                              CALL FOR PAPERS
                       4th International Workshop on
             the Resurgence of Datalog in Academia and Industry
                             Datalog 2.0 2022
                     September 5, 2022, Genova, Italy
                          Workshop of LPNMR 2022
Datalog 2.0 is a workshop for Datalog researchers, implementors, and
users. Its aim is to bring together researchers and practitioners
interested in different aspects of Datalog to share research
experiences, promote collaboration and identify directions for joint
future research.
The 4th International Workshop on the Resurgence of Datalog in Academia
and Industry (Datalog 2.0 2022) will be held in Genova, Italy, on
September 5, 2022. Datalog 2.0 2022 is a workshop of the 16th
International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-monotonic
Reasoning (LPNMR 2022).
The first edition of Datalog 2.0 was held in Oxford, UK, in 2010, and it
was by invitation only. Since Datalog has resurrected as a lively topic
with applications in many different areas of computer science, as well
as industry, the second and the third edition of the workshop, which
were held in Vienna in 2012 and in Philadelphia in 2019, respectively,
were open for submissions.
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
research on the foundational aspects of Datalog, as well as on its
applications in other areas of computer science and in industry.
Potential areas of application of Datalog may include (among others):
data management, data mining, knowledge representation and reasoning,
cloud computing, distributed computing, logic programming, privacy and
security, probabilistic reasoning, program analysis, programming
languages, semantic web, social networks, streaming, verification, web
Datalog 2.0 2022 welcomes two types of submissions
    * Long papers of up to 12 pages, presenting original research
    * Short papers of up to 5 pages that may contain either original
ongoing research
      or recently published results
in the following categories
    * Technical papers
    * System descriptions
    * Application descriptions
The indicated number of pages includes title page and references. All
submissions will be peer-reviewed.
Accepted papers will be submitted for publication in the CEUR Workshop
proceedings (
Authors can opt-out if desired.
At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop to
present the work. Submissions must be written in English, and formatted
according to Springer's guidelines and technical instructions available at:
Paper submission is enabled via the Datalog 2.0 2022 EasyChair site:
Paper registration: July 1
Paper submission: July 8
Notification: August 1
Final versions due: August 20
The workshop will take place in Genova Nervi, Italy, in the Collegio
Emiliani (, information available only in
Italian on this link), which is a college directly situated on the see.
(To be confirmed. Alternative: University of Genova.)
Genova is the capital of Liguria, stretching along the bay of the same
name from Nervi to the east as far as Voltri to the west. Genova's old
town district (reachable by local train, by bus, as well as by boat) is
one of the largest in Europe, and hosts some remarkable artistic and
architectural treasures, including the Palazzi dei Rolli, fifty or so
homes of the aristocracy entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Nervi is a former fishing village, now a suburb of Genoa, 7 km east of
central Genova. Two of the most important tourist attractions of Genoa
are in Nervi: the sea promenade, a 2 km walkway along the cliffs, and
the "Parchi di Nervi".
The sea promenade is famous for the stunning views that make it one of
Italy's most beautiful promenades. While the "Parchi di Nervi" is a park
of about 22 acres (9 hectares) created from the gardens of the Villa
Grimaldi, Villa Groppallo, and Villa Serra. It has typical Mediterranean
plant species and many exotic species and the entrance is just at the
end of the promenade.
In addition to offering a wealth of cultural attractions, Genova is a
fascinating destination for tourists, with its scenic vantage points,
sea promenades, aristocratic villas, and of course the Riviera to the
east and west, both easy to reach: Portovenere and Le Cinque Terre (also
UNESCO World Heritage Sites), Portofino and Camogli to the east and
Alassio, Sanremo, Bordighera to the west.
Of course, we will continuously monitor the pandemic situation in order
to evaluate whether the conference can be indeed held as an in-person
event, or we will need to switch to a hybrid event, if not completely
