CLPSE 2009

4th International Workshop on

(Constraint) Logic Programming and Software Engineering

July, 2009

Satellite event of ICLP 2009, Pasadena, California, USA

Topics of interest

This workshop aims at discussing and exchanging experience in software engineering topics related to developing, documenting, testing, porting, evaluating, and maintaining large-scale (constraint) logic programming applications. Experience backed up by industrial applications 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:

Authors who are interested in taking part in the workshop, but are unsure if their work falls within its scope, are invited to contact the workshop coordinators.

Workshop Goals

Our intent is to bring together, in an informal setting, people involved both in research and in industrial work. We hope that the workshop will provide a meeting point for people working on software engineering topics in the context of large-scale (constraint) logic programming applications.


This workshop continues a tradition of successful international workshops on (Constraint) Logic Programming and Software Engineering, previously held in London (2000), Paphos (2001), and Copenhagen (2002).

Submission Information

Authors are invited to submit regular papers, position papers, or short papers written in English and formatted using the LNCS LaTeX style. Regular papers should not exceed 15 pages. Position papers and short papers should not exceed 5 pages.

Regular papers should describe original unpublished research or industrial work relevant to the topics of the workshop. Position papers should present new ideas, vision statements, new research directions, or advocate out-of-the-box approaches to know problems. Short papers can be used to describe ongoing work, research project overviews, talk abstracts, or application notes.

Paper submission is performed through EasyChair.

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register and attend the workshop to present the paper. Regular papers and position papers will be presented and discussed in time slots of 20+10 minutes. Short papers will be presented and discussed in time slots of 10+5 minutes.

Important Dates

Submission deadline:April 19
Notification of authors:May 18
Camera-ready copy due:June 1
