[PVS] Call for FLoC 2010 Workshops




In 2010, the ACL2 Workshop and TPHOLs conference will be combining to
form the ITP ("Interactive Theorem Proving") conference.  ITP 2010
will also be part of the FLoC combination of conferences and
workshops, to be held in Edinburgh in July 2010.

FLoC has now issued a call for workshops to be part of the combination
(see attached), and importantly:

   Each workshop proposal must indicate one sponsoring conference among
   the participating conferences.

I am the workshop chair for ITP, and I would like to encourage
workshop applications that mention ITP as their "sponsor".
Submissions will be handled via Easychair

   http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=floc10cfw

but I am happy to discuss possible workshop applications in advance if
there is anything that is unclear.

Michael.


THE 2010 FEDERATED LOGIC CONFERENCE (FLoC 2010)
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
http://www.floc-conference.org/
  
Call For Workshop Proposals

* The fifth Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'10), will be 9-21 July, 2010
hosted by the University of Edinburgh. The following seven conferences will 
participate in FLoC:

  - International Conference on Computer-Aided Verification (CAV).
       Workshop Chair:  Tomas Vojnar <vojnar@fit.vutbr.cz> . 
  - International Conference on Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP).
       Workshop Chair: Michael Norrish <Michael.Norrish@nicta.com.au> .
  - International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP).
       Workshop Chair: Veronica Dahl <veronica@cs.sfu.ca> .
  - International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning (IJCAR).
       Workshop Chair:  Aaron Stump <astump@cs.uiowa.edu> .
  - IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS).
       Workshop Co-Chairs: Adriana Compagnoni <abc@cs.stevens.edu>  and
                                      Maribel Fernandez <Maribel.Fernandez@kcl.ac.uk> .                 
  - International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications (RTA).

  - International Conference on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability
    Testing (SAT).
       Workshop Chair:  Carsten Sinz <sinz@ira.uka.de>
    
* The organizers have made arrangements to facilitate the running of
  pre-, post-, and mid-FLoC workshops. Each workshop will
  have its own registration, with uniform FLoC workshop
  fees.  It is not necessary to register for FLoC in
  order to attend workshops. Meeting rooms and accommodations will be
  reserved by the university in the center of Edinburgh.
  - Pre-FLoC workshops:  Friday & Saturday, July 9-10
  - Mid-FLoC workshops:  Wednesday & Thursday, July 14-15
  - Post-FLoC workshops:  Tuesday & Wednesday, July 20, 21 .
  
* Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
  workshops on topics relating logic, broadly understood, applied to
  computer science. Each workshop proposal must indicate one sponsoring
  conference among the participating conferences.  (It is suggested
  that prospective workshop organizers contact the relevant conference 
  Workshop Chair before submitting a proposal.) Workshops will have to be
  financially self-supporting, unless the sponsoring conference
  accepts financial responsibility. The FLoC Organizing Committee will 
  determine the final list of accepted workshops based on the recommendations 
  from the Workshop Chairs of the sponsoring conferences and subject to 
  the availability of space and facilities
  
* Proposals should consist of two parts. First, a short scientific
  justification of the proposed topic, its significance, and the
  particular benefits of the workshop to the community, as well as a list of
  previous or related workshops (if relevant). A second, organizational  part
  should include:
  - contact information of the workshop organizers. 
  - proposed sponsoring conference. 
  - estimate of the audience size.
  - proposed format and agenda  (for example, demo sessions, tutorials, etc.)
  - potential invited speakers.
  - procedures for selecting papers and participants.
  - plans for dissemination, if any (for example, special issues of journals) .
  - duration (which may vary from one day to two days) and
    preferred period. 
  - special technical or AV needs.
  
* Workshops are strongly encouraged to find external financial support.
   This will be wholly their responsibility.  Modest funding, based upon 
   numbers of registrants, minus FLoC local expenses, will be made available
   to each workshop.

 * Proposals are due by July 31, 2009.  Organizers will be notified by
    September 15, 2009. Proposals should be submitted electronically
    to EasyChair at the following address (which opens June 18, 2009):    
    
    http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=floc10cfw
    
    (Clearly indicate at the top of the proposal the relevant conference)
