Twenty-fourth Annual IEEE Symposium on
LOGIC IN COMPUTER SCIENCE (LICS 2009)
Call for Papers
August 11--14, 2009,
Los Angeles, California, USA
Colocated with the 16th International
Static Analysis Symposium (SAS 2009),
The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and
practical topics in computer science that relate to logic broadly
construed. We invite submissions on topics that fit under that
rubric. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest for
submissions include: automata theory, automated deduction, categorical
models and logics, concurrency and distributed computation, constraint
programming, constructive mathematics, database theory, domain theory,
finite model theory, formal aspects of program analysis, formal
methods, higher-order logic, hybrid systems, lambda and combinatory
calculi, linear logic, logical aspects of computational complexity,
logical frameworks, logics in artificial intelligence, logics of
programs, logic programming, modal and temporal logics, model
checking, probabilistic systems, process calculi, programming language
semantics, proof theory, reasoning about security, rewriting, type
systems and type theory, and verification. We welcome submissions in
emergent areas, such as bioinformatics and quantum computation, if
they have a substantial connection with logic.

Every extended abstract must be submitted in the IEEE Proceedings
two-column camera-ready format and may be no longer than 10 pages
including reference with a font size of 10pt. The LaTeX style
files are available at http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/amp12/lics09/.
The abstract must be in English and provide sufficient detail to
allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It
should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of
the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and
relevance to the conference and to computer science, all phrased for
the non-specialist. Technical development directed to the specialist
should follow. References and comparisons with related work should
be included. If necessary, detailed proofs of technical results can
be included in a clearly-labeled appendix in the same two-column
format following the 10-page extended abstract or there can be a
pointer to a manuscript on a web site. This material may be read at
the discretion of the program committee. Extended abstracts not
conforming to the above requirements concerning format and length
may be rejected without further consideration.
The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops.
The PC chair should be informed of closely related work submitted to
a conference or journal in advance of submission.
All authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign copyright
release forms. One author of each accepted paper will be expected
to present it at the conference.
LICS 2009 will have a session of short (10 minute) presentations.
This session is intended for descriptions of work in progress,
student projects, and relevant research being published elsewhere;
other brief communications may be acceptable. Submissions for these
presentations, in the form of short abstracts (1 or 2 pages long),
should be entered at the LICS 2009 submission site in a time frame
to be determined.
Kleene Award for Best Student Paper:
An award in honour of the late S. C. Kleene will be given for the
best student paper, as judged by the program committee. Details
concerning eligibility criteria and procedure for consideration for
this award will be posted at the LICS website. The program
committee may decline to make the award or may split it among
The symposium is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on
Mathematical Foundations of Computing in cooperation with the
Association for Symbolic Logic, and the European Association for
Theoretical Computer Science.
