                            TABLEAUX 2009

                       Automated Reasoning with
                Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods

                             Oslo, Norway
                            6-10 July 2009

              *** EARLY REGISTRATION UNTIL 7 JUNE! ***


GENERAL INFORMATION

  This conference is the 18th in a series of international meetings on
  Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods.

  Tableaux 2009 will be held in Oslo, Norway, collocated with FTP
  2009, the workshop on First-Order Theorem Proving, see
  http://www.mpi-inf.mpg.de/~sofronie/ftp09/

  See the website for registration instructions.  Early registration
  is open until Sunday, 7 June.


TOPICS

  Tableau methods are a convenient formalism for automating deduction
  in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic. Areas
  of application include verification of software and computer
  systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
  required inference engines, and system diagnosis. The conference
  brings together researchers interested in all aspects - theoretical
  foundations, implementation techniques, systems development and
  applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with tableaux and
  related methods.
