Call for Participation

16th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation (WoLLIC 2009)
Tokyo, Japan
June 21-24, 2009
(SPECIAL: There will be a screening of George 
"<http://zalafilms.com/films/nisanumber.html>N is 
a Number: A Portrait of Paul Erdos", with kind permission of the film director)

<http://wollic.org>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.

2009 will be held from June 21 through 24, 2009, 
in the 
Center of Sciences, the building that houses the 
Institute of Informatics in central Tokyo. 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).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2009 will appear as 
Volume 5514 of the 
subline of the Springer 
<http://www.springer.com/lncs>Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Special Event
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 
"<http://zalafilms.com/films/nisanumber.html>N is 
a number - A Portrait of Paul Erdos".

Book Exhibition
The following publishers are expected to be 
exhibiting various books from their catalogue, 
prospectuses, journal samples, etc., and there 
will be a chance to order items at promotional 
prices: The MIT Press, Springer-Verlag, A K 
Peters, Kluwer Acad. Pub.,Cambridge Univ. Press,
