Provisional Call for Papers

LICS 2017 will be hosted in Reykjavik during 20-23 June 2017.

The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and practical topics in computer science that relate to logic, broadly construed. We invite submissions on topics that fit under that rubric. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

automata theory, automated deduction, categorical models and logics, concurrency and distributed computation, constraint programming, constructive mathematics, database theory, decision procedures, description logics, domain theory, finite model theory, formal aspects of program analysis, formal methods, foundations of computability, games and logic, higher-order logic, lambda and combinatory calculi, linear logic, logic in artificial intelligence, logic programming, logical aspects of bioinformatics, logical aspects of computational complexity, logical aspects of quantum computation, logical frameworks, logics of programs, modal and temporal logics, model checking, probabilistic systems, process calculi, programming language semantics, proof theory, real-time systems, reasoning about security and privacy, rewriting, type systems and type theory, and verification.

Instructions to Authors

Authors are required to submit a paper title and a short abstract of about 100 words in advance of submitting the extended abstract of the paper. The exact deadline time on these dates is given by anywhere on earth (AoE).
Titles and Short Abstracts Due 3 January 2017
Full Papers Due 9 January 2017
Author Feedback/Rebuttal Period 28 February – 4 March 2017
Author Notification 21 March 2017
Final Versions Due for Proceedings 18 April 2017
Early Registration Deadline TBC 2017
Conference 20–23 June 2017

Deadlines are firm; late submissions will not be considered. All submissions will be electronic via

The format for submissions will be announced in due course.

The extended abstract must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the conference and to computer science, all phrased for the non-specialist. Technical development directed to the specialist should follow. References and comparisons with related work must be included. (If necessary, detailed proofs of technical results may be included in a clearly-labeled appendix, to be consulted at the discretion of program committee members.) Submissions not conforming to the above requirements will be rejected without further consideration. Paper selection will be merit-based, with no a priori limit on the number of accepted papers. Papers authored or co-authored by members of the program committee are not allowed.

Results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops. The program chair must be informed, in advance of submission, of any closely related work submitted or about to be submitted to a conference or journal. Authors of accepted papers are expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper is expected to present it at the conference.
Short Presentations

A session of short presentations, intended for descriptions of student research, works in progress, and other brief communications, is planned. These abstracts will not be published. Dates and guidelines will be posted on the conference website.
Kleene Award for Best Student Paper

An award in honor of the late Stephen C. Kleene will be given for the best student paper(s), as judged by the program committee. The 2017 edition of the award is sponsored by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS).
Special Issues

Full versions of up to three accepted papers, to be selected by the program committee, will be invited for submission to the Journal of the ACM. Additional selected papers will be invited to a special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science.

The symposium is sponsored by ACM SIGLOG and the IEEE Technical Committee on Mathematical Foundations of Computing, in cooperation with the Association for Symbolic Logic, the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science, Reyjavik University, and the Icelandic Centre of Excellence in Theoretical Computer Science.
