CFP: LPAR-17: Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning

  The 17th International Conference on
       Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning

            Yogyakarta, Indonesia  -  October 10th-15th, 2010

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial
Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of
the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning,
computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to
present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to
exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 17th LPAR
will be held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Conference Chair: Steffen Hoelldobler
Programme Chairs: Chris Fermueller, Andrei Voronkov

Submissions of two kinds are welcome:
* Regular papers that describe solid new research results.
* Experimental and tool papers that describe implementations of systems,
 report experiments with implemented systems, or compare implemented systems.
The submission deadline is 8th June.

                   LPAR-17 WORKSHOPS October 10th, 2010

       APS 5 - 5th International Workshop on Analytic Proof Systems

Analyticity is a topic that connects foundational issues in logic with
applications, mainly in automated deduction and analysis of proofs. The
workshop is primarily intended to enhance awareness for its topic and to
promote corresponding discussions and contacts between experienced experts
and younger colleagues. The submission deadline is 10th September.

Organizers: Matthias Baaz, Christian Fermueller

  IWIL 2010 - The 8th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics

IWIL has been unusually sucessful in bringing together many talented
developers, and thus in sharing information about successful implementation
techniques for automated reasoning systems and similar programs.  We are
looking for contributions describing implementation techniques for and
implementations of automated reasoning programs, theorem provers for various
logics, logic programming systems, and related technologies. The submission
deadline is 9th August.

Organizers: Evgenia Ternovska, Stephan Schulz, Geoff Sutcliffe
