                           *** IULP 2015 ***

      International Workshop on User-Oriented Logic Programming
                            August 31, 2015

                          Collocated with the
    31st International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2015)
                             Cork, Ireland
                      August 31 - September 4, 2015


Since the emergence of the field of logic programming more than 30 years
ago, a lot of theoretical work has been done, for example with respect to
different semantics and their properties. More recently, implementations
and IDEs emerged which have been used for various problem-solving
However, user-friendliness is still an issue for both experts and
non-experts in logic programming; for example experts benefit from
features like debugging and heurist tuning, non-experts from educational
material and intuitive visualisations - all of which are ongoing topics
of research.

The International Workshop of User-Oriented Logic Programming (IULP)
focuses on discussing different aspects involved in making logic pro-
gramming more user-friendly/oriented, where the "user" could be either a
logic programming expert, or a non-expert who simply uses logic pro-
gramming tools in some application. IULP aims to bring together re-
searchers from different sub-areas of logic programming, such as answer
set programming, constraint logic programming, probabilistic logic
programming, abductive logic programming, inductive logic programming,
argumentation etc., as user-friendliness is an important topic in all of
these sub-areas.

IULP aims to provide an international forum for researchers in the AI,
KR, and applied sciences community to discuss and present advances in
theories, formalisms, and applications to deliver the mature and
well-defined methods of logic programming to a wider audience.

We solicit the submission of papers broadly centred on issues and
research related to user-friendliness in logic programming and related
We welcome papers of either theoretical or practical nature including
work in progress.

* Papers due: EXTEDNDED Wed, 17th June 2015

We encourage the submission of original research in the area as well as
relevant results that have been submitted or accepted elsewhere provided
that the initial publication is mentioned in a footnote on the first

Note that authorship is not anonymous and that at least one author of
each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop to present the

There are no formal proceedings for IULP.
The accepted papers will be published as a technical report and will be
made available in the CoRR Computing Research Repository.

The copyright of the papers lies with the authors and, as far as IULP is
concerned, authors are free to submit their work to other conferences and
