The 28th International Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic 
Tableaux and Related Methods

London, UK, September 3-5, 2019

Website: https://www.tableaux2019.org

Contact: chair at tableaux2019.org

Due to requests from potential authors and from current authors wishing 
to polish their papers, we have extended the submission deadlines. The 
new deadlines are:

1 May 2019 (abstract), 8 May 2019 (paper)

Authors who have a good paper and are in doubt whether to send it to 
TABLEAUX may note some highlights of this year's edition: two affiliated 
workshops, two affiliated tutorials, a financially supported best paper 
award for young researchers, five outstanding invited speakers (to be 
announced soon) and some support for young researchers traveling to the 
conference (including widely available cheap accommodation). We hope to 
see many of you this September in London -- in the beautiful campus of 
the Middlesex University, located 40 minutes from the city center and 20 
minutes from Camden Town's iconic music venues!


The 28th International Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic 
Tableaux and Related Methods (TABLEAUX 2019) will take place in London. 
It will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science at the Middlesex 
University London, on 3-5 September 2019.

TABLEAUX is the main international conference at which research on all 
aspects -- theoretical foundations, implementation techniques, systems 
development and applications -- of the mechanization of tableaux-based 
reasoning and related methods is presented. The first TABLEAUX 
conference was held in Lautenbach near Karlsruhe, Germany, in 1992. 
Since then it has been organized on an annual basis; in 2001, 2004, 
2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018 as a constituent of IJCAR.

TABLEAUX 2019 will be co-located with the 12th International Symposium 
on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2019). The conferences will 
provide a rich programme of workshops, tutorials, invited talks, paper 
presentations and system descriptions.


Tableau methods offer a convenient and flexible set of tools for 
automated reasoning in classical logic, extensions of classical logic, 
and a large number of non-classical logics. For many logics, tableau 
methods can be generated automatically. Areas of application include 
verification of software and computer systems, deductive databases, 
knowledge representation and its required inference engines, teaching, 
and system diagnosis.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* tableau methods for classical and non-classical logics (including 
first-order, higher-order, modal, temporal, description, hybrid, 
intuitionistic, substructural, fuzzy, relevance and non-monotonic 
logics) and their proof-theoretic foundations;

* sequent calculi and natural deduction calculi for classical and 
non-classical logics, as tools for proof search and proof representation;

* related methods (SMT, model elimination, model checking, connection 
methods, resolution, BDDs, translation approaches);

* flexible, easily extendable, light-weight methods for theorem proving; 
novel types of calculi for theorem proving and verification in classical 
and non-classical logics;

* systems, tools, implementations, empirical evaluations and 
applications (provers, proof assistants, logical frameworks, model 
checkers, etc.);

* implementation techniques (data structures, efficient algorithms, 
performance measurement, extensibility, etc.);

* extensions of tableau procedures with conflict-driven learning;

* techniques for proof generation and compact (or humanly readable) 
proof representation;

* theoretical and practical aspects of decision procedures;

* applications of automated deduction to mathematics, software 
development, verification, deductive and temporal databases, knowledge 
representation, ontologies, fault diagnosis or teaching.

We also welcome papers describing applications of tableau procedures to 
real-world examples. Such papers should be tailored to the tableau 
community and should focus on the role of reasoning and on logical 
aspects of the solution.


Submissions are invited in three categories:

(A) research papers reporting original theoretical research or 
applications, with length up to 15 pages excluding references;

(B) system descriptions, with length up to 9 pages excluding references;

(C) position papers and brief reports on work in progress, with length 
up to 9 pages excluding references.

Submissions will be reviewed by the PC, possibly with the help of 
external reviewers, taking into account readability, relevance and 
originality. Any additional material (going beyond the page limit) can 
be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the 
discretion of the committee and must be removed for the camera-ready 

For category A submissions, the reported results must be original and 
not submitted for publication elsewhere. For category B submissions, a 
working implementation must be accessible via the internet. Authors are 
encouraged to publish the implementation under an open source license. 
The aim of a system description is to make the system available in such 
a way that people can use it, understand it, and build on it. Accepted 
papers in categories A and B will be published in the conference 
proceedings. Accepted papers in category C will be published as a 
Technical Report of the Middlesex University London.

Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be 
submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system: 

For all accepted papers at least one author is required to attend the 
conference and present the paper. A title and a short abstract of about 
100 words must be submitted before the paper submission deadline. 
Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained at 


Abstract submission: 1 May 2019

Paper submission: 8 May 2019

Notification of paper decisions: 6 Jun 2019

Camera-ready papers due: 1 Jul 2019

TABLEAUX conference: 3-5 Sep 2019


The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer series 
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI/LNCS).


The program committee will select (1) the TABLEAUX 2019 Best Paper and 
(2) the TABLEAUX 2019 Best Paper by a Junior Researcher, of which the 
latter will be supported by 500 Euros. Researchers will be considered 
junior if either they are students or their PhD award date is less than 
two years from the first day of the meeting, 3 September 2019. "Paper by 
a Junior Researcher" means that the paper's main author is junior, or 
the paper's main authors are all junior. For a paper to qualify, this 
information must be indicated in the pdf submission by adding an 
asterisk (*) at both the title and the main-author name(s).


We have some limited funding for supporting students and young 
researchers traveling to the conference -- courtesy of direct 
sponsorship from Amazon and Springer and indirect sponsorship from the 
Association for Symbolic Logic. In addition, some funding will be 
available through the EUTypes COST action website. In all cases, authors 
of accepted papers will be given precedence. Please see the conference 
website for more details.

In addition, the Middlesex University is offering accommodation at a £30 
daily rate in some excellently maintained shared flats located close to 
the conference venue
