LICS 2008 Short Talk Submission Instructions

Call for short talks

Following a now established tradition, there will be two short talk sessions during LICS 2008. You may submit a 1-2 page abstract to give a 5-10 minute talk during one of two sessions described below. You must clearly indicate which session you would like to speak at. Short talks may be trailers for longer presentations at one of the affiliated workshops, or stand entirely on their own. Abstracts are made available on the LICS website but are not published in the conference proceedings. Provocative and programmatic presentations are welcome! Note that speakers in either session must be registered for LICS or CSF.

Session 1 (Tue Jun 24): Logic and Security (joint session with CSF)
Talks should be of interest to the security and logic communities, ideally building bridges or proposing new points of intersection or applications of one area in the other.

Session 2 (Thu Jun 26): Logic in Computer Science (LICS-only session)
Talks can be of any topic related to logic in computer science as summarized in the LICS call for papers.

Abstracts can be submitted at

Please check the appropriate box, if you would like your talk to be considered for the joint CSF/LICS session.
