5th Worskhop on "Methods for Modalities" (M4M-5)
                    http://m4m.loria.fr/M4M5
           Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan, France
                         November 29-30
====================================================================

Scope
-----
The workshop ``Methods for Modalities'' (M4M) aims to bring together
researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods
and tools based on modal logics. Here the term ``modal logics'' is
conceived broadly, including temporal logic, description logic,
guarded fragments, conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will feature a
number of invited talks by leading scientists, research presentations
aimed at highlighting new developments, and submissions of
system demonstrations.

We strongly encourage young researchers and students to submit papers and posters, especially for experimental and prototypical software tools
which are related to modal logics.

More information about the previous editions can be found at

                       http://m4m.loria.fr/

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three
categories.
