		      IJCAR'12 Workshop on
	    Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning

		   Deadline: April 16th, 2012

  The third Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning
  will be held in June 2012 in Manchester, UK. PAAR will be
  associated with the 6th International Joint Conference on
  Automated Reasoning (IJCAR-2012), which is held as part of the
  Alan Turing Year 2012, just after The Alan Turing Centenary

  PAAR provides a forum for developers of automated reasoning
  tools to discuss and compare different implementation techniques,
  and for users to discuss and communicate their applications and
  requirements. The workshop will bring together different groups
  to concentrate on practical aspects of the implementation and
  application of automated reasoning tools. It will allow
  researchers to present their work in progress, and to discuss new
  implementation techniques and applications.

  Topics include but are not limited to:
    o automated reasoning in propositional, first-order,
      higher-order and non-classical logics;
    o implementation of provers (SAT, SMT, resolution, tableau,
      instantiation-based, rewriting, logical frameworks, etc);
    o automated reasoning tools for all kinds of practical
      problems and applications;
    o pragmatics of automated reasoning within proof assistants;
    o practical experiences, usability aspects, feasibility
    o evaluation of implementation techniques and automated
      reasoning tools;
    o performance aspects, benchmarking approaches;
    o non-standard approaches to automated reasoning,
      non-standard forms of automated reasoning, new
    o implementation techniques, optimisation techniques,
      strategies and heuristics, fairness;
    o support tools for prover development;
    o system descriptions and demos. 
  We are particularly interested in contributions that help the
  community to understand how to build useful reasoning systems
  in practice, and how to apply existing systems to real

  Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a
  short abstract of up to 10 pages via EasyChair. Submissions will
  be refereed by the program committee, which will select a
  balanced program of high-quality contributions.

  Submissions should be in standard-conforming PDF.

  To submit a paper, go to the EasyChair PAAR page 


  and follow the instructions there.

  Final versions should be prepared in LaTeX using the
  easychair.cls class file obtainable from
  http://www.easychair.org/easychair.zip. Proceedings will be
  published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings and will be available in
  print at the event.

  If quality and quantity of the subissions warrants this, we
  plan to produce a special issue of a recognized journal on the
  topic of the workshop.
