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-fifth WoLLIC will be held at the
Departamento de Matemáticas of the Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá,
Colombia, from July 24th to 27th, 2018. 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 Information (FoLLI),
the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), the
European Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), ACM Special
Interest Group on Logic and Computation (ACM-SIGLOG) (TBC), the Sociedade
Brasileira de Computação (SBC), and the Sociedade Brasileira de Lógica

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; philosophy of mathematics; philosophical logic; philosophy of
language. 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. Articles should
be written in the LaTeX format of LNCS by Springer (see authors
instructions at http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0).
They must not exceed 12 pages, 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 The paper's main results must not be published or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. (At least one author is required to
pay the registration fee before granting that the paper will be published
in the proceedings.) Papers must be submitted electronically at the WoLLIC
2018 EasyChair website. (Please go to http://wollic.org/wollic2018/i
nstructions.html for instructions.) A title and single-paragraph abstract
should be submitted by Mar 11, 2018, and the full paper by Mar 18, 2018
(firm date). Notifications are expected by Apr 15, 2018, and final papers
for the proceedings will be due by Apr 22, 2018 (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2018, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's LNCS series. In addition, abstracts will be published in the
Conference Report section of the Logic Journal of the IGPL, and selected
contributions will be published (after a new round of reviewing) as a
special post-conference WoLLIC 2018 issue of a scientific journal (to be

As a tribute to the memory and legacy of the late Raymond Smullyan, who
passed away in February 2017, there will be a special session with a
screening of the documentary film "This Film Needs No Title: A Portrait of
Raymond Smullyan" (Dir. Tao Ruspoli, 2006, 30min), as well as short
testimonies by experts.

ASL sponsorship of WoLLIC 2018 will permit ASL student members to apply for
a modest travel grant (deadline: May 1st, 2018). See
