FroCoS 2021 - Final Call for Papers

From: geoff
Subject: FroCoS 2021 - Final Call for Papers
Date: Tue, 20 Apr 2021 10:15:43 -0400 (EDT)


The 13th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems FroCoS 2021
will be held in the University of Birmingham on September 6-9, 2021.

FroCoS is the main international event for research on the development of
techniques and methods for the combination and integration of formal systems,
their modularization and analysis. The first FroCoS symposium was held in
Munich, Germany, in 1996. Initially held every two years, since 2004 it has
been organized annually with alternate years forming part of IJCAR.

FroCoS 2021 will be co-located with the 29th International Conference on
Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related Methods (TABLEAUX 2021).

Submission Guidelines

The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing original work,
written in English, not 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 15 pages
in total excluding references.

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

For each accepted paper, at least one of the authors is required to register to
the symposium and present the work.

Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained at

The FroCoS 2021 conference proceedings will be published in the Springer series
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI/LNCS).

List of Topics
Topics of interest for FroCoS 2021 include (but are not restricted to):
- Combinations of logics (such as higher-order, first-order, temporal, modal,
  description or other non-classical logics)
- Combination and integration methods in SAT and SMT solving
- Combination of decision procedures, satisfiability procedures, constraint
  solving techniques, or logical frameworks
- Combination of logics with probability and/or fuzzy measures
- Combinations and modularity in ontologies
- Integration of equational and other theories into deductive systems
- Hybrid methods for deduction, resolution and constraint propagation
- 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 specifications
- Integration of data structures into constraint logic programming and
- Combinations and modularity in term rewriting
- Methods and techniques for the verification and analysis of information
- Methods and techniques for combining logical reasoning with machine learning

Best Paper Awards
The program committee will select the FroCoS 2021 Best Paper, which will be
awarded 500 Euros. In addition to that, the committee will select the FroCoS
2021 Best Paper by a Junior Researcher, which will be awarded 250 Euros.

Researchers will be considered junior if either they are students or their PhD
award date is less than two years from the first day of the meeting, 8
September 2021. "Paper by a Junior Researcher" means that the paper's main
author is junior, or the paper's main authors are all junior. For a paper to
qualify, this information must be indicated in the pdf submission by adding an
asterisk (*) at both the title and the main-author name(s). This information
(main authorship by junior researcher(s)) is only for the reviewers, and should
be removed from the camera-ready version in case of acceptance.

Covid Statement
TABLEAUX 2021 and FroCoS 2021 are intended to be hybrid conferences welcoming
both physical and virtual participation. The organisers are closely monitoring
the pandemic situation and may choose to make the conference virtual-only if it
seems unreasonable to host any sort of physical event. A final decision will be
taken before 14 June (12 weeks before the conference) to leave ample time for
potential travel plans to be made.
