Call for Papers
11th International Conference on Advances in Modal Logic
Budapest, 30 August – 2 September 2016
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 http://www.aiml.net. AiML 2016 is the 11th conference in the series.
We invite submission on all aspects of modal logic, including:
- history of modal logic
- philosophy of modal logic
- computational aspects of modal logic (complexity and decidability of modal and temporal logics, modal and temporal logic programming, model checking, model generation, theorem proving for modal logics)
- theoretical aspects of modal logic (algebraic/categorical perspectives on modal logic, coalgebraic modal logic, completeness and canonicity, correspondence and duality theory, many-dimensional modal logics, modal fixed point logics, model theory of modal logic, proof theory of modal logic)
- specific instances and variations of modal logic (description logics, modal logics over non-boolean bases, dynamic logics and other process logics, epistemic and deontic logics, modal logics for agent-based systems, modal logic and game theory, modal logic and grammar formalisms, provability and interpretability logics, spatial and temporal logics, hybrid logic, intuitionistic logic, substructural logics, computationally light fragments of all such logics)
Papers on related subjects will also be considered.
Invited speakers include:
- Sonja Smets (ILLC, Universiteit van Amsterdam)
Talk title: Beliefs and Evidence in Justification Models
- Yde Venema (ILLC, Universiteit van Amsterdam)
Talk title: Modal Automata: studying fixpoint logics one step at a time
- Guram Bezhanishvili (New Mexico State University)
Talk title: The modal logic of topology: new directions
- Valentin Goranko (Stockholm University)
Talk title: Modal logics of interval relations: a selective overviewPart of the Chagrov Memorial Session
There will be two types of submissions to AiML 2016:
- Full papers for publication in the proceedings and presentation at the conference.
- Short presentations intended for presentation at the conference but not for the published proceedings.
Both types of papers should be submitted electronically using the EasyChair submission page at
At least one author of each accepted paper or short presentation must register for and attend the conference.
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. The proceedings of AiML 2016 will be published by College Publications in a volume to be made available at the conference. The submissions should be at most 15 pages, with an optional technical appendix of up to 5 pages, together with a plain-text abstract of 100-200 words. The submissions must be typeset in LaTeX, using the style files and template provided in this ZIP file.
We also ask authors of full papers to submit the abstract in plain text via EasyChair by March 10th.
These should be at most 5 pages. They may describe preliminary results, work in progress etc., and will be subject to light reviewing. The accepted submissions will be made available at the conference, and the authors will have the opportunity to give short presentations (of up to 15 minutes) on them.
