                       FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS


          22nd International Conference on Logic Programming 
             Seattle, Washington, USA, 17-20 August, 2006

         Part of Fourth Federated Logic Conference, FLoC 2006


Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been
the premier international conference for presenting research in logic
programming. Contributions (papers and posters) are sought in all areas 
of logic programming including but not restricted to:

* Theory: Semantic Foundations, Formalisms, Nonmonotonic Reasoning,
  Knowledge Representation.
* Implementation: Compilation, Memory Management, Virtual Machines, 
* Environments: Program Analysis, Program Transformation, Validation and 
  Verification, Debugging, Profiling.
* Language Issues: Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher 
  Order, Types, Modes, Programming Techniques.
* Alternative Paradigms: Constraint Logic Programming, Abductive Logic 
  Programming, Inductive Logic Programming, Answer-Set Programming.
* Applications: Deductive Databases, Data Integration, Software Engineering, 
  Natural Language, Web Tools, Internet Agents, Artificial Intelligence.

The three broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers, 
where specific attention will be given to work providing novel integrations 
of the areas listed above, (2) application papers, where the emphasis
will be on their impact on the application domain as opposed to the
advancement of the the state-of-the-art of logic programming, and (3)
posters, ideal for presenting and discussing current work not yet ready 
for publication, for PhD thesis summaries and research project overviews.

In addition to papers and posters, the technical program will include 
invited talks, advanced tutorials, several workshops and  Doctoral 
Student Consortium. Details, as they become available will be posted at


Papers and posters must describe original, previously unpublished 
research, and must not be simultaneously submitted for publication 
elsewhere. They must be written in English. Technical papers and
application papers must not exceed 15 pages in the Springer LNCS 
format (cf. The 
limit for posters is 2 pages in that format. 

The primary means of submission will be electronic. More information 
on the submission procedure will be available at


The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the LNCS series. The proceedings will include the accepted papers
and the abstracts of accepted posters.


The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming.
The ALP has funds to assist financially disadvantaged participants.

The ALP is planning to sponsor two awards for ICLP'06: for the best
technical paper and for the best student paper.

The conference will be a part of the fourth Federated Logic Conference
(FLoC'06) to be held August 10-21, 2006, in Seattle, Washington
( Other participating
conferences are: Computer-Aided Verification (CAV), Rewriting Techniques
and Applications (RTA), Logic in Computer Science (LICS), Theory and
Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT), and Int'l Joint Conference
on Automated Reasoning (IJCAR). Plenary events involving multiple
conferences are planned.
