[** sincere apologies for duplicates **] Call for Papers 16th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation (WoLLIC 2009) Tokyo, Japan June 21-24, 2009 (SPECIAL: There will be a screening of George Csicsery's "N is a Number: A Portrait of Paul Erdos" http://zalafilms.com/films/nisanumber.html with kind permission of the film director) 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 Sixteenth WoLLIC will be held at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, Japan, from June 21 to 24, 2009. It is jointly sponsored by the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the 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). SPECIAL EVENT 2009 will mark the 60-th anniversary of the publication of Paul Erdos' elementary proof of the Prime Number Theorem. WoLLIC will celebrate this by screening the documentary about Paul Erdos which was directed by George Csicsery "N is a number - A Portrait of Paul Erdos" http://zalafilms.com/films/nisanumber.html <http://zalafilms.com/films/nisanumber.html> PAPER SUBMISSION Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas of interest are: foundations of computing and programming; novel computation models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; formal methods in software and hardware development; logical approach to natural language and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects of information organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection. Proposed contributions should be in English, and consist of a scholarly exposition accessible to the non-specialist, including motivation, background, and comparison with related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or higher), with up to 5 additional pages for references and technical appendices. The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for publication in refereed venues, including journals and other scientific meetings. It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by one of its authors. Papers must be submitted electronically at http://wollic.org/wollic2009/instructions.html A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by February 28, and the full paper by March 8 (firm date). Notifications are expected by April 19, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 3 (firm date). PROCEEDINGS The proceedings of WoLLIC 2009, 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 series (FoLLI-LNAI subseries). 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 2009 issue of Fundamenta Informaticae.
