The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming

Welcome to ICLP 2020 - UNICAL, Rende (CS), 18-24 September 2020


The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2020) will take place from the 18th of September 2020 in Rende (CS), Italy, with the main program starting immediately after the sister conference KR 2020. It will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Calabria.

Since the first conference held in Marseille in 1982, ICLP has been the premier international event for presenting research in logic programming.

Conference Scope: Contributions are solicited in all areas of logic programming and related areas, including but not restricted to: Foundations, Declarative Programming, Related Paradigms, Implementations, and Applications.

We are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 situation from local authorities and the World Health Organization. The conference general chairs together with the program chairs and the ALP Executive, have decided to hold ICLP2020 as a fully virtual conference on the original dates. More details will be announced soon.

DEADLINES EXTENDED: Due to the difficult period we are all experiencing and the profound impact that this has been having on our lives and daily work we have decided to extend the submission deadline for ICLP 2020. New schedule of important dates is highlighted below.
