                           Call For Papers

The  Journal of   Logic Programming is  planning   a special issue  on
Synthesis, Transformation and  Analysis of Logic Programs, tentatively
to  appear in end 1998.    High-quality  original research papers  are
invited on all aspects  of  synthesis, transformation and analysis  of
logic  programs, including constraint  ones.   Topics include, but are
not limited to:

   o  constructive, deductive and inductive synthesis,

   o  program transformation, specialization and partial evaluation,

   o  program correctness, termination, proof methods and verification,

   o  programming methodologies and environments, development of 
        automatic or semi-automatic tools, 

   o  applications of synthesis/transformation/analysis techniques.



Revised and enhanced versions of  papers published in conferences that
have not appeared  in  archival journals are eligible  for submission.
In particular, papers describing  important past research in this area
which  have  not  been  published  in   archival  journal  papers  are
solicited.  Surveys and comparison of state  of the art techniques are
also solicited.

Please  either send six copies  of your  paper,  or email a Postscript
file by 10th February, 1997, to
