[** sincere apologies for duplicates **] Call for Participation 14th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation (WoLLIC'2007) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil July 2-5, 2007 (a satellite event to Brazilian Computer Society Conference - CSBC'07) WoLLIC is an annual international forum on inter-disciplinary research involving formal logic, computing and programming theory, and natural language and reasoning. Each meeting includes invited talks and tutorials as well as contributed papers. The Fourteenth WoLLIC will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from July 2 to July 5, 2007, in conjunction with the 27th Brazilian Computer Society Conference. It is sponsored by the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computacao (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Logica (SBL). PROCEEDINGS The proceedings of WoLLIC'2007, including both invited and contributed papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science. In addition, abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will be published as a special post-conference WoLLIC'2007 special issue of the journal Information and Computation.
