CfP: "Methods for Modalities", 9-12 Nov 2011, Spain

7th Workshop on METHODS FOR MODALITIES (M4M-7), Osuna, Spain

The 7th Methods for Modalities workshop will take place at a University of Sevilla college in Osuna, a provincial town in between Malaga and Sevilla. Confirmed invited speakers for the workshop are:

     * Melving Fitting, City University of New York
     * David Gabelaia, Academy of Sciences, Georgia
     * Andreas Herzig, IRIT, Toulouse
     * Thomas Schwentick, Technical University of Dortmund

     * Yde Venema, University of Amsterdam

Part of M4M will be a half-day workshop LAMAS (Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems), see and the M4M page.

The proceedings of M4M Osuna will appear as a volume in the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) series.

The workshop METHODS FOR MODALITIES (M4M) aims to bring together researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods and tools based on modal logics. Here the term "modal logics" is conceived broadly, including temporal logic, description logic, guarded fragments, conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

We strongly encourage young researchers and students to submit papers, also about experimental and prototypical software tools which are related to modal logics.

Paper Submissions
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three categories.

- Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original research.

- System descriptions of up to 12 pages, describing new systems or significant upgrades of existing ones.

- Presentation-only papers, describing work recently published or submitted (with a 15 page limit). These will not be included in the proceedings, but pre-prints or post-prints can be made available to participants.

Papers should be prepared in ENTCS proceedings style, and should be submitted as .pdf. Submissions should be made via EasyChair at the following address:
