WoLLIC 2020
27th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
August 4th to 7th, 2020
Lima, Peru

Universidad de Ingenieria y Tecnologia, Lima, Peru
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-seventh WoLLIC will be held at
Universidad de Ingenieria y Tecnologia, Lima, Peru  from August 4th to 7th,
2020.  It is scientifically 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), ACM Special Interest
Group on Logic and Computation (ACM-SIGLOG) (TBC), the Sociedade Brasileira
de Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

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 The paper's main results must not be published or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
2020 EasyChair website. (Please go to
http://wollic.org/wollic2020/instructions.html for instructions.)

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2020, 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 2020 issue of a scientific journal (to be


ASL sponsorship of WoLLIC 2020 will permit ASL student members to apply for
a limited travel grant (deadline: 90 days before the event starts). Visit

It is planned to have a special session with the exhibition of a one-hour
documentary film about a remarkable mathematician whose contributions were
recognized with a Fields Medal just a few years before her untimely death.
It is a joint production (still on its course) of The Mathematical Sciences
Research Institute (MSRI) and George Csicsery (Zala Films): ‘Secrets of the
Surface - The Mathematical Vision of Maryam Mirzakhani’. “The biographical
film is about Maryam Mirzakhani, a brilliant woman, and Muslim immigrant to
the United States who became a superstar in her field. The story of her
life will be complemented with sections about Mirzakhani’s mathematical
contributions, as explained by colleagues and illustrated with animated
sequences. Throughout, we will look for clues about the sources of
Mirzakhani’s insights and creativity." (http://www.zalafilms.com/secrets/)
