ARW 2013
20th Automated Reasoning Workshop
School of Computing, University of Dundee, UK
11-12 April 2013

Student Grant Application Deadline: 18 February 2013
Abstract Submission Deadline: 3 March 2013


The 20th Automated Reasoning Workshop (ARW 2013) will be held at the University of Dundee from 11 to 12 April 2013.


The workshop will provide 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 and facilitate cross-fertilisation of ideas 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 experiences 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. This year, the two chosen topics will be Machine Learning in Automated Reasoning and Automated Reasoning in Economics . They will follow the invited lectures devoted to these topics. If you wish to propose a discussion session, please email your proposals to organisers at



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. Correspondence will be sent to the first author, unless otherwise indicated.

Submissions should be sent using Easychair. For the final versions we require all sources (tex file and any input files).


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


Each workshop participant will be allocated a 10-15 minute slot (depending on time constraints), for a short talk 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.


There is a limited number of grants available to PhD students who wish to attend ARW 2013. The application deadline is 18 February 2013. Please refer to the workshop website for details.
