WFLP 2014

23rd International Workshop on Functional and (Constraint) Logic Programming

colocated with 28th Workshop on (Constraint) Logic Programming (WLP 2014)

September 15 - 17, at Leucorea conference center in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany.


The international workshops on functional and logic programming aim at bringing together researchers interested in functional programming, logic programming, as well as their integration. The workshops on (constraint) logic programming serve as the scientific forum of the annual meeting of the Society of Logic Programming (GLP e.V.) and bring together researchers interested in logic programming, constraint programming, and related areas like databases, artificial intelligence, and operations research.

In this year both workshops will be jointly organized and co-located, in order to promote the cross-fertilizing exchange of ideas and experiences among researchers and students from the different communities interested in the foundations, applications, and combinations of high-level, declarative programming languages and related areas. The technical program of the workshop will include invited talks, presentations of refereed papers and demo presentations.

The joint workshop will consist of two tracks (WFLP and WLP). Sessions of these two tracks will be interleaved.

Submission Guidelines

Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Work that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).

Papers can be submitted as technical papers or system descriptions. Technical papers should consist of up to 15 pages, system descriptions should be no longer than 6 pages.

Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They should include a clear identification of what has been accomplished and why it is significant.

Submissions should indicate to which track (WFLP, WLP) the paper is submitted.

Authors should use the llncs.cls class file (and remember to switch on page numbers).

Best Newcomer Award (to be confirmed)

Proceedings (to be confirmed)

All accepted papers will be published as a technical report and made available electronically at the workshop. As for previous events, it is planned to publish selected papers as post-conference proceedings.
