                        FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

                            FroCoS 2017
  11th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
                           Brasilia, Brazil
                        September 25-29th, 2017

Submission Deadlines: 24th April 2017 (abstracts)
                      28th April 2017 (full papers)

  The 11th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
  (FroCoS 2017) will be held in Brasilia, Brazil, between September 25 to
  September 29, 2017. Its main goal is to disseminate and promote
  progress in research areas related to the development of techniques
  for the integration, combination, and modularization of formal
  systems together with their analysis.

  FroCoS 2017 will be co-located with the 26th International
  Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related
  Methods (TABLEAUX 2017) and the 8th International Conference on
  Interactive Theorem­Proving (ITP 2017). The local organization of
  all events will be organised  by Claudia Nalon (USB, Brazil),
  Daniele Nantes (UnB, Brazil), Elaine Pimentel (UFRN, Brazil) and
  João Marcos (UFRN, Brazil).

  In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation,
  program development and verification, artificial intelligence,
  knowledge representation, and automated reasoning, there is an
  obvious need for using specialized formalisms and inference systems
  for selected tasks. To be usable in practice, these specialized
  systems must be combined with each other and integrated into general
  purpose systems. This has led---in many research areas---to the
  development of techniques and methods for the combination and
  integration of dedicated formal systems, as well as for their
  modularization and analysis.

  The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
  (FroCoS) traditionally focusses on these types of research questions
  and activities. Like its predecessors, FroCoS 2017 seeks to offer a
  common forum for research in the general area of combination,
  modularization, and integration of systems, with emphasis on
  logic-based ones, and of their practical use.

  Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
    * combinations of logics (such as higher-order, first-order,
      temporal, modal, description or other non-classical logics);
    * combination and integration methods in SAT and SMT solving;
    * combination of decision procedures, satisfiability
      procedures, constraint solving techniques, or logical
    * combinations and modularity in ontologies;
    * integration of equational and other theories into deductive
    * hybrid methods for deduction, resolution and constraint
    * hybrid systems in knowledge representation and natural
      language semantics;
    * combined logics for distributed and multi-agent systems;
    * logical aspects of combining and modularizing programs and
    * integration of data structures into constraint logic
      programming and deduction;
    * combinations and modularity in term rewriting;
    * applications of methods and techniques to the verification and
      analysis of information systems.


  The proceedings of the symposium will be published in the
  Springer LNAI/LNCS series.

  The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing
  original work, written in English, not overlapping with published or
  simultaneously submitted work to a journal or conference with
  archival proceedings. Selection criteria include accuracy and
  originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and
  quality of presentation. The page limit in Springer LNCS style is 16

  Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be
  submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system at
  the following address:


  For each accepted paper, at least one of the authors is required to
  attend the symposium and present the work. Prospective authors must
  register a title and an abstract five days before the paper
  submission deadline. Further information about paper submissions is
  available at the conference website that can be found at the
  beginning of this call for papers.

  Proposals for Workshops and Tutorial sessions have been solicited
  in a separate call, which can be found at
