- The thirty-eighth Annual ACM/IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS'23) will be held in Boston, US, on June 26-29, 2023. The workshops will take place on June 24-25, 2023.
- Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops on topics relating logic - broadly construed - to computer science or related fields. Typically, LICS workshops feature a number of invited speakers and a number of contributed presentations. LICS workshops do not usually produce formal proceedings. However, in the past there have been special issues of journals based in part on certain LICS workshops.
- Proposals should include:
- A short scientific summary and justification of the proposed topic. This should include a discussion of the particular benefits of the topic to the LICS community.
- Potential invited speakers.
- Procedures for selecting participants and papers.
- Plans for dissemination (for example, special issues of journals).
- The proposed duration, which is one or two days.
- A discussion of the proposed format and agenda.
- Expected number of participants, providing data on previous years
Proposals should be sent to Valentin Blot: lics23-workshops at valentinblot.org
- IMPORTANT DATES:
Submission deadline: Nov 30, 2022 Notification: mid-December, 2022 Program of the workshops ready: May 24, 2023 Workshops: June 24-25, 2023 LICS conference: June 26-29, 2023
- Nominations are solicited for the 2023 ACM SIGAI Autonomous Agents Research Award. This award is made for excellence in research in the area of autonomous agents. It is intended to recognize researchers in autonomous agents whose current work is an important influence on the field. The award is an official ACM award, funded by an endowment created by ACM SIGAI from the proceeds of previous Autonomous Agents conferences. The recipient of the award will receive a monetary prize and a certificate, and will be invited to present a plenary talk at the AAMAS 2023 conference in London, United Kingdom.
- How to Nominate
Anyone can make a nomination. Nominations should be made by email to the chair of the award committee, Manuela Veloso (email@example.com), and should consist of a short (< 1 page) statement that emphasizes not only the research contributions that the individual has made that merit the award but also how the individual’s current work is an important influence on the field.
NOTE: a candidate can only be considered for the award if they are explicitly nominated. If you believe that someone deserves the award, then NOMINATE THEM — don’t assume that somebody else will!
- IMPORTANT DATES
Deadline for nominations: Nov 15, 2022 Announcement of winner: Dec 15, 2022 AAMAS-2023 conference in London, United Kingdom: May 29-Jun 2, 2023
- THE PRIZE
The "Dov Gabbay Prize for Logic and Foundations" is an international research prize established to honour the extraordinary, multi-faceted, and ongoing scientific and editorial work of Prof. Dov Gabbay, known in particular for editing an extensive collection of specialized Logic Handbooks. It has been launched on the occasion of his 77th birthday (for a short bio, see: https://dgp.iloaf.org/dov.html).
The prize rewards outstanding researchers in Logic and Foundations, including Mathematical, Philosophical, and Computational Logic. It promotes work able to inspire current and future generations of logicians, if not a broader audience, ideally combining deep foundational insight and conceptual innovation with sophisticated theoretical analysis.
The winner will receive 2001 EUR and be invited to give a talk (accessible for an online audience) at a major logic centre or a logic-related meeting in 2023, the choice depending on the recipient's research area. Additional efforts will be made to promote the rewarded scientific work.
Each nomination has to specify the researcher, provide a justification accessible to non-expert logicians (0.5-2 pages), and list the publications considered relevant.
It also has to include the name, affiliation, and email address of the nominator. Self-nominations are not allowed, the nominator should not depend on the nominee.
Proposals in pdf-format have to be sent to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
The deadline for this call is Jan 31, 2023.
The decision is made by an independent selection committee consisting of six internationally renowned logicians representing Mathematical, Philosophical, and Computational logic (for details, see: https://dgp.iloaf.org). The jury can decide to attribute no prize in a given year. The winner of the 2022 call will be announced in May 2023.
Prize and process are managed by the "Logic and Foundations Initiative (ILOAF)", which aims at initiating and supporting scientific and educational activities in Logic and Foundations. It is currently sponsored by the Luxembourg Logic Community.
For any questions, please contact the organizing committee (only) via email.
- NOMINATIONS AND ELIGIBILITY
Nominations may be made by any member of the scientific community and any such member can be nominated. Nomination letters can have multiple signatories and should provide a motivation for awarding the prize to the nominee, precisely stating their outstanding results, their seminal and lasting theory building, and/or their exceptional service to the research communities involved.
