An ideal base for visiting the nearby National Parks and heritage coastline, York is ideal for a short break at any time of the year. York is the best preserved medieval city in the United Kingdom, surrounded by ancient stone walls and four magnificent 'bars' which form the gateways to the city. York Minster is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and a must for all visitors to York. The Jorvik Viking Centre breathes fresh life into York's Viking past in a brand new interpretation of 10th century Yorvik. Accommodation is available at the university campus,a 200-acre landscaped park, well-known for its idyllic lake and wildfowl. The convention banquet will be held at King's Manor, one of York's most attractive and unusual sites. Originally the Abbot's House of St Mary's Abbey, the King's Manor served the Tudors and Stuarts as a seat of government, becoming a school and residences in the 18th century. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The AISB'01 Symposia ==================== -------------------------------------- Eighth Workshop on Automated Reasoning -------------------------------------- Keywords: theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics, equational reasoning, unification, induction, logic programming, functional programming, constraint solving, formal methods for specifying, transforming and verifying systems (in particular safety-critical systems), non-monotonic reasoning, abduction logic-based knowledge representation (in particular description logics).
