  This conference is the 20th in a series of international meetings on
  Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods.

  In July 2011, the conference will be held in Bern, Switzerland.  The
  conference proceedings will be published in the Springer LNAI series as
  in the previous editions of the conference.

  See http://www.tableaux11.unibe.ch/ for more information on TABLEAUX
  2011, and http://i12www.ira.uka.de/TABLEAUX for information about
  the TABLEAUX conference series.


  Tableau methods are a convenient formalism for automating deduction
  in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic. Areas
  of application include verification of software and computer
  systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
  required inference engines, and system diagnosis. The conference
  brings together researchers interested in all aspects - theoretical
  foundations, implementation techniques, systems development and
  applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with tableaux and
  related methods.

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

    * 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, ...)
    * new calculi and methods for theorem proving in classical and
      non-classical logics (modal, description, intuitionistic, linear,
      temporal, many-valued...)
    * systems, tools, implementations and applications.

  As in previous years, TABLEAUX 2011 puts a special emphasis on
  applications. Papers describing applications of tableaux and related
  methods in areas such as hardware and software verification,
  semantic technologies, knowledge engineering, etc. are particularly

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


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

    A  Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or experimental
                        research, up to 15 pages)
    B  System descriptions (up to 5 pages)
    C  Short papers reporting work in progress (up to 5 pages)
    D  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.  For category B
  submissions a working implementation must exist and be available to
  the referees.  Accepted papers in these categories will be published in
  the conference proceedings.

  Submissions in category C will be reviewed by members of the program
  committee and a collection of the accepted papers in this category
  will be published as a Technical Report of the University of Bern.

  Tutorial submissions (Category D) 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. Tutorial proposals
  will be reviewed by members of the program committee.  Note that the
  deadline for tutorial proposals is  Monday, 10. Jan 2011.

  Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the


  TABLEAUX 2011 launches a Call for Workshop Proposal on specialised
  subjects in the range of the conference topics. We can accept up to
  three proposals.  The proposals are reviewed by members of the PC
  committee. The purpose of a workshop is to offer an opportunity of
  presenting novel ideas, ongoing research, and to discuss the state
  of the art of an area in a less formal but more focused way than the
  conference itself. It is also a good opportunity for young
  researchers to present their own work and to obtain feedback. The
  format of a workshop is left to the the organizers, but it is
  expected to contain significant time for discussion. The intended
  schedule is for one-day workshops.

  To submit a workshop proposal, please send a description of one or
  two pages to the PC chairs by Monday, 10. Jan 2011.
