RuleML 2016, the tenth event in this series, will be held at Stony Brook University, USA. RuleML is the leading conference to build bridges between academia and industry in the field of rules and its applications, especially as part of the semantic technology stack. It is devoted to rule-based programming and rule-based systems including production rules systems, logic programming rule engines, and business rules engines/business rules management systems; Semantic Web rule languages and rule standards (e.g., RuleML, SWRL, RIF, PRR, SBVR, DMN, CL, Prolog); rule-based event processing languages (EPLs) and technologies; and research on inference rules, transformation rules, decision rules, production rules, and ECA rules. * RuleML 2016 will host multiple special tracks, as well as hosting the 10th International Rule Challenge, and the 6th RuleML Doctoral Consortium. Special topic tracks: Smart Contracts, Blockchain and Rules Track, Constraint Handling Rules Track, Event Driven Architectures and Active Database Systems Track, Legal Rules and Reasoning Track, Rule- and Ontology-Based Data Access and Transformation Track, and Rule Induction and Learning Track. * Industry Track The RuleML 2016 Industry Track targets businesses and the private sector interested in sharing, exploring, and learning about the use of rules and rule technologies for solving real life business problems. * Further details: http://2016.ruleml.org/calls * RuleML main track and special tracks dates (not including Industry Track): - Register Title and Abstract in Easychair March 11, 2016 - Paper Submission: March 18, 2016 - Author Notification May 4, 2016 - Camera Ready May 18, 2016 - Conference: 5-8 July, 2016 SMART CONTRACTS, BLOCKCHAIN, AND RULES TRACK of RULEML 2016 Call for Papers 6-9 July, 2016, Stony Brook University, USA http://2016.ruleml.org/calls/blockchain-enabled-smart-contracts-and-rules * Smart Contracts have emerged as means to digitalize and (semi-)automatically enforce (legal) contracts, backed by blockchain technologies --- a set of recent technologies that appeared the first time in the context of the cryptocurrencies bitcoin, but are now being transitioned to different domains. Smart contracts are envisioned to essentially be user-defined programs that specify rules governing transactions, and that are enforced by a distributed network of peers. Traditional rule technologies have a high relevance in the context of Smart Contracts - they can be used for specification, reasoning, and enforcement of smart contracts, among others. At the same time, Smart Contracts represent a potential new application area of traditional rule technologies. The goal of this track is to identify opportunities and challenges for use of rule technologies in Smart Contracts, eventually shaping a better understanding of what Smart Contracts actually are and what they could be used for. During the last years the International Web Rule Symposium (RuleML) has been a leading international conference on research, applications, languages and standards for rule technologies. Due to the relevance of rules in Smart Contracts, it is natural that the emerging area of Smart Contracts finds RuleML a relevant venue for dissemination and that RuleML uses this opportunity to expand the applicability of rule technologies. * Important dates: Register Title and Abstract in Easychair: March 11, 2016 Paper Submission: March 18, 2016 Author Notification: May 4, 2016 Camera Ready: May 18, 2016 Conference: 6-9 July, 2016 23rd WORKSHOP ON LOGIC, LANGUAGE, INFORMATION AND COMPUTATION (WoLLIC 2016) Call for Papers August 16th-19th, 2016, Puebla, Mexico http://wollic.org.wollic2016/ * WoLLIC is an annual international forum on inter-disciplinary research involving formal logic, computing and programming theory, and natural language and reasoning.

THIRD SYMPOSIUM FOR HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF PROGRAMMING (HaPoP 2016) Call for Papers June 25, 2016, CNAM, Paris, France www.hapoc.org/hapop3 http://hapoc.org/node/167 Submission deadline: March 31, 2016 An affiliated event of CiE 2016, Paris * AIMS: The aim of the current symposium is to offer an opportunity for historical and philosophical reflection on operating systems and the programs they coordinate. Our approach is interdisciplinarity and openness towards different fields relevant to HaPoC. We were and are strongly convinced that such trans- and interdisciplinarity is necessary if one wants to reflect on a discipline such as computer science with its multidimensional nature. The current symposium will be organized in a similar manner and invites researchers coming from a diversity of backgrounds, including historians, philosophers, logicians and computer scientists who want to engage with topics relevant to the history and philosophy of programming and more specifically that of operating systems. * TOPICS of the symposium include but are not restricted to historical and philosophical reflections on: - Origin, evolution and future of OSs - Design and Epistemology of User Interfaces - Principles of Data Access, Control and Sharing, especially in relation to OSs (e.g. the Bell-La Padula model) - Privacy and Security in OSs - Batch processing and time sharing systems - Models, problems and techniques of concurrency, parallelism and distributed systems - Open source vs corporate software - Programming paradigms and techniques (e.g. pair-programming) * IMPORTANT DATES: - Submission deadline: March 31, 2016 - Notification of acceptance: April 22, 2016 * INVITED SPEAKERS: - Daniel Glazman (Disruptive Innovations) - Warren Toomey (Bond University, Australia) * SYMPOSIUM CHAIRS: Liesbeth De Mol (CNRS, UMR8163), Raphael Fournier-S'niehotta (CNAM), Baptiste Meles (CNRS, UMR7117), Giuseppe Primiero (Middlesex University) LFCS 30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION + WADLERFEST Call for Participation 11-13 April 2016, Edinburgh LFCS30: http://events.inf.ed.ac.uk/lfcs30/ WadlerFest: http://events.inf.ed.ac.uk/wf2016/ * Founded in 1986 by Rod Burstall, Robin Milner, Gordon Plotkin and Matthew Hennessy, the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science is a community of theoretical computer scientists with interests in research topics such as concurrency, semantics, categories, algebra, types, logic, algorithms, complexity, databases, and modelling, and their applications in Computer Science and beyond.

SECOND EDITION OF THE WORKSHOP ON HIGHER-DIMENSIONAL REWRITING AND APPLICATIONS (HDRA 2016) Call for Papers 25-26 June 2016, Porto, Portugal http://hdra.gforge.inria.fr/ Co-located with the FSCD conference * Over recent years, rewriting methods have been generalized from strings and terms to richer algebraic structures such as operads, monoidal categories, and more generally higher-dimensional categories. These extensions of rewriting fit in the general scope of higher-dimensional rewriting theory, which has emerged as a unifying algebraic framework. This approach allows one to perform homotopical and homological analysis of rewriting systems (Squier theory). It also provides new computational methods in the study of coherence of higher-dimensional algebraic structures, in combinatorial algebra (Artin-Tits monoids, Coxeter and Garside structures), in homotopical and homological algebra (construction of cofibrant replacements, Koszulness property). The workshop is open to all topics concerning higher-dimensional generalizations and applications of rewriting theory, including - higher-dimensional rewriting: polygraphs / computads, higher-dimensional generalizations of string/term/graph rewriting systems, etc. - homotopical invariants of rewriting systems: homotopical and homological finiteness properties, Squier theory, algebraic Morse theory, coherence results in algebra and higher-dimensional category theory, etc. - linear rewriting: presentations and resolutions of algebras and operads, Grobner bases and generalizations, homotopy and homology of algebras and operads, Koszul duality theory, etc. - applications of higher-dimensional and linear rewriting and their interactions with other fields: calculi for quantum computations, algebraic lambda-calculi, proof nets, topological models for concurrency, homotopy type theory, combinatorial group theory, etc. - implementations: the workshop will also be interested in implementation issues in higher-dimensional rewriting and will allow demonstrations of prototypes of existing and new tools in higher-dimensional rewriting. * Invited speakers - Michael Batanin (to be confirmed) - Joachim Kock - Pawel Sobocinski * Important dates - Submission: 15 April, 2016 - Notification: 11 May, 2016 - Final version: 27 May, 2016 - Conference: 25-26 June, 2016 * Organizers - Yves Guiraud (INRIA / Universite Paris 7) - Philippe Malbos (Universite Claude Bernard Lyon 1) - Samuel Mimram (Ecole Polytechnique) 14TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FORMAL MODELING AND ANALYSIS OF TIMED SYSTEMS (FORMATS 2016) First Call for Papers http://formats2016.lsv.fr August 24-26, 2016, Quebec City, Canada colocated with CONCUR'16 and QEST'16 Submission: April 15 (Abstract), April 22 (Paper) * Topics - Foundations and Semantics Theoretical foundations of timed systems and languages; new models and logics or analysis and comparison of existing models (like automata, Petri nets, or process algebras involving quantitative time; hybrid automata; probabilistic automata and logics). - Methods and Tools Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and software tools for analyzing or synthesizing timed or hybrid systems and for resolving temporal constraints (scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis, optimization, model checking, testing, constraint solving, etc.) - Applications: Adaptation and specialization of timing technology in application domains in which timing plays an important role (real-time software, embedded control, hardware circuits, and problems of scheduling in manufacturing and telecommunication). * Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=formats2016 * Important Dates - Abstract Submission: April 15, 2016 - Paper Submission: April 22, 2016 - Notification: June 4, 2016 - Final paper due: June 11, 2016 - Conference: August 24-26, 2016 * General Chair - Josee Desharnais, (U.
