Call for Papers

WoLLIC is an annual international forum on 
inter-disciplinary research involving formal logic, computing and programming 
theory, and natural language and reasoning. Each meeting includes invited talks 
and tutorials as well as contributed papers. The twentieth WoLLIC will be held 
at the Technische Universitt Darmstadt, Germany, from August 20th to 23rd, 
2013. It is sponsored by the Association for 
Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure 
and Applied Logics (IGPL), the The Association for 
Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), 
theEuropean Association for 
Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the European 
Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), the 
Sociedade Brasileira de Computao (SBC), and the 
Sociedade Brasileira de Lgica (SBL).


Paper submission
Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular interest 
in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas of interest are: 
foundations of computing and programming; novel computation models and 
paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; formal methods in software and 
hardware development; logical approach to natural language and reasoning; 
logics of programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects of information 
organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection. Proposed contributions 
should be in English, and consist of a scholarly exposition accessible to the 
non-specialist, including motivation, background, and comparison with related 
works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or higher), with up to 5 
additional pages for references and technical appendices. The paper's main 
results must not be published or submitted for publication in refereed venues, 
including journals and other scientific meetings. It is expected that each 
accepted paper be presented at the meeting by one of its authors. Papers must 
be submitted electronically at the WoLLIC 2012 EasyChair website. (Please go to 
http://wollic.org/wollic2013/instructions.html 
for instructions.) A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by 
March 25th, and the full paper by March 29th (firm date). Notifications are 
expected by May 3rd, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 
15th (firm date).

Proceedings
The proceedings of WoLLIC 2013, including both invited and contributed papers, 
will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in Springer's 
LNCS series. In addition, abstracts will be 
published in the Conference Report section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, 
and selected contributions will be published as a special post-conference 
WoLLIC 2013 issue of a scientific journal (to be confirmed).
