  • interactive theorem proving
  • proof assistants
  • proof planning
  • proof checking
  • rewriting and unification
  • decision procedures for logical theories
  • combination of decision procedures
  • software and hardware verification
  • network and protocol verification
  • systems specification and synthesis
  • model checking
  • proof-carrying code
  • reasoning over ontologies
  • logic and reasoning for the semantic web
  • propositional reasoning
  • description logics
  • modal and temporal logics
  • nonmonotonic reasoning
  • constructive logic and type theory
  • lambda and combinatory calculi
  • logic and databases
  • logic programming

  • logical foundations of programming
  • computational interpretations of logic
  • logic and computational complexity
  • logic in artificial intelligence
  • knowledge representation and reasoning
  • reasoning about actions

Full and short papers are welcome. Full papers may be either regular papers containing new results, or experimental papers describing implementations or evaluations of systems. Short papers may describe work in progress or provide system descriptions. Submitted papers must be original, and not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference.

The full paper proceedings of LPAR-12 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNAI series. Authors of accepted full papers will be required to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to Springer-Verlag. The short paper proceedings of LPAR-12 will be published by the conference.
