           15th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
                                 (WoLLIC 2008)
                            Heriot-Watt University

      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 Fifteenth WoLLIC will be held in the campus of Heriot-Watt Univ,
      Edinburgh, Scotland, from July 1 to July 4, 2008. 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
      Computacao (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Logica (SBL).

      Research contributions will be presented on all pertinent subjects,
      with particular emphasis in cross-disciplinary topics: 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
      logics of programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects of
      information organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection.
