1 August 2022, The 9th Workshop on Probabilistic Logic Programming (PLP 2022), Haifa, Israel

Date: Monday 1 August 2022
Location: Haifa, Israel
Deadline: Friday 10 June 2022

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. Developments in PLP include new languages that combine logic programming with probability theory as well as algorithms that operate over programs in these formalisms. By promoting probabilities as explicit programming constructs, inference, parameter estimation and learning algorithms can be run over programs that represent highly structured probability spaces. Partly due to logic programming's strong theoretical underpinnings, PLP is fast becoming a very well founded area of probabilistic programming.

This workshop provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, presentation of results and preliminary work in all areas related to probabilistic logic programming. While PLP has already contributed a number of formalisms, systems and well understood and established results in: 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. The workshop encompasses all aspects of combining logic, algorithms, programming and probability. It aims to bring together researchers in all aspects of probabilistic logic programming, including theoretical work, system implementations and applications. Interactions between theoretical and applied minded researchers are encouraged.

A mixture of papers are sought including: new results, work in progress as well as technical summaries of recent substantial contributions. Papers presenting new results should be 6-15 pages in length. Work in progress and technical summaries can be shorter (2-5 pages). Contributions should be prepared in the 1-column CEURART style. Submissions will be managed via EasyChair. At least one author of each accepted paper will be required to attend the workshop to present the contribution.
