		First International Conference on Computational Logic
			 Imperial College, London, UK
			 24th to 28th July, 2000
			 http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/cl2000/
	

			 FIRST CALL FOR WORKSHOP PAPERS
	
	CL2000 is the first in a major new series of annual international
	conferences bringing together the various communities of researchers
	who have a common interest in Computational Logic.
	
	CL2000 will host seven workshops on different topics related to
	computational logic. Workshops will take place during the conference:
	They will not be 'post-conference' events, but a key activity within
	the conference.

* A special note to linguists: The chair of one of the streams is Veronica Dahl
who is a specialist in computational linguistics. The stream is called

Logic Programming Implementations and Applications and the more specific link is

http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/cl2000/

	
	People interested in submitting a paper should contact directly the
	specific workshop coordinator.

		 ** LONGER DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKSHOPS **
		 *****************************************
	
	[1] Workshop on Logic Programming and Software Engineering 
	 Organizer: Gopal Gupta guptacs.nmsu.edu
	
	 The workshop I is concerned with how (constraint) logic
	 programming can aid in engineering of large software systems. For
	 example, how (C)LP can help in specification and modeling of s/w
	 systems including real-time systems, verification of software
	 systems, automatic derivation of efficient implementations,
	
	 The workshop papers are solicited on the following topics:
	
	 * (C)LP for modeling and specification of large software systems
	 incl. real-time systems
	
	 * (C)LP for verification and model checking of s/w systems and
	 real-time systems.
	
	 * (C)LP for deriving efficient implementations from
	 specifications.
	
	 * (C)LP for Process Discover in S/W Engineering.
	
	 * Any other application of (C)LP for S/W Engineering.
	
	
	[2] Workshop on Verification and Computational Logic
	 http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/~mal/vcl2000.html
	 Contact person: Michael Leuschel, malecs.soton.ac.uk 
	
	 The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working
	 on the interplay between verification techniques (e.g., model
	 checking, reduction, and abstraction) and logic programming
	 techniques (e.g., constraints, abstract interpretation, program
	 transformation).

	[3] First Workshop on Memory Management in Logic Programming
	 Implementations.

	 Memory management (as a topic for publication and research) has
	 been a bit neglected by the LP community, in contrast to the
	 tradition in functional programming and more recently in the Java
	 community. Still, memory management is crucial in LP
	 implementations and it is high time that hearsay and folklore is
	 turned into paper. Implementors, researchers and users will
	 benefit.
	
	 We aim to bring together implementors of LP systems, with
	 practical or theoretical experience in memory management of such
	 systems, as well as interested LP users who would like to
	 understand better issues involved in memory management. The
	 intended focus is on memory management of run time data structures
	 of sequential implementations of LP, and on topics like memory
	 profiling, data representation, garbage collection, memory layout,
	 alternative allocation schemas, but not restricted to these.
	
	
	[4] Workshop on Rule-Based Constraint Reasoning and Programming
	 supported by Compulog and ERCIM. 
	 http://www.pst.informatik.uni-muenchen.de/~fruehwir/cl2000r.html
	 Contact person: Thom Fruehwirth, fruehwirinformatik.uni-muenchen.de 
	
	 Rule-based formalisms are ubiquitous in computer science, and even
	 more so in constraint reasoning and programming. In constraint
	 reasoning, algorithms are often specified using inference rules,
	 rewrite rules, sequents or logical axioms. Advanced programming
	 languages like CHR, CLAIRE and ELAN allow the implementation both
	 constraint solvers and programs using constraints in a rule-based
	 formalism.
	
	 The workshop invites papers describing ongoing work in using
	 rule-based formalisms in constraint reasoning and programming. In
	 particular, on specification of algorithms for solving constraints
	 by rules and on implementations of constraint solvers and programs
	 solving problems in a novel way using rule-based programming
	 languages that go beyond constraint logic programming, as well as
	 on analysis of rule-based programs and other issues related to
	 rule-based language design and implementation.
	
	 To submit, send an email to fruehwirinformatik.uni-muenchen.de
	 containing three lines with title, authors and WWW link to
	 compressed postscript file. Accepted papers will be published in
	 hard-copy proceedings available at the workshop.

	[5] Workshop on Parallelism and Implementation Technology for
	 (Constraint) Logic Programming Languages 
	 http://www.cos.ufrj.br/~wpit00
	 Contact Person: Ines de Castro Dutra, inescos.ufrj.br 
	
	 Papers from both academia and industry are invited. Preference
	 will be given to the analysis and description of implemented
	 systems (or currently under implementation) and their associated
	 techniques, problems found in their development or design, and
	 steps taken towards the solution of these problems.
	
	 TOPICS include, but are not limited to:
	
	 - standard and non-standard sequential implementation schemes
	 (e.g., generalization/modification of WAM, translation to C);
	 - implementation of parallel logic programming systems;
	 - balance between compile-time effort and run-time machinery;
	 - techniques for the implementation of different declarative
	 programming paradigms based on, or extending, logic programming
	 (e.g., constraint logic programming, concurrent constraint
	 languages, equational-logic languages);
	 - performance evaluation of sequential and parallel logic
	 programming systems, both through benchmarking and using real 
	 world applications;
	 - other implementation-related issues, such as memory management,
	 register allocation, use of global optimizations, etc.

	 The Internet and Robotics make research on multi-agent systems
	 very important. However, programming in these domains becomes very
	 complicated and reasoning about behavior of these systems becomes
	 extremely difficult. Therefore, it is important to be able to
	 formalize multi-agent systems and to reason about agent's behavior
	 automatically. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss
	 techniques, based on computational logic, for reasoning about
	 multi-agent systems in a formal way. This is clearly a major
	 challenge for computational logic, to deal with real world issues
	 and applications.
	
	 deadline for submission: April 30th, 2000
	
	
	[7] UK Constraint Network (Consnet) Annual Workshop. 
	 Organiser: Mark Wallace, mgwicparc.ic.ac.uk
	
	 Consnet is a network of researchers aiming to drive forward the
	 technology and skills available in the UK to tackle computational
	 problems involving constraints.
	 
	 The aims of the workshop are to disseminate the results of recent
	 research in this area, to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas and
	 new multi-disciplinary research proposals, to publicise and learn
	 from existing successful applications and from problems which are
	 currently out of reach, to identify the vision of this research 
	 community for the long-term future development of constraints 
	 technology, and to plan a corresponding long-term strategy to achieve 
	 the necessary scientific advance and take-up.
