CFP: 2008 Workshop on Automated Reasoning
CALL FOR PAPERS 2008 Workshop on Automated Reasoning Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice 30th-31st July 2008 University of Birmingham In conjuncution with Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics http://events.cs.bham.ac.uk/cicm08/workshops/arw/ *** 2-side Extended Abstracts Due: 13th June 2008 *** ================================================================ Invited Speakers ---------------- Professor Steve Linton University of St. Andrews Title TBA Dr Andrew Ireland Heriot-Watt University Cooperative Reasoning for Automatic Software Verification ================================================================ Topics ------ The workshop will cover the full breadth and diversity of automated reasoning and will include topics such as: Theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics Reasoning systems and mechanisms: Description logics Equational reasoning, unification Induction Constraint Satisfaction Combining reasoning systems Specialised decision procedures Formal methods in software analysis: Verification Formal Modelling Non-classical inference: Non-monotonic reasoning, abduction Intuitionistic reasoning Logic-based knowledge representation: Ontology specification, Domain specific reasoning (spatial, temporal, epistemic etc.) Reasoning for agents (or about agents) Interactive theorem proving Implementation issues and empirical results Applications of automated reasoning ================================================================ Submissions ----------- We invite interested persons to submit a camera-ready, two-page extended abstract about recent work or work in progress, or a system description. Anyone wishing to attend but not interested in presenting should send a shorter position statement (1/2 - 1 page). Submissions should be sent in in either Postscript or PDF format by email to the workshop organisers at: L.A.Dennis@liverpool.ac.uk Please use the LaTeX style file provided on the workshop web page: http://events.cs.bham.ac.uk/cicm08/custom/arw/arw08_latex.tar Each submission should include the names and complete addresses (including email) of all authors. Correspondence will be sent to the first author, unless otherwise indicated. The main objective of the abstracts is to spread information about recent work in our community, and we expect to accept most in-topic submissions, but we may ask for revisions. Abstracts will be published in informal workshop notes and be made available on the internet. ================================================================ Presentations ------------- Each workshop attendee will be allocated a 5 minute slot (or a 10 minute slot, depending on time constraints), for a short talk to introduce their research. Each attendee will also be allocated space in a poster session, where they can further present and discuss their work. Please prepare posters for the event. ================================================================ Studentships ------------ A limited number of studentships will be available to fund travel and accomodation expenses. Applications for studentships will require written proof of student status, and must be received by the deadline below. Payment is made by cheque during or after the symposium. To indicate your interest, please send a short email to Louise Dennis (L.A.Dennis@liverpool.ac.uk) any time before 1st June 2008. ================================================================ ARW Meal -------- We will organise a workshop meal. Details coming soon... ================================================================ Organisation ------------ The workshop is being organised in conjunction with the Conferences on Intelligent Computer Mathematics (CICM'08) at the University of Birmingham: http://events.cs.bham.ac.uk/cicm08/index.php ================================================================ Program Committee ----------------- Clare Dixon, Chair (University of Liverpool) Jacques Fleuriot Secretary/Treasurer (University of Edinburgh) Brandon Bennett (University of Leeds) Alexander Bolotov (University of Westminster) Simon Colton (Imperial College London) David Crocker (Escher Technologies) Louise Dennis (University of Liverpool) Roy Dyckhoff (University of St Andrews) Ullrich Hustadt (University of Liverpool) Mateja Jamnik (Univerity of Cambridge) Tom Melham (University of Oxford) Alice Miller (university of Glasgow) Renate Schmidt (University of Manchester) Volker Sorge (University of Birmingham) ================================================================ Important Dates --------------- Applications for Studentships: 6th June 2008 Submission of 2-side extended abstracts: 13th June 2008 Notification of decision: 20th June 2008 Camera ready copies required by: 30th June 2008 Automated Reasoning Workshop: 30th and 31st July 2008 ================================================================ Contact ------- Please email Louise Dennis (L.A.Dennis@liverpool.ac.uk, Programme Chair) or Volker Sorge (V.Sorge@cs.bham.ac.uk, Local Arrangements) if you have any queries about the 2008 Automated Reasoning Workshop.
