(2) 17th Workshop on Logic, Language, Information and Computation
(WoLLIC 2010)

extract from CfP:
*Paper submission*
Contributions are invited on all pertinent subjects, with particular
interest in cross-disciplinary topics. Typical but not exclusive areas of
interest are: foundations of computing and programming; novel computation
models and paradigms; broad notions of proof and belief; formal methods in
software and hardware development; logical approach to natural language and
reasoning; logics of programs, actions and resources; foundational aspects
of information organization, search, flow, sharing, and protection. Proposed
contributions should be in English, and consist of a scholarly exposition
accessible to the non-specialist, including motivation, background, and
comparison with related works. They must not exceed 10 pages (in font 10 or
higher), with up to 5 additional pages for references and technical
appendices. The paper's main results must not be published or submitted for
publication in refereed venues, including journals and other scientific
meetings. It is expected that each accepted paper be presented at the
meeting by one of its authors. Papers must be submitted electronically at
the WoLLIC 2010 EasyChair website. (Please go to for instructions.) A title
and single-paragraph abstract should be submitted by February 28, and the
full paper by March 7 (firm date). Notifications are expected by April 12,
and final papers for the proceedings will be due by May 3 (firm date).

The proceedings of WoLLIC 2010, including both invited and contributed
papers, will be published in advance of the meeting as a volume in
Springer's LNCS  series (TBC). In addition,
abstracts will be published in the Conference Report section of the Logic
Journal of the IGPL, and selected contributions will be published as a
special post-conference WoLLIC 2010 issue of a scientific journal (soon to
be announced).

- 25-29 August 2010, 8th International Conference on Advances in Modal
Logic (AiML-2010), Moscow, Russia

Advances in Modal Logic is an initiative aimed at presenting the state
of the art in modal logic and its various applications. The initiative
consists of a conference series together with volumes based on the
conferences. Information about the AiML series can be obtained at AiML-2010 is the eighth conference in the series.

Authors are invited to submit, for presentation at the conference and
publication in the proceedings, full papers reporting on original
research and not submitted elsewhere (deadline: 16 March 2010).
Alternatively, authors may submit abstracts for short presentations,
which may describe preliminary results, work in progress etc., and will
be subject to light reviewing (deadline: 1 June, 2010). We invite
submission on all aspects of modal logics.
