                         CLIMA XII
              12th International Workshop on
        Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems

with special sessions on:
          * Norms and Normative Multi-Agent Systems.
          * Logics for Games and Social Choice.

           Barcelona, Spain, July 17-18, 2011.

                 Affiliated with IJCAI'11.

Proceedings: LNCS/LNAI volume (available at the workshop).

JLC Special Issue: Selected extended papers will be published in a
Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation.


The purpose of the CLIMA Workshop Series is to provide a forum for
discussing techniques, based on computational logic, for representing,
programming and reasoning about agents and multi-agent systems in a
formal way.

Following the previous ten, very successful, editions, the 12th CLIMA
will be affiliated with IJCAI'11 and will take place in Barcelona, Spain,
on the 17th and 18th of July 2011.

In addition to CLIMA's regular topics and sessions, this edition will
feature two special sessions:

* Norms and Normative Multi-Agent Systems
* Logics for Games and Social Choice

We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original
papers, which have not been accepted for publication nor are currently
under review for another journal or conference.

LNCS Proceedings: CLIMA's Proceedings will be published by
Springer as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science, and
will be available in time for the workshop.

JLC Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will
be invited to extend and re-submit their work to be considered for inclusion
in a CLIMA Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation.

Detailed information regarding CLIMA, its topics of interest, the two Special
Sessions, formatting and submission instructions is available at

Important dates:
* Submission: April 4th (Abstracts) / April 8th (Papers)
