Computer Science Logic (CSL) is the annual conference of the European Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL). The conference is intended for computer scientists whose research activities involve logic, as well as for logicians working on issues significant for computer science. CSL'09, the 18th annual EACSL conference will be organized at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Coimbra.

Topics of interest include:

  • automated deduction and interactive theorem proving,
  • constructive mathematics and type theory,
  • equational logic and term rewriting,
  • automata and games,
  • modal and temporal logics,
  • model checking,
  • logical aspects of computational complexity,
  • finite model theory,
  • computational proof theory,
  • logic programming and constraints,
  • lambda calculus and combinatory logic,
  • categorical logic and topological semantics,
  • domain theory,
  • database theory,
  • specification, extraction and transformation of programs,
  • logical foundations of programming paradigms,
  • verification and program analysis,
  • linear logic,
  • higher-order logic,
  • nonmonotonic reasoning.

Proceedings will be published in the LNCS series. Each paper accepted by the Programme Committee must be presented at the conference by one of the authors, and final copy be prepared according to Springer's guidelines.

Submitted papers must be in Springer's LNCS style and of no more than 15 pages, presenting work not previously published. They must not be submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. Any closely related work submitted by the authors to a conference or journal before 30 March, 2009 must be reported to the PC chairs. Papers authored or coauthored by members of the Programme Committee are not allowed.

Submitted papers must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the Programme Committee to assess the merits of the paper. Full proofs may appear in a technical appendix which will be read at the reviewer's discretion. The title page must contain: title and author(s), physical and e-mail addresses, identification of the corresponding author, an abstract of no more than, 200 words, and a list of keywords.

The Submission Deadline is in two stages. Titles and abstracts must be submitted by 30 March, 2009 and full papers by 6 April, 2009. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 25 May, 2009, and final versions are due 22 June, 2009.

The Ackermann Award for 2009 will be presented to the recipients at CSL'09.
