CILC 2017
32nd Italian Conference on Computational Logic
26-28 September 2017, Naples, Italy

CILC (Italian Conference on Computational Logic) is the annual conference organized by GULP (Group of researchers and Users of Logic Programming, Its 32nd edition will be held in Naples (Italy) on September 26-28, 2017.
Since the first event of the series, which took place in Genoa in 1986, the annual GULP conference represents the main opportunity for users, researchers and developers working in the field of computational logic to meet and exchange ideas. Over the years the conference broadened its horizons from the specific field of logic programming to include declarative programming and applications in neighboring areas such as artificial intelligence and deductive databases.
CILC 2017 is co-located with the 18th Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science ICTCS 2017 ( with which it will share part of the program. The two events will feature plenary events.

The conference will feature presentations of refereed contributions, including the demonstration of software prototypes, concerning all aspects of computational logic. The conference invites two types of submissions: full papers, possibly already submitted to other conferences or journals, and short papers, which are particularly suitable for presenting work in progress, software prototypes, extended abstracts of doctoral theses, or general overviews of research projects.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Logic Programming, Constraint Programming and other paradigms of declarative programming
  • Extensions and integrations of declarative programming paradigms
  • Analysis, transformation, validation, and verification of programs
  • Instruments and environments for program development
  • Implementations and benchmarking
  • Model Checking
  • Temporal logics
  • Automated Theorem Proving
  • Non-Monotonic Reasoning
  • Answer Set Programming
  • Knowledge representation and extraction
  • Treatment of uncertain and incomplete knowledge
  • Approximate Reasoning
  • Abductive Logic Programming
  • Model-based Reasoning
  • Inductive Logic Programming
  • Deductive Databases
  • Data Mining and Data Integration
  • Multi-agent systems
  • Logics for strategic reasoning
  • Semantic Web
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Computational logic for concurrency, coordination, mobility and objects
  • Planning and scheduling
  • Probabilistic Logic Programming
  • Computational Logic and formal methods in Artificial Intelligence
  • Applications of Computational Logic
  • Pedagogy of Computational Logic

Final version: 4 September 2017
Conference: 26-29 26-28  September 2017
Submission instructions
Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in PDF via the EasyChair system at the link:
Articles must not exceed 15 pages for full papers and 5 pages for short papers, respectively. Manuscripts should be formatted using the Springer LNCS style. To ease the reviewing process, the authors of regular papers may add an appendix (although reviewers are not required to consider it in their evaluation). All contributions must be written in English.
In particular, we invite submissions of system or prototype software descriptions which use techniques or tools of computational logic, or which themselves aid the development of applications based on computational logic. Systems of both research and industrial character are welcome. Submissions must include a brief description, prepared according to the guidelines given for short papers, and a specification of the required hardware and software equipment.
For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required to attend the conference and present the paper. The event is organized by GULP. Therefore, Italian attendants are required to be members of GULP (it is possible to join GULP at the conference).

All accepted original contributions (both full and short) will be published on
Non-original communications will be given visibility on the conference web site including a link to the original publication if already published.
As in previous years, we plan to publish a selection of the best papers in a special issue of an international journal (to be determined). This is open to full and short papers that have not been published in a journal.
