First Call for Papers
The Annual Conference of the European Association for Computer Science Logic

August 23-27, 2010, Brno, Czech Republic

Submission (title & abstract):  March 26, 2010
Notification:                   May 17, 2010
Submission (full paper):        April 2, 2010

Computer Science Logic (CSL) is the annual conference of the European
Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL). The conference is intended
for computer scientists whose research activities involve logic, as well as
for logicians working on issues significant for computer science. The 19th
EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2010) and the 35th
International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science
(MFCS 2010) are federated and organized in parallel at the same place. The
federated MFCS & CSL 2010 conference has common plenary sessions and social
events for all participants. The technical program and proceedings of MFCS
2010 and CSL 2010 are prepared independently. The MFCS & CSL 2010 conference
is accompanied by satellite workshops on more specialized topics.

Suggested topics of interest include (but are not limited to) automated
deduction and interactive theorem proving, constructive mathematics and type
theory, equational logic and term rewriting, automata and games, modal and
temporal logic, model checking, decision procedures, logical aspects of
computational complexity, finite model theory, computational proof theory,
logic programming and constraints, lambda calculus and combinatory logic,
categorical logic and topological semantics, domain theory, database theory,
specification, extraction and transformation of programs, logical foundations
of programming paradigms, verification and program analysis, linear logic,
higher-order logic, nonmonotonic reasoning.

Proceedings will be published in the Advanced Research in Computing and
Software Science (ARCoSS) subline of the LNCS series. Each paper accepted
by the Programme Committee must be presented at the conference by one of
the authors, and a final copy must be prepared according to Springer's
guidelines. Submitted papers must be in Springer's LNCS style and of no more
than 15 pages, presenting work not previously published. They must not be
submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. The
PC chairs should be informed of closely related work submitted to a
conference or journal by March 19, 2010. Papers authored or coauthored by
members of the Programme Committee are not allowed.

Papers will be submitted through the conference website. Submitted papers
must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the Programme
Committee to assess the merits of the papers. Full proofs may appear in a
technical appendix which will be read at the reviewers' discretion. Authors
are strongly encouraged to include a well written introduction which is
directed at all members of the program committee.

The Ackermann Award for 2010 will be presented to the recipients at CSL'10.
