CFP: Conference on Automated Deduction CADE-22


   22nd International Conference on Automated Deduction
             McGill University, Montreal, Canada

              Submission Deadline: 23 Feb 2009

CADE is the major forum for the presentation of research in all
aspects of automated deduction. The conference programme will
include invited talks, paper presentations, system
descriptions, workshops, tutorials, and system competitions.

We invite high-quality submissions on the general topic of
automated deduction, including foundations, applications,
implementations and practical experiences.

Logics of interest include, but are not limited to

 o propositional, first-order, equational, higher-order,
   classical, description, modal, temporal, many-valued,
   intuitionistic, other non-classical, meta-logics,
   logical frameworks, type theory and set theory.

Methods of interest include, but are not limited to

 o saturation, resolution, instance-based, tableaux, sequent
   calculi, natural deduction, term rewriting, decision
   procedures, model generation, model checking, constraint
   solving, induction, unification, proof planning, proof
   checking, proof presentation and explanation.

Applications of interest include, but are not limited to

 o program analysis and verification, hardware verification,
   mathematics, natural language processing, computational
   linguistics, knowledge representation, ontology reasoning,
   deductive databases, functional and logic programming,
   robotics, planning, and other areas of AI.

will be published in separate calls and on the conference

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the
Springer LNAI/LNCS series.

Submissions can be made in the categories 'regular papers' and
'system descriptions'. The page limit in Springer LNCS style is
15 pages for regular papers and 5 pages for system
descriptions. Full system descriptions that provide in-depth
presentation of original ideas in an implemented system can be
submitted as regular papers. For the benefit of reviewers,
additional material may be provided by a clearly marked
appendix or a reference to a manuscript on a website. It is at
the discretion of the reviewers whether such supplements will
be considered. All regular papers will be evaluated according
to the highest standards in terms of originality, significance,
technical quality, and readability.

Submissions must be in English and standard conforming pdf
format. Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for
publication elsewhere. Authors are strongly encouraged to
produce their papers in LaTeX.

Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be
obtained via

To submit your paper please use the EasyChair submission system
at this address:

A paper title and a short abstract of about 100 words must be
submitted before the paper.
