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.

Important Dates

Titles and Short Abstracts Due 3 January 2017
Full Papers Due 9 January 2017
Author Feedback/Rebuttal Period 28 February – 4 March 2017
Author Notification 21 March 2017
Final Versions Due for Proceedings 18 April 2017
Early Registration Deadline TBC 2017
Conference 20–23 June 2017 2017

Sponsorship

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.

However, in the past there have been special issues of journals based in part on certain LICS workshops. Proposals should include:

  • A short scientific summary and justification of the proposed topic. This should include a discussion of the particular benefits of the topic to the LICS community.
  • A discussion of the proposed format and agenda.
  • The proposed duration, which is typically one day (two-day workshops can be accommodated too).
  • Procedures for selecting participants and papers.
  • Expected number of participants. This is important for the room!
  • Potential invited speakers.
  • Plans for dissemination (for example, special issues of journals).

Proposals should be sent to Patricia Bouyer: bouyer at lsv dot fr.

  • Workshop proposal submission deadline 1 November 2016
  • Notification 15 November 2016
  • Programme of the workshops ready 19 May 2017
  • Workshops 18–19 June 2017
  • Conference 20–23 June 2017

Provisional Call for Papers

LICS 2017 will be hosted in Reykjavik during 20-23 June 2017.

The LICS Symposium is an annual international forum on theoretical and practical topics in computer science that relate to logic, broadly construed. We invite submissions on topics that fit under that rubric. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

automata theory, automated deduction, categorical models and logics, concurrency and distributed computation, constraint programming, constructive mathematics, database theory, decision procedures, description logics, domain theory, finite model theory, formal aspects of program analysis, formal methods, foundations of computability, games and logic, higher-order logic, lambda and combinatory calculi, linear logic, logic in artificial intelligence, logic programming, logical aspects of bioinformatics, logical aspects of computational complexity, logical aspects of quantum computation, logical frameworks, logics of programs, modal and temporal logics, model checking, probabilistic systems, process calculi, programming language semantics, proof theory, real-time systems, reasoning about security and privacy, rewriting, type systems and type theory, and verification.

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).

  • Titles and Short Abstracts Due 3 January 2017
  • Full Papers Due 9 January 2017
  • Author Feedback/Rebuttal Period 28 February – 4 March 2017
  • Author Notification 21 March 2017
  • Final Versions Due for Proceedings 18 April 2017
  • Early Registration Deadline TBC 2017
  • Conference 20–23 June 2017

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.

Short Presentations

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).

Special Issues

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.
