Call For Papers



Advances in Modal Logic is an initiative aimed at presenting
the state of the art in modal logic and its various applications. The
initiative consists of a conference series together with volumes based on
the conferences. Information about the AiML series can be obtained at AiML-2012 is the ninth conference in the series.

We invite submission on all aspects of modal logic, including:

- history of modal logic
- philosophy of modal logic
- applications of modal logic
- computational aspects of modal logic (complexity and decidability of
modal and temporal logics, modal and temporal logic programming,
model checking, model generation, theorem proving for modal logics)
- theoretical aspects of modal logic (algebraic/categorical perspectives
on modal logic, coalgebraic modal logic, completeness and canonicity,
correspondence and duality theory, many-dimensional modal logics,
modal fixed point logics, model theory of modal logic, proof theory
of modal logic)
- specific instances and variations of modal logic (description logics,
modal logics over non-boolean bases, dynamic logics and other process
logics, epistemic and deontic logics, modal logics for agent-based
systems, modal logic and game theory, modal logic and grammar
formalisms, provability and interpretability logics, spatial and
temporal logics, hybrid logic, intuitionistic logic, substructural
logics, computationally light fragments of all such logics)

Papers on related subjects will also be considered.

Advances in Modal Logic 2012 will be held at
the IDA conference center in downtown Copenhagen:

This is in easy walking distance from Copenhagen Central Station and a number of
reasonably priced hotels.

There will be two types of submissions to AiML-2012: (1) Full papers
for publication in the proceedings and presentation at the
conference. (2) Abstracts for short presentation only. Both types of
papers should be submitted electronically using the EasyChair submission
page at

At least one author of each accepted paper of abstract must register for,
and attend, the conference to present his or her work.

(1) FULL PAPERS. Authors are invited to submit, for presentation at the conference
and publication in the proceedings, full papers reporting on original research
and not submitted elsewhere. The proceedings of AiML'2012 will be published
by College Publications ( in a volume
to be made available at the conference. The submissions should be at
most 15 pages, with an optional technical appendix of up to 5 pages, together
with a plain-text abstract of 100-200 words. The submissions must be typeset in
LaTeX, using a style file and template that will be provided on the AiML'2012

(2) ABSTRACTS. These should be at most 5 pages. They may describe preliminary
results, work in progress etc., and will be subject to light reviewing. The
accepted abstracts will be made available at the conference, and the authors will
have the opportunity to make short presentations (of up to 15 minutes) on

SPECIAL SESSION ON HYBRID LOGIC. Hybrid logic is an extension of modal logic
allowing to refer explicitly to states of the model in the syntax of formulas.
There will be a special session of AiML devoted to papers on hybrid logic.
The scope of the special session is standard hybrid-logical machinery like
nominals, satisfaction operators, and the downarrow binder, but also other
extensions of modal logic can be considered.

special session of AiML devoted to papers and talks in honour of Larisa
Maksimova, in recognition of her many outstanding contributions to modal

SPECIAL SESSION ON MODALITES FOR TYPES. Recent years have witnessed significant
growth of interest in constructive type-theoretical modalities, in particular
modalities ensuring productivity and type safety of (co-)recursive definitions in
reactive programming. Some earlier examples include the use of modalities for staged
computation, metaprogramming or in computational lambda-calculus. In order to boost
interaction between programming, type-theoretical and modal communities, AiML 2012
will host a special session on these topics. Papers for this session should be
submitted to the EasyChair site along with others.

Papers for the special sessions should be submitted to the EasyChair site along with
