                     CALL FOR PAPERS
Seventeenth International Conference on Logic Programming

                  Paphos, Cyprus
                  November 26 - December 1, 2001


ICLP'01, the seventeenth International Conference on Logic
Programming will be be held this year in conjuction with CP-2001, 
the 7th International  Conference on Principle and Practice of 
Constraint Programming http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/cp2001. 

Joint events, as well as the possibility of reduced joint 
registration are planned. 


Since the first ICLP, held in Marseilles in 1982, ICLP has been
the premier international conference for presenting research
into logic programming.  Original papers are sought in all areas
of logic programming including (but not restricted to):

     Theory                        Implementation

         Semantic Foundations          Compilation
         Formalisms                    Memory Management
         Non-monotonic Reasoning       Virtual Machines
         Knowledge Representation      Parallelism

    Language Issues                    Environments

         Constraints                   Program Analysis
         Concurrency                   Program Transformation
         Objects                       Validation and Verification
         Coordination                  Debugging 
         Higher Order                  Applications
         Modes                         Deductive Databases
         Programming Techniques        Software Engineering
                                       Natural Language
                                       Web tools
                                       Internet Agents
                                       Artificial Intelligence

Specific attention will be given to work providing novel
integrations over these different areas, and to new applications 
of logic programming in general.

The technical program will include several invited talks and
advanced tutorials in addition to the presentations of the
accepted papers. The proceedings of the conference will be 
published by Springer Verlag. The conference is sponsored by 
the Association for Logic Programming. Members of the Association 
for Logic Programming will receive a registration discount and 
the ALP has some funds to assist financially disadvantaged participants.


Papers must describe original, previously unpublished research,
be written and presented in English, not exceed 15 pages (A4 or
letter format, up to 5,000 words), and not be simultaneously
submitted for publication elsewhere.

Papers should clearly express the contribution of the paper, both
in general and in technical terms. It is essential to identify what
was accomplished, describe its significance, and explain how the
paper compares with and advances previous work. Authors should make
every effort to make the technical content understandable to a
broad audience. 

The primary means of submission will be electronic, in Postscript
format. Details on the procedure and alternatives can be found at
the ICLP'01 web site. If electronic submission is not possible,
5 hard copies should be sent to the program chair at the postal
address given below. Regardless of the submission method, a letter
or e-mail message accompanying the paper must contain a plain text
abstract of about 200 words and the names, e-mail addresses if
possible, and postal addresses of all authors. 

Submission Agenda:

   Submission of abstracts:    May 4,  2001
   Submission of papers:       May 11, 2001
   Notification of acceptance: July 6, 2001
