The 18th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning

Merida, Venezuela - March 11-15, 2012

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 18th LPAR will be held in Merida, Venezuela.

Logic is a fundamental organizing principle in nearly all areas in Computer Science. It runs a multifaceted gamut from the foundational to the applied. At one extreme, it underlies computability and complexity theory and the formal semantics of programming languages. At the other extreme, it drives billions of gates every day in the digital circuits of processors of all kinds. Logic is in itself a powerful programming paradigm, but it is also the quintessential specification language for anything ranging from real-time critical systems to networked infrastructures. Logical techniques link implementation and specification through formal methods such as automated theorem proving and model checking. Logic is also the stuff of knowledge representation and artificial intelligence. Because of its ubiquity, logic has acquired a central role in Computer Science education.

Topics: New results in the fields of computational logic and applications are welcome. Also welcome are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories and practices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 * Automated reasoning
 * Verification
 * Interactive theorem proving and proof assistants
 * Model checking
 * Implementations of logic
 * Satisfiability modulo theories
 * Rewriting and unification
 * Logic programming
 * Satisfiability checking
 * Constraint programming
 * Decision procedures
 * Logic and games
 * Logic and the Web
 * Ontologies and large knowledge bases
 * Logic and databases
 * Modal and temporal logics
 * Program analysis
 * Foundations of security
 * Description logics
 * Non-monotonic reasoning
 * Uncertainty reasoning
 * Logics for vague and inconsistent data
 * Specification using logic
 * Logic in artificial intelligence
 * Logic and types
 * Logical foundations of programming
 * Logical aspects of concurrency
 * Logic and computational complexity
 * Knowledge representation and reasoning
 * Logic of distributed systems

Submission Details

Submissions of two kinds are welcome: Regular papers that describe solid new research results. They can be up to 15 pages long in LNCS style, including figures and references, but excluding appendices (that reviewers are not required to read). Experimental and tool papers that describe implementations of systems, report experiments with implemented systems, or compare implemented systems. They can be up to 8 pages long in the LNCS style. Both types of papers can be electronically submitted in PDF via EasyChair. Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract a week before the paper submission deadline (see website).
