Journal of Applied Logic Special Issue on Methods for Modalities

Deadline: 31 October 2004

Call for Papers

The workshop `Methods for Modalities' (M4M) organized every two years aims to bring together researchers interested in developing proof tools and decision methods for modal logic broadly conceived, including description logic, hybrid logic, temporal logic, etc.

During 1993 M4M-3, the third instance of the workshop was organized in Nancy, France. We have been invited by the Journal of Applied Logic to prepare a Special Issue containing selected publications from the workshop, in addition to other articles that might fit within the topics of interest of M4M. For that reason we are now distributing this Call for Papers.

Topics of Interest for M4M

The following list is provided as an example of suitable topics for the Special Issue. All topics should concern modal-like logics, broadly conceived. The list is by no means exhaustive and is given in an arbitrary order:

  • Automated theorem proving
  • Decision methods
  • Proof methods
  • Standard and non-standard inference problems
  • Model checking
  • Testing
  • Expressive power
  • Modelling
  • Applications
  • Successful uses of modal-like languages in other fields
  • Knowledge representation

Submission Details
