Call for Papers
8th International Symposium on FRONTIERS OF COMBINING SYSTEMS
Saarbruecken, Germany, October 5 - 7, 2011
The submission and notification deadlines have been extended as follows:
Abstract submission deadline: May 2, 2011
Paper submission deadline: May 9, 2011
Notification of acceptance decisions: June 16, 2011
Camera-ready version of papers due: July 18, 2011
In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation,
program development and verification, artificial intelligence,
knowledge representation, and automated reasoning, there is an
obvious need for using specialized formalisms and inference mechanisms
for special tasks. To be usable in practice, these specialized systems
must be combined with each other, and must be integrated into general
purpose systems. This has lead in many research areas to the development
of general techniques and methods for the combination and integration
of special, formally defined systems, as well as for the analysis and
modularization of complex systems.
The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS)
traditionally focuses on this type of research questions and activities
and aims at promoting progress in the field.
Like its predecessors, FroCoS'11 seeks to offer a common forum for
research activities in the general area of combination, modularization
and integration of systems, with emphasis on logic-based ones, and of
their practical use.
Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* combinations of logics such as combined predicate, temporal,
modal, or epistemic logics;
* combinations and modularity in ontologies;
* combination of decision procedures, of satisfiability procedures,
and of constraint solving techniques;
* combinations and modularity in term rewriting;
* integration of equational and other theories into deductive systems;
* combination of deduction systems and computer algebra;
* integration of data structures into constraint logic programming and
* hybrid methods for deduction, resolution and constraint propagation;
* hybrid systems in knowledge representation and natural language
* combined logics for distributed and multi-agent systems;
* logical aspects of combining and modularizing programs and
The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing
original work, written and to be presented in English, not
substantially overlapping with published or simultaneously submitted
work to a journal or conference with archival proceedings.
Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas,
clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation.
All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by three or
more members of the program committee. For each accepted paper, at least
one author is required to attend the symposium to present the work.
Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be
submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system:
The page limit is 16 pages.
Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract
a week before the paper submission deadline (i.e. on May 2, 2011).
Further information about paper submissions is available at the
FroCoS'11 web page.
The proceedings of FroCoS'11 will be published by Springer-Verlag in
the LNAI/LNCS series.
