This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning, LPAR 2008, which took place in Doha, Qatar, during November 22-27, 2008. The 45 revised full papers presented together with 3 invited talks were carefully revised and selected from 153 submissions. The papers address all current issues in automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications and are organized in topical sections on automata, linear arithmetic, verification knowledge representation, proof theory, quantified constraints, as well as modal and temporal logics.
