Call for Papers
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 Fourteenth Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation (WoLLIC'2007) will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from July 2-5, 2007, in conjunction with the 27th Brazilian Computer Society Conference. It is sponsored by the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).
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;
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.
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. They must not exceed 10
pages (in font 10 or higher), 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 The paper's main results must not
be published or submitted for publication in refereed venues, including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 http://www.cin.ufpe.br/~wollic/wollic2007/instructions.html
A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by February
23, and the full submission by March 2 (firm date). Notifications are
expected by April 12, and final papers for the proceedings will be due
by April 26 (firm date).
The proceedings of WoLLIC'2007, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science. 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'2007 issue of the journal Information and Computation.
