AiML-2008 is the seventh conference in the series.

TOPICS
We invite submission on all aspects of modal logics, including
the following:

- history of modal logic
- philosophy of modal logic
- applications of modal logic
- computational aspects of modal logic
   + complexity and decidability of modal and temporal logics
   + modal and temporal logic programming
   + model checking
   + theorem proving for modal logics
- theoretical aspects of modal logic
   + algebraic  and categorical perspectives on modal logic
   + coalgebraic modal logic
   + completeness and canonicity
   + correspondence and duality theory
   + many-dimensional modal logics
   + modal fixed point logics
   + model theory of modal logic
   + proof theory of modal logic
- specific instances and variations of modal logic
   + description logics
   + dynamic logics and other process logics
   + epistemic and deontic logics
   + modal logics for agent-based systems
   + modal logic and game theory
   + modal logic and grammar formalisms
   + provability and interpretability logics
   + spatial and temporal logics
   + hybrid logic
   + intuitionistic logic
   + monotonic modal logic
   + substructural logic

Papers on related subjects will also be considered.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
In a change from previous AiML's, there will be two types of paper:

(1)  Full papers for publication and presentation at the conference.
(2)  Abstracts for short presentation only.

Both types of  paper should be submitted electronically using the
submission page at

              http://www.easychair.org/AiML08/

The online submission system is now open. The submission deadline
is 31 March 2008.

(1) FULL PAPERS
These will be published by College Publications

              http://www.collegepublications.co.uk

in a volume to be made available at the meeting. Authors are invited to
submit for review a full paper, not submitted elsewhere.  It should be
at most 15 pages plus optionally a technical appendix of up to 5 pages,
together with a plain-text abstract of say 100-200 words.

To appear in the conference volume, papers must be prepared in LaTeX
using the style files to be provided at   http://aiml08.loria.fr . At
least one author of each accepted paper must register for and attend the
conference to present the paper.

(2) ABSTRACTS
These should at most 5 pages.  They may describe preliminary
results, work in progress etc., and will be subject to light review.
They may be made available at the conference, and authors should
indicate if they would like to make a short presentation of their
abstract of up to 15 minutes.
