CFP: WoLLIC 2011: Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation

http://wollic.org/wollic2011/

Call for Papers

http://wollic.org/>WoLLIC is an annual
international forum on inter-disciplinary
research involving formal logic, computing and
programming theory, and natural language and
reasoning. Each meeting includes invited talks
and tutorials as well as contributed papers. The
eighteenth WoLLIC will be held at the University
of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA, from May 18th
to 21st, 2011. It is sponsored by the
http://www.aslonline.org/Association for
Symbolic Logic (ASL), the
http://www.cin.ufpe.br/~igpl Interest Group in
Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the
http://www.folli.org/ The Association for Logic,
Language and Information (FoLLI), the
http://www.eatcs.org/ European Association for
Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the
http://www.sbc.org.br/ Sociedade Brasileira de
Computao (SBC), and the
http://www.cle.unicamp.br/sbl/ Sociedade Brasileira de Lgica (SBL).

Special Event

Paper submission

Contributions are invited on all pertinent
subjects, with particular interest in
cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not
exclusive areas of interest are: foundations of
computing and programming; novel computation
models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and
belief; formal methods in software and hardware
development; logical approach to natural language
and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and
resources; foundational aspects of information
organization, search, flow, sharing, and
protection. Proposed contributions should be in
English, and consist of a scholarly exposition
accessible to the non-specialist, including
motivation, background, and comparison with
related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in
font 10 or higher), with up to 5 additional pages
for references and technical appendices. The
paper's main results must not be published or
submitted for publication in refereed venues,
including journals and other scientific meetings.
It is expected that each accepted paper be
presented at the meeting by one of its authors.
Papers must be submitted electronically at the
WoLLIC 2011 EasyChair website. (Please go to
http://wollic.org/wollic2011/instructions.html
for instructions.) A title and single-paragraph
abstract should be submitted by January 1st, and
the full paper by January 8 (firm date).
Notifications are expected by February 21, and
final papers for the proceedings will be due by March 1 (firm date).

Proceedings
The proceedings of WoLLIC 2011, including both
invited and contributed papers, will be published
in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's http://www.springer.com/lncs LNCS
series. In addition, abstracts will be published
in the Conference Report section of the Logic
Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions
will be published as a special post-conference
WoLLIC 2011 issue of a scientific journal (soon to be announced).
