Call for Papers/Participation:


The Third International Conference and Exhibition
on Practical Applications of Prolog

Paris, France
4th - 7th April 1995


The PAP conferences are the world's showcase for Prolog systems and
applications. Outstanding examples of fielded industrial applications
from all over the world formed the core of the two previous

The main focus of PAP '95 will be on Prolog applications that have
shown clear benefits for industry, commerce or education.

The programme will include paper presentations, invited talks,
plenary and panel sessions, tutorials and workshops.

PAP '95 will show that Prolog is a highly effective tool for the
development and delivery of industrial strength applications.
Sponsored by the Prolog Management Group, Compulog-Net, and the
Association for Logic Programming, the PAP'95 conference and
exhibition will provide a forum for technical exchange between all
members of the world-wide logic programming community: academics,
industrialists and Prolog systems vendors.

Call For Papers

Papers are solicited describing fielded applications written in
Prolog or other logic programming languages.
Suitable application areas include but are not limited to:

CAD and Manufacturing Computer-Based Training
Parallel Systems Data Processing
Graphics and Animation Natural language
Financial Analysis Automated Documentation
Simulation Planning and Scheduling
Object-Oriented Systems Application Delivery
User Interface Design Tools Environments and Toolkits
Tools and Techniques Knowledge-Based Systems
Deductive Database Systems Constraint Logic Programming
Software Engineering Hybrid Systems

Call for Industrial Reports

Pressure of time and competing priorities mean that details of
industrial applications are often never written up as formal papers.
In recognition of this, it will be possible to submit a brief report
on a fielded application or activity.

Industrial Exhibition

The exhibition provides an opportunity for software developers to
demonstrate Prolog applications. You are invited to contact the
organiser if you wish to exhibit at the event. Please give details of
your program and appropriate hardware platforms.

In addition, if you would like to organise or participate in a
workshop or tutorial please contact the organiser.


The conference is sponsored and supported by the Prolog Management
Group, Compulog Net, the ALP, and national equivalents, and
individual members of the PMG. The PMG is an international consortium
of major companies including AI International Ltd, BIM, Boeing,
Cosytec SA, Dassault, Delphia, DS Logics, ECRC, IBM, IF Computer,
Integral Solutions Ltd, IQSoft, LPA, Paralogic, Prolog Development
Center A/S, PrologIA, Quintus Corporation, SICS, and Siemens Nixdorf.
