Special Issue on

Empirically Successful Computerized Reasoning (ESCoR)

Deadline: 4 December 2006

This call for papers is also available as a PDF flyer.


The special issue is devoted to all aspects of the implementation and deployment of working computerized reasoning systems. Reasoning in all forms (automated, interactive, etc) and all logics (classical, non-classical, all orders, etc) is of interest to the special issue. We welcome contributions on the following topics:



Papers on related subjects will also be considered.

Submissions should discuss aspects of "really working" systems and applications, and should not focus on theoretical ideas that have not yet been translated into working software.

The journal

The Journal of Applied Logic is an international journal published by Elsevier. The journal welcomes papers in the areas of logic which can be applied in other disciplines as well as application papers in those disciplines, the unifying theme being logics arising from modelling the human agent.


We expect full, high-quality papers (typically 20-40 pages) of original, previously unpublished research, which are written in English, and are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers previously presented in conference proceedings of limited circulation may be judged eligible for publication in revised form. Please add a comment about such prior presentation in the abstract field at the time the manuscript is submitted via the on-line submission system.

The normal reviewing process for journals will be used and papers should conform to the usual high standard of international journals. Submissions should be formatted according to JAL's author guidelines, and preferably be written in LaTeX. To be considered, submissions must be received no later than December 4, 2006.

Submission is via the EasyChair on-line submission system at
