Call for Abstracts and Student Travel Grant Applications


The workshop provides an informal forum for the automated reasoning community to discuss recent work, new ideas and applications, and current trends. It aims to bring together researchers from all areas of automated reasoning in order to foster links among researchers from various disciplines; among theoreticians, implementers and users alike.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics;
  • Interactive theorem proving, logical frameworks, proof assistants, proof planning
  • Reasoning methods:
    • Saturation-based, instantiation-based, tableau, SAT
    • Equational reasoning, unification
    • Constraint satisfaction
    • Decision procedures, SMT
    • Combining reasoning systems
    • Non-monotonic reasoning, commonsense reasoning
    • Abduction, induction
    • Model checking, model generation, explanation
  • Formal methods to specifying, deriving, transforming and verifying computer systems, requirements and software
  • Logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning:
    • Ontology engineering and reasoning
    • Domain specific reasoning (spatial, temporal, epistemic,agents, etc)
  • Logic and functional programming, deductive databases
  • Implementation issues and empirical results, demos
  • Practical experience and applications of automated reasoning

The workshop will be highly interactive, giving all attendees an opportunity to participate. There will be sessions for displaying posters and presenting system demonstrations, and open discussion sessions organised around specific topics.

The discussion sessions will follow the invited lectures.


We invite the submission of camera-ready, two-page extended abstracts about recent work, work in progress, or a system description. The abstract can describe work that has already been published elsewhere. The main objective of the abstracts is to spread information about recent work in our community, and we expect to accept most on-topic submissions, but we may ask for revisions.

To prepare your submission, please use the ARW LaTeX style file provided from the workshop website. Each submission should include the names and complete addresses (including email) of all authors. For the final versions we require all sources (TeX file and any input files).

Please send you submission via EasyChair at Correspondence will be sent to corresponding authors indicated on EasyChair.

Publication Details

Abstracts will be published in informal workshop notes and will be made available on the workshop web page.


Each workshop participant will be asked to give a short talk (5-10 minutes) to introduce their research. Each participant will also be allocated space in a poster session (poster size up to A0), where they can further present and discuss their work. Please prepare posters for the event.

Student Grants

We have a limited number of grants available to support PhD students in attending the event. If you are interested submit an application by 27 February. Please refer to the workshop website for details.
