The "7th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation"
(WoLLIC'2000), the seventh version of a series of workshops which started
in 1994 with the aim of fostering interdisciplinary research in pure and
applied logic, will be held in Natal, Brazil, from August 15th to 18th 2000.
Contributions are invited in the form of short papers (10 A4 10pt pages) in
all areas related to logic, language, information and computation, including:
pure logical systems, proof theory, model theory, algebraic logic, type theory,
category theory, constructive mathematics, lambda and combinatorial calculi,
program logic and program semantics, logics and models of concurrency,
logic and complexity theory, nonclassical logics, nonmonotonic logic,
logic and language, discourse representation, logic and artificial
intelligence, automated deduction, foundations of logic programming,
logic and computation, and logic engineering.
The 7th WoLLIC'2000 has the scientific sponsorship of the Association
for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics
(IGPL), the European Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI),
the Sociedade Brasileira de Computacao (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira
de Logica (SBL).
Natal is the capital and largest city of Rio Grande do Norte, a sun shiny
land of beaches, dunes, coconut trees, located in north-east coast of Brazil.
There, the summer takes all year long (sun shines more than 300 days per
year), and the heat is softened by a constant breeze. Along the 400-kilometer
(250-mile) coast line, calm beaches with reefs forming natural pools altern
with good surfing spots, almost untouched places full of sand dunes and

detail to allow the programme committee to assess the merits of the work.
Papers should start with a brief statement of the issues, a summary of the
main results, and a statement of their significance and relevance to the
workshop. References and comparisons with related work is also expected.
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Results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere,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. One author of each
accepted paper will be expected to attend the conference in order to present
it. Authors will be notified of acceptance by JUNE 9th, 2000, and final
versions will have to be delivered (in LaTeX format) by JUNE 16th, 2000.
The abstracts of the papers will be published in a "Conference Report" section
of the Logic Journal of the IGPL (ISSN 1367-0751) (Oxford Univ Press) as part
of the meeting report. Papers presented at the meeting will be invited for
submission (in full version) to the Logic Journal of the IGPL
