                           FTP 2009

        International Workshop on First-Order Theorem Proving
                    Oslo, Norway, July 6-7 2009


FTP 2009 is the seventh in a series of workshops intended to focus
effort on First-Order Theorem Proving as a core theme of Automated
Deduction, and to provide a forum for presentation of recent work
and discussion of research in progress.

The workshop welcomes original contributions on theorem proving
in first-order classical, many-valued, modal and description logics,
including (but not restricted to):

   * theorem proving in first-order classical, many-valued,
     and modal logics, including:
       -  satisfiability in propositional logic,
       - satisfiability modulo theories,
       - specialized decision procedures,
       - constraint reasoning,
       - equational reasoning,
       - term rewriting,
       - resolution
       - paramodulation/superposition;

   * strategies and complexity of theorem proving procedures;
   * implementation techniques
   * applications of first-order theorem provers to:
       - program verification,
       - model checking,
       - artificial intelligence,
       - mathematics,
       - computational linguistics.

Previous editions of FTP took place in
Schloss Hagenberg, Austria (1997); Vienna, Austria (1998);
St Andrews, Scotland (2000); Valencia, Spain (2003);
Koblenz, Germany (2005); and Liverpool, UK (2007).

workshops, please see the FTP Workshop Series web page

Invited speakers:
Silvio Ghilardi, Universita degli Studi di Milano, Italy
Peter Jeavons,   Oxford University Computing Laboratory, UK (with Tableaux)

Paper Submissions

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:

   * Extended abstracts of up to 15 pages describing original results.

   * Position papers of up to 10 pages describing work in progress,
     or future directions of research.

   * System descriptions of up to 10 pages, describing new systems or
     significant upgrades of existing ones, especially including
     experiments; sources and manuals of systems will have to be freely
     available online.

   * Presentation-only papers, describing work recently published or
     submitted (no page limit). These will not be included in the
     proceedings, but pre-prints or post-prints can be made available
     to participants. We see this as a way to provide additional
     access to important developments that FTP Workshop attendees
     may be unaware of.

Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX and the standard lncs article
class/style file. The first page should contain the title, the
authors' names, e-mail and postal addresses.

Submissions should be made via Easychair at the following address:

Accepted submissions will be published as a technical report
of the University of Oslo and will be distributed at the workshop.
They will also be available on the web. As for the previous editions
of FTP, a journal special issue is planned after the workshop.
The submission will be open to papers on First-Order Theorem Proving.
