26th International Conference on Automated Reasoning with
Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods
University of Brasília, Brazil
September 26-29, 2017

Submission Deadline: 25 Apr 2017

TABLEAUX is the main international conference at which research
on all aspects, theoretical foundations, implementation techniques,
systems development and applications, of the mechanization of
tableau-based reasoning and related methods is presented. The
conference will be held in Brasília from 26-29 September 2017.

TABLEAUX 2017 will be co-located with both the 11th International
Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS 2017) and the
8th International Conference on Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP

Tableau methods offer a convenient and flexible set of tools for
automated reasoning in classical logic, extensions of classical
logic, and a large number of non-classical logics. For large groups
of logics, tableau methods can be generated automatically. Areas
of application include verification of software and computer
systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
required inference engines, teaching, and system diagnosis.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* tableau methods for classical and non-classical logics
(including first-order, higher-order, modal, temporal,
description, hybrid, intuitionistic, substructural,
relevance, non-monotonic logics) and their proof-theoretic
* related methods (SMT, model elimination, model checking,
connection methods, resolution, BDDs, translation approaches);
* sequent calculi and natural deduction calculi for classical
and non-classical logics, as tools for proof search and proof
* flexible, easily extendable, light weight methods for theorem
* novel types of calculi for theorem proving and verification
in classical and non-classical logics;
* systems, tools, implementations, empirical evaluations and
applications (provers, logical frameworks, model checkers, ...);
* implementation techniques (data structures, efficient
algorithms, performance measurement, extensibility, ...);
* extensions of tableau procedures with conflict-driven
learning, generation of proofs; compact (or humanly readable)
representation of proofs;
* decision procedures, theoretically optimal procedures;
* applications of automated deduction to mathematics, software
development, verification, deductive and temporal
databases, knowledge representation, ontologies, fault
diagnosis or teaching.

We also welcome papers describing applications of tableau
procedures to real world examples. Such papers should be tailored
to the tableau community and should focus on the role of
reasoning, and logical aspects of the solution.

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

The conference proceedings will published in the Springer
LNAI/LNCS series, as in previous editions.

Submissions are invited in two categories:

A Research papers, which describe original theoretical
research, original algorithms, or applications, with length
up to 15 pages.
B System descriptions, with length up to 9 pages.

Submissions will be reviewed by the PC, possibly with the help of
external reviewers, taking into account readability, relevance
and originality.

For category A, theoretical results and algorithms must be
original, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions
will be reviewed taking into account correctness, theoretical
elegance, and possible implementability.

For category B submissions, a working implementation must be
accessible via the internet, which includes sources. The aim of a
system description is to make the system available in such a way
that users can use it, understand it, and build on it.

Accepted papers in both categories will be published in the
conference proceedings. Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the
llncs style and must be submitted electronically as PDF files via
the EasyChair system:

For all accepted papers at least one author is required to attend
the conference and present the paper. A paper title and a short
abstract of about 100 words must be submitted before the paper
submission deadline. Further information about paper submissions
will be made available at the conference website. Formatting
instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained via

The TABLEAUX 2017 Best Paper Award will be presented to the best
submission nominated and chosen by the Program Committee among
the accepted papers. The eligibility criteria will place emphasis
on the originality and significance of the contribution, but
readability and the overall technical quality, including correctness
and completeness of results, will be also considered. The TABLEAUX
Best Paper Award was established in 2015 and it is a permanent
initiative of TABLEAUX.
