Workshop on automated synthesis

Natasha Alechina and Brian Logan

Week 1, August 3-7, 2020


This workshop is in the area of logic and computation. It aims to bring together work on using logic, games and automata for automatically generating plans and strategies for AI agents. Topics include but are not limited to: reactive synthesis, strategy synthesis under resource constraints, epistemic planning.

 Orna Kupferman (Hebrew University) agreed to give an invited talk.

The workshop will consist of a mixture of invited talks introducing topics in the area of the workshop and contributed talks by PhD students.  Workshop participants are required to register for ESSLLI 2020.

Submission format for contributed talks:

1) either a peer-reviewed published work in the area of the workshop, that you can submit in its original form or in the format below (but indicating which paper(s) it is based on)

2) or original work, up to 12 pages in Springer LNCS format (or similar size, single column).

Please submit a pdf file, not anonymised, to: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wasesslli20

The workshop will have no formal proceedings. If there is sufficient interest, we will explore the possibility of setting up a special issue of the Journal of Logic, Language and Information based on the workshop.

Important dates:

Submission deadline: 9 April 2020 (anywhere on Earth)

Notification: 15 April 2020

Organisers: Natasha Alechina (Utrecht University) and Brian Logan (University of Nottingham)
