GandALF 2020: GandALF 2020

September 21, 2020-September 22, 2020 in Brussels, Belgium

Call for Papers

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the difficulties that are foreseen regarding travelling during next September, it has been decided to organise the symposium online. The organisation will be as follows:

  • the authors of accepted papers will be invited to record a 25 minutes presentation of their paper
  • these presentations will be made available to the registered participants (with no fees) to the conference a few days before the conference
  • four invited talks will be given live during the online conference
  • each invited talk will be followed by a Q/A session on papers grouped by topics. Each such session will open with 5 minutes short presentations of each of the papers of the session by one of their author.

Papers focused on formal methods are especially welcome. Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on all relevant topics in these areas. Papers discussing new ideas that are at an early stage of development are also welcome. The topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Automata Theory
  • Automated Deduction
  • Computational aspects of Game Theory
  • Concurrency and Distributed computation
  • Decision Procedures
  • Deductive, Compositional, and Abstraction Techniques for Verification
  • Finite Model Theory
  • First-order and Higher-order Logics
  • Formal Languages
  • Formal Methods for Systems Biology, Hybrid, Embedded, and Mobile Systems
  • Games and Automata for Verification
  • Game Semantics
  • Logical aspects of Computational Complexity
  • Logics of Programs
  • Modal and Temporal Logics
  • Model Checking
  • Models of Reactive and Real-Time Systems

PUBLICATIONS

The proceedings will be published by Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science. Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit a revised version of their work to a special issue of Information and Computation. The previous editions of GandALF already led to special issues of the International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science (GandALF 2010), Theoretical Computer Science (GandALF 2011 and 2012), Information and Computation (GandALF 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017, the latter ones are still in progress), and Acta Informatica (GandALF 2015).

SUBMISSIONS

Submitted papers should not exceed fourteen (14) pages using EPTCS format (please use the LaTeX style provided at http://style.eptcs.org), be unpublished and contain original research. For papers reporting experimental results, authors are encouraged to make their data available with their submission. Submissions must be in PDF or PS format and will be handled via the EasyChair Conference system at the following address:
