LPAR 2013 : Logic for Programming Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning
Conference Series : Logic Programming and Automated Reasoning
Call For Papers
The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 19th LPAR will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Logic is a fundamental organizing principle in nearly all areas in Computer Science. It runs a multifaceted gamut from the foundational to the applied. At one extreme, it underlies computability and complexity theory and the formal semantics of programming languages. At the other extreme, it drives billions of gates every day in the digital circuits of processors of all kinds. Logic is in itself a powerful programming paradigm, but it is also the quintessential specification language for anything ranging from real-time critical systems to networked infrastructures. Logical techniques link implementation and specification through formal methods such as automated theorem proving and model checking. Logic is also the stuff of knowledge representation and artificial intelligence. Because of its ubiquity, logic has acquired a central role in Computer Science education.
New results in the fields of computational logic and applications are welcome. Also welcome are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories and practices.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Abduction and interpolation methods
Foundations of security
Implementations of logic
Interactive theorem proving
Knowledge representation and reasoning
Logic and computational complexity
Logic and databases
Logic and games
Logic and machine learning
Logic and the web
Logic and types
Logic in artificial intelligence
Logic of distributed systems
Logical aspects of concurrency
Logical foundations of programming
Modal and temporal logics
Ontologies and large knowledge bases
Probabilistic and fuzzy reasoning
Satisfiability modulo theories
Specification using logic
Submissions of two kinds are welcome:
Regular papers that describe solid new research results. They can be up to 15 pages long in LNCS style, including figures and references, but excluding appendices (that reviewers are not required to read).
Experimental and tool papers that describe implementations of systems, report experiments with implemented systems, or compare implemented systems. They can be up to 8 pages long in the LNCS style.
Both types of papers can be electronically submitted in PDF via EasyChar.
Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract a week before the paper submission deadline (see below).
Authors of accepted papers are required to ensure that at least one of them will be present at the conference.
