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 twenty-fourth WoLLIC will be held at
the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary
College,  London, UK, from July 18th to 21st, 2017. 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), the European Association for Theoretical Computer
Science (EATCS), the European Association for Computer Science Logic
(EACSL), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade
Brasileira de Lógica (SBL). The workshop is held in cooperation with ACM
Special Interest in Computational Logic (SIGLOG).

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; proof mining, type
theory, effective learnability; 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; foundations of
mathematics; philosophy of mathematics; philosophical logic. 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. Articles should be written in the LaTeX
format of LNCS by Springer (see authors instructions at They must
not exceed 12 pages, 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 The paper's main results must not be published or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 2017 EasyChair website. (Please go to for instructions.) A title
and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by Mar 14, 2017, and the
full paper by Mar 21, 2017 (firm date). Notifications are expected by Apr
22, 2017, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 6, 2017
(firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2017, 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 2017
issue of a scientific journal (to be confirmed).
