|PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, USA|
|July 14-17, 2009|
Located at the base of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains, Pasadena's central location serves as a gateway to all that Southern California has to offer. Pasadena itself offers a surprising combination of sophisticated charm, culture, history, and fun. Pasadena is Southern California's premier dining and entertainment destination, with over 500 restaurants. The city consists of several districts, including "Old Town", an historic 22-block area, offering more than 120 specialty shops, retail stores and boutiques, 80 restaurants, and an array of entertainment opportunities. Several world-class museums, including the Huntington Library and Art Gallery, the Norton Simon Museum, and the Pacific Asia Museum are located here, as well as several extensive botanical gardens at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, the Huntington Library, and Descanso Gardens, reflecting Pasadena's association with the "Rose". The city has a rich architectural heritage, which includes an unusual concentration and diversity of landmark-quality buildings dating from the late 1880s. Be sure to visit the recently renovated City Hall --- only steps away from the Pasadena Convention Center --- an exquisite 1927 landmark exhibiting Italian Renaissance and Spanish influences. Pasadena has a lively arts scene, with such diverse offerings as the famous Pasadena Playhouse or Ice House Comedy Club, which has played host to the comedic talents of Steve Martin, Robin Williams, and Lily Tomlin. Pasadena has long been considered a premier center for science and technology, serving as the home to the California Institute of Technology and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, as well as several high-profile industry partners.

Since the first conference held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been the premier international conference for presenting research in logic programming. Contributions (papers and posters) are sought in all areas of logic programming including but not restricted to:
The three broad categories for submissions are: (1) technical papers, where specific attention will be given to work providing novel integrations of the areas listed above, (2) application papers, where the emphasis will be on their impact on the application domain as opposed to the advancement of the the state-of-the-art of logic programming, and (3) short papers, ideal for presenting and discussing current work not yet ready for publication, for PhD thesis summaries and research project overviews.
In addition to papers and posters, the technical program will include invited talks, tutorials, a Doctoral Consortium, and workshops.
All papers must describe original, previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be submitted for publication elsewhere. They must be written in English. Technical and application papers must not exceed 15 pages in the Springer LNCS format. The limit for short papers is 5 pages in the same format. The proceedings, which is expected to be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series, will include all accepted papers.
The ICLP 2009 program will include several workshops. They are perhaps the best places for the presentation of preliminary work, novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and interested audience. Workshops also provide a venue for presenting specialized topics and opportuni- ties for intensive discussions and project collaboration in any areas related to logic programming, including cross-disciplinary areas. Workshop proposals are due by February 9th, 2009. Please click here to find more information on call for workshops.Accepted Workshops
The Doctoral Consortium on Logic Programming is the 5th doctoral consortium to be offered as a part of ICLP conference series. The DC aims to provide doctoral students with an opportunity to present and discuss their research directions and to obtain feedbacks from peers as well as world-renown experts in the field. The Doctoral Consortium will also offer invited speakers and panels discussions. Please click here to find more information on the doctoral consortium.
