ICLP'99 Workshop on

Optimization and Implementation of Declarative Programming Languages


Las Cruces, New Mexico, Nov. 29 - Dec. 4, 1999


This workshop was run in conjunction with the 1999 International Conference on Logic Programming on November 29 - December 4, 1999. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum where new trends, ideas and developments concerning the optimization and implementation of declarative languages can be discussed. It is especially geared towards bringing researchers from low-level compilation and high-level optimization together, and papers or talks which bridge this gap are especially welcome. This workshop was tightly linked with the workshop entitled Parallelism and Implemenetation Techniques for Logic Programming Languages.


Compilers and linkers are getting more and more sophisticated and employ more and more high-level optimizations, such as partial evaluation or deforestation. Researchers in high-level optimization and transformation, on the other hand, realise that low-level issues have to be taken into account in order to apply their techniques in practice. So, in this workshop we wanted to provide the possibility for these two areas to meet and accelerate their synergy.
