WoLLIC 2019
26th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
July 2nd to 5th, 2019
Utrecht, The Netherlands

Utrecht University, Faculty of Humanities, The Netherlands (host university)
Centro de Informática, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil

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 twenty-fifth WoLLIC will be held at
Utrecht University, The Netherlands, from July 2nd to 5th, 2019. It is
sponsored by the Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group
in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL), the The Association for Logic, Language
and Information (FoLLI), the European Association for Theoretical Computer
Science (EATCS), the European Association for Computer Science Logic
(EACSL), ACM Special Interest Group on Logic and Computation (ACM-SIGLOG)
(TBC), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade
Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

Just before and after the main WoLLIC 2019 event, Utrecht University will
host two satellite workshops:

-Proof Theory in Logic on July 1-2, 2019. This workshop on the role of
structural proof theory in the study of logics will consist of invited
talks by researchers in that area.
-Compositionality in formal and distributional models of natural language
semantics, on July 6, 2019.

The workshop programs will be announced end of December 2018 via the WoLLIC
2019 website (https://wollic2019.sites.uu.nl). Attendance of these
satellite workshops is free, but registration is required.

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; proof mining, type
theory, effective learnability; 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; foundations of
mathematics; philosophy of mathematics; philosophical logic; philosophy of
language. 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. Articles should
be written in the LaTeX format of LNCS by Springer (see authors
instructions at http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
They must not exceed 12 pages, 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. (At least one author is required to
pay the registration fee before granting that the paper will be published
in the proceedings.) Papers must be submitted electronically at the WoLLIC
2019 EasyChair website. (Please go to
http://wollic.org/wollic2019/instructions.html for instructions.) A title
and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by Feb 22, 2019, and the
full paper by Feb 26, 2019 (firm date). Notifications are expected by April
5, 2019, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by April 15, 2019
(firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2019, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's 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 (after a new round of reviewing) as a
special post-conference WoLLIC 2019 issue of a scientific journal (to be


ASL sponsorship of WoLLIC 2019 will permit ASL student members to apply for
a modest travel grant (deadline: May 1st, 2019). See
