                       2nd  CALL FOR PAPERS


    Abstract submission:        February 8, 2013
    Paper submission:           February 15, 2013
    Acceptance Notification:    March 15, 2013
    Final Version Due:          April 15, 2013


ACL2 2013 is the major technical forum for users of the ACL2 theorem
proving system to present research related to the ACL2 theorem prover
and its applications. ACL2 2013 is the eleventh in the series of ACL2
workshops, which occur approximately every 18 months. ACL2 is an
industrial-strength automated reasoning system, the latest in the
Boyer-Moore family of theorem provers. The 2005 ACM Software System
Award was awarded to Boyer, Kaufmann, and Moore for their work in ACL2
and the other theorem provers in the Boyer-Moore family.

ACL2 2013 is a two-day workshop to be held in Laramie, WY, USA on May
30-31, 2013. The workshop will feature technical papers, invited
talks, and rump sessions discussing ongoing research. We invite
submissions of papers on any topic related to ACL2 and its
applications, and we strongly encourage submissions related to other
theorem provers or formal methods that are of interest to the ACL2
community. Suggested topics include but are not limited to the

    * software or hardware verification with ACL2,
    * formalizations of mathematics in ACL2,
    * new libraries, tools, and interfaces for ACL2,
    * novel uses of ACL2,
    * experiences with ACL2 in the classroom,
    * reports of and proposals for improvements of ACL2,
    * comparisons with other theorem provers,
    * comparisons with other programming or specification languages,
    * challenge problems and their solutions,
    * foundational issues related to ACL2, and
    * implementations connecting ACL2 with other systems.


Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format, as directed in
the ACL2 2013 website. Submissions should be prepared in the EPTCS
templates, available from http://style.eptcs.org.

The ACL2 Workshop accepts both long papers (up to sixteen pages) and
extended abstracts (up to two pages). Both categories of papers will
be fully refereed, but only long papers will be included in the final
workshop proceedings. At least one author of each accepted papers must
register for the workshop and give a presentation summarizing the
paper's results. Authors of long papers will have more time to present
their work at the workshop. One of the main advantages of the ACL2
Workshop is that attendees are already knowledgeable about ACL2, its
syntax, its basic commands, and the art of writing models in it. So
authors may assume that readers have this familiarity. The workshop
proceedings will be published as a volume of Electronic Proceedings in
Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).

Many papers presented at the workshop will describe interactions with
the theorem prover. We strongly encourage authors of such papers to
provide ACL2 script files (aka "books") along with instructions for
using these books in ACL2. Such supporting materials should follow the
guidelines at
http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/moore/acl2/books/index.html. For
accepted papers, these books will be mirrored on the ACL2 home page
and included in the ACL2 book repository.

The workshop will also feature ``rump sessions'', in which
participants can describe ongoing research related to ACL2. Proposals
for rump session presentations, including a title and short abstract,
will be accepted until the workshop.
