FroCoS 2017
11th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
Brasilia, Brazil
September 25-29th, 2017

Submission Deadlines: 24th April 2017 (abstracts)

The 11th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
(FroCoS 2017) will be held in Brasilia, Brazil, between September 25 to
September 29, 2017. Its main goal is to disseminate and promote
progress in research areas related to the development of techniques
for the integration, combination, and modularization of formal
systems together with their analysis.

FroCoS 2017 will be co-located with the 26th International
Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related
Methods (TABLEAUX 2017) and the 8th International Conference on
Interactive TheoremProving (ITP 2017). The local organization of
all events will be organised by Claudia Nalon (USB, Brazil),
Daniele Nantes (UnB, Brazil), Elaine Pimentel (UFRN, Brazil) and
João Marcos (UFRN, Brazil).

In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation,
program development and verification, artificial intelligence,
knowledge representation, and automated reasoning, there is an
obvious need for using specialized formalisms and inference systems
for selected tasks. To be usable in practice, these specialized
systems must be combined with each other and integrated into general
purpose systems. This has led---in many research areas---to the
development of techniques and methods for the combination and
integration of dedicated formal systems, as well as for their
modularization and analysis.

The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
(FroCoS) traditionally focusses on these types of research questions
and activities. Like its predecessors, FroCoS 2017 seeks to offer a
common forum for research in the general area of combination,
modularization, and integration of systems, with emphasis on
logic-based ones, and of their practical use.

Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* combinations of logics (such as higher-order, first-order,
temporal, modal, description or other non-classical logics);
* combination and integration methods in SAT and SMT solving;
* combination of decision procedures, satisfiability
procedures, constraint solving techniques, or logical
* combinations and modularity in ontologies;
* integration of equational and other theories into deductive
* hybrid methods for deduction, resolution and constraint
* hybrid systems in knowledge representation and natural
language semantics;
* combined logics for distributed and multi-agent systems;
* logical aspects of combining and modularizing programs and
* integration of data structures into constraint logic
programming and deduction;
* combinations and modularity in term rewriting;
* applications of methods and techniques to the verification and
analysis of information systems.


The proceedings of the symposium will be published in the
Springer LNAI/LNCS series.

The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing
original work, written in English, not overlapping with published or
simultaneously submitted work to a journal or conference with
archival proceedings. Selection criteria include accuracy and
originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and
quality of presentation. The page limit in Springer LNCS style is 16

Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be
submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system at
the following address:

For each accepted paper, at least one of the authors is required to
attend the symposium and present the work. Prospective authors must
register a title and an abstract five days before the paper
submission deadline. Further information about paper submissions is
available at the conference website that can be found at the
beginning of this call for papers.

Proposals for Workshops and Tutorial sessions have been solicited
in a separate call, which can be found at

24th April 2017: Abstract submission deadline
28th April 2017: Full paper submission deadline
9th June 2017: Author notification
23rd June 2017: Camera-ready version due
