ACM SIGLOG ANNOUNCEMENT http://siglog.acm.org * The ACM has recently chartered a Special Interest Group on Logic and Computation (ACM SIGLOG). * We are pleased to announce the 2016 ACM SIGLOG election results for the term of 1 July 2016 - 30 June 2019. The SIGLOG Chair is Prakash Panangaden and the other officers are Luke Ong (vice-Chair), Amy Felty (Treasurer) and Alexandra Silva (Secretary). * The ACM-IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science is the flagship conference of SIGLOG. SIGLOG will also actively seek association agreements with other conferences in the field. A SIGLOG newsletter (SIGLOG News) is also published quarterly in an electronic format with community news, technical columns, members' feedback, conference reports, book reviews and other items of interest to the community. * One can join SIGLOG by visiting https://campus.acm.org/public/qj/gensigqj/siglist/gensigqj_siglist.cfm It is possible to join SIGLOG without joining ACM (the SIGLOG membership fee is $25 and $15 for students). EATCS Bulletin - Call for abstracts * EATCS Bulletin, http://eatcs.org/index.php/eatcs-bulletin, has a section for "Technical contributions." To stimulate this section further, we will be considering for publication abstracts of works that have been accepted by journals and/or conferences or have appeared in major archives. The topics of interest include all areas of theoretical computer science (for instance, see topics of the three Tracks of ICALP, http://www.easyconferences.eu/icalp2016/cfp.html). * Abstracts should be rather detailed, 2-3 pages long in the format given at http://eatcs.org/index.php/eatcs-bulletin. Submissions should include the information on the full paper (the name of conferences, archives, etc) and sufficiently detailed explanation of its merits, e.g., importance, motivations, clear comparison with existing results and novelty and/or new ideas of proof techniques. * The Bulletin is published in Feb, Jun and Oct. The deadline for the abstract submission is 20th of the previous month, for instance, May 20 (Sat) 2017 for the June issue of this year. All materials including tex and pdf files should be sent electrically to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Acceptance/rejection, decided based on its merit mentioned above, will be notified as soon as possible. The Bulletin will not require copy-right transfer for accepted abstracts.

Traditionally, substructural logics have been investigated using proof theoretic and algebraic methods. In recent years, combined approaches have started to emerge. The program of this SYSMICS workshop will be focused on the interactions between syntactic and semantic methods in substructural and related logics, as well as their applications. * If you would like to give a contributed talk, please submit an abstract of 1-3 pages in pdf via the EasyChair submission page: http://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sysmicsw2 * Participation will be free of charge, and everyone is welcome to attend with or without contributing a talk. Notification of attendance via email by 10th February, 2018 would be appreciated. All notifications and informal enquiries should be addressed to email@example.com * Limited travel grants may be available (please enquire). * Invited Speakers: To be announced * IMPORTANT DATES 15th December 2017: abstract submission deadline 22nd December 2017: author notification 26 - 28th February 2018: workshop * This is the second workshop in the framework of the MSCA-RISE project SYSMICS (Syntax meets Semantics - Methods, Interactions, and Connections in Substructural logics http://logica.dmi.unisa.it/sysmics/). * Detailed information can be found on the webpage. 10th SYMPOSIUM ON FOUNDATIONS OF INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS (FoIKS 2018) Call for papers [Extended Deadline] May 14-18, 2018, Alfred Renyi Institute of Mathematics, Budapest, Hungary http://2018.foiks.org/ * FoIKS 2018 solicits original contributions dealing with any foundational aspect of information and knowledge systems.

SPECIAL ISSUE OF IJAR ON "DEFEASIBLE AND AMPLIATIVE REASONING" Call for Papers * Classical reasoning is not flexible enough when directly applied to the formalization of certain nuances of decision making as done by humans. These involve different kinds of reasoning such as reasoning with uncertainty, exceptions, similarity, vagueness, incomplete or contradictory information and many others. * Everyday reasoning usually shows the two salient intertwined aspects below: - Ampliative aspect: augmenting the underlying reasoning by allowing more conclusions. - Defeasible aspect: curtailing the underlying reasoning by either disregarding or disallowing some conclusions that somehow ought not to be sanctioned. * This special issue aims at bringing together work on defeasible and ampliative reasoning from the perspective of artificial intelligence, cognitive sciences, philosophy and related disciplines in a multi-disciplinary way, thereby consolidating the mission of the DARe workshop series. * The submission url is: http://www.evise.com/evise/jrnl/IJA * When submitting your manuscript, please select ``VSI:DARe special issue'' as the article type. * If you have any enquiries, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org * IMPORTANT DATES Submission deadline: 15 February 2018 Notification: 1 November 2018 Publication date: 1 January 2019 * Guest editors Richard Booth, Cardiff University, UK Giovanni Casini, University of Luxembourg Szymon Klarman, Semantic Integration Ltd., UK Gilles Richard, Universite Paul Sabatier, France Ivan Varzinczak, CRIL, Univ.
