CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
METHODS FOR MODALITIES 2 (M4M-2)
Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
University of Amsterdam
November 29-30, 2001
DEADLINE: October 12, 2001
The workshop Methods for Modalities (M4M) aims to bring together
researchers interested in developing proof tools and reasoning methods for
modal logic broadly conceived, including description logic, hybrid logics,
feature logic, temporal logic, etc.
To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will be centered
around a number of long presentations by leading researchers; these
presentations aim to provide both the general background and inside
information in a number of key areas. To complement these, we are inviting
submissions of short, focussed presentations aimed at highlighting new
developments and applications, and submissions of system demonstrations.
M4M-2 is the second installment of this bi-anual workshop series.
We invite three kinds of submissions:
A. Research papers on proof tools and reasoning methods for modal logic as
well as their applications. Submissions in this category need not be
unpublished work; they can be up to 10 A4 size pages.
B. System descriptions can be up to 4 A4 size pages, they should focus on
actual implementations explaining system architecture issues and
specific implementation techniques. Every system description should be
accompanied by a system demo at M4M.
C. Application descriptions can be up to 6 A4 size pages, they should
focus on experieces of using modal-like languages to solve specific
real-world tasks. A description of the problem should be given,
together with an explanation of how modal like inference systems were
used to tackle/analyse it. If available, demos of the final
product/solution can be organized during M4M.
The primary means of submission will be electronic, in PostScript or PDF
format. Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following people have agreed to give long presentations:
* Ed Brinksma (on applications of formal methods)
* Marta Cialdea Mayer (on quantified modal logic and tableaux methods)
* Enrico Franconi (on tools for knowledge engineering)
* Joe Halpern (to be announced)
* Fabio Massacci (on testing of automated deduction systems)
* Wolfgang Thomas (on automata theory and model checking)
In addition, there will be demonstration sessions, and short presentations
of contributed papers.
