8 July 2018, Second Women in Logic Workshop (WiL 2018), Oxford, England

Date: Sunday 8 July 2018
Location: Oxford, England
Deadline: Saturday 31 March 2018

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. The second Women in Logic Workshop (WiL 2018), held as a LICS associated 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.

Topics of interest of this workshop include but are not limited to the usual Logic in Computer Science (LICS) topics. 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).
