The integration of logic and deduction into databases and knowledge
bases has created the field of deductive databases. Deductive
databases can be used for building intelligent information systems.
Logic programming provides a powerful declarative language for accessing
and maintaining knowledge in databases. In addition, techniques from
automated deduction and deductive databases are useful for achieving
efficient retrieval and reasoning in large knowledge bases.

Recent results in logic programming, constraint logic programming,
program transformation and optimization, and non-monotonic reasoning
are useful for extending the expressive power and the computational
efficiency of deductive database systems.

With the goal of creating opportunities for active discussions on new
research directions and the exchange of latest results in the above
areas, we are organizing a one day workshop, with presentations of half
an hour. This will be the sixth in a series of DDLP workshops that have
been held in conjunction with ICLP conferences since 1993.

Suggested topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:

  o  disjunctive deductive databases, uncertain information

  o  non-monotonic reasoning

  o  query languages and optimization

  o  program transformations

  o  heterogeneous knowledge bases

  o  constraint databases

  o  data mining

  o  semi-structured information, querying the Web

  o  object-oriented databases

  o  active, and temp{*filter*}databases


The primary focus is on new and original research. But we also
encourage the submission of papers describing products, prototypes in
development or benchmarks. Full papers or extended abstracts in English
of 6 to 10 pages are welcome. Authors are invited to send their papers
to one of the organizers by April 20, 1998. Submission in{*filter*}format
(please use the predefined format to be found at the DDLP'98 web pages)
by e-mail is encouraged.
