                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                              WFLP 2001
International Workshop on Functional and (Constraint) Logic Programming

                          comprising the

    10th International Workshop on Functional and Logic Programming
             16th Workshop on Logic Programming

                          Kiel, Germany
                      September 13-15, 2001


WFLP 2001 is the combination of two workshops of a successful series
of annual workshops on declarative programming. The international
workshops on functional and logic programming aimed at bringing
together researchers interested in functional programming, logic
programming, as well as their integration. Previous workshops
have been held in Benicassim (Spain), Grenoble (France), Bad Honnef
(Germany). The workshops on (constraint) logic programming are the
annual meeting of the Society of Logic Programming (GLP e.V.) and
bring together researchers interested in logic programming,
constraint programming, and related areas like databases and artificial
intelligence. Previous workshops have been held in Germany, Austria
and Switzerland.

In this year both workshops will be jointly organized in order to
promote the cross-fertilizing exchange of ideas and experiences
among researches and students from the different communities
interested in the foundations, applications, and combinations
of high-level, declarative programming languages and related areas.
The technical program of the workshop will include invited talks,
presentations of refereed papers and demo presentations.

The WWW page of the workshop is:



The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

*  Functional programming
*  Logic programming
*  Constraint programming
*  Deductive databases
*  Extensions of declarative languages, objects
*  Multi-paradigm declarative programming
*  Foundations, semantics, nonmonotonic reasoning, dynamics
*  Parallelism, concurrency
*  Program analysis, abstract interpretation
*  Program transformation, partial evaluation, meta-programming
*  Specification, verification, declarative debugging
*  Knowledge representation, machine learning
*  Implementation of declarative languages
*  Advanced programming environments and tools
*  Applications

The primary focus is on new and original research results but 
submissions describing innovative products, prototypes under development
or interesting experiments (e.g., benchmarks) are also encouraged.


Submission of papers:       May 15, 2001
Notification of acceptance: June 20, 2001
Camera-ready papers:        July 20, 2001
Workshop:                   September 13 - 15, 2001


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract (no longer than
10 pages including figures and references) or a system description
(no longer than 3 pages) in postscript format (11pt) via email to


before May 15, 2001. Submissions should include the title, authors'
names, affiliations, addresses, and e-mail. The proceedings with the
full versions of all accepted contributions (no longer than 15 pages
for regular contributions and 3 pages for system descriptions) will be
published as a Technical Report of the University of Kiel.

An award will be given to the best paper exclusively written by one
or several young researchers who have not yet obtained their PhD degrees.
Papers written in this category should be clearly marked "Student papers"
in the submission.


The workshop will be a 3-day event including presentations of
the accepted papers, system demos, and
