FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

26th EACSL Annual Conference on Computer Science Logic CSL2017
August 20 -- 24, 2017, Stockholm, Sweden
https://www.csl17.conf.kth.se

AIM AND SCOPE

Computer Science Logic (CSL) is the annual conference of the European Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL). It is an interdisciplinary conference, spanning across both basic and application oriented research in mathematical logic and computer science and is intended for computer scientists whose research involves logic, as well as for logicians working on issues essential for computer science.

CSL2017 is the 26th EACSL annual conference. It will be co-organised by Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and hosted by Stockholm University. CSL2017 will be co-located with, and immediately preceded by, the Logic Colloquium 2017 (LC2017). There will be a joint session of CSL2017 and LC2017 in the morning of August 20, as well as CSL-affiliated workshops during August 25-26.

SUBMISSIONS

---------------------
The CSL2017 conference proceedings will be published in Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs).

Authors are invited to submit contributed papers of no more than 15 pages in LIPIcs style (including references), presenting not previously published work, fitting the scope of the conference. The LIPIcs style files and instructions for authors can be found here: https://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics/instructions-for-authors

The submission of contributed papers will be in two stages:
* abstracts, due by March 24, 2017 (AoE);
* full papers, due by March 31, 2017 (AoE).

The submissions must be done via the EasyChair page for the conference:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=csl2017.

Submitted papers must be in English and must provide sufficient detail to allow the Programme Committee to assess the merits of the paper. Full proofs may appear in a clearly marked technical appendix which will be read at the reviewers' discretion. Authors are strongly encouraged to include a well written introduction which is directed at all members of the PC.

Papers may not be submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. The PC chairs should be informed of closely related work submitted to a conference or a journal. Papers authored or co-authored by members of the PC are not allowed.

In addition, there will be an opportunity for short oral presentations at the conference. Abstracts for such oral presentations must be submitted through the Easychair submission webpage, under the category ``short presentations'', by June 4, 2017. They will not be included in the proceedings.
