=========================== LPAR-19 CALL FOR PAPERS =========================== ============================================================ The 19th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning ============================================================ Stellenbosch, South Africa, 14-19 December 2013 www.LPAR-19.info The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 19th LPAR will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Logic is a fundamental organizing principle in nearly all areas in Computer Science. It runs a multifaceted gamut from the foundational to the applied. At one extreme, it underlies computability and complexity theory and the formal semantics of programming languages. At the other extreme, it drives billions of gates every day in the digital circuits of processors of all kinds. Logic is in itself a powerful programming paradigm, but it is also the quintessential specification language for anything ranging from real-time critical systems to networked infrastructures. Logical techniques link implementation and specification through formal methods such as automated theorem proving and model checking. Logic is also the stuff of knowledge representation and artificial intelligence. Because of its ubiquity, logic has acquired a central role in Computer Science education. Topics ------ New results in the fields of computational logic and applications are welcome. Also welcome are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories and practices. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Abduction and interpolation methods * Automated reasoning * Constraint programming * Decision procedures * Description logics * Foundations of security * Hardware verification * Implementations of logic * Interactive theorem proving * Knowledge representation and reasoning * Logic and computational complexity * Logic and databases * Logic and games * Logic and machine learning * Logic and the web * Logic and types * Logic in artificial intelligence * Logic of distributed systems * Logic programming * Logical aspects of concurrency * Logical foundations of programming * Modal and temporal logics * Model checking * Non-monotonic reasoning * Ontologies and large knowledge bases * Probabilistic and fuzzy reasoning * Program analysis * Rewriting * Satisfiability checking * Satisfiability modulo theories * Software verification * Specification using logic * Unification theory Programme Chairs ---------------- * Ken McMillan * Aart Middeldorp * Andrei Voronkov Conference Chairs ---------------- * Bernd Fischer * Geoff Sutcliffe Workshop Chair -------------- * Laura Kovacs Submission Details ------------------ Submissions of two kinds are welcome: * Regular papers that describe solid new research results. They can be up to 15 pages long in LNCS style, including figures and references, but excluding appendices (that reviewers are not required to read). * Experimental and tool papers that describe implementations of systems, report experiments with implemented systems, or compare implemented systems. They can be up to 8 pages long in the LNCS style. Both types of papers can be electronically submitted in PDF via EasyChar: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lpar19. Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract a week before the paper submission deadline (see below). Participation ------------- Authors of accepted papers are required to ensure that at least one of them will be present at the conference. Important Dates --------------- * Abstract submission: 22nd July * Paper submission: 2nd August * Notification of acceptance: 27th September * Camera-ready papers: 9th October * Conference: 14th-19th December =========================== LPAR-19 WORKSHOPS =========================== LPAR-19 will be preceded by four workshops in specialised areas of logic: * The 10th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics - IWIL http://www.eprover.org/EVENTS/IWIL-2013.html * The 7th International Workshop on Analytic Proof Systems - APS http://www.logic.at/staff/chrisf/ws/LPAR-APS-7.html * The 1st International Workshop on Algebraic Logic in Computer Science - ALCS http://www2.cs.cas.cz/~cintula/lpar-workshop-ALCS.html * The 1st International Workshop on Logics and Reasoning for Conceptual Models - LRCM See their individual web pages (linked from the LPAR-19.info page too) for further details. __________________________________________ - ELSNET mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_elsnet.org - To manage your subscription go to: https://list.hum.uu.nl/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
