1st CALL FOR PAPERS: Logical Foundations of Computer Science, 6-8 Jan 2013, San Diego CA (U.S.A.)

LFCS 2013

The LFCS series provides an outlet for the fast-growing body of work in the logical foundations of 
computer science, e.g., areas of fundamental theoretical logic related to computer science. The 
LFCS series began with Logic at Botik, Pereslavl-Zalessky, 1989, and was co-organized by Albert R. 
Meyer (MIT) and Michael Taitslin (Tver), after which organization passed to Anil Nerode.

LFCS Steering Committee: Anil Nerode - General Chair, Stephen Cook, Dirk van Dalen, Yuri 
Matiyasevich, J. Alan Robinson, Gerald Sacks, Dana Scott.

LFCS Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: constructive mathematics and type theory; 
logic, automata and automatic structures; computability and randomness; logical foundations of 
programming; logical aspects of computational complexity; logic programming and constraints; 
automated deduction and interactive theorem proving; logical methods in protocol and program 
verification; logical methods in program specification and extraction; domain theory logic; 
logical foundations of database theory; equational logic and term rewriting; lambda and combinatory
calculi; categorical logic and topological semantics; linear logic; epistemic and temporal logics;  
intelligent and multiple agent system logics; logics of proof and justification; nonmonotonic 
reasoning; logic in game theory and social software; logic of hybrid systems; distributed system 
logics; mathematical fuzzy logic; system design logics; other logics in computer science.

LFCS'13 Program Committee: Sergei Artemov (New York) - PC Chair; Steve Awodey (CMU); Alexandru 
Baltag (Oxford); Andreas Blass (Ann Arbor); Samuel Buss (San Diego); Walter Dean (Warwick); Rod 
Downey (Wellington, NZ); Ruy de Queiroz (Recife, Brasil); Antonio Montalban (Chicago); Rosalie 
Iemhoff (Ultrecht); Bakhadyr Khoussainov (Auckland, NZ); Roman Kuznets (Bern); Lawrence Moss 
(Bloomington, IN); Robert Lubarsky (Florida Atlantic University); Victor Marek (Lexington, KY); 
Franco Montagna (Siena); Anil Nerode (Cornell) - General LFCS Chair; Mati Pentus (Moscow); Jeffrey 
Remmel (San Diego); Bryan Renne (Amsterdam); Philip Scott (Ottawa); Alex Simpson (Edinburgh); 
Sonja Smets (Groningen); Michael Rathjen (Leeds); Alasdair Urquhart (Toronto); Michael 
Zakharyashchev (London).

LFCS'13 Local Organizing Committee: Jeff Remmel (Chair), Samuel Buss, Victor Marek.

Submission details. Proceedings will be published in the LNCS series.  There will be a 
post-conference volume of selected works published in the Annals of Pure and Applied Logic.
