WoLLIC 2023
29th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
11-14 July, 2023
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Website: https://www.mathstat.dal.ca/wollic2023/

Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Dalhousie University, Canada
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-ninth WoLLIC will be held at the
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Dalhousie University, Canada,
11-14 July, 2023.  It is scientifically sponsored by the Association for
Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and Applied Logics (IGPL),
the Association for Logic, Language and Information (FoLLI), the European
Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) (tbc), European
Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), and the Sociedade
Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

Halifax (https://www.halifax.ca/) is the capital and largest municipality
of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, and the largest municipality in
Atlantic Canada. (Wikipedia)
WoLLIC 2023 will be a hybrid event. All invited talks are planned to be
on-site in order to stimulate discussions and interaction with participants.

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, programming and Artificial
Intelligence (AI); novel computation models and paradigms; broad notions of
proof and belief; proof mining, type theory, effective learnability and
explainable AI; 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;
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 author's 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 either in person or via remote connection. (At least one
author is required to pay a full on-site registration fee before granting
that the paper will be published in the proceedings.)
Papers must be submitted electronically at the WoLLIC 2023 EasyChair
website https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wollic2023.

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2023, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published as a volume in Springer's LNCS series. Due to the
earlier timeline this year, the proceedings will appear after the workshop.
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 2023 issue of a scientific journal (to be confirmed).

It is planned to have a special session with the exhibition of a
documentary film which traces the history of the individuals who worked as
pioneers in expanding the presence of African Americans in mathematics. "
'Journeys of Black Mathematicians' is a film that will inspire African
American students to continue their studies and consider career paths in
mathematics." (zalafilms.com) The film is in production, and the filmmaker
George Csicsery is willing to present either a rough cut if it is ready by
then, or some sample scenes.
