              Special issue on Hybrid Logic
         DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 31st May 2009

Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic allowing direct reference
to worlds/times/states. It is easy to justify interest in hybrid
logic on the grounds of applications, as the additional expressive
power is very useful.  In addition, hybrid-logical machinery
improves the behaviour of the underlying modal formalism.  For
example, it becomes considerably simpler to formulate modal proof
systems, and one can prove completeness and interpolation results
of a generality that is not available in orthodox modal logic.
But more generally, the topic of this special issue is not only 
standard hybrid-logical machinery (like nominals, satisfaction 
operators, binders, etc.) but also extensions of modal logic that 
increase its expressive power in one way or other.

For more general background on hybrid logic, and many of the key
papers, see the Hybrid Logics homepage (http://hylo.loria.fr/).

The special issue will welcome papers in a wide range 
of topics, including description logic, feature logic, applied
modal logics, temporal logic, and labelled deduction. 

We welcome both theoretical work and work describing systems and
applications on hybrid logics, broadly conceived.

All submissions will be peer reviewed with respect to the usual 
journal criteria. Authors are invited to submit original, 
previously unpublished, research papers written in English.


Papers should not exceed 25 pages including references. Authors 
are required to prepare their submissions in latex, using the 
style available at http://hylo.loria.fr/content/SI/2009

Submissions should be sent as .pdf files to
