Aims and Scope

This workshop aims at discussing and exchanging experience on the
design, implementation, and optimization of logic, constraint (logic)
programming systems, and other systems based on logic as a means to
express computations. Experience backed up by real implementations and
their evaluation will be given preference, as well as descriptions of
work in progress in that direction.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Sequential implementation schemes (abstract machines,
translation to other languages, etc.).

* Implementation of concurrent and distributed logic and
constraint programming systems.

* Implementation of type inference and type checking systems for
logic and constraint programming languages.

* Compile-time analysis and its application to code generation.

* Balance between compile-time effort and run-time machinery,
dynamic compilation.

* Interaction between high-level optimizations / transformations /
specialization and low-level issues.

* Memory management and garbage collection issues.

* Indexing techniques and optimizations for large size programs.

* Optimizations for program generated logic and constraint

* Implementation of logic engines in functional and object
oriented languages.

* Embedding of logic and constraint programming engines in
multi-paradigm systems.

* Implementation techniques for alternative logic engines and
inference mechanisms (ASP, SAT, QSAT, DL etc.).

* Implementation of theorem provers, proof assistants and logic
based natural language processing systems.

* Implementation of object and agent-oriented extensions to logic
and constraint programming languages.

* Object and module systems.

* Design and implementation of declarative I/O concepts for logic
and constraint programming languages.

* Implementations and ports of logic and constraint programming
systems for mobile phones and netbooks.

* Documenting, debugging, testing, and profiling tools for logic
and constraint programming systems.

* Novel compilation methods to modern hardware (e.g. GPUs).

Workshop Goals

Our intent is to bring together, in an informal setting, people
involved in research on sequential and parallel implementation
technologies for logic and constraint programming languages and
systems, in order to promote the exchange of ideas and feedback on
recent developments. We hope that the workshop will provide a meeting
point for people working on implementation technology for different
aspects of logic and constraint-based languages and systems.

Paper Submissions

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

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 page:

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.


The informal workshop proceedings will be available on-line at the
Computing Research Repository after the workshop. An electronic copy
will also be distributed during the conference.
