Abstract

Research at ECRC has been concentrated on studying the foundations and developing platforms to build large decision support systems. Logic programming provides a declarative paradigm from which these platforms can be built. The present paper presents an overview of a logic programming system which is a step forward towards building large decision support systems. ElipSys, the logic programming system, integrates and extends three main strands of research at ECRC: parallel evaluation, constraint satisfaction and large knowledge base systems.
