                       FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
      International Workshop on Hybrid Logic 2007 (HyLo 2007)
                        6 - 10 August, 2007
                       organized as part of
                   the European Summer School on
                  Logic, Language and Information
           ESSLLI 2007 https://www.cs.tcd.ie/esslli2007
                   6 - 17 August, 2007 in Dublin

Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic allowing direct reference to 
worlds/times/states. It is easy to justify interest in hybrid logic on 
the grounds of applications as the additional expressive power is very 
useful. In addition, hybrid-logical machinery improves the behaviour of 
the underlying modal formalism. For example, it becomes considerably 
simpler to formulate modal proof systems, and one can prove completeness 
and interpolation results of a generality that is not available in 
orthodox modal logic.

The topic of the HyLo workshop of 2007 is not only standard 
hybrid-logical machinery like nominals, satisfaction operators, and the 
downarrow binder, but generally extensions of modal logic that increase 
its expressive power.

The workshop HyLo 2007 will be relevant to a wide range of people, 
including those interested in description logic, feature logic, applied 
modal logics, temporal logic, and labelled deduction. The workshop 
continues a series of previous workshops on hybrid logic, most recently 
the LICS-affiliated HyLo 2006 (http://hylomol.ruc.dk/HyLo2006/). The 
workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD students and 
researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues and 
researchers who work in the broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.

For more general background on hybrid logic, and many of the key papers, 
see the Hybrid Logics homepage (http://hylo.loria.fr/).


We invite the contribution of papers reporting new work from
researchers interested in hybrid logic. Details about the submission 
procedure will be announced in the second call for papers. The accepted 
papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by ESSLLI. One 
author for each accepted paper must attend the workshop in order to 
present the paper. It is planned to publish revised versions of the 
accepted papers in a special issue of Journal of Logic, Language and 


The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants. 
It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive 
days in the first week of ESSLLI. There will be 2 or 3 slots for paper 
presentation and discussion per session. On the first day the workshop 
organizers will give an introduction to the topic.

Deadline for submissions: March 8, 2007
Notification of acceptance: April 21, 2007
Preliminary programme: April 24, 2007

All workshop participants including the presenters will be required to 
register for ESSLLI. The registration fee for authors presenting a paper 
will correspond to the early student/workshop speaker registration fee. 
Moreover, a number of additional fee waiver grants will be made 
available by the ESSLLI local organizing committee on a competitive 
basis and workshop participants are eligible to apply for those. There 
will be no reimbursement for travel costs and accommodation. Workshop 
speakers who have difficulty in finding funding should contact the local 
organizing committee to ask for the possibilities for a grant.
