Posted:
Jun 20, 1996 3:40 AM


Please note that the Friday 21 June is the closing date for early registration for TPHOLs'96. After that, the cost of attending the conference will rise slightly. You need send no money to register, but you must register now if you wish to pay the lower fee on arrival at the conferecnce.
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
1996 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THEOREM PROVING IN HIGHER ORDER LOGICS
************************************************************ * If you have Web access, all the following information * * and more is available in a nicer format from: * * * * http://www.abo.fi/~jharriso/TPHOLs96.html * ************************************************************
The 1996 International Conference on Theorem Proving in Higher Order Logics will be held on 2730 August 1996 (Tuesday to Friday) in Turku (Abo in Swedish) in the Southwest corner of Finland. Two tutorials are also included, starting after midday on Monday 26th August.
The conference will be a venue for presentations on the following topics, among others: advances in interactive theorem proving, proof automation and decision procedures, applications of mechanized theorem proving, comparison between different theorem proving approaches, exploiting external tools within theorem provers and incorporating theorem provers into larger systems.
Previous conferences have been at Cambridge (UK), Aarhus, Davis, Leuven, Vancouver, Malta and Salt Lake City. This conference is being organized by the Turku Centre for Computer Science (TUCS) and Abo Akademi University.
*********************************************************************** * The third Workshop on Designing Correct Circuits (DCC) will be held * * from Monday 2 September to Wednesday 4 September 1996 at Bastad in * * Southern Sweden. This is an excellent opportunity for researchers * * from outside Europe to attend both conferences. * ***********************************************************************
