                      CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

     27th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2011)
              Theory and Practice of Logic Programming

            Lexington, Kentucky, USA, July 6-10, 2011




Registration Site is now open. Early registration is until May 31st, 2011


Since the first conference held in Marseille in 1982, ICLP has been the
premier international conference for presenting research in logic
programming. This year conference will offer invited talks and tutorials, as
well as technical presentations on the broad spectrum of most recent
research topics in the field. The conference will also host Doctoral
Consortium, several workshops, and a Prolog programming contest.


   * Answer Set Programming and Other Computing Paradigms (ASPOCP), July 10
   * Logic Programming and Multi-Agent Systems (LPMAS), July 9
   * WG17, July 8-9
   * Logic-based methods in Programming Environments (WLPE), July 10
   * Colloquium on Implementation of Constraint and LOgic Programming
     Systems (CICLOPS), July 10

Workshops are perhaps the best places for the presentation of preliminary
work, undeveloped novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide and
audience with opportunities for intensive discussions and project

Submissions for all workshops are now open.


The 7th Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides research
students with the opportunity to present and discuss their research
directions, and to obtain feedback from both peers and world-renown experts
in the field. Accepted participants will receive partial financial support
to attend the event and the main conference.

Submission deadline for the consortium is April 24th, 2011.


   * Georg Gottlob, University of Oxford: Ontological Reasoning and
     Query-Answering with Logic Programming
   * Adam Lally, IBM Research: Natural Language Processing With
     Prolog in the IBM Watson System
   * Guenter Kniesel, University of Bonn: LP for Software Engineering
     and Software Engineering for LP (provisional title)


   * Michael A Covington, University of Georgia: Developing Prolog Coding
   * Francesca Toni, Imperial College London: Argumentation and Logic


The Association for Logic Programming has funds to assist financially
disadvantaged participants and, specially, students in order to be able to
attend the conference. For information, please contact the organizers of
the Doctoral Consortium and the General Chairs.


Blocks of rooms are reserved in Hilton Lexington/Downtown and Hyatt Regency
Lexington Hotel. The conference rate is guaranteed if a room is reserved by
June 9 in Hilton and June 5 in Hyatt. ICLP-2011 web site provides a link for
placing a reservation.


Lexington is a medium size, pleasant and quiet university town. It is
located in the heart of the so-called Bluegrass Region in Central Kentucky.
The city is surrounded by beautiful horse farms on green pastures dotted
with ponds and traditional architecture stables, ponds and small race
tracks, and bordered by white or black fences. The Horse Museum is as
beautifully located as it is interesting. Overall, the city has a nice feel
that mixes well old and new.

Traveling to Lexington is easy. The local airport has frequent direct
flights to Atlanta, Detroit and Chicago. It has also direct but less
frequent flights (one or two a day) to several other large US cities such as
Cincinnati, Dallas-Ft.  Worth, Houston and Newark. Thus, it can be reached
easily from any place in the world.


The conference is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming (ALP).
