      FTP'2003 workshop             September 14-17, 2005

   The series of FTP workshops is intended to focus on First-Order
   Theorem Proving as a core theme of Automated Deduction, and to 
   provide a forum for presentation of recent work and discussion 
   of research in progress.
   The workshop welcomes original contributions on:
   * theorem proving in first-order classical, many-valued, and modal
     logics, including:
     - resolution,
     - equational reasoning,
     - term rewriting,
     - model construction,
     - constraint reasoning,
     - unification,
     - description logics,
     - propositional logic,
     - specialized decision procedures,
   * strategies and complexity of theorem proving procedures,
   * applications of first-order theorem provers, for example to:
     - verification,
     - artificial intelligence,
     - mathematics,
     - education.
   The previous international workshops on First-Order Theorem Proving
   were held at Schloss Hagenberg (Austria, 1997), Vienna (Austria,
   1998), St Andrews (Scotland, 2000), Valencia (Spain, 2003).  
   In 2001 and 2004, FTP was part of the IJCAR Conferences, held in 
   Siena (Italy) and Cork (Ireland), respectively.

Paper Submissions:
   Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:
   * Extended abstracts of 8-10 pages, describing original results not
     published elsewhere.
   * System descriptions of 3-5 pages, describing new systems or
     significant upgrades of existing ones, especially including
     experiments; systems will have to be freely available online.
   * Position papers of 2 pages, describing the authors' research
     interests in the field, work in progress, or future directions of
   Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX and the standard article
   class/style file (10pt or 11pt).  The first page should contain the
   title, the authors' names, e-mail and postal addresses.
   Papers should be sent as a Postscript or PDF file to:
			ftp2005 @ uni-koblenz.de
   Papers should be received by May 27, 2005.

   All papers will be refereed by the program committee, and will be
   evaluated on their significance, technical merit, and relevance to
   the workshop.

   Accepted submissions (except position papers) will be published as 
   a technical report of Koblenz University and will be available
   electronically before the workshop.
   As for the previous editions of FTP, a special issue of a journal
   is planned after the workshop.  The submission will be open to
   papers on First-Order Theorem Proving.
