GENERAL INFORMATION

  This conference is the 22nd in a series of international meetings
  on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods
  and will be held in Nancy, France, in September 16-19, 2013.

  See http://tableaux13.loria.fr for more information on TABLEAUX 2013,
  and http://i12www.ira.uka.de/TABLEAUX for information about the
  TABLEAUX conference series.

  TABLEAUX 2013 will be co-located with the 9th International Symposium
  on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCos 2013) held September 18-20,
  2013. A joint invited speaker and a joint session are planned.


TOPICS

  Tableaux methods offer a convenient set of formalisms for automating
  deduction in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic.
  Areas of application include verification of software and computer
  systems, data integration and data access, deductive databases, knowledge
  representation and its required inference engines, and system diagnosis.
  The conference intends to bring together researchers interested in all
  aspects - theoretical foundations, implementation techniques, system
  developments and applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with
  tableaux and related methods.

  Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

    * proof-theory in classical and non-classical logics (modal,
      temporal, description, intuitionistic, substructural, ...)
    * analytic tableaux for various logics (theory and applications)
    * related techniques and concepts, e.g., model checking and BDDs
    * related methods (model elimination, sequent calculi, connection
      method, resolution, ...)
    * new calculi and methods for theorem proving and verification
      in classical and non-classical logics
    * systems, tools, implementations and applications (provers,
      logical frameworks, model checkers, ...)
    * automated deduction and formal methods applied to logic,
      mathematics, software development, protocol verification,
      security, ...

  TABLEAUX 2013 also welcomes applications of formal methods with automated
  reasoning to real world examples. Papers including such applications of
  tableaux and related methods in areas such as, for example, hardware and
  software verification, knowledge engineering, semantic web, etc. are
  particularly invited. They should be tailored for the tableaux community
and should hence focus on the role of reasoning and logical aspects of the
  solution.

  One or more tutorials will be part of the Conference program.


PUBLICATION DETAILS

  It is planned that the proceedings of TABLEAUX 2013 will be
  published in the Springer LNCS/LNAI Series.

SUBMISSIONS

  The conference will include contributed papers, tutorials, system
  descriptions and invited lectures. Submissions are invited in three
  categories:

    A  Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or
       experimental research, up to 15 pages)

    B  System descriptions (up to 7 pages)

    C  Tutorials in all areas of analytic tableaux and related
       methods from academic research to applications
      (proposals up to 5 pages)

  Submissions in categories A and B will be reviewed by peers,
  typically members of the program committee. They must be
  unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Accepted
  papers in these categories will be published in the conference
  proceedings (within the LNAI series of Springer), which will be
  available at the conference. For category B submissions a working
  implementation must exist and be available to the referees.

  Tutorial submissions (Category C) may be at introductory,
  intermediate, or advanced levels. Novel topics and topics of broad
  interest are preferred. The submission should include the title,
  the author, the topic of the tutorial, its level, its relevance to
  conference topics, and a description of the interest and the
  scientific contents of the proposed tutorial, to be presented in a
  time frame of at most 3 hours. Tutorial proposals will be reviewed
  by members of the program committee.

  For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to
  attend the conference to present the paper. Prospective authors
  are required to register a title and an abstract a week before
  the paper submission deadline.

  Further information and instructions about submissions can be found
  on the conference website at http://tableaux13.loria.fr.

CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
------------------


  Workshop proposals on specialised subjects in the range of the conference
  topics are welcome. We can accept up to 3 proposals. They can focus on
specialized or broader areas and also on theoretical and/or applied topics.
  The format of a workshop is left to the organizers but typically TABLEAUX
workshops feature invited speakers and a number of contributed presentations
  and the intended schedule is for one-day workshops.

  The date for TABLEAUX workshops is Monday 16th September, 2013.

  Proposals should include:

  - Workshop title
  - Names and affiliations of the organizers
- Brief scientific description of the aims and scopes of the workshop, with
    an emphasis on the relevance for the Tableaux community.
  - Presentation of the proposed format and agenda.
  - Procedure for selecting papers and possibly participants. .
  - Expected number of participants and the potential invited speakers.
  - Plans for dissemination (for example, special issues of journals).

  To submit a workshop proposal, please send a description (up to 3 pages)
   to the PC chairs by  February 22, 2013.
  The proposals will be reviewed by the members of the PC committee.
