        Special Issue of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming

    -- User-Oriented Logic Programming and Reasoning Paradigms -- 


Since the emergence of logic reasoning paradigms, such as answer set
programming, constraint logic programming, probabilistic logic
programming, abductive logic programming, inductive logic programming,
and argumentation, much theoretical work has been done, for example
concerning different semantics and their properties.
More recently, implementations and IDEs emerged which have proven useful
in various problem-solving applications.

However, user-friendliness is still an issue, both for users who are
logic programming experts and non-expert users who simply apply logic
paradigms in problem-solving applications; for example, experts benefit
from features like debugging and heuristic tuning, non-experts from
educational material, explanations, and intuitive visualisations - all
of which are ongoing topics of research.

The goal of this special issue is to discuss different aspects involved
in making logic reasoning paradigms more user-friendly:

1. Describe cutting-edge developments (e.g., novel IDEs, debugging
techniques, visualisations, or methods for heuristic tuning) of both
practical and/or theoretical nature;

2. Provide well-thought assessments of the state of the art (e.g., in
the form of well-organised surveys or personal perspectives);

3. Describe new research directions, offering clear motivations, new
perspectives, and solid foundations for other researchers to build upon
(e.g. best practice or logic programming education)
