Logic Programming presents in many cases important advantages over imperative programming and other declarative paradigms. The last few years have witnessed the development of many useful extensions to logic programming such as support for parallel, concurrent, and distributed programming or the Constraint Logic Programming paradigm, with clear industrial applications. However, although the industrial impact of (constraint) programming is substantial compared to other new programming paradigms, it is still far from widespread. One of the factors that can presumably make the use of logic programming and its extensions more pervasive by industry is the availability of advanced programming environments which facilitate the development, debugging, and exploitation of systems based on these paradigms. Moreover, some of the extensions to logic programming make understanding the performance of program execution more difficult. This workshop aims at fostering interaction among different researchers and groups currently working on the design and implementation of practical tools and environments for the development of (constraint) logic programs and related paradigms.
