Call for Papers

<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. The 
Seventeenth WoLLIC will be held in Brasília, 
Brazil, from July 6th to 9th, 2010. It is 
sponsored by the 
<http://www.aslonline.org/>Association for 
Symbolic Logic (ASL), the 
<http://www.cin.ufpe.br/~igpl>Interest Group in 
Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the 
<http://www.folli.org/>The Association for Logic, 
Language and Information (FoLLI), the 
<http://www.eatcs.org/>European Association for 
Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the 
<http://www.sbc.org.br/>Sociedade Brasileira de 
Computação (SBC), and the 
<http://www.cle.unicamp.br/sbl/>Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

Special Event
2010 will mark the 50-th anniversary of the first 
publication of Paul Halmos' classic book Naïve 
Set Theory by Van Nostrand. WoLLIC will celebrate 
this by screening the documentary about Paul 
Halmos which was directed by George Csicsery: "I 
want to be a mathematician. A conversation with 
Paul Halmos" 

Paper submission
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paper's main results must not be published or 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 the 
WoLLIC 2010 EasyChair website. (Please go to 
for instructions.) A title and single-paragraph 
abstract should be submitted by February 28, and 
the full paper by March 7 (firm date). 
Notifications are expected by April 11, and final 
papers for the proceedings will be due by April 27 (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2010, including both 
invited and contributed papers, will be published 
in advance of the meeting as a volume in 
Springer's <http://www.springer.com/lncs>LNCS 
series. 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 2010 issue of Journal of Computer Systems 
and Sciences (soon to be confirmed).
