CFP: CLODEM 2010 - Comparing Logical Decision Methods

http://www2.imm.dtu.dk/~vfgo/CLODEM2010/CLODEM2010.html

 CLODEM 2010                     
     Workshop on Comparing Logical Decision Methods      
                                                         
 http://www2.imm.dtu.dk/~vfgo/CLODEM2010/CLODEM2010.html 
                                                         
               Edinburgh, July 15th, 2010                
      affiliated with LICS and IJCAR at FLoC'10         
                                                        

TOPIC AND OBJECTIVE:
Methods for deciding satisfiability of formulae are of vital
importance for both the theoretical relevance and practical
impact of a logic. Different logics require different decision
procedures. Nevertheless, certain methodologies like
terminating semantic tableaux, automata, games, SAT/SMT
methods, resolution, reductions, etc. have proved to be
successful in providing decidability results for several, even
quite different logics.
   Perception of some methodology being better than others has
grown within certain communities, for example regarding
automata-based techniques in automatic verification or
tableau-based techniques in knowledge representation. Such
perception, however, is often not based on systematic
comparative analysis. Sometimes, different methodologies
also turn out to do or even be the same in certain cases.
Yet, few formal technical results to that effect are known,
and the scientific discussions on the pros and cons, and
similarities and differences between different methodologies
have been rather sporadic so far.
   The purpose of this workshop is to provide an expert forum
for such discussion, to provoke and foster discussion between
communities, and to stimulate further research on that topic.
It is a generalization and follow-up of the AutoTab workshop
which was held with TABLEAUX'09 last year.
   The workshop welcomes contributions on comparisons between
different methods, exhibiting differences or similarities, in
theory or in practice, in general or with respect to a certain
logic.


SUBMISSIONS:
Submissions should be in the form of extended abstracts of at
most 5 A4 pages in PDF format, preferably using Springer LNCS
style or a comparable format. Submissions may be based on new
and original, or on already published or submitted work, but
they should address the topic of the workshop.
   The abstracts of the workshop talks will be included in
informal proceedings. No formal proceedings are currently
planned, but if the workshop attracts sufficiently many
good and original contributions, a journal special issue
will be organized after the event.
   One author of each submission that is accepted for the
workshop must register for and attend the workshop in order
to present the paper.


IMPORTANT DATES:
Submissions deadline:                March 27, 2010
Notification deadline:               April 27, 2010
Finalized workshop programme:        April 30, 2010
Final versions of abstracts
for the informal proceedings:        May 31, 2010
Workshop:                            July 15, 2010
