The DC is designed for students currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program, though we are also open to exceptions (e.g., students currently in a Master's program and interested in doctoral studies). Students at any stage in their doctoral studies are encouraged to apply for participation in the DC. Applicants are expected to conduct research in areas related to logic and constraint programming; topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 


LP Foundations, LP Languages, Declarative Programming, LP Implementation, Related Paradigms and Synergies (e.g., Neuro-symbolic AI and Logic Programming), LP Applications.
