This workshop is a continuation of the series of workshops on
Implementations of Logic Programming Systems, previously held with
considerable success in Budapest (1993), Santa Margherita (1994)
and Ithaca (1994), as well as the Compulog Net workshops on
Parallelism and Implementation Technologies held in Madrid (1993-4),
Utrecht (1995), Bonn (1996), Port Jefferson (1997), Manchester (1998),
Las Cruces (1999), and London (2000). This year, the event will join
forces with TRICS (Techniques for Implementing Constraint Programming
Systems), previously held in Singapore (2000), thus providing coverage
to implementation technology for both Logic and Constraint Programming.

The last years have seen continuous progress in the computing technology
available both for the academic and commercial computing environments.
Examples include improved processor performance, increased memory capacity
and bandwidth, faster networking technology, and Operating System support for
cluster computing. Combined with recent advances in compilation
technologies, these improvements are causing high-level languages to be
regarded as good candidates for programming complex, real world

Logic Programming and Constraint Programming, in particular, seem to offer
one of the best alternatives, as they couple a very high level of
abstraction and a declarative nature with an extreme flexibility in the
design of its execution model. 

The main intent of this workshop is to bring together, in an informal
and friendly setting, key researchers on implementation technologies
for logic and constraint-based languages and systems, in order to promote 
a much needed exchange of ideas and feedback on recent developments.

The workshop is focused on design and implementation of logic and 
constraint programming systems whether sequential, parallel, 
or concurrent.  Preference will be given to the analysis and description
of implemented systems (or systems currently under implementation) and
their associated techniques, problems found in their development or
design, and steps taken towards the solution of these problems.

Suggested topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  - standard and non-standard implementation schemes
        e.g. modification of WAM, translation to C,
             native-code generation etc.
  - optimizing compilers and static analysis
  - parallelism and concurrency 
  - techniques for the implementation of different extensions of 
	logic  and constraint programming, e.g., multi-paradigm 
	languages and systems, non-monotonic reasoning systems, inductive 
	logic programming
  - benchmarking and performance evaluation
  - Software design aspects of LP/CP systems: components, patterns, 
  - memory management and garbage collection
  - programming environments
  - tools for internet applications
  - experiences from using systems in real-life applications
