About the Symposium
The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and practical topics in computer science that relate to logic, broadly construed. LICS 2017 will be hosted at Reykjavik University during 20–23 June 2017, with affiliated workshops 18–19 June.
Titles and Short Abstracts Due 3 January 2017
Full Papers Due 9 January 2017
Author Feedback/Rebuttal Period 28 February – 4 March 2017

Conference 20–23 June 2017 2017
The symposium is sponsored by ACM SIGLOG and the IEEE Technical Committee on Mathematical Foundations of Computing, in cooperation with the Association for Symbolic Logic, the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science, Reyjavik University, and the Icelandic Centre of Excellence in Theoretical Computer Science.
Call for Workshops
The thirty-second Annual ACM/IEEE Symposium on Logic In Computer Science (LICS'17) will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland on June 20–23, 2017. The workshops will take place on June 18–19, 2017. June 18 will only be used by two-days workshops (if any), or in case the number of workshops is really large. This year, workshop fees should be around 65 euros for a one-day workshop (including lunch and two coffee breaks). Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops on topics relating logic – broadly construed – to computer science or related fields. Typically, LICS workshops feature a number of invited speakers and a number of contributed presentations. LICS workshops do not usually produce formal proceedings.
Instructions to Authors
Authors are required to submit a paper title and a short abstract of about 100 words in advance of submitting the extended abstract of the paper. The exact deadline time on these dates is given by anywhere on earth (AoE).

Every extended abstract must be submitted in the IEEE Proceedings 2-column 10pt format and may be at most 12 pages, including references. LaTeX style files are available in the "Further official information" link below this article.
The extended abstract must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the conference and to computer science, all phrased for the non-specialist. Technical development directed to the specialist should follow. References and comparisons with related work must be included. (If necessary, detailed proofs of technical results may be included in a clearly-labeled appendix, to be consulted at the discretion of program committee members.) Submissions not conforming to the above requirements will be rejected without further consideration. Paper selection will be merit-based, with no a priori limit on the number of accepted papers. Papers authored or co-authored by members of the program committee are not allowed.
Results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops. The program chair must be informed, in advance of submission, of any closely related work submitted or about to be submitted to a conference or journal. Authors of accepted papers are expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper is expected to present it at the conference.
A session of short presentations, intended for descriptions of student research, works in progress, and other brief communications, is planned. These abstracts will not be published. Dates and guidelines will be posted on the conference website.
Kleene Award for Best Student Paper
An award in honor of the late Stephen C. Kleene will be given for the best student paper(s), as judged by the program committee. The 2017 edition of the award is sponsored by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS).
Full versions of up to three accepted papers, to be selected by the program committee, will be invited for submission to the Journal of the ACM. Additional selected papers will be invited to a special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science.
