CLODEM 2010
FLoC'10 Workshop on Comparing Logical Decision Methods

Edinburgh, July 15th, 2010
affiliated with LICS and IJCAR

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.
