CALL FOR PAPERS: Logic in Computer Science, 25-28 June 2013, New Orleans LA, U.S.A.
LICS 2013 will be hosted by Tulane University, in New Orleans, LA USA, from June 25th to 28th, 2013. LICS 2013 will be co-located with MFPS13 (23-25 June) and CSF13 (28-30 June). The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and practical topics in computer science that relate to logic, broadly construed. We invite submissions on topics that fit under that rubric. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include: automata theory, automated deduction, categorical models and logics, concurrency and distributed computation, constraint programming, constructive mathematics, database theory, decision procedures, description logics, domain theory, finite model theory, theory of automatic structures, formal aspects of program analysis, formal methods, foundations of computability, higher-order logic, lambda and combinatory calculi, linear logic, logic in artificial intelligence, logic programming, logical aspects of bioinformatics, logical aspects of computational complexity, logical aspects of quantum computation, logical frameworks, logics of programs, modal and temporal logics, model checking, probabilistic systems, process calculi, programming language semantics, proof theory, real-time systems, reasoning about security, rewriting, type systems and type theory, and verification. Important Dates: Authors are required to submit a paper title and a short abstract of about 100 words in advance of submitting the extended abstract of the paper. Titles & Short Abstracts Due : January 7, 2013 Extended Abstracts Due : January 14, 2013 Author Notification (approximate) : March 22, 2013 Final Versions Due for Proceedings: April 26, 2013 Deadlines are firm; late submissions will not be considered. All submissions will be electronic via http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lics2013. Submission Instructions: Every extended abstract must be submitted in the IEEE Proceedings 2-column 10pt format and may not be longer than 10 pages, including references. LaTeX style files will be available on the conference website. The extended abstract must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the conference and to computer science, all phrased for the non-specialist. Technical development directed to the specialist should follow. References and comparisons with related work must be included. (If necessary, detailed proofs of technical results may be included in a clearly-labeled appendix, to be consulted at the discretion of program committee members.) Extended abstracts not conforming to the above requirements will be rejected without further consideration. Papers selection will be merit-based, with no a priori limit on the number of accepted papers. Results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops. The program chair must be informed, in advance of submission, of any closely related work submitted or about to be submitted to a conference or journal. Authors of accepted papers are expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper is expected to present it at the conference. Short Presentations: A session of short presentations, intended for descriptions of student research, works in progress, and other brief communications, is planned. These abstracts will not be published. Dates and guidelines will be posted on the LICS website. Kleene Award for Best Student Paper: An award in honor of the late Stephen C. Kleene will be given for the best student paper(s), as judged by the program committee. Special Issues: Full versions of up to three accepted papers, to be selected by the program committee, will be invited for submission to the Journal of the ACM. Additional selected papers will be invited to a special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science. Sponsorship: The symposium is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Mathematical Foundations of Computing and by ACM SIGACT, in cooperation with the Association for Symbolic Logic and the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science.
