Software plays a crucial role in modern society. While the
continuous advent of faster, smaller and more powerful computing
devices makes the development of new and interesting applications
feasible, it puts even more demands on the software developer.

Having logic as the underlying formalism means that logic-based
analysis techniques are often successfully used for program
verification and optimization. Emerging programming paradigms and
growing complexity of the properties to be verified pose new
challenges for the community, while emerging reasoning techniques
can be exploited. Moreover, extending the practical applicability
of the existing approaches is an important task.

The workshop aims at providing an informal meeting for researchers
working on logic-based tools for development and analysis of
programs. As in recent years the workshop topics include not only
environmental tools for logic programming but increasingly also
logic-based environmental tools for programming in general and
frameworks and resources for sharing in the logic programming

We hope to attain the same friendly atmosphere as in past
workshops, which enabled fruitful exchanges leading to joint
research and subsequent publications.

Previous workshops on logic programming environments held in Ohio,
USA (1989), Eilat, Israel (1990), Paris, France (1991), Washington,
USA (1992), Vancouver, Canada (1993), Santa Margherita Ligure,
Italy (1994), Portland, USA (1995), Leuven, Belgium and Port
Jefferson, USA (1997), Las Cruces, USA (1999), Paphos, Cyprus
(2001), Copenhagen, Denmark (2002), Mumbai, India (2003), Saint
Malo, France (2004), Sitges, Spain (2005), Seattle, Washington USA
(2006), Porto, Portugal (2007), Udine, Italy (2008), Pasadena, USA
(2009), Edinburgh, UK (2010), and Odense, Denmark (2011).
