CF Participation: WoLLIC 2009

*Call for Participation*

/*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 ",
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.

WoLLIC 2009  will be held from June 21 through 24, 2009, in the National Center of Sciences , the building that houses the National Institute of Informatics  in central Tokyo. 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).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2009 will appear as Volume 5514 of the FoLLI/LNAI  subline of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science .

*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
