LPA sponsors ICLP 2023
The 39th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP 2023) took place from the 9th July 2023 and marked the closing of the Year of Prolog celebrations. ICLP is the premiere international scientific conference on Logic Programming and related technologies. The event featured technical presentations, poster sessions, workshops, a Summer School, a Doctoral Consortium, along with a variety of thematic sessions and invited speakers/tutorialists.
LPA sponsored the evening reunion of the Logic Programming group from Imperial College lead by Prof Bob Kowalski. Clive Spenser also particpated in the Industrial Panel which was tasked with the question: "The role of symbolic AI in today's AI industrial landscape”.
50 years of Prolog
LPA was invited to participate in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Prolog which took place in Paris in November 2022.
In the summer of 1972, Alain Colmerauer and his team in Marseille developed and implemented the first version of the logic programming language Prolog. Together with both earlier and later collaborations with Robert Kowalski and his colleagues in Edinburgh, this work laid the practical and theoretical foundations for the Prolog and logic programming of today. Prolog and its related technologies soon became key tools of symbolic programming and Artificial Intelligence. The Year of Prolog celebrated the 50th anniversary of these events and highlighted the continuing significance of Prolog and Logic Programming both for symbolic, explainable AI, and for computing more generally. It also aimed to inspire a new generation of students, by introducing them to a more human-friendly, logic-based approach to computing.
