Call for Papers

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning, computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 21st LPAR will be held will be held in Maun, Botswana, at Cresta Riley's Hotel, 7-12th May 2017. The proceedings will be published by EasyChair Publications, in the EPiC Series in Computing. The volume will be open access and the authors will retain copyright.

Call for Papers

New results in the fields of computational logic and applications are welcome. Also welcome are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories and practices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Abduction and interpolation methods
  • Answer set programming
  • Automated reasoning
  • Constraint programming
  • Contextual reasoning
  • Decision procedures
  • Description logics
  • Foundations of security
  • Hardware verification
  • Implementations of logic
  • Inconsistency- and exception tolerant reasoning
  • Interactive theorem proving;
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning
  • Logic and computational complexity
  • Logic and databases
  • Logic and games
  • Logic and machine learning
  • Logic and the web
  • Logic and types
  • Logic in artificial intelligence
  • Logic of distributed systems
  • Logic of knowledge and belief
  • Logic programming
  • Logical aspects of concurrency
  • Logical foundations of programming
  • Modal and temporal logics
  • Model checking
  • Non-monotonic reasoning
  • Ontologies and large knowledge bases
  • Paraconsistent logics
  • Probabilistic and fuzzy reasoning
  • Program analysis
  • Rewriting
  • Satisfiability checking
  • Satisfiability modulo theories
  • Software verification
  • Specification using logic
  • Unification theory

Submission Details

Submissions of two kinds are welcome:

  • Regular papers that describe solid new research results. They can be up to 15 pages long in EasyChair style, including figures, but excluding references and appendices (that reviewers are not required to read).
  • Experimental and tool papers that describe implementations of systems, report ;experiments with implemented systems, or compare implemented systems. They can be up to 8 pages long in the EasyChair style.

Both types of papers must be electronically submitted in PDF via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lpar21. Authors must register a title and an abstract by the abstract submission deadline.
