                         CALL FOR PAPERS
         7th Workshop on METHODS FOR MODALITIES (M4M-7)
                       Osuna, Spain
                       November 9-12, 2011

The 7th Methods for Modalities workshop will take place at a University
of Sevilla college in Osuna, a provincial town in between Malaga and
Sevilla. Confirmed invited speakers for the workshop are:

     * Melving Fitting, City University of New York
     * David Gabelaia, Academy of Sciences, Georgia
     * Andreas Herzig, IRIT, Toulouse
     * Thomas Schwentick, Technical University of Dortmund

The M4M workshop will be preceded by a one-day course for doctorate
students and interested researchers, on 9 November 2011. The PhD school
will be organized at the University of Malaga. The lecturers at the
PhD school will be:

     * Alexandru Baltag, Oxford University, and Sonja Smets, University
       of Groningen
     * Yde Venema, University of Amsterdam

Part of M4M will be a half-day workshop LAMAS (Logical Aspects of
Multi-Agent Systems), see http://icr.uni.lu/lamas2011/ and the M4M page.

The proceedings of M4M Osuna will appear as a volume in the
Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) series.

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.

We strongly encourage young researchers and students to submit papers,
also about experimental and prototypical software tools which are
related to modal logics.

Paper Submissions
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three categories.

- Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original research.

- System descriptions of up to 12 pages, describing new systems or
significant upgrades of existing ones.

- Presentation-only papers, describing work recently published or
submitted (with a 15 page limit). These will not be included in the
proceedings, but pre-prints or post-prints can be made available to

Papers should be prepared in ENTCS proceedings style, and should be
submitted as .pdf. Submissions should be made via EasyChair at the
