Call for Nominations: ALP Alain Colmerauer Prolog Heritage Prize, Deadline: 2 Sep 2022

*** Call for Nominations ***

The ALP Alain Colmerauer Prolog Heritage Prize

Organized by The Association for Logic Programming (ALP) and The Prolog
Heritage Association

In the summer of 1972, Alain Colmerauer and his team in Marseille developed
and implemented the first version of the logic programming language Prolog.
Together with both earlier and later collaborations with Robert Kowalski and
his colleagues in Edinburgh, this work laid the practical and theoretical
foundations for the Prolog and logic programming of today. Prolog and its
related technologies soon became key tools of symbolic programming and
Artificial Intelligence.

The Year of Prolog celebrates the 50th anniversary of these events and
highlights the continuing significance of Prolog and Logic Programming both
for symbolic, explainable AI, and for computing more generally.

This celebration will culminate with the award of the inaugural edition of the
ALP Alain Colmerauer Prolog Heritage Prize for recent practical
accomplishments that highlight the benefits of Prolog-inspired computing for
the future. The Prize will be presented at the Prolog Day Symposium on
November 10, 2022, in Paris, France.

Any individual or group of individuals can nominate themselves or their
institution(s)/organization(s) for the Prize.

The Prize will be given for depth, novelty, and proven or potential impact. A
shortlist of up to five nominations will also be selected in the process.

The winner(s) will receive a certificate and a cash Prize of 2,000 Euros. The
expenses of the shortlisted nominees will be covered up to 1,000 Euros,
supported by the Artificial Intelligence Journal.

Deadline for nominations/submissions:
*** September 2, 2022 ***

Notification of the shortlisted candidates:
*** September 30, 2022 ***

The Year of Prolog and its activities, including the Alain Colmerauer Prize,
are sponsored by the Association for Logic Programming, the Prolog Heritage
Association, the AI Journal, Institut Carnot Cognition, and Institut Fredrik
Bull, among others.
