Call for Papers
13th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
(WoLLIC'2006)  CSLI, Stanford, CA, USA
July 18-21, 2006
Scientific Co-Sponsorship

"Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science" (Elsevier))

The "13th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation"
(WoLLIC'2006), the twelfth version of a series of workshops
(http://www.cin.ufpe.br/~wollic) which started in 1994 with the aim of
fostering interdisciplinary research in pure and applied logic,
will be held at CSLI, Stanford, CA, USA, July 18-21, 2006.
Contributions are invited in the form of short papers (12 10pt pages) in
all areas related to logic, language, information and computation, including:
. context and situation theory
. formal semantics of natural language
. information update and belief revision; agent systems
. logic, arithmetic and complexity
. logic and databases
. logic and game theory
. logic and verification
. logic programming and algebraic semantics
. logical grammars
. model theory, descriptive complexity
. proof complexity
. proof theory, lambda calculus, categorical logic
. real computation, algebraic complexity
. set theory
. zero-knowledge proofs, probabilistic proofs, randomized computation

The 13th WoLLIC'2006 has the scientific sponsorship of 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 Computacao (SBC), and the Sociedade
Brasileira de Logica (SBL).

Papers (up to 12 pages 10pt) must be submitted via the web page
by MARCH 7th, 2006 (NEW DEADLINE!).

Papers must be written in English and give enough detail to allow the
programme committee to assess the merits of the work. Papers should
start with a brief statement of the issues, a summary of the main
results, and a statement of their significance and relevance to the
workshop. References and comparisons with related work is also expected.
Technical development directed to the specialist should follow.
Results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere,
including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops. One author of
each accepted paper will be expected to attend the conference in order
to present it. Authors will be notified of acceptance by APRIL 21st, 2006,
and final versions for the proceedings will have to be delivered
(in LaTeX format) by MAY 12th, 2006. The abstracts of the papers will be
published in a "Conference Report" section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL
(ISSN 1367-0751) (Oxford Univ Press, web page: http://www.oup.co.uk/igpl)
as part of the meeting report. The proceedings will appear as a volume in
the Elsevier series "Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science"
(http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/entcs). Full version of papers will be
refereed again for publication in a special issue of the Annals of Pure
and Applied Logic (TO BE CONFIRMED).
ASL sponsorship of WoLLIC'2006 will permit ASL student members to
apply for modest travel grants for ASL-sponsored meetings that take
place in 2006. Applications and recommendations should be received at
least three months prior to the meeting at the ASL Business Office:
ASL, Box 742, Vassar College, 124 Raymond Avenue, Poughkeepsie,
New York 12604, USA; Fax: 1-845-437-7830; email: asl at vassar.edu.
Decisions will be communicated at least two months prior to the meeting.
