INVITED SPEAKERS (partial list)

Franz Baader (TU Dresden)
Serikjan Badaev (Kazakh State National University
Sergei Goncharov (Novosibirsk State University)
Thomas Wilke (Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel)


Submitted papers must be original and not submitted concurrently for
publication to a journal or to another conference.

Both "regular" papers and "experimental" papers are welcome. The first
category is intended to contain new results, the second one to describe
implementations of systems, to report experiments with implemented systems, 
or to compare implemented systems.

Submitted "regular" papers should not be longer than 15 proceedings
pages, that is pages formatted according to Springer's LNCS Authors'
Instructions.  If proofs do not fit in 15 pages, add an appendix with
proofs.  Submitted "experimental" papers should not be longer than 10 
proceedings pages. 

Papers should be submitted in the postscript or pdf format (no encoding) 
through the submission page http://www.lpar.net/2003/submission.cgi.

All questions related to submission should be sent to the program chairs.


  Submission of abstract: April 28th
  Submission of paper: May 5th
  Notification: June 16th
  Final version: July 7th
  Conference: September 22-26th


The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNAI
series and available at the conference.
