ICLP 2023

The 39th International Conference on Logic Programming

Imperial College London, UK

July 9 - 15, 2023

The 39th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2023) will take place from the 9th of July 2023 and will also mark the closing of the Year of Prolog celebrations.

The conference will take place in London, UK and will be hosted by the Department of Computing at Imperial College London.

Full Schedule and List of Speakers TBA

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

Theoretical Foundations

Semantics, Formalisms, Non-monotonic reasoning, Knowledge representation

Language Design and Programming Methodologies

Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher order, Meta-programming, Logic-based domain-specific languages, Programming techniques

Program Analysis and Optimization

Program analysis, Transformation, Validation, Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing, Execution visualization


Implementation Methodologies

Compilation, Virtual machines, Memory management, Parallel/distributed execution, Constraint handling rules, Tabling, Foreign interfaces, User interfaces.

Related Paradigms, Integration, and Synergies

Inductive and coinductive logic programming, Constraint logic programming, Answer set programming, Interaction with SAT, SMT and CSP solvers, Theorem proving, Argumentation, Probabilistic programming

Applications of Logic Programming

Databases, Big data, Data integration and federation, Software engineering, Natural language processing, Web and semantic web, Agents, Artificial intelligence, Computational life sciences, Cybersecurity, Robotics, Education

Tracks and Special Sessions

Besides the main track, ICLP 2023 will host additional special tracks:

Applications Track, on emerging and deployed applications of logic programming;

Thematic Tracks on

  • Logic Programming and Machine Learning

  • Logic Programming and Explainability, Ethics, and Trustworthiness

Recently Published Research Track, on important results related to logic programming that appeared recently (from January 2021 onwards) in selective journals and conferences, but have not been previously presented at ICLP.

System Demonstration Track, to showcase logic programming systems and implementations in a live setting.

Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) Sessions, meant to provide an inclusive environment for informal discussions.

ICLP2023 will also host a Doctoral Consortium, Tutorials, a Summer School, a Programming Contest and Workshops.
