CALL FOR PAPERS
WoLLIC 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. The twenty-third WoLLIC will be held at
the Department of Computer Science, Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de
Puebla, Mexico, from August 16th to 19th, 2016. It is sponsored by the
Association for Symbolic Logic (ASL), the Interest Group in Pure and
Applied Logics (IGPL), the The Association for Logic, Language and

Science (EATCS), the European Association for Computer Science Logic
(EACSL), the Sociedade Brasileira de Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade
Brasileira de Lógica (SBL).

PAPER SUBMISSION
Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular
interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas of
interest are: foundations of computing and programming; novel computation
models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; proof mining, type
theory, effective learnability; formal methods in software and hardware
development; logical approach to natural language and reasoning; logics of
programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects of information
organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection; foundations of
mathematics; philosophical logic. Proposed contributions should be in
English, and consist of a scholarly exposition accessible to the
non-specialist, including motivation, background, and comparison with
related works. They must not exceed 15 pages (in font 10 or higher), with
up to 5 additional pages for references and technical appendices. The
paper's main results must not be published or submitted for publication in
refereed venues, including journals and other scientific meetings. It is
expected that each accepted paper be presented at the meeting by one of its
authors. Papers must be submitted electronically at the WoLLIC 2016
EasyChair website. (Please go to
http://wollic.org/wollic2016/instructions.html for instructions.) A title
and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by Mar 14, 2016, and the
full paper by Mar 21, 2016 (firm date). Notifications are expected by Apr
22, 2016, and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 6, 2016
(firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2016, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's LNCS series (FoLLI subseries). In addition, abstracts will be
published in the Conference Report section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL
(Oxford U Press), and selected contributions will be published as a special
post-conference WoLLIC 2016 issue of a scientific journal (to be confirmed).
