Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Modules, Meta-programming, Logic-based domain-specific languages, Programming techniques.
Programming support
Program analysis, Transformation, Validation, Verification, Debugging, Profiling, Testing, Execution visualization.
Compilation, Virtual machines, Memory management, Parallel/distributed execution, Constraint handling rules, Tabling, Foreign interfaces, User interfaces.
Language Issues
Concurrency, Objects, Coordination, Mobility, Higher Order, Types, Modes, Assertions, Programming Techniques.
Related Paradigms and Synergies
Inductive and coinductive logic programming, Constraint logic programming, Answer set programming, Interaction with SAT, SMT and CSP solvers, Theorem proving, Argumentation, Probabilistic programming, Machine learning.
Databases, Big data, Data integration and federation, Software engineering, Natural language processing, Web and semantic web, Agents, Artificial intelligence, Computational life sciences, Cybersecurity, Robotics, Education.

Tracks and Special Sessions

Besides the main track, ICLP 2022 will host additional tracks:

Applications Track
This track invites submissions of papers on emerging and deployed applications of LP, describing all aspects of the development, deployment, and evaluation of logic programming systems to solve real-world problems, including interesting case studies and benchmarks, and discussing lessons learned.
Recently Published Research Track
This track provides a forum to discuss important results related to logic programming that appeared recently (from January 2020 onwards) in selective journals and conferences, but have not been previously presented at ICLP.

In addition, ICLP 2022 will house:

Doctoral Consortium and Mentoring Sessions
The Doctoral Consortium (DC) on Logic Programming provides students and early career researchers with the opportunity to present and discuss their research directions, obtain feedback from both peers and experts in the field, and participate in mentoring sessions on how to prepare and succeed for a research career. We will have leaders in logic programming research from academia and industry to give invited talks on their research areas. The best paper from the DC will be given the opportunity to make a presentation in a session of the main ICLP conference.
Tutorials and Co-located Workshops

Recently Published Research Track

Extended abstract (2 or 3 pages in EPTCS format) describing previously published research (from January 2020 onwards) in selective journals and conferences, but that have not been previously presented at ICLP. A title page should be appended to the submission with (i) details on the venue, where the original paper appeared, (ii) a link to the original paper, (iii) a paragraph describing why the authors believe this work warrants a presentation at ICLP. The extended abstracts will be published in the Technical Communication Proceedings.


Information about ICLP 2022 included workshops will be posted in this section.
