Women in Logic (WiL) Workshop
Affiliated with the Thirty-Second Annual ACM/IEEE Symposium on
Logic in Computer Science (LICS) 20–23 June 2017 • Reykjavik, Iceland.
We are holding the first workshop ‘Women in Logic’ (WiL) as a LiCS associated workshop this year.
The workshop intends to follow the pattern of meetings such as “Women in Machine Learning”
(http://wimlworkshop.org/) or “Women in Engineering”
that have been taking place for quite a few years.
Women are chronically underrepresented in the LICS community; consequently they sometimes feel both conspicuous and isolated, and hence there is a risk that the under-representation is self-perpetuating.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for women in the field to increase awareness of one another and one another’s work, to combat the feeling of isolation. It will also provide an environment where women can present to an audience comprising mostly women, replicating the experience that most men have at most LiCS meetings, and lowering the stress of the occasion; we hope that this will be particularly attractive to early-career women.
Topics of interest of this workshop include but are not limited to the usual Logic in Computer Science (LiCS) topics.
These are: automata theory, automated deduction, categorical models and logics, concurrency and distributed computation, constraint programming, constructive mathematics, database theory, decision procedures, description logics, domain theory, finite model theory, formal aspects of program analysis, formal methods, foundations of computability, higher-order logic, lambda and combinatory calculi, linear logic, logic in artificial intelligence, logic programming, logical aspects of bioinformatics, logical aspects of computational complexity, logical aspects of quantum computation, logical frameworks, logics of programs, modal and temporal logics, model checking, probabilistic systems, process calculi, programming language semantics, proof theory, real-time systems, reasoning about security and privacy, rewriting, type systems and type theory, and verification.
