CALL FOR PAPERS

   The 9th International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning, IJCAR 2018
            Oxford, UK, July 14-17, 2018. http://www.ijcar2018.org

               Part of The Federated Logic Conference, FLoC 2018,
             Oxford, UK, July 6-19, 2018.  http://www.floc2018.org

IJCAR is the premier international joint conference on all topics in automated 
reasoning. The IJCAR technical program will consist of presentations of 
high-quality original research papers, system descriptions, and invited talks. 

IJCAR 2018 takes place as part of FLoC 2018 and is the merger of leading events 
in automated reasoning: 

CADE (Conference on Automated Deduction), 
FroCoS (Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems) and 
TABLEAUX (Conference on Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods) 

Topics: 
------- 
IJCAR 2018 invites submissions related to all aspects of automated reasoning, 
including foundations, implementations, and applications. Original research 
papers and descriptions of working automated deduction systems are solicited. 

IJCAR topics include the following ones: 

- Logics of interest include: propositional, first-order, classical, 
  equational, higher-order, non-classical, constructive, modal, temporal, 
  many-valued, substructural, description, type theory, etc. 
- Methods of interest include: tableaux, sequent calculi, resolution, model-
  elimination, inverse method, paramodulation, term rewriting, induction, 
  unification, constraint solving, decision procedures, model generation, 
  model checking, semantic guidance, interactive theorem proving, logical 
  frameworks, AI-related methods for deductive systems, proof presentation, 
  automated theorem provers, combination of decision procedures, SAT and SMT 
  solving, etc. 
- Applications of interest include: verification, formal methods, program 
  analysis and synthesis, computer mathematics, declarative programming, 
  deductive databases, knowledge representation, etc. 

We welcome papers combining automated-reasoning formalisms & techniques and 
with those from other areas of CS and mathematics, including, e.g., computer 
algebra, machine learning, formal languages, formal verification, termination. 
In particular, high-quality conference papers on the topics of the IJCAR 2018 
affiliated workshops (http://ijcar2018.org/#assocev) are welcome. 

The proceedings of IJCAR 2018 will be published by Springer in the LNAI/LNCS 
series (www.springer.com/lncs). 

Submission details: 
------------------- 
Submission is electronic, through 
    https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ijcar2018. 
Authors are strongly encouraged to use LaTeX and the Springer "llncs" format, 
which can be obtained from 
    http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html 
We solicit two categories of submissions: 

REGULAR PAPERS. Submissions, not exceeding sixteen (16) pages including 
bibliography, should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess 
the merits and relevance of the contribution. For papers reporting experimental 
results, authors are strongly encouraged to make their data and software 
available with their submission for reproducibility. The PC will take 
availability of software and data into account when evaluating submissions. 
Submissions reporting on case studies in an industrial context are strongly 
invited, and should describe details, weaknesses and strength in sufficient 
depth. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or 
submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not 
allowed. 

SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS. Submissions, not exceeding eight (8) pages including 
bibliography, should describe the implemented tool and its novel features. One 
author is expected to be able to perform a demonstration on demand to accompany 
a tool presentation. Papers describing tools that have already been presented 
in other conferences before will be accepted only if significant and clear 
enhancements to the tool are reported and implemented. 

Best paper award: 
----------------- 
IJCAR 2018 will recognize the most outstanding submission with a best paper 
award at the conference. 

Invited speakers: 
----------------- 
Invited Speakers will be announced later on. 

Important dates (provisional): 
------------------------------ 
Abstract submission: January 22nd 2018 
Paper submission: January 29th 2018 
Notification: March 29th, 2018 
Final version of papers due: April 23rd, 2018
