Call for Papers

<http://wollic.org/>WoLLIC is an annual 
international forum on inter-disciplinary 
research involving formal logic, computing and 
programming theory, and natural language and 
reasoning. Each meeting includes invited talks 
and tutorials as well as contributed papers. The 
nineteenth WoLLIC will be held at the University 
of Buenos Aires, Argentina, from September 3rd to 
6th, 2012. It is sponsored by the 
<http://www.aslonline.org/>Association for 
Symbolic Logic (ASL), 
Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the 
<http://www.folli.org/>The Association for Logic, 
Language and Information (FoLLI), the 
<http://www.eatcs.org/>European Association for 
Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the 
<http://www.eacsl.org/>European Association for 
Computer Science Logic (EACSL), the 
<http://www.sbc.org.br/>Sociedade Brasileira de 
Computação (SBC), and the 
<http://www.cle.unicamp.br/sbl/>Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

Paper submission
Contributions are invited on all pertinent 
subjects, with particular interest in 
cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not 
exclusive areas of interest are: foundations of 
computing and programming; novel computation 
models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and 
belief; formal methods in software and hardware 
development; logical approach to natural language 
and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and 
resources; foundational aspects of information 
organization, search, flow, sharing, and 
protection. Proposed contributions should be in 
English, and consist of a scholarly exposition 
accessible to the non-specialist, including 
motivation, background, and comparison with 
related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in 
font 10 or higher), with up to 5 additional pages 
for references and technical appendices. The 
paper's main results must not be published or 
submitted for publication in refereed venues, 
including journals and other scientific meetings. 
It is expected that each accepted paper be 
presented at the meeting by one of its authors. 
Papers must be submitted electronically at the 
WoLLIC 2012 EasyChair website. (Please go to 
for instructions.) A title and single-paragraph 
abstract should be submitted by April 27th, and 
the full paper by May 4th (firm date). 
Notifications are expected by June 8th, and final 
papers for the proceedings will be due by June 15th (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2012, including both 
invited and contributed papers, will be published 
in advance of the meeting as a volume in 
Springer's <http://www.springer.com/lncs>LNCS 
series. In addition, abstracts will be published 
in the Conference Report section of the Logic 
Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions 
will be published as a special post-conference 
WoLLIC 2012 issue of a scientific journal (to be confirmed).
