Apologies if you recieve this call for participation more than once.

            Methods for Modalities - CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The workshop "Methods for Modalities" (M4M) aims to bring together
researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods
and tools based on modal logic. Here the term "modal logics" is conceived
broadly, including description logic, guarded fragments, conditional logic,
temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

This year's M4M will take place in Berlin - Adlershof, Germany.
It is hosted by FIRST, the Fraunhofer Institute of Computer Architecture
and Software Technology, in collaboration with the computer science
institute of Humboldt University.

The workshop dates are December 1st and 2nd, 2005. THIS IS IN TWO WEEKS!
The conference fee of 160 Euros includes the excursion with conference
dinner, which will take us at Dec 1st onto a beautiful boat cruising
the illuminated nightly waterways of Germany's capital.
Registration is now open at http://m4m.loria.fr/M4M4/workshop.html

To encourage broad participation of young researchers, posters and
system demos are still accepted for presentation.
For more information, see the conference web site.

See you in Berlin!
