CICLOPS is a series of colloquia on the implementation of constraint logic programming. Logic and Constraint programming is an important declarative programming paradigm. The features offered by this paradigm such as rule-basedness, pattern matching, automated backtracking, recursion, tabling, and constraint solving have been proved convenient for many programming tasks. Recent improvements in implementation technologies combined with advances in hardware and systems software have made logic and constraint programming a viable choice for many real-world problems.
CICLOPS'10 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 (Italy, 2008), and Pasadena (U.S.A, 2009).
WLPE is a series of workshops on practical logic-based software development methods and tools. Software plays a crucial role in modern society. While software keeps on growing in size and complexity, it is more than ever required to be delivered on time, free of error and meeting the most stringent efficiency requirements. Thus more demands are placed on the software developer, and consequently, the need for methods and tools that support the programmer in every aspect of the software development process is widely recognized. Logic plays a fundamental role in analysis, verification and optimization in all programming languages, not only in those based directly on logic. The use of logic-based techniques in software development is a very active area in computing; emerging programming paradigms and growing complexity of the properties to be verified pose new challenges for the community, while emerging reasoning techniques can be exploited.
WLPE'10 continues the series of successful international workshops on logic programming environments 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 (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) and Udine, Italy (2008).

CICLOPS-WLPE 2010 aims at bringing together, in an informal setting, people involved in research in the design and implementation of logic and constraint programming languages and systems and on logic-based methods and tools which support program development and analysis. In addition to papers describing more conceptual and theoretical work, papers describing the implementation of, and experience with, such tools will be welcome.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Abstract machines and compilation techniques * Compile-time analysis and its application to code generation * Memory management, indexing, and garbage collection issues * Profiling tools and performance evaluation * Implementation of concurrent, parallel, and distributed systems * Extensions such as tabling, constraints, probabilistic reasoning, and learning * New features such as ASP and coinduction * Object-oriented and module systems * Integration with other systems such as CP, SAT, LP/MLP, and Database systems * Experiences from using systems in real-life applications * Static and dynamic analysis * Debugging and testing * Program verification and validation, * Code generation from specifications, * Termination analysis, * Constraints * Rewriting * Profiling and performance analysis, * Type and mode analysis, * Module systems, * Optimization tools, * Program understanding, * Refactoring * Logical meta-languages
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 organizers and will be given suitable advice.
