The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming

Call for papers - Special Session: Women in Logic Programming


This special session aims to increase the visibility and impact of women in LP, fostering awareness of one another’s work. To have good role models is very important for female students and this session is an opportunity to celebrate women’s work in the community. We hope this will be particularly attractive to early-career women. The session will include one or two invited talks and presentations by women in logic programming.

Contributions are solicited in all areas of logic programming and related areas, with a special focus on applications that are beneficial to society in the large, and to the role of women in society in particular.

Any (female) student willing to participate to ICLP can submit their application on the site: https://women.acm.org/scholarships/

Submission Process

The submissions to this special session must be made via the EasyChair conference system (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=iclp20200).

All submissions must be written in English and co-authored by at least one woman.

Two types of submissions are invited: Regular and short.

  • Regular papers must be in the condensed TPLP format (template here) and not exceed 14 pages including bibliography. Regular papers may be supplemented with appendices for proofs and details of datasets which do not count towards the page limit and which will not be made available as appendices to the published paper.
  • Short papers (7 pages in EPTCS format (http://info.eptcs.org/), including references) can describe original preliminary work or express a position on the special focus of the session. The accepted short papers will be published as Technical Communications, along with the selected ICLP-TC papers.

All TCs will be presented during the conference, preferably by women. Authors of accepted papers will, by default, be automatically included in the list of ALP members, who will receive quarterly updates from the Logic Programming Newsletter at no cost.
