The 27th International Conference on Automated Deduction (CADE-27)
Natal, Brazil
25-30 August 2019


CADE is the major international forum for presenting research on all aspects 
of automated deduction. High-quality submissions on the general topic of 
automated deduction, including foundations, applications, implementations, 
theoretical results, practical experiences and user studies are solicited.

Key dates:
  Abstract deadline (extended):        20 February 2019
  Submission deadline (extended):      27 February 2019

* Logics of interest include propositional, first-order, equational, 
  higher-order, classical, description, modal, temporal, many-valued, 
  constructive, other non-classical, meta-logics, logical frameworks, type 
  theory, set theory, as well as any combination thereof.

* Paradigms of interest include theorem proving, model building, constraint 
  solving, computer algebra, model checking, proof checking, and their 

* Methods of interest include resolution, superposition, completion, 
  saturation, term rewriting, decision procedures, model elimination, 
  connection methods, tableaux, sequent calculi, natural deduction, as 
  well as their supporting algorithms and data structures, including 
  matching, unification, orderings, induction, indexing techniques, proof 
  presentation and explanation, proof planning.

* Applications of interest include program analysis, verification and 
  synthesis of software and hardware, formal methods, computational logic, 
  computer mathematics, natural language processing, computational 
  linguistics, knowledge representation, ontology reasoning, deductive 
  databases, declarative programming, robotics, planning, and other areas 
  of artificial intelligence.

Submissions can be made in two categories: regular papers and system 
descriptions. The page limit in Springer LNCS style is 15 pages excluding 
references for regular papers and 10 pages excluding references for system 
descriptions. Submissions must be unpublished and not submitted for 
publication elsewhere. They will be judged on relevance, originality, 
significance, correctness, and readability.  System descriptions must 
contain a link to a working system and will also be judged on usefulness 
and design. Proofs of theoretical results that do not fit in the page limit, 
executables of systems, and input data of experiments should be made 
available, via a reference to a website or in an appendix of the paper. 
For papers containing experimental evaluations, all data needed to rerun 
the experiments must be available. Reviewers will be encouraged to consider 
this additional material, but submissions must be self-contained within the 
respective page limit; considering the additional material should not be 
necessary to assess the merits of a submission. The review process will 
include a feedback/rebuttal period where authors will have the option to 
respond to reviewer comments. The PC chair may solicit further reviews after 
the rebuttal period.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer LNCS/LNAI 
series. Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained at


At every CADE conference the Program Committee selects one of the accepted 
papers to receive the CADE Best Paper Award. The award recognizes a paper 
that the Program Committee collegially evaluates as the best in terms of 
originality and significance, having substantial confidence in its correctness. 
Overall technical quality, completeness, scholarly accuracy, and readability 
are also considered. Characteristics associated with a best paper include, 
for instance, introduction of a strong new technique or approach, solution 
of a long-standing open problem, introduction and solution of an interesting 
and important new problem, highly innovative application of known ideas or 
existing techniques, and presentation of a new system of outstanding power. 
Under exceptional circumstances, the Program Committee may give two awards 
(ex aequo) or give no award.

  Abstract deadline:        20 February 2019
  Submission deadline:      27 February 2019
  Rebuttal phase:           2  April    2019
  Notification:             15 April    2019
  Final version:            27 May      2019
