Topics of interest
This workshop aims at discussing and exchanging experience on the
design, implementation, and optimization of logic, constraint (logic)
programming systems, and other systems based on logic as a means to
express computations. Experience backed up by real implementations and
their evaluation will be given preference, as well as descriptions of
work in progress in that direction.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Sequential implementation schemes (abstract
machines, translation to other languages, etc.).
* Implementation of concurrent and distributed logic
and constraint programming systems.
* Implementation of type inference and type checking
systems for logic and constraint programming languages.
* Compile-time analysis and its application to code
* Balance between compile-time effort and run-time
machinery, dynamic compilation.
* Interaction between high-level optimizations /
transformations / specialization and low-level issues.
* Memory management and garbage collection issues.
* Indexing techniques and optimizations for large
* Optimizations for program generated logic and
* Implementation of logic engines in functional and
object oriented languages.
* Embedding of logic and constraint programming
engines in multi-paradigm systems.
* Implementation techniques for alternative logic
engines and inference mechanisms (ASP, SAT, QSAT, DL etc.).
* Implementation of theorem provers, proof
assistants and logic based natural language processing systems.
* Implementation of object and agent-oriented
extensions to logic and constraint programming languages.
* Object and module systems.
* Design and implementation of declarative I/O
concepts for logic and constraint programming languages.
* Implementations and ports of logic and constraint
programming systems for mobile phones and netbooks.
* Documenting, debugging, testing, and profiling
tools for logic and constraint programming systems.
Our intent is to bring together, in an informal setting, people
involved in research on sequential and parallel implementation
technologies for logic and constraint programming languages and
systems, in order to promote the exchange of ideas and feedback on
recent developments. We hope that the workshop will provide a meeting
point for people working on implementation technology for different
aspects of logic and constraint-based languages and systems.
CICLOPS'09 continues a tradition of successful workshops on
Implementations of Logic Programming Systems, previously held with in
Budapest (1993) and Ithaca (1994), the Compulog Net workshops on
Parallelism and Implementation Technologies held in Madrid (1993 and
1994), Utrecht (1995) and Bonn (1996), the Workshop on Parallelism and
Implementation Technology for (Constraint) Logic Programming Languages
held in Port Jefferson (1997), Manchester (1998), Las Cruces (1999),
and London (2000), and more recently the Colloquium on Implementation
of Constraint and LOgic Programming Systems in Paphos (Cyprus, 2001),
Copenhagen (2002), Mumbai (2003), Saint Malo (France, 2004), Sitges
(Spain, 2005), Seattle (U.S.A., 2006), Porto (Portugal, 2007), Udine
Authors are invited to submit PDF
files of papers written in English and not exceeding 15 pages using LNCS LaTeX format.

distributed during the conference.
