Awasa Hill
13th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics

General Information

The 13th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics will be held in November 2018 in conjunction with the 22th International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning, at the Haile Resort in Awassa, Ethiopia.

We are looking for contributions describing implementation techniques for and implementations of automated reasoning programs, theorem provers for various logics, logic programming systems, and related technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Propositional logic and decision procedures, including SMT
  • First-order and higher order logics
  • Non-classical logics, including modal, temporal, description, non-monotonic reasoning
  • Formal foundations for efficient implementation of logics
  • Data structures and algorithms for the efficient representation and processing of logical concepts
  • Proof/model search organization and heuristics for logical reasoning systems
  • Data analysis and machine learning approaches to search control
  • Techniques for proof/model search visualization and analysis
  • Practical constraint handling
  • Reasoning with ontologies and other large theories
  • Implementation of efficient theorem provers and model finders for different logics
  • System descriptions of logical reasoning systems
  • Issues of reliability, witness generation, and witness verification
  • Evaluation and benchmarking of provers and other logic-based systems
  • I/O standards and communication between reasoning systems

We are particularly interested in contributions that help the community to understand how to build useful and powerful reasoning systems, and how to apply them in practice.

Invited speaker

Margus Veanes, Microsoft Research: Research in RiSE at MSR

I will first give a brief overview of the research projects that are taking place in the RiSE group at MSR in Redmond. The focus will be on those projects that are related to the core topic of the workshop: applications of logical inference. I will talk more in detail about some of the projects that I am more familiar with.

Full program

The full program is now available at the LPAR/IWIL smart site.
