[PVS] CFP: 6th workshop on "Methods for Modalities" (M4M-6)

                     FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
       6th Workshop on "Methods for Modalities" (M4M-6)
                     Copenhagen, Denmark
                     November 12-14, 2009

The workshop "Methods for Modalities" (M4M) aims to bring together
researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods
and tools based on modal logics. Here the term "modal logics" is
conceived broadly, including temporal logic, description logic,
guarded fragments, conditional logic, temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will feature
a number of invited talks by leading scientists, research
presentations aimed at highlighting new developments, and submissions
of system demonstrations.

We strongly encourage young researchers and students to submit papers,
especially for experimental and prototypical software tools which are
related to modal logics.

More information about the previous editions can be found at


M4M-6 will be preceded by a two-day mini-course aimed at preparing
PhD students and other researchers for participation in the workshop.
The mini-course is associated with the FIRST research school

Paper Submissions
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three categories.

- Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original research.
