DEADLINE: 27 March 2006

Advances in Modal Logic is an initiative aimed at presenting

    o theorem proving for modal logics
-  history of modal logic
-  philosophy of modal logic
-  specific instances of modal logic
    o description logicsAdvances in Modal Logic
    o dynamic logics and other process logics
    o epistemic and deontic logics
    o modal logics for agent-based systems
    o modal logic and game theory
    o modal logic and grammar formalisms
    o provability and interpretability logics
    o spatial and temporal logics
-  theoretical aspects of modal logic
    o algebraic and coalgebraic perspective on modal logic
    o completeness and canonicity
    o correspondence and duality theory

INVITED SPEAKERS
Invited speakers will include:

  o Renate Schmidt (Manchester, UK)
  o Valentin Shehtman (Moscow, Russia)

  o Alberto Zanardo (Padua, Italy)

PAPER SUBMISSION
The Proceedings of AiML 2006 will be published by College Publications
www.dcs.kcl.ac.uk/kcl-publications/
In a change from previous AiMLs, the proceedings will be made available
at the meeting.  Authors are invited to submit a full paper (not just an
abstract) of at most 15 pages plus optionally a technical appendix of up
to 5 pages, together with a plain-text abstract of say 100-200 words.
To be considered, submissions must be received no later than 27 March 2006.
Papers must be submitted as .ps or .pdf files. The first page should
include title, names of authors, the co-ordinates of the corresponding
author, and some keywords describing the topic of the paper. More precise
details will be available at www.itee.uq.edu.au/~aiml06/

To appear in the proceedings, papers must be prepared in LaTeX using the
style files to be provided at www.itee.uq.edu.au/~aiml06/. At least one
author of each accepted paper must register for and attend the conference
to present the paper.

CONFERENCE LOCATION
Advances in Modal Logic 2006 will be held at Australis Noosa Lakes
Conference Centre located at Noosaville, Noosa, Sunshine Coast,
Queensland.

The Sunshine Coast's white surf beaches stretch for about forty miles,
broken only by an occasional headland or the clear water of a river
estuary. Coastal townships like Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore,
Coolum and Noosa are synonymous with the traditional Australian beach
vacation.  In the green, subtropical hills behind the Sunshine Coast,
among the pineapple and sugar cane farms, are country hamlets. Old
pubs serve excellent counter lunches on open verandas that overlook
green valleys. Painters, potters and other artisans are drawn here by
the tranquillity, the easy pace and the natural beauty.

Noosa and Noosa National Park are legendary in Australia. The
protected cove beach virtually guarantees perfect surf year round and
the stroll around the headland through the National Park rewards you
with spectacular seascapes. Hastings Street, the hub of Noosa, is a
mecca for designer label shoppers and discerning diners.
