Seven workshops will be organised in conjunction
with the main conference.
At ICLP'99, workshops will be treated
much more as first-class conference events than at the previous ICLP conferences.
The workshops have long been experienced as lively and productive forums
for discussing promising new directions and ongoing work. They are crucial
for the success of the main conference. Therefore, at ICLP'99, the workshops
will be integrated in a theme-based fashion with the regular sessions,
invited talks, tutorials and poster sessions. They will not be 'post-conference'
workshops, but THE KEY ACTIVITY of
the conference's afternoon events.
The role of workshops is to provide a platform
for the presentation of preliminary work or novel ideas in a less formal
way than the conference itself. It is an opportunity to disseminate work
in progress, particularly for new researchers. It also provides a venue
for presenting more specialised topics and opportunities for more intensive
discussions and exchange of ideas. The topics of the workshops can cover
any area related to logic programming and any related cross-disciplinary
areas. Workshops are particularly appropriate for specialized subcommunities
of researchers for whom a larger workshop or conference is not yet justified.
Workshop organizers are offered the possibility
of free electronic publishing in CoRR (http://xxx.lanl.gov/archive/cs/intro.html).
The workshops will be held in conjunction
with the 16th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP99). ICLP99
will be held in Las Cruces, a small desert town in southern New Mexico;
famous for its red and green chiles, 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.
