30th Workshop on (Constraint) Logic Programming (WLP 2016)

part of the Leipzig Week of Declarative Programming (L-DEC) 2016

September 12 - 13, 2016, at Faculty IMN at HTWK Leipzig, Germany.

Registration, Location, Travel

Talk Schedule and Slides


The Workshops on (Constraint) Logic Programming are the annual meeting of the German Society of Logic Programming Gesellschaft für Logische Programmierung e.V. (GLP) and brings together researchers interested in logic programming, constraint programming, answer set programming, and related areas like databases and artificial intelligence (not only from Germany).

The workshops provide a forum for exchanging ideas on declarative logic programming, nonmonotonic reasoning and knowledge representation, and facilitate interactions between research in theoretical foundations and in the design and implementation of logic-based programming systems.

The technical program of the workshop will include invited talks, presentations of refereed papers, and system demonstrations.

Contributions are welcome on all theoretical, experimental, and application aspects of logic programming (LP) and constraint programming (CP), including, but not limited to the following areas (the order does not reflect any priorities):

Logic Programming and Extensions

  • foundations of CP and LP
  • constraint solving and optimisation
  • functional logic programming, objects
  • dynamics, updates, states, transactions
  • interaction of CP and LP with other formalisms like agents, XML, JAVA
  • parallelism and concurrency
  • complexity and expressive power
  • program analysis, program transformation, program verification, meta programming

Knowledge Representation and Nonmonotonic Reasoning

  • deductive databases, data mining
  • rule-based systems
  • abductive and inductive logic programming
  • answer-set programming
  • semantics and proof-theoretical investigations

Application of Logic Programming

  • logic programming in production, management, environment, education, medicine, internet, etc.
  • CP/LP for Semantic Web applications and reasoning on the Semantic Web
  • data modelling for the Web, semistructured data, and Web query languages

Implementation of Systems

  • system descriptions, comparisons, evaluations
  • benchmarks
  • implementation techniques
  • software techniques and programming support (e.g., types, modularity, design patterns, debugging, testing, systematic program development).

Program Committee

Submission Details

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:

  • extended abstract (no longer than 15 pages including figures and references) or
  • system description (no longer than 6 pages)

via the EasyChair submission website for WLP 2016.

Submissions must be in LaTeX format using EPTCS style

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).

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.


Electronic versions of accepted papers will be made available before the workshop. The formal proceedings will be published in EPTCS, jointly with WFLP 2016. Regular research submissions and system descriptions can be directly accepted for publication in the formal proceedings, or initially accepted only for presentation at the workshop and invited to be revised for another round of reviewing before the formal proceedings are finalized. Accepted work-in-progress reports will also be invited to be revised and/or extended, targeting the formal proceedings as well.
