CALL FOR PAPERS: Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning, June 2012, Manchester (U.K.)

http://www.eprover.org/EVENTS/PAAR-2012.html

PAAR 2012

GENERAL INFORMATION
   The third Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning
   will be held in June 2012 in Manchester, UK. PAAR will be
   associated with the 6th International Joint Conference on
   Automated Reasoning (IJCAR-2012), which is held as part of the
   Alan Turing Year 2012, just after The Alan Turing Centenary
   Conference.

SCOPE
   PAAR provides a forum for developers of automated reasoning
   tools to discuss and compare different implementation techniques,
   and for users to discuss and communicate their applications and
   requirements. The workshop will bring together different groups
   to concentrate on practical aspects of the implementation and
   application of automated reasoning tools. It will allow
   researchers to present their work in progress, and to discuss new
   implementation techniques and applications.

   Topics include but are not limited to:
     o automated reasoning in propositional, first-order,
       higher-order and non-classical logics;
     o implementation of provers (SAT, SMT, resolution, tableau,
       instantiation-based, rewriting, logical frameworks, etc);
     o automated reasoning tools for all kinds of practical
       problems and applications;
     o pragmatics of automated reasoning within proof assistants;
     o practical experiences, usability aspects, feasibility
       studies;
     o evaluation of implementation techniques and automated
       reasoning tools;
     o performance aspects, benchmarking approaches;
     o non-standard approaches to automated reasoning,
       non-standard forms of automated reasoning, new
       applications;
     o implementation techniques, optimisation techniques,
       strategies and heuristics, fairness;
     o support tools for prover development;
     o system descriptions and demos.

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

SUBMISSIONS
   Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a
   short abstract of up to 10 pages via EasyChair. 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.

   To submit a paper, go to the EasyChair PAAR page

       http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=paar2012

   and follow the instructions there.

FINAL VERSIONS
   Final versions should be prepared in LaTeX using the
   easychair.cls class file obtainable from
   http://www.easychair.org/easychair.zip. Proceedings will be
   published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings and will be available in
   print at the event.

   If quality and quantity of the subissions warrants this, we
   plan to produce a special issue of a recognized journal on the
   topic of the workshop.

IMPORTANT DATES:
   16 Apr 2012  Submission of abstracts (anywhere on the planet)
    7 May 2012  Notification
   28 May 2012  Camera ready versions due
   30 Jun 2012  Workshop
