    This conference is the 20th in a series of international meetings on
    Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods.

    In July 2011, the conference will be held in Bern, Switzerland.  The
    conference proceedings will be published in the Springer LNAI series as
    in the previous editions of the conference.

    See http://www.tableaux11.unibe.ch/ for more information on TABLEAUX
    2011, and http://i12www.ira.uka.de/TABLEAUX for information about
    the TABLEAUX conference series.


    Tableau methods are a convenient formalism for automating deduction
    in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic. Areas
    of application include verification of software and computer
    systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
    required inference engines, and system diagnosis. The conference
    brings together researchers interested in all aspects - theoretical
    foundations, implementation techniques, systems development and
    applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with tableaux and
    related methods.

    Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

      * analytic tableaux for various logics (theory and applications)
      * related techniques and concepts, e.g., model checking and BDDs
      * related methods (model elimination, sequent calculi,
        connection method, ...)
      * new calculi and methods for theorem proving in classical and
        non-classical logics (modal, description, intuitionistic, linear,
        temporal, many-valued...)
      * systems, tools, implementations and applications.

    As in previous years, TABLEAUX 2011 puts a special emphasis on
    applications. Papers describing applications of tableaux and related
    methods in areas such as hardware and software verification,
    semantic technologies, knowledge engineering, etc. are particularly

    One or more tutorials will be part of the conference program.


    The conference will include contributed papers, tutorials, system
    descriptions, position papers and invited lectures. Submissions are
    invited in three categories:

      A  Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or experimental
                          research, up to 15 pages)
      B  System descriptions (up to 5 pages)
      C  Short papers reporting work in progress (up to 5 pages)

    Submissions in categories A and B will be reviewed by peers,
    typically members of the program committee. They must be unpublished
    and not submitted for publication elsewhere.  For category B
    submissions a working implementation must exist and be available to
    the referees.  Accepted papers in these categories will be published in
    the conference proceedings.

    Submissions in category C will be reviewed by members of the program
    committee and a collection of the accepted papers in this category
    will be published as a Technical Report of the University of Bern.

    Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the
