19 June 2017, Workshop "Women in Logic" (WiL 2017), Reykjavik, Iceland

Date: Monday 19 June 2017
Location: Reykjavik, Iceland
Deadline: Friday 17 February 2017

Women are chronically underrepresented in the LICS community; consequently they sometimes feel both conspicuous and isolated, and hence there is a risk that the under-representation is self-perpetuating. We are holding the first Women in Logic (WiL) workshop as a LICS associated workshop this year. 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 comprised of 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.

Invited Speakers: Claudia Nalon (University of Brasilia, Brasil) and Catuscia Palamidessi (INRIA Saclay and LIX, France).

Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form of full papers (with a maximum of 10 pages) or short papers (with a maximum of 5 pages). They must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Topics of interest of this workshop include but are not limited to the usual Logic in Computer Science (LICS) topics.
