Meeting Description:

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 Seventeenth WoLLIC will be held in Brasília, Brazil,
from July 6th to 9th, 2010.

Call for Papers

Special Event 2010 will mark the 50-th anniversary of the first publication of
Paul Halmos' classic book Naïve Set Theory by Springer Verlag. WoLLIC will
celebrate this by screening the documentary about Paul Halmos which was directed
by George Csicsery: "I want to be a mathematician. A conversation with Paul
Halmos" http://zalafilms.com/films/halmos.html

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The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for publication in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 the WoLLIC 2010 EasyChair
website. (Please go to http://wollic.org/wollic2010/instructions.html for
instructions.) A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by
February 28, and the full paper by March 7 (firm date). Notifications are
expected by April 12, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 3
(firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2010, including both invited and contributed papers,
will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in Springer's LNCS
series (TBC). 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 2010 issue of a scientific journal
(soon to be announced).
