First call for papers

                  M4M-4 (Methods for Modalities 2005)

   The workshop "Methods for Modalities" (M4M) aims to bring together 
researchers interested in developing algorithms, verification methods and 
tools based on modal logics. Here the term "modal logics" is conceived 
broadly, including description logic, guarded fragments, conditional logic, 
temporal and hybrid logic, etc.

    To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will feature a 
number of invited talks by leading scientists, research presentations aimed 
at highlighting new developments, and submissions of system demonstrations.
We strongly encourage young researchers and students to submit papers and 
posters, especially for experimental and prototypical software tools which 
are related to modal logics.

   Regular papers should not exceed the length of 12 pages; short papers are 
up to six pages of length, and posters and tools can be presented on two 
pages of text. Proceedings will appear online and as a Humboldt university 
report. Depending on the submissions, papers may be selected to appear in a 
special issue of an appropriate journal.
Submission is by email. Either Postscript or PDF files can be sent to 
m4m-4 at first.fraunhofer.de.

   The workshop will take place in Berlin - Adlershof, Germany, which is one 
of the worlds largest science and technology areas, comprising twelve 
research institutes, six faculties of the Humboldt University of Berlin, and 
more than 370 high tech companies. It is hosted by FIRST, the Fraunhofer 
Institute of Computer Architecture and Software Technology, in collaboration 
with the computer science institute of Humboldt University.
