The 22nd edition of WLPE, the Workshop on Logic-based Methods in Programming Environments, took place in the magnificent and welcoming city of Budapest.
The aim of the workshop was to provide an informal meeting for researchers working on (logic-based) methods and tools that support the development and analysis of programs.
This year, in spite of a rather short one-afternoon program, WLPE attracted between 20 and 25 attendees. The workshop started after the last ICLP session with the invited talk Constraint-Based Runtime Prediction of SLA Violations in Service Orchestrations by Manuel Carro. Then, the program continued with talks by Jan Wielemaker, Spyros Hadjichristodoulou, Romain Demeyer and Nicos Angelopoulos on a variety of topics.
During the two sessions, we enjoyed a pleasingly intense interaction between the speakers and the audience, as well as lively and constructive discussions among the participants. Being primarily advertised as a friendly forum for the discussion of new ideas, we deem that the workshop clearly fulfilled this objective and may be called a success.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank the ICLP 2012 organizers, the WLPE Program Committee, the authors and all participants. They all made the 22nd edition of this workshop a very pleasant, instructive and worthwhile event.
