                    FTP'07 - Call for Papers

                    International Workshop on
                   First-Order Theorem Proving

                    University of Liverpool
                    Liverpool, England (UK)

                     September 12-13, 2007


   The series of FTP workshops focusses on all aspects of theorem
   proving in first-order logic. It aims to be a forum for the
   presentation of original work, and for the discussion of work in

   Relevant topics for the workshop include (but are not limited to)

   * theorem proving in first-order classical, many-valued, and modal
     logics, including:
     - satisfiability in propositional logic,
     - satisfiability modulo theories,
     - decision procedures,
     - constraint reasoning,
     - equational reasoning,
     - term rewriting,
     - resolution
     - paramodulation/superposition;

   * strategies and complexity of theorem proving procedures;

   * applications of first-order theorem proving to:
     - program verification,
     - model checking,
     - artificial intelligence,
     - mathematics,
     - computational linguistics.

Previous editions of FTP took place in Schloss Hagenberg, Austria
(1997); Vienna, Austria (1998); St Andrews, Scotland (2000); as part
of IJCAR in Siena, Italy (2001); Valencia, Spain (2003); as part of
IJCAR in Cork, Ireland (2004); and Koblenz, Germany (2005).  For more

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

   * Extended abstracts of 5-10 pages describing original results,
     work in progress, or future directions of research.

   * System descriptions of up to 5 pages, describing new systems or
     significant upgrades of existing ones, especially including
     experiments; sources and manuals of systems will have to be
     freely available online.

   Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX and the standard article
   class/style file (10pt or 11pt).  The first page should contain the
   title, the authors' names, e-mail and postal addresses.

   Submissions should be made via Easychair at the following address:


   Submissions will be reviewed by at least two referees, possibly
   more, and will be evaluated on their significance, technical merit,
   and relevance to the workshop.

   Accepted submissions will be published as a technical report of the
   University of Liverpool and will be distribted at the workshop.
   They will also be available on the web.

   As for the previous editions of FTP, a journal special issue is
   planned after the workshop.  The submission will be open to papers
   on First-Order Theorem Proving.
