CALL FOR PAPERS: Automated Reasoning Workshop, 2-4 April 2012, Manchester (U.K.)
ARW 2012, The University of Manchester
GENERAL INFORMATION The 19th Automated Reasoning Workshop (ARW 2012) will be held at the University of Manchester from 2 to 4 April 2012. This year the workshop will be collocated with the 28th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science. SCOPE The workshop will provide an informal forum for the automated reasoning community to discuss recent work, new ideas and applications, and current trends. It aims to bring together researchers from all areas of automated reasoning in order to foster links and facilitate cross-fertilisation of ideas among researchers from various disciplines, from theoreticians, from implementers and from users of automated reasoning methodologies. Topics include but are not limited to: o Theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics o Interactive theorem proving, logical frameworks, proof assistants, proof planning o Reasoning methods Saturation-based, instantiation-based, tableau, SAT Equational reasoning, unification Constraint satisfaction Decision procedures, SMT Combining reasoning systems Non-monotonic reasoning, commonsense reasoning, Abduction, induction Model checking, model generation, explanation o Formal methods to specifying, deriving, transforming and verifying computer systems, requirements and software o Logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning: Ontology engineering and reasoning Domain specific reasoning (spatial, temporal, epistemic, agents, etc) o Logic and functional programming, deductive databases o Implementation issues and empirical results, demos o Practical experiences and applications of automated reasoning The workshop will be highly interactive, giving all attendees the opportunity to participate. It will contain sessions for displaying posters and presenting system demonstrations, and open discussion sessions organised around specific topics. INVITED SPEAKERS Reiner Haehnle Technische Universitaet Darmstadt Daniel Kroening University of Oxford SUBMISSIONS We invite the submission of camera-ready, two-page extended abstracts about recent work, work in progress, or a system description. The abstract can describe work that has already been published elsewhere. The main objective of the abstracts is to spread information about recent work in our community, and we expect to accept most on-topic submissions, but we may ask for revisions. To prepare your submission, please use the ARW LaTeX style file provided from the workshop website. Each submission should include the names and complete addresses (including email) of all authors. Correspondence will be sent to the first author, unless otherwise indicated. Submissions should be sent in PDF format to ARWorkshop2012@gmail.com using *ARW12Submission* as subject of the email. For the final versions we require all sources (tex file and any input files). PUBLICATION DETAILS Abstracts will be published in informal workshop notes and will be made available on the internet. PRESENTATIONS Each workshop participant will be allocated a 5-10 minute slot (depending on time constraints), for a short talk to introduce their research. Each participant will also be allocated space in a poster session, where they can further present and discuss their work. Please prepare posters for the event. STUDENT GRANTS We expect to have a limited number of grants available to PhD students who wish to attend ARW 2012. Details will be published on the workshop website.
