                    Twenty-Sixth Annual IEEE Symposium on

                   LOGIC IN COMPUTER SCIENCE (LICS 2011)

                     June 21-24, 2011, Toronto, Canada


                          CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

LICS 2011 will be held at the Fields Institute on the campus of the
University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from June 21st to the
24th, 2011.

Registration for LICS is open. For online registration follow the link
to http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/cgi-bin/register?form_selection=LICS.

Early registration at reduced rates will be available till 31 May 2011.

A list of hotels with blocks of rooms reserved at reduced rates for LICS
participants can be found at

Rooms are reserved till the end of may, with different dates for the
various hotels.

The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and
practical topics in computer science that relate to logic broadly construed.
We invite submissions on topics that fit under that rubric.
Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest for submissions include:
automata theory, automated deduction, categorical models and logics,
concurrency and distributed computation, constraint programming,
constructive mathematics, database theory, description logics,
domain theory, finite model theory, formal aspects of program analysis,
formal methods, higher-order logic, hybrid systems, lambda and
combinatory calculi, linear logic, logical aspects of bioinformatics,
logical aspects of computational complexity, logical aspects of quantum
computation, logical frameworks, logic in artificial intelligence,
logics of programs, logic programming, modal and temporal logics, model
checking, probabilistic systems, process calculi, programming language
semantics, proof theory, reasoning about security, rewriting, type
systems and type theory, and verification.

Tutorial Day:
  At LICS 2011, we will start a series of tutorials on the core areas
  of logic in computer science. Rather than focussing on a specialised
  topic, these tutorials will highlight the basic questions, techniques
  and motivation of a broader area. The tutorials are aimed to be
  accessible to all LICS participants. In 2011, we will have two
  half-day tutorials on Finite Model Theory and Semantics respectively,
  to be held on June 20.
  The speakers will be
   * Albert Atserias (UPC Barcelona) on Finite Model Theory and
   * Prakash Panangaden (McGill University, Montreal) on Semantics.

Invited Speakers:
  * Naoki Kobayashi, Tohoku University
  * Andrei Krokhin, University of Durham
  * Toniann Pitassi, University of Toronto
  * Ashish Tiwari, SRI

Important Dates:
    * Early registration ends 31 May 2011
    * Conference:   21­24 June 2011

Kleene Award for Best Student Paper:
  An award in honour of the late S.~C.~Kleene will be given for the
  best student paper, as judged by the program committee.  Details
  concerning eligibility criteria and procedure for consideration for
  this award will be posted at the LICS website. The program committee
  may decline to make the award or may split it among several papers.

Special Issue:
  Full versions of upto 3 accepted papers, to be selected by the
  program committee, will be invited for submission to the Journal of
  the ACM. Additional selected papers will be invited to the special
  issue of the open-access journal Logical Methods in Computer Science.

Affiliated Workshops:
  As in previous years, there will be a number of workshops affiliated
  with LICS 2011; information  will be posted at the LICS website.
