Call for Papers

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 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).

Paper Submission
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 The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for publication in refereed venues, including journals and other scientific meetings.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
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.
