First Call for Papers
In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation, program
development and verification, artificial intelligence, knowledge
representation, and automated reasoning, there is an obvious need for using
specialized formalisms and inference mechanisms for special tasks.
usable in practice, these specialized systems must be combined with each
other, and must be integrated into general purpose systems. This has lead
in many research areas to the development of general techniques and methods
for the combination and integration of special, formally defined systems,
as well as for the analysis and modularization of complex systems.
The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS)
traditionally focuses on this type of research questions and activities and
aims at promoting progress in the field. Like its predecessors, FroCoS'11
seeks to offer a common forum for research activities in the general area
of combination, modularization and integration of systems, with emphasis on
logic-based ones, and of their practical use.
Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
[To be announced]
The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing original
work, written and to be presented in English, not substantially overlapping
with published or simultaneously submitted work to a journal or conference
with archival proceedings. Selection criteria include accuracy and
originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of
presentation. All submissions will be subject to academic peer review by
three or more members of the program committee. For each accepted paper, at
least one author is required to attend the symposium to present the work.
Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be
submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system:
The page limit is 16 pages.
Prospective authors are required to register a title and an abstract a week
before the paper submission deadline (see below). Further information about
paper submissions is available at the FroCoS'11 web page.
It is planned that the proceedings of FroCoS'11 will be published by
Springer-Verlag in the LNAI/LNCS series.
