The 18th International Conference on
Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning
Merida, Venezuela - March 11-15, 2012
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 18th LPAR will be held in Merida, Venezuela.
Logic is a fundamental organizing principle in nearly all areas in Computer Science. It runs a multifaceted gamut from the foundational to the applied. At one extreme, it underlies computability and complexity theory and the formal semantics of programming languages. At the other extreme, it drives billions of gates every day in the digital circuits of processors of all kinds. Logic is in itself a powerful programming paradigm, but it is also the quintessential specification language for anything ranging from real-time critical systems to networked infrastructures. Logical techniques link implementation and specification through formal methods such as automated theorem proving and model checking. Logic is also the stuff of knowledge representation and artificial intelligence. Because of its ubiquity, logic has acquired a central role in Computer Science education.
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:
Automated reasoning
Interactive theorem proving and proof assistants
Model checking
Implementations of logic
Satisfiability modulo theories
Rewriting and unification
Logic programming
Satisfiability checking
Constraint programming
Decision procedures
Logic and games
Logic and the Web
Ontologies and large knowledge bases
Logic and databases
Modal and temporal logics
Program analysis
Foundations of security
Description logics
Non-monotonic reasoning
Uncertainty reasoning
Logics for vague and inconsistent data
Specification using logic
Logic in artificial intelligence
Logic and types
Logical foundations of programming
Logical aspects of concurrency
Logic and computational complexity
Knowledge representation and reasoning
Logic of distributed systems

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 LNCS style, including figures and references, but excluding 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 LNCS style.
Both types of papers can be electronically submitted in PDF via EasyChair. Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract a week before the paper submission deadline (see below).
We plan to publish the LPAR proceedings as part of Springer ARCoSS (Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science) subseries of LNCS.
Authors of accepted papers are required to ensure that at least one of them will be present at the conference.
