  Call for Papers

WoLLIC <http://wollic.org> is an annual international forum on 
inter-disciplinary research involving formal logic, computing and 
programming theory, and natural language and reasoning. Each meeting 
includes invited talks and tutorials as well as contributed papers. The 
Seventeenth WoLLIC will be held in Brasília, Brazil, from July 6th to 
9th, 2010. It is sponsored by theAssociation for Symbolic Logic 
<http://www.aslonline.org> (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied 
Logics <http://www.cin.ufpe.br/%7Eigpl> (IGPL), the The Association for 
Logic, Language and Information <http://www.folli.org> (FoLLI), 
the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science 
<http://www.eatcs.org> (EATCS), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação 
<http://www.sbc.org.br> (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica 
<http://www.cle.unicamp.br/sbl/> (SBL).

*Special Event*
2010 will mark the 50-th anniversary of the first publication of Paul 
Halmos' classic book /Naïve Set Theory/ by Springer Verlag. WoLLIC will 
celebrate this by screening the documentary about Paul Halmos which was 
directed by George Csicsery: "I want to be a mathematician. A 
conversation with Paul Halmos" http://zalafilms.com/films/halmos.html

*Paper submission*
Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular 
interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas 
of interest are: foundations of computing and programming; novel 
computation models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; 
formal methods in software and hardware development; logical approach to 
natural language and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and 
resources; foundational aspects of information organization, search, 
flow, sharing, and protection. Proposed contributions should be in 
English, and consist of a scholarly exposition accessible to the 
non-specialist, including motivation, background, and comparison with 
related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or higher), 
with up to 5 additional pages for references and technical appendices. 
The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for 
publication in refereed venues, including journals and other scientific 
meetings. It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the 
meeting by one of its authors. Papers must be submitted electronically 
at the WoLLIC 2010 EasyChair website (soon to be announced). A title and 
single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by February 28, and the 
full paper by March 7 (firm date). Notifications are expected by April 
12, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 3 (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2010, including both invited and contributed 
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in 
Springer's LNCS <http://www.springer.com/lncs> series (TBC). In 
addition, abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section 
of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will be 
published as a special post-conference WoLLIC 2010 issue of a scientific 
journal (soon to be announced).

*Invited Speakers*

*Student Grants*
ASL sponsorship of WoLLIC 2010 will permit ASL student members to apply
