CFP: IJCAR'08 Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning

http://www.eprover.org/EVENTS/PAAR-2008/paar-2008.html

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

			    PAAR-2008
  IJCAR'08 Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning


		      Deadline: 27 May 2008
     http://www.eprover.org/EVENTS/PAAR-2008/paar-2008.html


GENERAL INFORMATION
  The first Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning
  will be held in August 2008, in Sydney, Australia. PAAR will be
  associated with the 4th International Joint Conference on
  Automated Reasoning (IJCAR-2008).

SCOPE
  PAAR provides a forum for developers of automated reasoning
  tools to discuss and compare different implementation
  techniques, and for users to discuss and communicate their
  applications and requirements. This workshop will bring
  together different groups to concentrate on practical aspects
  of the implementation and application of automated reasoning
  tools. It will allow researchers to present their work in
  progress, and to discuss new implementation techniques and
  applications.

  Topics include but are not limited to:
    o automated reasoning in classical and non-classical logics,
      implementation of provers;
    o automated reasoning tools for all kinds of practical
      problems and applications;
    o practical experiences, case studies, feasibility studies;
    o evaluation of implementation techniques and automated
      reasoning tools;
    o benchmarking approaches;
    o non-standard approaches to automated reasoning,
      non-standard forms of automated reasoning, new applications;
    o implementation techniques, optimisation techniques,
      strategies and heuristics;
    o system descriptions and demos. 

  We are particularly interested in contributions that help the
  community to understand how to build useful and powerful
  reasoning systems in practice, and how to apply existing
  systems to real problems.

SUBMISSIONS
  Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a
  short (2-10 pages) abstract via EasyChair. Submissions will be
  refereed by the program committee, which will select a balanced
  program of high-quality contributions.

  Submissions should be in standard-conforming Postscript or PDF.

  To submit a paper, go to the EasyChair PAAR page 

      http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=paar2008

  and follow the instructions there.  

FINAL VERSIONS 
  The final versions should be prepared in LaTeX using the
  Springer Verlag llncs class. The workshop proceedings will be
  published as a technical report and distributed at the event.

  If quality and quantity of the subissions warrants this, we
  plan to produce a special issue of a recognized journal on the
  topic of the workshop.

IMPORTANT DATES:
  Submission of abstracts: May 27th, 2008
  Notification: June 20th, 2008
  Camera ready versions due: July 7th, 2008
  Workshop: August 10th or 11th, 2008
