The 36th International Conference on Logic Programming

Call for papers - Women in Logic Programming Track


This track 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 track is an opportunity to celebrate women’s work in the community. We hope this will be particularly attractive to early-career women. The track 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. Especially welcome are the contributions reporting 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 Details

The submissions to this track 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 track. The accepted short papers will be published as Technical Communications, along with the selected ICLP-TC papers.

The types of submission are exactly the same as required by the main track, the only extra requisite being the fact that the papers for this track should include at least a woman in the list of authors.

All accepted papers, either regular or short, will be presented during the track 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.
