International Conference on Logic Programming

Fourth Doctoral Consortium

Udine, Italy
December 9-13, 2008

The 2008 ICLP Doctoral Consortium (DC) is the fourth international
doctoral consortium to be offered as part of the International
Conference on Logic Programming. The DC will take place during ICLP
2008 in Udine, Italy. The Doctoral Consortium is designed for
doctoral students working in areas related to logic programming, as
well as Master's students interested in pursuing doctoral degrees in
the field of logic programming.

The Doctoral Consortium aims to provide students with an opportunity
to present and discuss their research directions and to obtain
feedback from peers as well as world-renowned experts in the field.
The Doctoral Consortium will also offer invited speakers and panel


The Doctoral Consortium is held the during the regular activities of
the ICLP 2008 Conference. The aims of the Doctoral Consortium are:

* To provide doctoral students working in the field of logic and
constraint programming with a friendly and open forum to present
their research ideas, listen to ongoing work from peer students,
and receive constructive feedback

* To provide students with relevant information about important
issues for doctoral candidates and future academics

* To develop a supportive community of scholars and a spirit of
collaborative research.

* To support a new generation of researchers with information and
advice on academic, research, industrial, and non-traditional
career paths.

The Consortium is designed for students currently enrolled in a Ph.D.
program, though we are also open to exceptions (e.g., students
currently in a Masters program and interested in doctoral studies).
Students at any stage in their doctoral studies are encouraged to
apply. Applicants are expected to be conducting
research in the field of Logic Programming; topics of interest include
(but are not limited to):

* Theoretical Foundations of Logic and Constraint Logic Programming
* Sequential and Parallel Implementation Technology
* Static and Dynamic Analysis, Abstract Interpretation, Compilation
Technology, Verification
* Logic-based Paradigms (e.g., Answer Set Programming, Concurrent
Logic Programming, Inductive Logic Programming)
* Innovative Applications of Logic Programming

The Consortium allows participants to interact with established
researchers and with other students, through presentations, question-
answer sessions, panel discussions, and invited presentations. The
Doctoral Consortium will provide the possibility to reflect - through
short activities, information sessions, and discussions - on the
process and lessons of research and life in academia. Each participant
will give a short, critiqued, research presentation.

The Doctoral Consortium will be held on a date to be determined, in
parallel with the regular activities of the ICLP 2008 conference; the
ICLP conference will run from December 9th to December 9th, 2008.
Doctoral Consortium participants will be offered the opportunity to
have their abstracts published in the ICLP 2008 conference

Several renowned faculty members and researchers in the field of Logic
Programming will join in evaluating the submission packets and will
participate in the Doctoral Consortium, providing feedback to the
presenters. The list of the discussants will be published at a later
