The 14th IWIL has been resurreced in 2023 and will take place with LPAR-24 in Manizales, Colombia.

Due to the Corona virus crisis, LPAR-23 and hence the 14th IWIL have been cancelled as physical events. IWIL will return for LPAR-24, tentatively scheduled for January 2021 in Tobago. Please note that the 7th Workshop on Practical Aspects of Automated Reasoning covers similar topics to IWIL and will be held as an online event. The deadline for abstracts is May 2nd, for full papers May 9th.

General Information

The 14th International Workshop on the Implementation of Logics will be held in May 2020 in conjunction with the 23rd International Conference on Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning in Alicante, Spain.

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.

Important Dates

Paper/Abstract submission deadline: April 12th. 2020
Notification of acceptance: April 30th. 2020
Camera-ready paper versions due: May 15th, 2020
Workshop: May 22nd, 2020


Researchers interested in participating are invited to submit a position statement (2 pages), a short paper (up to 5 pages), or a full papers (up to 15 pages) via the EasyChair page for IWIL-2020.

Submissions will be refereed by the program committee, which will select a balanced program of high-quality contributions.

Submissions should be in standard-conforming PDF. Final versions will be required to be submitted in LaTeX using the easychair.cls class The final proceedings will be published as a volume of Kalpa Publications in Computing.
