ACL2 2006
International Workshop on the ACL2 Theorem Prover and its Applications
August 15-16, 2006 in Seattle, Washington
Part of FLoC 2006 (http://research.microsoft.com/floc06/)
Hosted by CAV 2006 and IJCAR 2006
Submission deadline: April 12, 2006
Acceptance notification: June 9, 2006
Final version due: July 24, 2006

ACL2 2006 is the major technical forum for users of the ACL2 theorem
proving system and is the sixth in a series of workshops that occur
every 18 months. ACL2 is an industrial-strength automated reasoning
system that is part of the Boyer-Moore family of theorem provers, winner
of the 2005 ACM Software System Award. ACL2 2006 is hosted by the CAV
and IJCAR conferences, which are part of FLoC 2006, the Federated Logic
Conference. In addition, and as reflected by our program committee, we
encourage participation from users of other theorem provers and persons
interested in the application of theorem proving technology. We invite
papers on any ACL2-related topic, including but not limited to:
+ applications of the theorem prover,
+ proposals for ACL2 theorem prover improvements, especially as
illustrated in experimental extensions or other systems,
+ comparisons with other theorem provers, programming languages, or
specification languages,
+ solved (and unsolved!) challenge problems, and
+ implementations connecting ACL2 with other systems.
Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format, following the
instructions on the ACL2 2006 Web site. Submissions must use the ACM
SIG Proceedings format with letter-size paper (see
Two categories of papers will be accepted: long (at most 10 pages) and
short (at most 4 pages). Authors can assume that the workshop audience
has a working knowledge of ACL2's syntax, basic commands, and modeling
techniques. Papers should contain a short abstract of approximately 150
words clearly stating the contribution of the submission. Authors of
accepted papers are required to give a presentation at the workshop.
Papers should be self-contained, but, as has been the case traditionally
(and where applicable), we strongly encourage authors to provide ACL2
"books" or script files that provide full details, along with
instructions for how to process these books with ACL2. For accepted
papers, these books will be mirrored on the ACL2 home page and included
in future ACL2 distributions. We expect to provide workshop proceedings
and to include these proceedings in the ACM digital library.
