*Call for Participation*

/*16th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation*/ 
(/*WoLLIC 2009*/)
Tokyo, Japan
June 21-24, 2009
(SPECIAL: There will be a screening of George Csicsery's "N is a Number: 
A Portrait of Paul Erdos <http://zalafilms.com/films/nisanumber.html>", 
with kind permission of the film director)

WoLLIC <http://wollic.org> 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.

WoLLIC 2009 <http://research.nii.ac.jp/wollic2009/> will be held from 
June 21 through 24, 2009, in the National Center of Sciences 
the building that houses the National Institute of Informatics 
in central Tokyo. It is jointly 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), the 
Sociedade Brasileira de Computacao (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira 
de Logica (SBL).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2009 will appear as Volume 5514 of the 
<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-144181-0> subline 
of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science 

*Special Event*
2009 will mark the 60-th anniversary of the publication of Paul Erdos' 
elementary proof of the Prime Number Theorem. WoLLIC will celebrate this 
by screening the documentary about Paul Erdos which was directed by 
George Csicsery "N is a number - A Portrait of Paul Erdos
