                             Call for Papers 
 
The 9th International Workshop on Automated Deduction in Geometry (ADG 2012)
                        Edinburgh, United Kingdom
                         September 17 - 19  2012
                 http://dream.inf.ed.ac.uk/events/adg2012


OVERVIEW

ADG is a forum to exchange ideas and views, to present research results and progress, 
and to demonstrate software tools at the intersection between geometry and automated 
deduction. The workshop is held every two years. The previous editions of ADG were held 
in Munich in 2010, Shanghai in 2008, Pontevedra in 2006, Gainesville in 2004, Hagenberg 
in 2002, Zurich in 2000, Beijing in 1998, and Toulouse in 1996. The 9th edition ADG 2012 
will be held in Edinburgh, UK, September 17 - 19, 2012. Note that the scope of the ADG 
2012 has been expanded to cover topics in dynamic geometry.

SCOPE

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):
* polynomial algebra, invariant and coordinate-free methods, probabilistic, 
   synthetic, and logic approaches, techniques for automated geometric reasoning 
   from discrete mathematics, combinatorics, and numerics;
* symbolic and numeric methods for geometric computation, geometric constraint solving, 
   automated generation/reasoning and manipulation with diagrams;
* design and implementation of geometry software, special-purpose tools, automated theorem 
   provers, experimental studies;
* applications of ADG to mechanics, geometric modelling, CAGD/CAD, computer vision, 
   robotics, and education.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

* We invite the following types of submissions:
   - Extended abstracts (or full papers) of maximum 20 pages 
   - Posters, each with an accompanying 1 page abstract to be submitted via EasyChair.
* The extended abstracts (or the introduction of the full papers) must address the following 
  aspects explicitly:
    - Problem: What is the problem/question/objective?
    - Motivation: Why do we work on the problem? What is the importance?
    - State of the Art: What has been done already on the problem?
    - Contribution: What is the main original contribution?
    - Main Idea: What is the main idea underlying the contribution?
* The submissions should follow the standard Springer LNCS Proceedings format.
* Electronic submission as PDF is required via EasyChair 
   (at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adg2012).
* If you have any problems with the submission of your paper, or questions concerning 
   ADG 2012 or EasyChair, please contact adg2012@xxxxxxxxxxxxx.

REFEREEING AND PUBLICATION DETAILS

* The submitted contributions will be subject to a summary review by the Program Committee, 
   bearing in mind that this first review is mainly for presentation, NOT for publication.
* Digital publication of the full papers accepted for presentation will be available at the workshop.
* The authors of full papers accepted for presentation at the workshop will be invited to 
   submit their full and/or revised papers for publication in a formal proceedings 
   of ADG 2012 after the workshop.
* The full papers (submitted after the meeting) will be formally reviewed by PC members and 
   external referees.
* All participants are encouraged to bring along posters on their geometric work (whether 
   presented at the workshop or not) for display during ADG 2012.
* The accepted full papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial 
   Intelligence (LNAI) series or Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
* The proceedings of ADG 1996, ADG 1998, ADG 2000, ADG 2002, and ADG 2004, ADG 2006, 
   and ADG 2010 appeared as LNAI 1360, LNAI 1669, LNAI 2061, LNAI 2930, LNAI 3763, 
   LNAI 4869, and LNCS 6877, respectively.

* Notification of acceptance:   July 30, 2012.
* Final paper submission:  September 1, 2012.
* Early registration:  August 1-20, 2012.
