                               Call for Papers

          16th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
                                (WoLLIC 2009)
                                Tokyo, Japan
                               June 21-24, 2009
            (SPECIAL: There will be a screening of George Csicsery's
                 "N is a Number: A Portrait of Paul Erdos"
                 with kind permission of the film director)

     WoLLIC is an annual international forum on inter-disciplinary research
     involving formal logic, computing and programming theory, and natural
     language and reasoning.  Each meeting includes invited talks and
     tutorials as well as contributed papers.

     The Sixteenth WoLLIC will be held at the National Institute of Informatics
     in Tokyo, Japan, from June 21 to 24, 2009. It is jointly sponsored by
     the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and
     Applied Logics (IGPL), the Association for Logic, Language and Information
     (FoLLI), the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science
     (EATCS), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computacao (SBC), and the
     Sociedade Brasileira de Logica (SBL).

     2009 will mark the 60-th anniversary of the publication of Paul Erdos'
     elementary proof of the Prime Number Theorem. WoLLIC will celebrate
     this by screening the documentary about Paul Erdos which was directed
     by George Csicsery "N is a number - A Portrait of Paul Erdos"

     Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular
     interest in cross-disciplinary topics.  Typical but not exclusive
     areas of interest are: foundations of computing and programming;
     novel computation models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief;
     formal methods in software and hardware development; logical approach to
     natural language and reasoning; logics of programs, actions and resources;
     foundational aspects of information organization, search, flow, sharing,
     and protection.
     Proposed contributions should be in English, and consist of a scholarly
     exposition accessible to the non-specialist, including motivation,
     background, and comparison with related works.
     They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or higher), with up to
     5 additional pages for references and technical appendices.
     The paper's main results must not be published or submitted
     for publication in refereed venues, including journals and other
     scientific meetings.
     It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by
     one of its authors.
     Papers must be submitted electronically at
     A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by
     February 28, and the full paper by March 8 (firm date).
     Notifications are expected by April 19, and final papers for
     the proceedings will be due by May 3 (firm date).

     The proceedings of WoLLIC 2009, including both invited and contributed
     papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
     Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (TBC).
     In addition, abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section
     of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will
     be published as a special post-conference WoLLIC 2009 issue of a
     scientific journal.
