13-16 June 1995, Tokyo, Japan ICLP, which is sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming, is one of two major annual international conferences reporting recent research results in logic programming. Logic programming originates from the discovery that a subset of predicate logic could be given a procedural interpretation which was first embodied in the programming language, Prolog. The unique features of logic programming make it appealing for numerous applications in artificial intelligence, computer-aided design and verification, databases, and operations research, and for exploring parallel and concurrent computing. The last two decades have witnessed substantial developments in this field from its foundation to implementation, applications, and the exploration of new language designs.Topics covered : Theoretical Foundations. Higher-Order Logics. Non-Monotonic Reasoning. Programming Methodology. Programming Environments. Extensions to Logic Programming. Constraint Satisfaction. Meta-Programming. Language Design and Constructs. Implementation of Logic Programming Languages. Compilation Techniques. Architectures. Parallelism. Reasoning about Programs. Deductive Databases. Applications.Logic Programming series, Research Reports and Notes
