                             FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

ALI, the Association for Logic in India, announces the fourth edition of
its biennial International Conference on Logic and its Applications
(ICLA), to be held at the Delhi University, from January 9 to 11, 2011.

ICLA is a forum for bringing together researchers from a wide variety of
fields that formal logic plays a significant role in, along with
mathematicians, philosophers and logicians studying foundations of
formal logic in itself. A special feature of this conference is the
inclusion of studies in systems of logic in the Indian tradition, and
historical research on logic.

As in the earlier events in this series, we shall have eminent logicians
as invited speakers. Pre-conference workshops during Jan 5-8 are also
being planned. Details of these workshops will be posted on the conference
website in due course. Details of the last ICLA (2009) may be found at

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished
research in any area of logic and applications. Articles on mathematical
and philosophical logic, foundations and philosophy of mathematics and
the sciences, history of logic, Indian systems of logic, use of formal
logic in areas of theoretical computer science and artificial
intelligence, or on the relationship between logic and other branches of
knowledge, are welcome.

Submissions must be in English and should provide sufficient detail to
allow the programme committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should
clearly present the context of the problem, summary of the main results
and should contain the technical development directed to the specialist.
Comparison with related work must be included. The submission may not
exceed 12 pages using Springer's LNCS format
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). If
necessary, detailed proofs of technical results can be included in a
clearly marked appendix which may be read at the discretion of the
programme committee. All submissions will be in electronic form and
submitted via easychair submission system. Simultaneous submission to
journals or to other conferences with proceedings is not allowed.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings, which will be made available at
the time of the conference. It is expected that the conference
proceedings will appear as a volume in the FoLLI series of Springer
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence; this will be confirmed soon.
