CFP: ICLA 2011: Indian Conference on Logic and its Applications

                               January 9--11, 2011
                             Delhi University, India


                             CALL FOR PAPERS

ALI, the Association for Logic in India, announces the fourth edition of its biennial International Conference on Logic and its Applications (ICLA), to be held at the Delhi University, from January 9 to 11, 2011.

ICLA is a forum for bringing together researchers from a wide variety of fields that formal logic plays a significant role in, along with mathematicians, philosophers and logicians studying foundations of formal logic in itself. A special feature of this conference is the inclusion of studies in systems of logic in the Indian tradition, and historical research on logic.

As in the earlier events in this series, we shall have eminent logicians as invited speakers. Pre-conference workshops during Jan 5-8 are also being planned. Details of these workshops will be posted on the conference website in due course. Details of the last ICLA (2009) may be found at


Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research in any area of logic and applications. Articles on mathematical and philosophical logic, foundations and philosophy of mathematics and the sciences, history of logic, Indian systems of logic, use of formal logic in areas of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, or on the relationship between logic and other branches of knowledge, are welcome.

Submissions must be in English and should provide sufficient detail to allow the programme committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should clearly present the context of the problem, summary of the main results and should contain the technical development directed to the specialist. Comparison with related work must be included. The submission may not exceed 12 pages using Springer's LNCS format ( If necessary, detailed proofs of technical results can be included in a clearly marked appendix which may be read at the discretion of the programme committee. All submissions will be in electronic form and submitted via easychair submission system. Simultaneous submission to journals or to other conferences with proceedings is not allowed.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be made available at the time of the conference. It is expected that the conference proceedings will appear as a volume in the FoLLI series of Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence; this will be confirmed soon.

Deadline for Submission:                               16 July 2010

Notification to Authors:                               5 September 2010
