PLP 2024: the Eleventh Workshop on Probabilistic Logic Programming

Co-located with ICLP 2024

October 12-13, 2024 (exact date TBA)

About the Workshop

The workshop encompasses all aspects of combining logic, algorithms, programming, and probability.

Probabilistic logic programming (PLP) approaches have received much attention in this century. They address the need to reason about relational domains under uncertainty arising in a variety of application domains, such as bioinformatics, the semantic web, robotics, and many more.

PLP is part of a wider current interest in probabilistic programming. Due to logic programming's strong theoretical underpinnings, PLP is one of the more disciplined areas of probabilistic programming. It builds upon and benefits from the large body of existing work in logic programming, both in semantics and implementation, but also presents new challenges to the field.

While PLP has already contributed a number of formalisms, systems and well understood and established results in, such as, parameter estimation, tabling, marginal probabilities and Bayesian learning, many questions remain open in this exciting, expanding field in the intersection of AI, machine learning and statistics. As is traditional in this series, the workshop would be designed to foster exchange between the various communities relevant to probabilistic logic programming, including probabilistic programming and statistical relational artificial intelligence.

Scope

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

This list is by no means exhaustive.

Call for Papers

We invite three types of submissions: At least one author of each accepted paper will be required to attend the workshop to present the contribution.

We are thinking about the possibility of allowing remote participation.

Papers should follow the standard CEUR template available at: https://www.overleaf.com/read/zdmkmssdrdtq#93a571

Important Dates

Proceedings

Papers will be published as CEUR workshop proceedings. We are discussing the possibility of inviting some selected papers to a special issue on an international journal.
