                       FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

                           TABLEAUX 2017
     26th International Conference on Automated Reasoning with
               Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods
                  University of Brasília, Brazil
                       September 26-29, 2017

                 Submission Deadline: 25 Apr 2017

                  http://tableaux2017.cic.unb.br/


GENERAL INFORMATION
  TABLEAUX is the main international conference at which research
  on all aspects, theoretical foundations, implementation techniques,
  systems development and applications, of the mechanization of
  tableau-based reasoning and related methods is presented. The
  conference will be held in Brasília from 26-29 September 2017.

  TABLEAUX 2017 will be co-located with both the 11th International
  Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2017) and the
  8th International Conference on Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP
  2017).

TOPICS
  Tableau methods offer a convenient and flexible set of tools for
  automated reasoning in classical logic, extensions of classical
  logic, and a large number of non-classical logics. For large groups
  of logics, tableau methods can be generated automatically.  Areas
  of application include verification of software and computer
  systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
  required inference engines, teaching, and system diagnosis.

  Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    * tableau methods for classical and non-classical logics
      (including first-order, higher-order, modal, temporal,
      description, hybrid, intuitionistic, substructural,
      relevance, non-monotonic logics) and their proof-theoretic
      foundations;
    * related methods (SMT, model elimination, model checking,
      connection methods, resolution, BDDs, translation approaches);
    * sequent calculi and natural deduction calculi for classical
      and non-classical logics, as tools for proof search and proof
      representation;
    * flexible, easily extendable, light weight methods for theorem
      proving;
    * novel types of calculi for theorem proving and verification
      in classical and non-classical logics;
    * systems, tools, implementations, empirical evaluations and
      applications (provers, logical frameworks, model checkers, ...);
    * implementation techniques (data structures, efficient
      algorithms, performance measurement, extensibility, ...);
    * extensions of tableau procedures with conflict-driven
      learning, generation of proofs; compact (or humanly readable)
      representation of proofs;
    * decision procedures, theoretically optimal procedures;
    * applications of automated deduction to mathematics, software
      development, verification, deductive and temporal
      databases, knowledge representation, ontologies, fault
      diagnosis or teaching.

  We also welcome papers describing applications of tableau
  procedures to real world examples. Such papers should be tailored
  to the tableau community and should focus on the role of
  reasoning, and logical aspects of the solution.

WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
  Proposals for Workshops and Tutorial sessions have been solicited
  in a separate call, which can be found at
    http://tableaux2017.cic.unb.br/#cfw.

PUBLICATION DETAILS
  The conference proceedings will published in the Springer
  LNAI/LNCS series, as in previous editions.

SUBMISSIONS
  Submissions are invited in two categories:

    A  Research papers, which describe original theoretical
       research, original algorithms, or applications, with length
       up to 15 pages.
    B  System descriptions, with length up to 9 pages.

  Submissions will be reviewed by the PC, possibly with the help of
  external reviewers, taking into account readability, relevance
  and originality.

  For category A, theoretical results and algorithms must be
  original, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions
  will be reviewed taking into account correctness, theoretical
  elegance, and possible implementability.

  For category B submissions, a working implementation must be
  accessible via the internet, which includes sources. The aim of a
  system description is to make the system available in such a way
  that users can use it, understand it, and build on it.

  Accepted papers in both categories will be published in the
  conference proceedings. Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the
  llncs style and must be submitted electronically as PDF files via
  the EasyChair system:
  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tableaux2017.

  For all accepted papers at least one author is required to attend
  the conference and present the paper. A paper title and a short
  abstract of about 100 words must be submitted before the paper
  submission deadline. Further information about paper submissions
  will be made available at the conference website. Formatting
  instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained via
  http://www.springer.com/lncs.

BEST PAPER AWARD
  The TABLEAUX 2017 Best Paper Award will be presented to the best
  submission nominated and chosen by the Program Committee among
  the accepted papers. The eligibility criteria will place emphasis
  on the originality and significance of the contribution, but
  readability and the overall technical quality, including correctness
  and completeness of results, will be also considered. The TABLEAUX
  Best Paper Award was established in 2015 and it is a permanent
  initiative of TABLEAUX.
