LICS'98: 2nd Call for Papers (text & LaTeX)
A postscript version of the call for papers is available via the LICS
web page at http://www.bell-labs.com/topic/conferences/lics.
Thirteenth Annual IEEE Symposium on
LOGIC IN COMPUTER SCIENCE
June 21 - 24, 1998, Indianapolis, Indiana
CALL FOR PAPERS
The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and
practical topics in computer science that relate to logic in a broad
sense. The 1998 program will consist of invited and contributed talks
and two tutorials. It will be preceded by workshops on Probabilistic
Methods in Verification and Real Number Computation, and followed by
workshops on Formal Methods & Security Protocols and Logic &
Diagrammatical Information.
Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest for submissions
include: abstract data types, automated deduction, bounded arithmetic,
categorical models and logics, concurrency, constraint programming,
constructive mathematics, database theory, domain theory, finite model
theory, formal methods, hybrid systems, logics of knowledge, lambda
and combinatory calculi, linear logic, logical aspects of
computational complexity, logics in artificial intelligence, logics of
programs, logic programming, modal and temporal logics, model
checking, logical aspects of protocol security, quantum logics,
rewriting, semantics, software specification, type systems, universal
algebra, and verification.
Paper submission: An extended abstract (not a full paper) should be
mailed electronically to the program chair, pratt@lics98.stanford.edu,
to be received by December 9, 1997. This deadline is firm. Authors
will be notified of acceptance or rejection by February 17, 1998.
Accepted papers in camera-ready form will be due by April 4, 1998.
Your submission may not exceed 10 typed pages in no less than 11-point
font. It should be formatted as a PostScript file in USLetter size,
and be accompanied by a separately emailed cover letter in plain ascii
text.
Submissions must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow
the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. Submissions
should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the
main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and
relevance to the conference, all phrased for the non-specialist.
References and comparisons with related work should be included.
Technical development directed to the specialist should follow.
Results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops.
All authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign copyright
release forms. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to
attend the conference in order to present it. Further submission
information may be found at http://lics98.stanford.edu.
IMPORTANT DATES:
Submission deadline: December 9, 1997
Notification: February 17, 1998
Final papers due: April 4, 1998
Conference: June 21 - 24, 1998
Kleene Award for Best Student Paper: An award of $500, in honor of the
late S.C. Kleene, may be given for the best student paper, as judged by
the program committee. Eligibility requires all authors to be
full-time students at the date of submission; this must be noted on
the submission letter.
Sponsors: IEEE Technical Committee on Mathematical Foundations of
Computing in cooperation with the Association for Symbolic Logic, the
European Association for Theoretical Computer Science, and the
Association for Computing Machinery. The 1998 symposium is hosted by
Indiana University at Bloomington, and will take place at the Indiana
University Conference Center in Indianapolis.
