                      SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
      International Workshop on Hybrid Logic 2007 (HyLo 2007)
                        6 - 10 August, 2007
                       organized as part of
                   the European Summer School on
                  Logic, Language and Information
           ESSLLI 2007 https://www.cs.tcd.ie/esslli2007

Hybrid logic is a branch of modal logic allowing direct reference 
to worlds/times/states. It is easy to justify interest in hybrid 
logic on the grounds of applications as the additional expressive 
power is very useful. In addition, hybrid-logical machinery improves 
the behaviour of the underlying modal formalism. For example, it 
becomes considerably simpler to formulate modal proof systems, and 
one can prove completeness and interpolation results of a 
generality that is not available in orthodox modal logic.

The topic of the HyLo workshop of 2007 is not only standard 
hybrid-logical machinery like nominals, satisfaction operators, and 
the downarrow binder, but generally extensions of modal logic that 
increase its expressive power.

The workshop HyLo 2007 will be relevant to a wide range of people, 
including those interested in description logic, feature logic, 
applied modal logics, temporal logic, and labelled deduction. The 
workshop continues a series of previous workshops on hybrid logic, 
most recently the LICS-affiliated HyLo 2006 
(http://hylomol.ruc.dk/HyLo2006/). The workshop aims to provide a 
forum for advanced PhD students and researchers to present and 
discuss their work with colleagues and researchers who work in the 
broad subject areas represented at ESSLLI.

For more general background on hybrid logic, and many of the key 
papers, see the Hybrid Logics homepage (http://hylo.loria.fr/). 


We invite the contribution of papers reporting new work from
researchers interested in hybrid logic. Papers should not 
exceed 10 pages including references. More details about the 
submission procedure will be announced in the last call for 
papers. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop 
proceedings published by ESSLLI. One author for each accepted paper 
must attend the workshop in order to present the paper. It is 
planned to publish revised versions of the accepted papers in a 
special issue of Journal of Logic, Language and Information.


The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI 
participants. It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over 
five consecutive days in the first week of ESSLLI. There will be 
2 or 3 slots for paper presentation and discussion per session. 
On the first day the workshop organizers will give an introduction 
to the topic.

Deadline for submissions: March 8, 2007
Notification of acceptance: April 21, 2007
Preliminary programme: April 24, 2007

Workshop dates: 6 - 10 August, 2007


All workshop participants including the presenters will be required 
to register for ESSLLI. The registration fee for authors presenting 
a paper will correspond to the early student/workshop speaker 
registration fee. Moreover, a number of additional fee waiver grants 
will be made available by the ESSLLI local organizing committee on 
a competitive basis and workshop participants are eligible to apply 
for those. There will be no reimbursement for travel costs and 
accommodation. Workshop speakers who have difficulty in finding 
funding should contact the local organizing committee to ask for 
the possibilities for a grant.
