CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Joint Automated Reasoning Workshop and Deduktionstreffen, 23-24 July 2014, Vienna, AUSTRIA

http://vsl2014.at/pages/ARWDT-index.html

AIMS AND SCOPE

 For many years the British and the German automated reasoning communities
 have successfully run independent series of workshops for anybody working
 in the area of automated reasoning. Although open to the general public
 they addressed in the past primarily the British and the German
 communities, respectively. At the occasion of the Vienna Summer of Logic
 the two series will have a joint event in Vienna as an IJCAR workshop. In
 the spirit of the two series there will be no formal proceedings and we try
 to maintain the informal open atmosphere of the two series. We welcome in
 particular research students to present their work. We solicit for all work
 related to automated reasoning and its applications. We are particularly
 interested in work-in-progress and the presentation of half-baked ideas.

 As in the previous years, we aim to bring together researchers from all
 areas of automated reasoning in order to foster links among researchers
 from various disciplines; among theoreticians, implementers and users
 alike, and among international communities, this year not just the British
 and German communities.


 TOPICS INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

    - Theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics
    - Interactive theorem proving, logical frameworks, proof assistants, 
     proof-planning
    - Reasoning methods 
      o Saturation-based, instantiation-based, tableau, SAT
       o Equational reasoning, unification
       o Constraint satisfaction
       o Decision procedures, SMT
       o Combining reasoning systems
       o Non-monotonic reasoning, commonsense reasoning,
       o Abduction, induction
       o Model checking, model generation, explanation
    - Formal methods to specifying, deriving, transforming
      and verifying computer systems, requirements and software
    - Logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning:
       o Ontology engineering and reasoning
       o Domain specific reasoning (spatial, temporal, epistemic,agents, etc)
    - Logic and functional programming, deductive databases
    - Implementation issues and empirical results, demos
    - Practical experiences and applications of automated reasoning

 For each accepted abstract we expect that one of the authors gives a short
 plenary presentation as well as a poster presentation at the
 workshop. Authors of accepted presentations will have a chance to revise
 their submissions.

 Suggestions for a panel session should include a list of potential
 panellists in addition to the topic and to a statement of relevance. These
 suggestions should also be submitted via the same EasyChair route.
