   This conference is the 18th in a series of international meetings on
   Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods.

   In July 2009, the conference will be held in Oslo, Norway.  The
   conference proceedings will be published in the LNAI series as in
   the previous editions of the conference.

   See http://tableaux09.ifi.uio.no/ for more information on TABLEAUX
   2009, and http://i12www.ira.uka.de/TABLEAUX for information about
   the TABLEAUX conference series.

   Tableaux 2009 will be collocated with FTP 2009, the workshop on
   First-Order Theorem Proving, see


   Tableau methods are a convenient formalism for automating deduction
   in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic. Areas
   of application include verification of software and computer
   systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
   required inference engines, and system diagnosis. The conference
   brings together researchers interested in all aspects - theoretical
   foundations, implementation techniques, systems development and
   applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with tableaux and
   related methods.

   Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

     * analytic tableaux for various logics (theory and applications)
     * related techniques and concepts, e.g., model checking and BDDs
     * related methods (model elimination, sequent calculi,
       connection method, ...)
     * new calculi and methods for theorem proving in classical and
       non-classical logics (modal, description, intuitionistic, linear,
       temporal, many-valued...)
     * systems, tools, implementations and applications.

   As in previous years, TABLEAUX 2009 puts a special emphasis on
   applications. Papers describing applications of tableaux and related
   methods in areas such as hardware and software verification,
   semantic technologies, knowledge engineering, etc. are particularly

   One or more tutorials will be part of the conference program.


   The conference will include contributed papers, tutorials, system
   descriptions, position papers and invited lectures. Submissions are
   invited in four categories:

     A  Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or experimental
                         research, up to 15 pages)
     B  System descriptions (up to 5 pages)
     C  Position papers and brief reports on work in progress
     D  Tutorials in all areas of analytic tableaux and related methods
        from academic research to applications (proposals up to 5 pages)

   Submissions in categories A and B will be reviewed by peers,
   typically members of the program committee. They must be unpublished
   and not submitted for publication elsewhere.  For category B
   submissions a working implementation must exist and be available to
   the referees.  After the notification, there will be a rebuttal
   phase of three days during which the authors of rejected papers will
   have the opportunity to respond to the reviews.  Accepted papers in
   these categories will be published in the conference proceedings.

   Submissions in category C will be reviewed by members of the program
   committee and a collection of the accepted papers in this category
   will be published as a Technical Report of the University of Oslo.

   The deadline for the submission of tutorial (Category D) and
   workshop proposals is Friday, 9. Jan 2009.  Check information on the
   web page for details.

   Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the


   Apart from significantly reduced conference fees, students will have
   access to budget accommodation at a rate of about 100 EUR for the
   whole week.  If necessary, we will be able to provide further
   financing help.  Lack of funds should not prevent you from
   submitting a paper to Tableaux 2009!
