This conference is the 18th in a series of international meetings on
Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods.

In July 2009, the conference will be held in Oslo, Norway. The
conference proceedings will be published in LNAI series as in the
previous editions of the conference.

See for more information
on TABLEAUX 2009, and for
information about the TABLEAUX conference series.


Tableau methods are a convenient formalism for automating deduction
in various non-standard logics as well as in classical logic. Areas
of application include verification of software and computer
systems, deductive databases, knowledge representation and its
required inference engines, and system diagnosis. The conference
brings together researchers interested in all aspects - theoretical
foundations, implementation techniques, systems development and
applications - of the mechanization of reasoning with tableaux and
related methods.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):

* analytic tableaux for various logics (theory and applications)
* related techniques and concepts, e.g., model checking and BDDs
* related methods (model elimination, sequent calculi,
connection method, ...)
* new calculi and methods for theorem proving in classical and
non-classical logics (modal, description, intuitionistic, linear,
temporal, many-valued...)
* systems, tools, implementations and applications.

As in previous years, TABLEAUX 2009 puts a special emphasis on
applications. Papers describing applications of tableaux and related
methods in areas such as hardware and software verification,
semantic technologies, knowledge engineering, etc. are particularly

One or more tutorials will be part of the conference program.


The conference will include contributed papers, tutorials, system
descriptions, position papers and invited lectures. Submissions are
invited in four categories:

A Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or experimental
research, up to 15 pages)
B System descriptions (up to 5 pages)
C Position papers and brief reports on work in progress
D Tutorials in all areas of analytic tableaux and related methods
from academic research to applications (proposals up to 5 pages)

Submissions in categories A and B will be reviewed by peers,
typically members of the program committee. They must be unpublished
and not submitted for publication elsewhere. For category B
submissions a working implementation must exist and be available to
the referees. After the notification, there will be a rebuttal
phase of three days during which the authors of rejected papers will
have the opportunity to respond to the reviews. Accepted papers in
these categories will be published in the conference proceedings.

Submissions in category C will be reviewed by members of the program
committee and a collection of the accepted papers in this category
will be published as a Technical Report of the University of Oslo.

Tutorial submissions (Category D) may be at introductory,
intermediate, or advanced levels. Novel topics and topics of broad
interest are preferred. The submission should include the title, the
author, the topic of the tutorial, its level, its relevance to
conference topics, and a description of the interest and the
scientific contents of the proposed tutorial. Tutorial proposals
will be reviewed by members of the program committee.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the


TABLEAUX 2009 launches a Call for Workshop Proposal on specialised
subjects in the range of the conference topics. We can accept up to
2 proposals. The proposals are reviewed by members of the PC
committee. The purpose of a workshop is to offer an opportunity of
presenting novel ideas, ongoing research, and to discuss the state
of the art of an area in a less formal but more focused way than the
conference itself. It is also a good opportunity for young
researchers to present their own work and to obtain feedback. The
format of a workshop is left to the the organizers, but it is
expected to contain significant time for discussion. The intended
schedule is for one-day workshops.

Further information and instructions about submissions will be
available on the conference website at
