the Sixteenth International Conference on Logic Programming will be a unique
event in several ways. It will be organized in an integrated, theme-based
way, with workshops, tutorials, invited talks and regular conference presentations
grouped along key topics. Other new features will include a fully open
poster session and mini-tutorials to introduce the more specialized sessions
The conference will be held in Las Cruces, a small desert town in southern New Mexico; famous for its red and green chilis, hot Mexican food, and its old western traditions. The weather is warm and sunny all year round. Recreational opportunities abound, with ski resorts, hiking trails, casinos, etc. only short driving distances away.
LPNMR'99, the International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-Monotonic Reasoning, will also be held from Dec. 2 to Dec. 4 in El Paso, New Mexico, only 30 miles away from Las Cruces.
NLULP'99, the Natural Language Understanding and Logic Programming workshop will also co-locate with ICLP'99.
Joint events, as well as the possibility
of reduced joint registration are planned.
Since the first ICLP, held in Marseilles
in 1982, ICLP has been the premier international conference for presenting
research into logic programming. Original papers are sought in all
areas of logic programming including (but not restricted to):
to object orientation, to component-based and Internet-based development, and to new applications of logic programming in general.
The technical program will include several invited talks and advanced tutorials in addition to the presentations of the accepted papers. The invited speakers include
Papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, be written and presented in English, not exceed 15 pages (A4 or letter format, up to 5,000 words), and not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere.
Papers should clearly express the contribution of the paper, both in general and in technical terms. It is essential to identify what was accomplished, describe its significance, and explain how the paper compares with and advances previous work. Authors should make every effort to make the technical content understandable to a broad audience.
Submission will proceed in two phases: abstract submission and full paper submission. For both, the primary means of submission will be electronic. Details on how to submit electronically can be found on the submission page. Only if electronic submission is not possible, 5 hard copies of your paper should be sent to the program chair at the postal address given below. Also, if it is impossible to submit your abstract electronically, a letter with a plain text abstract of about 200 words and the names, e-mail addresses if possible, and postal addresses of all authors, must be sent to the program chair. The letter must be received by May 4, 1999. The full submissions must be received by May 10, 1999. Both are hard deadlines.
Workshop proposals: March 1, 1999.
