                            CALL FOR PAPERS

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial 
Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of 
the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, 
computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to 
present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to 
exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 22nd LPAR 
will be held will be held in Haile Resort, Awassa, Ethiopia, 16-21 November
2018. The proceedings will be published by EasyChair Publications, in the EPiC
Series in Computing. The volume will be open access and the authors will retain

 + Logic and machine learning
 + Logic and the web     
 + Logic and types
 + Logic in artificial intelligence     
 + Logic of distributed systems
 + Logic of knowledge and belief
 + Logic programming     
 + Logical aspects of concurrency
 + Logical foundations of programming     
 + Modal and temporal logics
 + Model checking     
 + Non-monotonic reasoning
 + Ontologies and large knowledge bases     
 + Paraconsistent logics
 + Probabilistic and fuzzy reasoning
 + Program analysis     
 + Rewriting
 + Satisfiability checking     
 + Satisfiability modulo theories

 Program Chairs:

Gilles Barthe (IMDEA Software Institute)
Margus Veanes (Microsoft Research)
Martin Hofmann (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, in memoriam)

 Conference Chair: 

Geoff Sutcliffe (University of Miami, USA)  

==Submission Details

Submissions of two kinds are welcome:

- Regular papers that describe solid new research results. They can be
  up to 15 pages long in EasyChair style, including figures but excluding 
  references and appendices (that reviewers are not required to read).

- Experimental and tool papers that describe implementations of
  systems, report experiments with implemented systems, or compare
  implemented systems. They can be up to 8 pages long in the EasyChair

Both types of papers must be electronically submitted in PDF via EasyChair:


Authors must register a title and an abstract by the abstract submission 


Authors of accepted papers are required to ensure that at least one of
them will be present at the conference.

==Workshop Proposals

Proposals for workshops to be held in conjunctionwith LPAR-22 are solicited.
Please email proposals to the program and conference chairs.
