     FLoC'06: The 2006 Federated Logic Conference

           Call For Workshop Proposals

The fourth Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'06), will be held in
Seattle, Wash., in August 2006, at the Seattle Sheraton.
The following six conferences will participate in FLoC:
- Conference on Computer-Aided Verification (CAV).
- International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP).
- International Joint Conference on Automated Deduction (IJCAR).
- IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS).
- Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications (RTA).
- International Conference on Theory and Applications of Satisfiability Testing (SAT).

For more information see http://research.microsoft.com/floc06/.

The organizers have made arrangements to facilitate the running of
pre-, post-, and mid-FLoC workshops. Each workshop will
have its own registration. It is not necessary to register for FLoC in
order to attend workshops. Meeting rooms and accommodations have been
reserved at the Seattle Sheraton.

- Post-FLoC workshops:   Mon. August 21 - Tues. August 22, 2006.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops on topics relating logic, broadly understood, applied to 
computer science. Each workshop proposal must indicate one sponsoring
conference among the participating conferences.  (It is suggested
that prospective workshop organizers contact the conference program
chair before submitting a proposal.)
Workshops will have to be financially self-supporting, unless
the sponsoring conference accepts financial responsibility.
The FLoC Organizing Committee will determine the final 
list of accepted workshops based on the recommendations from the 
sponsoring conferences and subject to the availability of space and 

Proposals should consist of two parts. First, a short scientific
justification of the proposed topic, its significance, and the
particular benefits of a workshop. A second, organizational, part
should include:
- contact information about organizers
- proposed format and agenda
- procedures for selecting papers and participants
- duration (which may vary from one day to three days) and
  preferred period.
- proposed sponsoring conference

Additional organizational plans may include names of 
potential invited speakers, proposed demo sessions and tutorials,
plans for proceedings or other publications, etc.

Proposals are due by July 31, 2005.  Organizers will be notified by 
August 31, 2005.  Proposals should be submitted either electronically, and
should be addressed to the Program Chair of the sponsoring conference
as well as to
