 Automated Deduction: Decidability, Complexity, Tractability

        Workshop affiliated with CADE-21 Bremen, 
               Germany, 15 July, 2007

Topics of interest for ADDCT include (but are not restricted to):

- Decidability:
   - decision procedures based on logical calculi such as:
     resolution, rewriting, tableaux, sequent calculi, or natural deduction
   - decidability in combinations of logical theories
- Complexity:
   - complexity analysis for fragments of first- (or higher) order logic
   - complexity analysis for combinations of logical theories
     (including parameterized complexity results)
- Tractability (in logic, automated reasoning, algebra, ...)

- Application domains for which complexity issues are essential
  (verification, security, databases, ontologies, ...)

Submissions are encouraged in one of the following categories: 

- Original research papers (up to 15 pages, LNCS style, including bibliography); 

- Work in progress (up to 6 pages, LNCS style, without bibliography).

- Presentation-only papers
