23 June 2019, 3rd Women in Logic Workshop (WiL 2019), Vancouver BC, Canada

Date: Sunday 23 June 2019
Location: Vancouver BC, Canada
Deadline: Sunday 21 April 2019

We are holding the third Women in Logic Workshop (WiL 2019) as a LICS associated workshop on 23 June 2019. The workshop follows the pattern of meetings such as Women in Machine Learning (WiML) or Women in Engineering (WIE) that have been taking place for quite a few years.

Women are chronically underrepresented in the LiCS community. The workshop will provide an opportunity for women in the field to increase awareness of one another and one another's work, to combat the feeling of isolation. It will also provide an environment where women can present to an audience comprising mostly women, replicating the experience that most men have at most LiCS meetings, and lowering the stress of the occasion; we hope that this will be particularly attractive to early-career women. Previous versions of Women in Logic (Reykjavik, Iceland 2017 and Oxford, UK 2018) were very successful in showcasing women's work and as catalysts for recognition of the need for change in the community.

Contributions should be written in English and can be submitted in the form of full papers (with a maximum of 10 pages), short papers (with a maximum of 5 pages), or talk abstracts (1 page). Our extended program committee tries to cover most areas of Logic in Computer Science. These include but are not limited to the usual Logic in Computer Science (LICS) topics.
