CALL FOR PAPERS: Intuitionistic Modal Logic and Applications, 3-7 April 2013, Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL
Affiliated with the 4th World Congress on Universal Logic [UNILOG 2013] http://uni-log.org/start4.html
Constructive modal logics and type theories are of increasing foundational and practical relevance in computer science. Applications of constructive modal logics are in type disciplines for programming languages, meta-logics for reasoning about a variety of computational phenomena and explanatory frameworks in philosophical logic. The workshop aims at developing and explaining theoretical and methodological issues centered around the question of how the proof-theoretic strengths of constructive logics can best be combined with the model-theoretic strengths of modal logics. Practical issues center around the question of which modal connectives with associated laws or proof rules capture computational phenomena accurately and at the right level of abstraction. In its sixth edition, the Workshop on Intuitionistic Modal Logic and Applications will take place in Rio de Janeiro at the feet of the Sugar Loaf at the military school EsCEME. Previous editions of this conference were held: as part of the 14th Congress of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science, Nancy, France, 25 July, 2011, as part of LiCS2008, Pittsburgh, USA, as part of LiCS2005, Chicago, USA, of FLoC2002, Copenhagen, Denmark and as part of FLoC1999, Trento, Italy. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Modal Logics * Logical frameworks * Proof theory * Type theory * Automated deduction * Formal semantics of languages and systems * Applications IMLA 2013 also aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing work in progress, and therefore to provide feedback to authors on their preliminary research. Submissions Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form of full papers (with a maximum of 12 pages) or short papers (with a maximum of 6 pages). They must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. The papers should be prepared in latex using EPTCS style. The submission should be in the form of a PDF file uploaded to IMLA 2013 page at Easychair https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=imla2013 until the submission deadline in December 1st, by midnight, Central European Standard Time (GMT+1). The workshop pre-proceedings will be handed-out at workshop registration. At least one of the authors should register at the conference.
