     This conference is the 20th in a series of international meetings on
     Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods.

     In July 2011, the conference will be held in Bern, Switzerland.  The
     conference proceedings will be published in the Springer LNAI series as
     in the previous editions of the conference.

     See http://www.tableaux11.unibe.ch/ for more information on TABLEAUX
     2011, and http://i12www.ira.uka.de/TABLEAUX for information about
     the TABLEAUX conference series.


     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 2011 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  Short papers reporting work in progress (up to 5 pages)
       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.  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 Bern.

     Tutorial submissions (Category D) may be at introductory,
     intermediate, or advanced levels. Novel topics and topics of broad
     interest are preferred. The submission should include the title, the
     author, the topic of the tutorial, its level, its relevance to
     conference topics, and a description of the interest and the
     scientific contents of the proposed tutorial. Tutorial proposals
     will be reviewed by members of the program committee.  Note that the
     deadline for tutorial proposals is  Monday, 10. Jan 2011.

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


     TABLEAUX 2011 launches a Call for Workshop Proposal on specialised
     subjects in the range of the conference topics. We can accept up to
     three proposals.  The proposals are reviewed by members of the PC
     committee. The purpose of a workshop is to offer an opportunity of
     presenting novel ideas, ongoing research, and to discuss the state
     of the art of an area in a less formal but more focused way than the
     conference itself. It is also a good opportunity for young
     researchers to present their own work and to obtain feedback. The
     format of a workshop is left to the the organizers, but it is
     expected to contain significant time for discussion. The intended
     schedule is for one-day workshops.

     To submit a workshop proposal, please send a description of one or
     two pages to the PC chairs by Monday, 10. Jan 2011.
