7TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF LOGICS
NOVEMBER, 2008, DOHA, QATAR
http://www.csc.liv.ac.uk/~konev/iwil2008

              CALL FOR PAPERS


The 7th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics will beheld in conjunction with the 15th International Conference on Logic forProgramming, Artificial Intelligence, and Reasoning, LPAR 2008(http://www.lpar.net/2008/), in Doha, Qatar, in November 2008. IWIL hasbeen unusually sucessful in bringing together many talented developers,and thus in sharing information about successful implementation techniquesfor automated reasoning systems and similar programs. We are looking forcontributions describing implementation techniques for and implementationsof automated reasoning programs, theorem provers for various logics, logicprogramming systems, and related technologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 * Data structures and algorithms for the efficient representation of
   logical concepts
 * Theorem proving systems
 * Model generation systems
 * Satisfiability-modulo-theories systems
 * Constraint-based systems
 * Logic programming systems
 * Implementation of propositional logic and decision procedures
 * Implementation of higher order logics and lambda-calculus
 * Implementation of new and unusual calculi
 * Integration of systems based on different logics
 * Transformations between different logics (e.g., abstractions)
 * Issues of reliability, witness generation, and witness verification
 * Evaluation and benchmarking of logic-based systems
 * Reasoning for ontologies
 * Ontology modularity, module extraction

Contributions that help the community to understand how to build useful
and powerful reasoning systems in practice are of particular interest.


Important dates:
---------------

 * Submission of abstracts: October 18th
 * Notification: October 27th
 * Workshop (preliminary): November 22rd, with LPAR 2008.


Submission
---------

Please submit an extended abstract of up to 10 pages in PDF, conforming to the
format produced by LaTeX using the easychair.cls class file available from the
workshop web-page.  Long listings of computer output should be relegated to a
referenced WWW site. Submission is via EasyChair.  All submissions will be
informally reviewed by the programme committee and accepted contributions will
be published in archived electronic notes.
