                TABLEAUX 2013

          22nd International Conference on Automated Reasoning with
                 Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods

                Nancy, France
                September 16-19, 2013



   This conference is the 22nd in a series of international meetings
   on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods
   and will be held in Nancy, France, in September 16-19, 2013.

   See http://tableaux13.loria.fr for more information on TABLEAUX 2013,
   and http://i12www.ira.uka.de/TABLEAUX for information about the
   TABLEAUX conference series.

   TABLEAUX 2013 will be co-located with the 9th International Symposium
   on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCos 2013) held September 18-20,
   2013. A joint invited speaker and a joint session are planned.


   Tableaux methods offer a convenient set of formalisms for automating
   deduction in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic.
   Areas of application include verification of software and computer
   systems, data integration and data access, deductive databases, knowledge
   representation and its required inference engines, and system diagnosis.
   The conference intends to bring together researchers interested in all
   aspects - theoretical foundations, implementation techniques, system
   developments and applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with
   tableaux and related methods.

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

     * proof-theory in classical and non-classical logics (modal,
       temporal, description, intuitionistic, substructural, ...)
     * 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, resolution, ...)
     * new calculi and methods for theorem proving and verification
       in classical and non-classical logics
     * systems, tools, implementations and applications (provers,
       logical frameworks, model checkers, ...)
     * automated deduction and formal methods applied to logic,
       mathematics, software development, protocol verification,
       security, ...

   TABLEAUX 2013 also welcomes applications of formal methods with automated
   reasoning to real world examples. Papers including such applications of
   tableaux and related methods in areas such as, for example, hardware and
   software verification, knowledge engineering, semantic web, etc. are
   particularly invited. They should be tailored for the tableaux community
   and should hence focus on the role of reasoning and logical aspects 
of the

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


   It is planned that the proceedings of TABLEAUX 2013 will be
   published in the Springer LNCS/LNAI Series.


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

     A  Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or
        experimental research, up to 15 pages)

     B  System descriptions (up to 7 pages)

     C  Tutorials in all areas of analytic tableaux and related
        methods from academic research to applications
       (proposals 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. Accepted
   papers in these categories will be published in the conference
   proceedings (within the LNAI series of Springer), which will be
   available at the conference. For category B submissions a working
   implementation must exist and be available to the referees.

   Tutorial submissions (Category C) may be at introductory,
   intermediate, or advanced levels. Novel topics and topics of broad
   interest are preferred. The submission should include the title,
   the author, the topic of the tutorial, its level, its relevance to
   conference topics, and a description of the interest and the
   scientific contents of the proposed tutorial, to be presented in a
   time frame of at most 3 hours. Tutorial proposals will be reviewed
   by members of the program committee.

   For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to
   attend the conference to present the paper. Prospective authors
   are required to register a title and an abstract a week before
   the paper submission deadline.

   Further information and instructions about submissions can be found
   on the conference website at http://tableaux13.loria.fr.

Conference:  September 16-19, 2013


   Workshop proposals on specialised subjects in the range of the conference
   topics are welcome. We can accept up to 3 proposals. They can focus on
   specialized or broader areas and also on theoretical and/or applied 
   The format of a workshop is left to the organizers but typically TABLEAUX
   workshops feature invited speakers and a number of contributed 
   and the intended schedule is for one-day workshops.

   The date for TABLEAUX workshops is Monday 16th September, 2013.

   Proposals should include:

   - Workshop title
   - Names and affiliations of the organizers
   - Brief scientific description of the aims and scopes of the 
workshop, with
     an emphasis on the relevance for the Tableaux community.
   - Presentation of the proposed format and agenda.
   - Procedure for selecting papers and possibly participants. .
   - Expected number of participants and the potential invited speakers.
   - Plans for dissemination (for example, special issues of journals).

   To submit a workshop proposal, please send a description (up to 3 pages)
    to the PC chairs by  February 22, 2013.
   The proposals will be reviewed by the members of the PC committee.
