ICLP 2015 Call for Workshops

ICLP 2015, the 31st International Conference on Logic Programming, will be held in Cork, Ireland, from August 31 to September 4, 2015. The conference is is part of The Year of George Boole, a celebration of the life and work of George Boole who was born in 1815 and worked at the University College of Cork. ICLP 2015 will also be collocated with CP 2015.

Workshops collocated with an international conference are one of the best venues for the presentation and discussion of preliminary work, novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience. Collocated workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration. The topics of the workshops collocated with ICLP 2015 can cover any areas related to logic programming, (e.g., theory, implementation, environments, language issues, alternative paradigms, applications), including cross-disciplinary areas. However, any relevant workshop proposal will be considered.

The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organizers, but ample time should be allowed for general discussion. Workshops can vary in length, but the optimal duration will be half a day or a full day.

Workshop Proposal

Those interested in organizing a workshop at ICLP 2015 are invited to submit a workshop proposal. Proposals should be in English and about two pages in length. They should contain:

  • The title of the workshop.
  • A brief technical description of the topics covered by the workshop.
  • A discussion of the timeliness and relevance of the workshop.
  • A list of some related workshops held in the last years
  • The requested number of half-days allotted to the workshop and an estimate of the number of expected attendees.
  • The names, affiliation and contact details (email, web page, phone) of the workshop organizers together with a designated contact person.
  • Previous experience of the workshop organizers in workshop/conference organization.

Proposals are expected in text or PDF format. All proposals should be submitted to the Workshop Chair by email by March 1, 2015.

Reviewing Process

Each submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Workshop, Program and General Chairs. Proposals that appear well-organized and that fit the goals and scope of ICLP will be selected.  The decision will be notified by email to the responsible organizer by March 15, 2015.

The definitive length of the workshop will be planned according to the number of submissions received by the different workshops. For every accepted workshop, the ICLP local organizers will prepare a meeting room. The proceedings should be produced and distributed (usually via web pages) by each workshop organizer.

Workshop Organizers' Tasks

  • Producing a "Call for Papers" for the workshop and posting it on the Internet and other means.  A web page URL which will linked into the ICLP 2015 home page should be provided by April 10, 2015.

  • Reviewing/accepting submitted papers.
  • Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the local organizers and the Workshop Chair.
