- Application papers that impact interesting application domains;

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

Application, system, and tool papers need to be clearly marked in their title.
All submissions must be written in English and describe original, previously
unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication
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 version,
papers may be subject to more than one round of refereeing (within the deci-
sion period).

The program committee may recommend some papers to be published as technical
communications. Technical communications (TCs) will be published by Dagstuhl
Publishing in the OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs)
( These TC papers should not
exceed 14 pages including bibliography. Authors can also elect to convert
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. All
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 novel
ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience with opportuni-
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 research
students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research direc-
tions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and experts in the field.
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 early
20th century, and is a globally recognized symbol of the United States. Flush-
ing is associated by many with the National Tennis Centre, since Flushing
Meadows has been the home of the US Open Grand Slam tennis tournament every
year since 1978.

New York is the most populous city in the United States and one of the most
populous urban agglomerations in the world. Situated in one of the world's
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 situated
in the Queens borough, just a two-minute walk from the Flushing-Main Street
rail station. Direct train lines take you directly from there to Times Square
in just over 45 minutes, which is fast for New York City. The Museum of Modern
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 within
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 disad-
vantaged participants and, especially, students to enable them to attend the
conference. Inquiries should be made to the general chairs.
