AiML-2012:  FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

9-TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ADVANCES IN MODAL LOGIC
COPENHAGEN, 22-25 AUGUST, 2012
 
          http://hylocore.ruc.dk/aiml2012.html

Advances in Modal Logic is an initiative aimed at presenting
the state of the art in modal logic and its various applications. The
initiative consists of a conference series together with volumes based on
the conferences. Information about the AiML series can be obtained at
http://www.aiml.net. AiML-2012 is the ninth conference in the series.

TOPICS
We invite submission on all aspects of modal logic, including:

- history of modal logic
- philosophy of modal logic
- applications of modal logic
- computational aspects of modal logic (complexity and decidability of 
     modal and temporal logics, modal and temporal logic programming, 
     model checking, model generation, theorem proving for modal logics)
- theoretical aspects of modal logic (algebraic/categorical perspectives 
     on modal logic, coalgebraic modal logic, completeness and canonicity,
     correspondence and duality theory, many-dimensional modal logics, 
     modal fixed point logics, model theory of modal logic, proof theory 
     of modal logic)
- specific instances and variations of modal logic (description logics,
     modal logics over non-boolean bases, dynamic logics and other process 
     logics, epistemic and deontic logics, modal logics for agent-based 
     systems, modal logic and game theory, modal logic and grammar 
     formalisms, provability and interpretability logics, spatial and 
     temporal logics, hybrid logic, intuitionistic logic, substructural 
     logics, computationally light fragments of all such logics)

Papers on related subjects will also be considered.

CONFERENCE LOCATION
Advances in Modal Logic 2012 will be held at
the IDA conference centre in downtown Copenhagen:

http://ida.dk/sites/moedecenter/english/Sider/EnglishForside.aspx

This is in easy walking distance from Copenhagen Central Station and a 
number of reasonably priced hotels.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
There will be two types of submissions to AiML-2012: (1) Full papers 
for publication in the proceedings and presentation at the
conference. (2) Abstracts for short presentation only. Both types of 
papers should be submitted electronically using the EasyChair submission 
page at

           http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aiml2012

At least one author of each accepted paper of abstract must register for, 
and attend, the conference to present his or her work.

(1) FULL PAPERS. Authors are invited to submit, for presentation at the conference 
and publication in the proceedings, full papers reporting on original research
and not submitted elsewhere. The proceedings of AiML'2012 will be published
by College Publications (http://www.collegepublications.co.uk) in a volume 
to be made available at the conference. The submissions should be at 
most 15 pages, with an optional technical appendix of up to 5 pages, together 
with a plain-text abstract of 100-200 words. The submissions must be typeset in 
LaTeX, using a style file and template that will be provided on the AiML'2012 
website.

(2) ABSTRACTS. These should be at most 5 pages. They may describe preliminary 
results, work in progress etc., and will be subject to light reviewing. The 
accepted abstracts will be made available at the conference, and the authors will
have the opportunity to make short presentations (of up to 15 minutes) on
them.

SPECIAL SESSION ON HYBRID LOGIC. Hybrid logic is an extension of modal logic 
allowing to refer explicitly to states of the model in the syntax of formulas. 
There will be a special session of AiML devoted to papers on hybrid logic. 
The scope of the special session is standard hybrid-logical machinery like 
nominals, satisfaction operators, and the downarrow binder, but also other 
extensions of modal logic can be considered. 

SPECIAL SESSION IN HONOUR OF LARISA MAKSIMOVA. There will be a 
special session of AiML devoted to papers and talks in honour of Larisa 
Maksimova, in recognition of her many outstanding contributions to modal 
logic.

SPECIAL SESSION ON MODALITIES FOR TYPES. Recent years have witnessed 
significant growth of interest in constructive type-theoretical modalities, in particular 
modalities ensuring productivity and type safety of (co-)recursive definitions in 
reactive programming. Some earlier examples include the use of modalities for staged 
computation, metaprogramming or in computational lambda-calculus. In order to boost 
interaction between programming, type-theoretical and modal communities, AiML 2012 
will host a special session on these topics. Papers for this session should be 
submitted to the EasyChair site along with others.

Papers for the special sessions should be submitted to the EasyChair site along with
others.
