Special: A screening of I want to be a mathematician: A conversation with Paul Halmos

Organisation Department of Mathematics, Universidade de Braslia, Brazil Centro de Informtica, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil

Call for Papers

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. The Seventeenth WoLLIC will be held in Braslia, Brazil, from July 6th to 9th, 2010. It is sponsored by theAssociation for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the The Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computao (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Lgica (SBL).

Special Event 2010 will mark the 50-th anniversary of the first publication of Paul Halmos' classic book Nave Set Theory by Springer Verlag. WoLLIC will celebrate this by screening the documentary about Paul Halmos which was directed by George Csicsery: "I want to be a mathematician. A conversation with Paul Halmos"

Paper submission Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas of interest are: foundations of computing and programming; novel computation models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; formal methods in software and hardware development; logical approach to natural language and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects of information organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection. Proposed contributions should be in English, and consist of a scholarly exposition accessible to the non-specialist, including motivation, background, and comparison with related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or higher), with up to 5 additional pages for references and technical appendices. The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for publication in refereed venues, including journals and other scientific meetings. It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by one of its authors. Papers must be submitted electronically at the WoLLIC 2010 EasyChair website. (Please go to for instructions.) A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by February 28, and the full paper by March 7 (firm date). Notifications are expected by April 12, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 3 (firm date).

Proceedings The proceedings of WoLLIC 2010, including both invited and contributed papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in Springer's LNCS series (TBC). In addition, abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will be published as a special post-conference WoLLIC 2010 issue of a scientific journal (soon to be announced).
