*Call for Papers*

WoLLIC <http://wollic.org/> 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
twentieth WoLLIC will be held at the Technische Universität Darmstadt,
Germany, from August 20th to 23rd, 2013. It is sponsored by the Association
for Symbolic Logic <http://www.aslonline.org/> (ASL), the Interest Group in
Pure and Applied Logics <http://www.cin.ufpe.br/~igpl> (IGPL), the The
Association for Logic, Language and Information
<http://www.folli.org/> (FoLLI),
theEuropean Association for Theoretical Computer
Science<http://www.eatcs.org/> (EATCS),
the European Association for Computer Science Logic
<http://www.eacsl.org/> (EACSL),
the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação <http://www.sbc.org.br/> (SBC), and
the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica <http://www.cle.unicamp.br/sbl/> (SBL).

*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 The paper's main results must not be published or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 2012 EasyChair website. (Please go to
instructions.) A title and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by
March 25th, and the full paper by March 29th (firm date). Notifications are
expected by May 3rd, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by
May 15th (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2013, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's LNCS <http://www.springer.com/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 2013 issue of a scientific journal (to be
