## LPAR-16 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 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 16th edition will be held in Dakar, Senegal. 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, 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. It is logical techniques that 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. ## TopicsNew 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
- Verification
- 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 the Web
- Ontologies and large knowledge bases
- Logic and databases
- Modal and temporal logics
- Program analysis
- Foundations of security
- Description logics
- Non-monotonic reasoning
- Specification using logics
- Logic in artificial intelligence
