Call for Location for FSCD 2024

The FSCD conference covers all aspects of Formal Structures for
Computation and Deduction from theoretical foundations to
applications.  The annual FSCD conference comprises the main
conference and a considerable number of affiliated workshops
(expectedly, more than ten).

We invite proposals for locations to host the 9th FSCD International
Conference to be held during the summer of 2024. Previous (and
upcoming) FSCD meetings include:

FSCD 2016 in Porto (Portugal);
FSCD 2017 in Oxford (UK) co-located with ICFP 2017;
FSCD 2018 in Oxford (UK) as part of FLoC 2018;
FSCD 2019 in Dortmund (Germany);
FSCD 2020 in Paris (France) co-located with IJCAR 2020;
FSCD 2021 in Buenos Aires (Argentina);
FSCD 2022 in Haifa (Israel) as part of FLOC2022;
FSCD 2023 in Rome (Italy).

The deadline for proposals is *** 27th June 2022 ***. Proposals should
be sent to the FSCD Steering Committee Chair (see contact information
below). We encourage proposers to register their intention informally
as soon as possible.

Selected proposals are to be presented at the business meeting of FSCD
2022 taking place at Haifa in August 2022.  The final decision about
hosting and organising of FSCD 2024 will be taken by the SC after an
advisory vote of the members of the community in attendance at the
business meeting.

Proposals should address the following points:

* FSCD Conference Chair (complete name and current position), host
   institution, FSCD Local Committee (complete names and current
   positions), availability of student-volunteers.

* National, regional, and local government and industry support, both
   organizational and financial.

* Accessibility to the location (i.e., transportation) and
   attractiveness of the proposed site. Accessibility can include both
   information about local transportation and travel information to the
   location (flight and/or train connections), as well as estimated

* Appropriateness of the proposed dates (including consideration of
   holidays/other events during the period), hotel prices, and access
   to dormitory facilities for students.

* Estimated costs on registration for the conference and workshops,
   both for regular and student participants.

* Conference and exhibit facilities for the anticipated number of
   registrants (typically around 200). For example:
   = number, capacity and audiovisual equipment of meeting rooms;
   = a large plenary session room that can hold all the registrants;
   = enough rooms for parallel session workshops/tutorials in the two
   days before and the two days after the main conference;
   = internet connectivity and workstations for demos/competitions;
   = catering services;
   = presence of professional staff.

* Support for hybrid attendance to the conference.

* Residence accommodations and food services in a range of price
   categories and close to the conference venue, for example, number
   and cost range of hotels, and availability and cost of dormitory
   rooms (e.g., at local universities) and kind of services they offer.

* Other relevant information, which can include information about
   leisure activities and attractiveness of the location (e.g.,
   cultural and historical aspects, touristic activities, etc...).
