                EXTENDED DEADLINE UNTIL 16 MAY 2014

                            CALL FOR ABSTRACTS 
        Joint Automated Reasoning Workshop and Deduktionstreffen
                       23-24 July 2014, Vienna, Austria


For many years the British and the German automated reasoning communities
have successfully run independent series of workshops for anybody working
in the area of automated reasoning. Although open to the general public
they addressed in the past primarily the British and the German
communities, respectively. At the occasion of the Vienna Summer of Logic
the two series will have a joint event in Vienna as an IJCAR workshop. In
the spirit of the two series there will be no formal proceedings and we try
to maintain the informal open atmosphere of the two series. We welcome in
particular research students to present their work. We solicit for all work
related to automated reasoning and its applications. We are particularly
interested in work-in-progress and the presentation of half-baked ideas.

As in the previous years, we aim to bring together researchers from all
areas of automated reasoning in order to foster links among researchers
from various disciplines; among theoreticians, implementers and users
alike, and among international communities, this year not just the British
and German communities.

We will also join with WING (Workshop on Invariant Generation) and the
VERIFY workshop.


   - Theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics
   - Interactive theorem proving, logical frameworks, proof assistants, 
   - Reasoning methods 
      o Saturation-based, instantiation-based, tableau, SAT
      o Equational reasoning, unification
      o Constraint satisfaction
      o Decision procedures, SMT
      o Combining reasoning systems
      o Non-monotonic reasoning, commonsense reasoning,
      o Abduction, induction
      o Model checking, model generation, explanation
   - Formal methods to specifying, deriving, transforming
     and verifying computer systems, requirements and software
   - Logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning:
      o Ontology engineering and reasoning
      o Domain specific reasoning (spatial, temporal, epistemic,agents, etc)
   - Logic and functional programming, deductive databases
   - Implementation issues and empirical results, demos
   - Practical experiences and applications of automated reasoning

For each accepted abstract we expect that one of the authors gives a short
plenary presentation as well as a poster presentation at the
workshop. Authors of accepted presentations will have a chance to revise
their submissions.

Suggestions for a panel session should include a list of potential
panellists in addition to the topic and to a statement of relevance. These
suggestions should also be submitted via the same EasyChair route.
