FroCoS 2013
9th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
Nancy, France
September 18-20, 2013

Submission Deadlines: 15 Apr 2013 (Abs.), 22 Apr 2013 (Paper)

The 9th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining
Systems will be held in Nancy, France, from 18-20 September
2013. The aim of the conference is to publish and promote
progress in research areas requiring the development of general
techniques and methods for the combination and integration of
special, formally defined systems, as well as for the analysis
and modularization of complex systems.

FroCos 2013 will be co-located with the 22nd International
Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and
Related Methods (TABLEAUX 2013) held 16-19 September 2013. A
joint invited speaker and joint session is planned.

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
mechanisms for special tasks. To be usable in practice, these
specialized systems must be combined with each other, and must be
integrated into general purpose systems. This has led in many
research areas to the development of general techniques and
methods for the combination and integration of special, formally
defined systems, as well as for the analysis and modularization
of complex systems.

The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
(FroCoS) traditionally focusses on these types of research
questions and activities. Like its predecessors, FroCoS 2013
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 combined higher-order,
first-order, temporal, modal, or other non-classical logics;
* combinations and modularity in ontologies;
* combination of decision procedures, of satisfiability
procedures, of constraint solving techniques or of logical
* combination and integration methods in SAT and SMT solving;
* combinations and modularity in term rewriting;
* integration of equational and other theories into deductive
* combination of deduction systems and computer algebra;
* integration of data structures into constraint logic
programming and deduction;
* 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

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

The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing
original work, written and to be presented in English, not
substantially 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 pages.

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

For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to
attend the symposium to present the work. Prospective authors
must register a title and an abstract a week before the paper
submission deadline. Further information about paper submissions
will be available at the conference website.
