		Twenty-Fourth Annual IEEE Symposium on

        August  11th - 14th, 2009, Los Angeles, California, USA

Following a now established tradition, there will be short talk (5-10
minutes) sessions during LICS 2009. These are intended for
descriptions of work in progress, student projects, trailers for
longer presentations at one of the affiliated workshops, and relevant
research being or to be published elsewhere; other brief
communications may be acceptable.

Talks can be on any topic related to logic in computer
science. 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.

Submissions for these presentations, in the form of short abstracts
(1 or 2 pages long), should be entered at the LICS 2009 submission
site following the instructions at


Abstracts for proposed short talks must be in pdf format and should be
1-2 pages long.
