Special Issue on
Logic and Information: From Logic to Constructive Reasoning
of the Journal of Logic and Algebraic Programming

Submission Deadline: March 12, 2007

Call for papers

Following the Swiss-South African (SNSF-NRF) joint seminar

     Logic and Information:
     From Logic to Constructive Reasoning
     University of Berne, Switzerland, January 22-25, 2007

it is planned to publish a special issue of the

     Journal of Logic and Algebraic Programming (JLAP)

This issue is supposed to contain papers related to the seminar
but it is also open to other submissions that meet the standards
of JLAP and the scope of the seminar.


The purpose of the seminar is to bring together researchers
working on combinatorial, probabilistic, logical and topological
aspects of reasoning in Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science
in order to discuss problems of common interest related to various
approaches to constructive mathematics.

On the one hand, combinatorial, probabilistic and logical methods
have many applications in theoretical computer science and a direct
impact on algorithms in general and on reasoning in the area of
artificial intelligence. Certain modal fixpoint logics, for example,
are widely used for specification and verification of algorithms.

On the other hand, proof theory has revealed a deep relationship
between logic and computer science: the famous "proofs as
computations" paradigm and the Curry-Howard interpretations are
just examples of a flourishing area.
