                    July 31- August 5, 2011

 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.

 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.


   System competitions such as
   The CADE ATP System Competition (CASC)

 Details will be published in separate calls and on the
 conference website.

 Travel awards will be available to enable selected students to
 attend the conference. Details will be published on the
 conference website.

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

 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.
