CALL FOR PAPERS: "Implementation of Logics" & APS-6: "Analytic Proof Systems", 10 Mar 2012, Merida, VENEZUELA

-IWIL-2012 - The 9th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics and APS-6 - The 6th International Workshop on Analytic Proof Systems -In conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and

The 9th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics will be held in March 2012 in 
conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial 
Intelligence, and Reasoning in Merida, Venezuela.

We are looking for contributions describing implementation techniques for and implementations of 
automated reasoning programs, theorem provers for various logics, logic programming systems, and 
related technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

+ Propositional logic and decision procedures, including SMT First-order 
+ and higher order logics Formal foundations for efficient 
+ implementation of logics Data structures and algorithms for the 
+ efficient representation and
   processing of logical concepts
+ Proof search organization and heuristics for logical reasoning systems 
+ Practical constraint handling Reasoning with ontologies Implementation 
+ of efficient theorem provers for different logics Implementation of 
+ efficient model finders for different logics Implementation of 
+ efficient systems for other processes in logic System descriptions of 
+ logical reasoning systems Issues of reliability, witness generation, 
+ and  witness verification Evaluation and benchmarking of provers and 
+ other logic-based systems I/O standards and communication between 
+ reasoning systems

We are particularly interested in contributions that help the community to understand how to build 
useful and powerful reasoning systems, and how to apply them in practice.

Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a position statement (2 pages), a 
short paper (up to 5 pages), or a full paper (up to
15 pages). Submissions should be made via EasyChair at

Submissions will be refereed by the program committee, which will select a balanced program of 
high-quality contributions.

Submissions should be in standard-conforming PDF. Final versions will be required to be submitted 
in LaTeX using the easychair.cls class file.
Proceedings will be published as EasyChair Proceedings.

If number and quality of the submissions warrant it, we plan to produce a special issue of a 
recognized journal on the topic of the workshop.

   Submission of papers/abstracts:  January 17th, 2012
   Notification of acceptance:      February 13th, 2012
   Camera ready versions due:       February 27th, 2012

Call for submissions:
6th International Workshop on Analytic Proof Systems will be held March 10, 2012 in the context of 
LPAR-18, March 10-15, 2012, Merida, Venezuela

Analyticity is a topic that connects foundational issues in logic with applications, mainly in 
automated deduction and analysis of proofs. The workshop is primarily intended to enhance awareness
for its topic and to promote corresponding discussions and contacts between experienced experts 
and younger colleagues.

Topics of Interests include
- Old and new types of analytic calculi: sequent calculi, tableaux, matrix
   systems, connection method, hypersequents, display calculus, deep
   inference, ...
- Cut elimination and normalization: new methods, complexity, abstract
   approaches, ...
- Proof search: modelling proof search, model extraction, disproving,
   decision procedures, ...
- Relation to other methods: analytic systems and resolution, lambda calculus,
   modal mu calculi, lambda-mu calculus, programming languages, ...
- Extracting information from proofs: extraction of algorithms, constructivity,
   model construction, Herbrand's theorem, ...
- Proof theoretic semantics and related topics: natural deduction, dialogue
   games, game semantics, ...
