                 PAAR-2014: CALL FOR PAPERS

PAAR-2014 – 4th Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning
               July 23, 2014  Vienna, Austria


General Information

The 4th Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning will be
held on July 23, 2014 in Vienna. PAAR will be associated with the 7th
International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning, IJCAR'14 and it
will be part of the Vienna Summer of Logic 2014.


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

Topics include but are not limited to:

- automated reasoning in propositional, first-order, higher-order and
  non-classical logics; 
- implementation of provers (SAT, SMT, resolution, tableau,
  instantiation-based, rewriting, logical frameworks, etc); 
- automated reasoning tools for all kinds of practical problems and
- pragmatics of automated reasoning within proof assistants;
- practical experiences, usability aspects, feasibility studies;
- evaluation of implementation techniques and automated reasoning
- performance aspects, benchmarking approaches;
- non-standard approaches to automated reasoning, non-standard forms
  of automated reasoning, new applications; 
- implementation techniques, optimisation techniques, strategies and
  heuristics, fairness; 
- support tools for prover development;
- 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 problems.

Paper Submissions

Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a short
abstract of up to 10 pages via EasyChair at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=paar2014. Submissions will
be refereed by the program committee, which will select a balanced
program of high-quality contributions.

Submissions should be prepared in LaTeX using the EasyChair
proceedings style. The package containing the class file and its user
guide and some helper tools can be downloaded from

Proceedings will be published in the EasyChair Proceedings in
Computing (EPiC) series.

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
