Call For Papers

In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation, program development and verification, artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, and automated reasoning, there is an obvious need for using specialized formalisms and inference systems for selected tasks. To be usable in practice, these specialized systems must be combined with each other and integrated into general purpose systems. This has led – in many research areas – to the development of techniques and methods for the combination and integration of dedicated formal systems, as well as for their modularization and analysis.

The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems (FroCoS) traditionally focuses on these types of research questions and activities. Like its predecessors, FroCoS 2017 seeks to offer a common forum for research in the general area of combination, modularization, and integration of systems, with emphasis on logic-based ones, and of their practical use.


Topics of interest for FroCoS'17 include (but are not restricted to):

    combinations of logics (such as higher-order, first-order, temporal, modal, description or other non-classical logics);
    combination and integration methods in SAT and SMT solving;
    combination of decision procedures, satisfiability procedures, constraint solving techniques, or logical frameworks;
    combination of logics with probability and/or fuzzy measures;
    combinations and modularity in ontologies;
    integration of equational and other theories into deductive systems;
    hybrid methods for deduction, resolution and constraint propagation;
    hybrid systems in knowledge representation and natural language semantics;
    combined logics for distributed and multi-agent systems;
    logical aspects of combining and modularizing programs and specifications;
    integration of data structures into constraint logic programming and deduction;
    combinations and modularity in term rewriting;
    applications of methods and techniques to the verification and analysis of information systems.

Paper submission:

The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing original work, written in English, not overlapping with published or simultaneously submitted work to a journal or conference with archival proceedings. Selection criteria include accuracy and originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and quality of presentation. The page limit in Springer LNCS style is 16 pages.

Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system at

For each accepted paper, at least one of the authors is required to attend the symposium and present the work. Prospective authors must register a title and an abstract five days before the paper submission deadline.

Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained at:
