FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS:4th International Symposium on Games, Automata, Logics, and Formal Verification, Aug 29th - 31th, 2013, Borca di Cadore, Dolomites, Italy -


The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from academia
and industry which are actively working in the fields of Games, Automata,
Logics, and Formal Verification. The idea is to cover an ample spectrum of
themes, ranging from theory to applications, and stimulate
cross-fertilization. Papers focused on formal methods are especially
welcome. Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on
all relevant topics in these areas. Papers discussing new ideas that are
at an early stage of development are also welcome.


The topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the

Automata Theory
Automated Deduction
Computational aspects of Game Theory
Concurrency and Distributed computation
Decision Procedures
Deductive, Compositional, and Abstraction Techniques for Verification
Finite Model Theory
First-order and Higher-order Logics
Formal Languages
Formal Methods for Systems Biology, Hybrid, Embedded, and Mobile Systems
Games and Automata for Verification
Game Semantics
Logical aspects of Computational Complexity
Logics of Programs
Modal and Temporal Logics
Model Checking
Models of Reactive and Real-Time Systems
Program Analysis and Software Verification
Run-time Verification and Testing
Specification and Verification of Finite and Infinite-state Systems

Thomas Henzinger (IST, Austria)
Christof Loeding (University of Aachen, Germany)


Submitted papers should not exceed fourteen (14) pages using EPTCS format,
be unpublished and contain original research. For papers reporting
experimental results, authors are encouraged to make their data available
with their submission.
Submissions must be in PDF or PS format and will be handled via EasyChair.


Abstract submission: May 1, 2013
Paper submission: May 8, 2013
Acceptance notification: June 17, 2013
Final version: June 26, 2013
Conference: August 29-31, 2013


The proceedings will be published by Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical
Computer Science.
A special issue of a major international journal to publish an extended
and revised version of the best symposium papers is also under
consideration. Revised versions of the selected papers from the previous
editions lead to one special issue of the International Journal of
Foundation of Computer Science (GandALF 2010) and two special issues
of Theoretical Computer Science (GandALF 2011 and 2012).
