CALL FOR PAPERS: 26th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic (CSL 2017) August 20-24, 2017, Stockholm, SWEDEN

Computer Science Logic (CSL) is the annual conference of the European 
Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL). It is an interdisciplinary 
conference, spanning across both basic and application oriented research in 
mathematical logic and computer science and is intended for computer scientists 
whose research involves logic, as well as for logicians working on issues 
essential for computer science.

CSL 2017 is the 26th EACSL annual conference. It will be co-organised by 
Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and hosted by 
Stockholm University. CSL 2017 will be co-located with, and immediately 
preceded by, the Logic Colloquium 2017 (LC 2017). There will be a joint session 
of CSL 2017 and LC 2017 in the morning of August 20, as well as CSL-affiliated 
workshops during August 25-26.

Abstract submission for contributed papers:     March 24, 2017

consisting of four plenary highlight talks, offered by speakers from both 
   ? Presentation of the Alonzo Church award for Outstanding Contributions to 
Logic and Computation,
   ? Presentation of the EACSL Ackermann award for Outstanding Dissertation on 
Logic in Computer Science,
   ? CSL-affiliated workshops, to be held as CSL co-located events:
      ? Workshop on Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems LAMAS 2017 (August 
      ? Workshop on Logic and Automata Theory (in memory of Zoltan Ezik) (August 
      ? Workshop on Logic and Algorithms in Computational Linguistics 
LACompLing'17 (August  18-19)

The CSL 2017 conference proceedings will be published in Leibniz International 
Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs).

Authors are invited to submit contributed papers of no more than 15 pages in 
LIPIcs style (including references), presenting not previously published  work, 
fitting the scope of the conference.

The submission of contributed papers will be in two stages:
  * abstracts, due by March 24, 2017 (AoE);
  * full papers, due by March 31, 2017 (AoE).

The submissions must be done via the EasyChair page for the conference:

Submitted papers must be in English and must provide sufficient detail to allow 
the Programme Committee to assess the merits of the paper. Full proofs may 
appear in a clearly marked technical appendix which will be read at the 
reviewers' discretion.  Authors are strongly encouraged to include a well 
written introduction which is directed at all members of the PC.

Papers may not be submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed 
proceedings. The PC chairs should be informed of closely related work submitted 
to a conference or a journal. Papers authored or co-authored by members of the 
PC are not allowed.

In addition, there will be an opportunity for short oral presentations at the 
conference. Abstracts for such oral presentations must be submitted through the 
Easychair submission webpage, under the category ``short presentations'', by 
June 4, 2017. They will not be included in the proceedings.
