In addition to the main track, ICLP 2024 will host:

  • Applications Track: invites submissions on emerging and deployed
    applications of LP, describing aspects of the development,
    deployment, and evaluation of logic programming systems to solve
    real-world problems, including interesting case studies, benchmarks,
    and lessons learned.

  • Recently Published Research Track: provides a forum to discuss
    important recent results related to logic programming that have
    appeared (from January 2022 onward) in selective journals and
    conferences, but have not been presented at ICLP.

  • System Demonstrations. We invite submissions to showcase logic
    programming systems in a live setting. This track is not designed
    for sales pitches. Rather demonstrations are a way for the community
    to see the relevance, potential, and innovation of the system and to
    allow time for discussion with its creator(s).

  • Birds of a Feather (BoF) Sessions. We invite proposals for break-out
    sessions during ICLP to provide informal discussions for colleagues
    with similar interests in inclusive environments. BoFs are not
    intended to be presentations: proposers of BoF sessions should serve
    as discussion leaders only.


  • 2024 Autumn School in Computational Logic: October 11-12
  • Workshops: October 12-13, 2024
  • Doctoral Consortium and Mentoring Sessions: October 12-13, 2024
    provides students and early career researchers with the opportunity
    to present and discuss their research directions, obtain feedback
    from both peers and experts, and participate in mentoring sessions
    on how to prepare for and succeed in a research career. Leaders in
    logic programming research from academia and industry give invited
    talks on their research areas. The best paper from the DC will be
    given the opportunity to make a presentation in the main ICLP
  • Logic Programming in Industry: October 14, 2024

All submissions must be written in English. Papers accepted at ICLP may
appear either in

All accepted papers will be presented during the conference. 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. The forms of submission are as

  • Main and Application Tracks All papers must describe original,
    previously unpublished research, and must not simultaneously be
    submitted for publication elsewhere. (These restrictions do not
    apply to previously accepted workshop papers with a limited audience
    and/or without archival proceedings.)

    Main and Application track submissions may have one of two forms.

    • Regular papers are at most 14 pages in TPLP format, including
      references. Accepted regular papers will be published either in
      a special issue of TPLP or in the Technical Communication
      Proceedings of ICLP ’24. In the latter case, papers must be
      reformatted into EPTCS format and must not exceed 14 pages.
      Authors of Regular papers accepted as Technical Communications
      can convert their submissions into extended abstracts (2 or 3
      pages in EPTCS format) which should allow authors to submit a
      long version elsewhere.

    • Short papers (7 pages in EPTCS format, including references).
      The accepted short papers will be published in the Technical
      Communication Proceedings.

  • Recently Published Research Track We invite extended abstracts
    describing previously published research (from January 2022 onwards)
    in selective journals and conferences, that has not been previously
    presented at ICLP. The extended abstract should be 2-3 pages in
    EPTCS format and accompanied by a title page with (i) details on
    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.

  • System Demonstrations We invite extended abstracts (2 or 3 pages in
    EPTCS format) describing systems to be demonstrated in a session of
    ICLP. System demonstrations should provide highlights of the novel
    features of the system, along with information about how to access
    it. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Technical
    Communication Proceedings.

  • Birds of a Feather (BoF) Proposals Finally we invite extended
    abstracts (2-3 pages in EPTCS format) that propose breakout sessions
    that may take place during the ICLP 24 conference. BOF proposals
    should motivate the relevance of the topic to logic programming,
    describe the expected audience, identify discussion leaders and
    their expertise, and provide a brief description of the activities
    during the session. BoF proposals should also discribe the planned
    practices to promote inclusion and to foster attendee involvement.
    Accepted abstracts will be published in the Technical Communication

Submissions will be made via EasyChair. The submission Web page for

ICLP’24 will be held on the campus of the University of Texas at Dallas
in October 2024. Dallas, part of the Dallas/Fort-Worth metroplex, is a
dynamic city with great tourist attractions. Renowned for its unique
blend of modernity and rich cultural heritage, Dallas offers an array of
attractions for visitors: from diverse range of museums, such as the
Dallas Museum of Art and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, to the
Fort Worth Stockyards that feature the Cattle Drive (twice daily).
Dallas boasts a thriving culinary scene, from sizzling steakhouses to
trendy food trucks, to authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. With a wealth of
entertainment options, including shopping districts, live music venues,
and sports events, a visit to Dallas is a memorable experience.
