                      CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
        6th Workshop on METHODS FOR MODALITIES (M4M-6)
                      Copenhagen, Denmark
                      November 12-14, 2009
    NOTE: The deadline for early registration is October 19

The workshop METHODS FOR MODALITIES (M4M) aims to bring together
researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods
and tools based on modal logics. Here the term "modal logics" is
conceived broadly, including temporal logic, description logic,
guarded fragments, conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will feature
a number of invited talks by leading scientists, research
presentations aimed at highlighting new developments, and submissions
of system demonstrations.

Autumn School
M4M-6 will be preceded by a two-day mini-course called "Autumn School
on Modal Logic" aimed at preparing PhD students and other researchers
for participation in the workshop. The autumn school will be taught
by Carlos Areces, Patrick Blackburn, Valentin Goranko, Renate Schmidt,
and Carsten Schürmann. Consult the autumn school home page for further


The autumn school is associated with the FIRST research school
