This year, WLPE will be coordinated with CICLOPS. In particular, there will be two special events organised: (a) SWI-25, a celebration and retrospective of the open source SWI-Prolog engine on the occasion of its 25th birthday, and (b) OpenPL, an event on (1) coordinating libraries and add-on packages, and (2) the creation of a user-contributing repository of Prolog cod.
The goal of the 22nd Workshop on Logic-based methods in
Environments (WLPE 2012) is to be a informal venue for presentation
and discussion of research on logic-based methods and tools which
support program development and analysis. In this way, the workshop
tries to bridge the gaps between different communities interested
and active in logic-based tools for programming.
In addition to papers describing more conceptual and theoretical work, we explicitly also welcome papers describing the implementation of, and experience with, such tools.
The 22nd Workshop on Logic-based methods in Programming Environments continues the series of successful workshops held in Ohio, USA (1989), Eilat, Israel (1990), Paris, France (1991), Washington D.C., USA (1992), Vancouver, Canada (1993), Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy (1994), Portland, USA (1995), Leuven, Belgium and Port Jefferson, USA (1997), Las Cruces, USA (1999), Paphos, Cyprus (2001), Copenhagen, Denmark (2002), Mumbai, India (2003), Saint Malo, France (2004), Sitges (Barcelona), Spain (2005), Seattle, USA (2006), Porto, Portugal (2007), Udine, Italy (2008), Pasadena, USA (2009), Edinburgh, UK (2010), and Odense, Denmark (2011).
We hope to attain the same friendly atmosphere as in past
which enabled fruitful exchanges leading to joint research and
Topics of interest cover environmental tools for logic
programming, logic-based environmental tools for programming in general
and frameworks and resources for sharing in the logic programming
describing applications in these areas are especially welcome.
Contributions are welcome on all aspects of logic-based methods,
including, but not limited to:
Authors who are interested in taking part in the workshop, but are unsure if their work falls within its scope, are warmly invited to contact the organizers and obtain suitable advice.
We encourage the submission of original research in the area as well as relevant results that have been submitted, rejected, or accepted elsewhere as long as they are relevant for the WLPE community.
All papers must be written in English and should not exceed 15 pages. We welcome also shorter submissions, e.g., extended abstracts and short papers, of at least 3 pages.
Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission page:
An informal proceedings will be distributed electronically at
the workshop. After the workshop, the proceedings will be publicly
available on-line in the Computing Research Repository (CoRR).
Invited talk will be given by
Manuel Carro. Technical University of Madrid (UPM) and IMDEA Software Institute
