                           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.


IJCAR'18 Special Issue of the Journal of Automated Reasoning:
-------------------------------------------------------------
The authors of a selection of the best IJCAR'18 papers will be invited
to produce an extended version of their paper for a special issue of
the Journal of Automated Reasoning.

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
IJCAR Conference: July 14-17th, 2018
FLoC Conference: July 6-19th, 2018

IMPORTANT NOTICE: due to very strict FLoC constraints, deadlines are SHARP!
