PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS The 9th International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning, IJCAR 2018 Oxford, UK, July 14-17, 2018. http://www.ijcar2018.org/ Part of The Federated Logic Conference, FLoC 2018, Oxford, UK, July 6-19, 2018. http://www.floc2018.org/ -----------------------
IJCAR is the premier international joint conference on all topics in automated reasoning. The IJCAR technical program will consist of presentations of high-quality original research papers, system descriptions, and invited talks.
IJCAR 2018 takes place as part of FLoC 2018 and is the merger of leading events in automated reasoning:
- CADE (Conference on Automated Deduction),
- FroCoS (Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems) and
- TABLEAUX (Conference on Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods)
IJCAR 2018 invites submissions related to all aspects of automated reasoning, including foundations, implementations, and applications. Original research papers and descriptions of working automated deduction systems are solicited.
IJCAR topics include the following ones:
Logics of interest include: propositional, first-order, classical, equational, higher-order, non-classical, constructive, modal, temporal, many-valued, substructural, description, type theory, etc.
Methods of interest include: tableaux, sequent calculi, resolution, model-elimination, inverse method, paramodulation, term rewriting, induction, unification, constraint solving, decision procedures, model generation, model checking, semantic guidance, interactive theorem proving, logical frameworks, AI-related methods for deductive systems, proof presentation, automated theorem provers, combination of decision procedures, SAT and SMT solving, etc.
Applications of interest include: verification, formal methods, program analysis and synthesis, computer mathematics, declarative programming, deductive databases, knowledge representation, etc.
We welcome papers combining automated-reasoning formalisms & techniques and with those from other areas of CS and mathematics –including, e.g., computer algebra, machine learning, formal languages, formal verification, termination. In particular, high-quality conference papers on the topics of the IJCAR 2018 affiliated workshops are welcome.
The proceedings of IJCAR 2018 will be published by Springer in the LNAI/LNCS series (www.springer.com/lncs).
Submission is electronic, through https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ijcar2018.
Authors are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX and the Springer “llncs” format, which can be obtained from http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
We solicit two categories of submissions:
Submissions, not exceeding sixteen (16) pages including bibliography, should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. For papers reporting experimental results, authors are strongly encouraged to make their data and software available with their submission for reproducibility. The PC will take availability of software and data into account when evaluating submissions. Submissions reporting on case studies in an industrial context are strongly invited, and should describe details, weaknesses and strength in sufficient depth. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not allowed.
Submissions, not exceeding eight (8) pages including bibliography, should describe the implemented tool and its novel features. One author is expected to be able to perform a demonstration on demand to accompany a tool presentation. Papers describing tools that have already been presented in other conferences before will be accepted only if significant and clear enhancements to the tool are reported and implemented.
Best paper award:
IJCAR 2018 will recognize the most outstanding submission with a best paper award at the conference.
Invited Speakers will be announced later on.
Important dates (provisional):
Abstract submission: January 22nd 2018 Paper submission: January 29th 2018 Notification: March 29th, 2018 Final version of papers due: April 23rd, 2018 IJCAR Conference: July 14-17th, 2018 FLoC Conference: July 6-19th, 2018
IMPORTANT NOTICE: due to very strict FLoC constraints, deadlines are SHARP!
Student travel awards:
Woody Bledsoe Travel Awards will be available to support selected students in attending the conference.
