CFP & CF Workshops and Tutorials Proposals: CADE-23 Conference on Automated Deduction

http://cade23.ii.uni.wroc.pl/

CALL FOR PAPERS

                            CADE-23
     23nd International Conference on Automated Deduction
                        Wroclaw, Poland
                    July 31- August 5, 2011
                 http://cade23.ii.uni.wroc.pl/             
===================================================================

GENERAL INFORMATION
 CADE is the major forum for the presentation of research in all
 aspects of automated deduction. The conference programme will
 include invited talks, paper presentations, system
 descriptions, workshops, tutorials, and system competitions.

SCOPE
 We invite high-quality submissions on the general topic of
 automated deduction, including foundations, applications,
 implementations and practical experiences. 

 Logics of interest include, but are not limited to

   o propositional, first-order, equational, higher-order,
     classical, description, modal, temporal, many-valued,
     intuitionistic, other non-classical, meta-logics,
     logical frameworks, type theory and set theory.

 Methods of interest include, but are not limited to

   o saturation, resolution, instance-based, tableaux, sequent
     calculi, natural deduction, term rewriting, decision
     procedures, model generation, model checking, constraint
     solving, induction, unification, proof planning, proof
     checking, proof presentation and explanation.

 Applications of interest include, but are not limited to

   o program analysis and verification, hardware verification,
     synthesis, systematic software and hardware testing, 
     (computer-aided) mathematics, natural language processing, 
     computational linguistics, knowledge representation, 
     ontology reasoning, deductive databases, functional and 
     logic programming, robotics, planning and other areas of AI.

INVITED SPEAKERS:
     TBA

WORKSHOPS, TUTORIALS, SYSTEM COMPETITIONS:
   System competitions such as 
   The CADE ATP System Competition (CASC)

 Call for Workshop and Tutorial Proposals
----------------------------------------------------
CADE-23 is the 23rd International Conference on Automated Deduction,
the major forum for the presentation of research in all aspects of
automated deduction. Topics of interest range from theoretical
foundations to high-performance implementations in a wide variety
of logics and logical theories, with applications in areas like
- verification, testing and synthesis:
program analysis and verification, hardware verification,
systematic software and hardware testing, synthesis.
- (computer-aided) mathematics,
- natural language processing, computational linguistics,
- knowledge representation, ontology reasoning, deductive databases,
- functional and logic programming,
- robotics, planning, and other areas of AI.

Workshop and tutorial proposals for CADE-23 are solicited.
Both well-established workshops and newer ones are encouraged.
Similarly, proposals for workshops with a tight focus on a core
automated reasoning specialization, as well as those with a broader,
more applied focus, are very welcome.

1. Workshop Proposals

Please provide the following information:

+ Workshop title.
+ Names and affiliations of organizers.
+ Brief description of workshop goals and/or topics.
+ Proposed workshop duration
(from half a day to two days is possible).
+ If the workshop has met previously, please include the conference
affiliation for the previous meeting. If the workshop is new,
please indicate this.


2. Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials are expected to be half-day events. Tutorial proposals
should provide the following information:

+ Tutorial title.
+ Names and affiliations of organizers.
+ Brief description of the tutorial's goals and topics to be covered.
+ Whether or not a version of the tutorial has been given previously.


All proposals should be sent via email in plain text to the Workshop
and Tutorial Chair (astump@cs.uiowa.edu), for consideration by the
CADE-23 workshops and tutorials committee:

Nikolaj Bjorner (Microsoft Research), Program Co-Chair

Aaron Stump (The University of Iowa), Workshop and Tutorial Chair

Important dates:
Deadline for proposal submissions: December 7, 2010
Acceptance/rejection notification: January 7, 2011
Workshop dates: July 31 - August 1, 2011

STUDENT AWARDS
 Travel awards will be available to enable selected students to

 conference website.

PUBLICATION DETAILS:
 The proceedings of the conference will be published in the
 Springer LNCS/LNAI series.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:
 Submissions can be made in the categories 
   o 'regular papers' and
   o 'system descriptions'. 
 The page limit in Springer LNCS style is
   o 15 pages for regular papers and 
   o 5 pages for system descriptions. 
 Full system descriptions that provide in-depth presentation of 
 original ideas in an implemented system can be submitted as 
 regular papers. For the benefit of reviewers, additional 
 material may be provided by a clearly marked appendix or a 
 reference to a manuscript on a website. It is at the discretion 
 of the reviewers whether such supplements will be considered. 

 All regular papers will be evaluated according to the highest 
 standards in terms of originality, significance, technical quality, 
 and readability.

 Submissions must be in English and standard conforming pdf
 format. Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for
 publication elsewhere. Authors are strongly encouraged to
 produce their papers in LaTeX.

 Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be
 obtained via http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
