Introduction to the 30th International Conference on Logic Programming Special Issue

2014 Theory and Practice of Logic Programming  
The 30th edition of the International Conference of Logic Programming took place in Vienna in July 2014 at the Vienna Summer of Logic - the largest scientific conference in the history of logic. Following the initiative in 2010 taken by the Association for Logic Programming and Cambridge University Press, the full papers accepted for the International Conference on Logic Programming again appear as a special issue of Theory and Practice of Logic Programming (TPLP) - the30th International
