The Logic Programming paradigm is a declarative approach to programming, based on formal reasoning processes, which is more appropriate to address some types of problems. Constraint logic programming allows addressing constraint satisfaction and optimization problems by modeling them in a straightforward and elegant fashion.
Aims: To get acquainted with the Logic Programming and Constraint Programming paradigms. To develop skills for abstract reasoning and declarative problem representation.
The course focuses on first-order logic programming. On the practical side the Prolog programming language is explored. Additionally, constraint logic programming is also introduced, and several application examples are provided.
Percentual Distribution: Scientific component: 50%; Technological component: 50%
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
Moreover, students should have acquired programming skills required for assignments of other courses in the domain of Artificial Intelligence.
Although the course does not have any special prerequisites, any knowledge obtained from the courses of Programming Fundamentals, Programming, Algorithms and Data Structures, and Algorithm Design and Analysis, are useful for the course of Logic Programming.
Foundations of Logic Programming
The Prolog Language
Advanced Prolog Programming Techniques
Constraint Logic Programming
Theoretical classes are used for exposition of the main (constraint) logic programming concepts, presentation and discussion of practical examples. Practical classes are used to solve programming exercises and for assisting students on their practical assignments.

Enrolled students are admitted to exam if they do not exceed the allowed number of non-attendance to lab classes (maximum 25% of non-attendance).
Final Grade = 50% * Assignments + 50% * Tests
Assignments = 65% * Assignment1 + 35% * Assignment2
Assignment1 = 25% * Inter1 + 75% * Final1
Tests = 65% * Test1 + 35% * Test2
Assignments: Final grade for both Assignments.
Inter1: Interim evaluation grade for Assignment 1.
Final1: Final evaluation grade for Assignment 1 (Report and Demo).
Assignment2: Evaluation grade for Assignment 2 (Report and Demo).
Tests: Final grade for both Tests.
Test1: Evaluation grade for Test1.
Test2: Evaluation grade for Test2.
In order to obtain aproval in the course, the following minimum scores apply:
- Assignment1: 7 values out of 20
- Assignment2: 7 values out of 20
- Test1: 7 values out of 20
- Test2: 5 values out of 20
Both tests will be made in the Moodle platform.
The course has 50% of practical evaluation, composed of two assignments that must be performed following the rules available at the course website. The 1st assignment interfaces with the LAIG course (for students enrolled in that course). The remaining 50% of the evaluation correspond to two tests to be made in the Moodle platform.
Evaluation in special seasons consists of one practical Assignment and a written Exam, where each of these components weights 50% on the final grade. Aproval in the course demands for a minimum score of 7 values out of 20 in each of these components (practical Assignment and written Exam).
All assessment components are required to all students. Students enrolled using special frequency modes, without obligation to attend to the practical classes, must arrange with the teachers appropriate consultation and evaluation sessions. They should also attent both tests in the scheduled dates.
The improvement of classification can only be obtained in the next edition of the course.
