The 12th Workshop on Automated Reasoning
Bridging the gap between theory and practice

29th and 30th July 2005
Co-located with IJCAI 2005


Continuing the highly successful series of Workshops on Automated Reasoning, this event will provide an informal forum for the automated reasoning community. The ARW workshop series aims to bring together researchers from all areas of automated reasoning in order to foster links and facilitate cross-fertilisation of ideas among researchers from various disciplines; among researchers from academia, industry and government; and between theoreticians and practitioners.

Details of the ARW organisation and of previous ARW events can be found at

This year, ARW will have a day focussed on applications of automated reasoning applied to e-Science.


The workshop will cover the full breadth and diversity of automated reasoning and will include topics such as:

Invited Speakers

Alan Frisch Title: Symmetry and the Generation of Constraint Models.
Mike Gordon Title: Using a Theorem Prover to Implement a Compiler.
Marta Kwiatkowska Title: Probabilistic Model Checking for the Grid and on the Grid.
Luc Moreau Title: Towards Provenance based Reasoning in E-Science.

Submission of Abstracts

We invite interested persons to submit a camera-ready two-page abstract about recent work or work in progress, or a system description. Anyone wishing to attend but not interested in presenting should send a shorter position statement (1/2 - 1 page).

Submissions should be sent in in either Postscript or PDF format by email to the workshop organisers at:

Each submission should include the names and complete addresses (including email) of all authors. Correspondence will be sent to the first author, unless otherwise indicated. The main objective of the abstracts is to spread information about recent work in our community. Abstracts will be published in informal workshop notes and be made available by WWW.

Panel Sessions

Proposals for panel sessions should be made as soon as possible. Please email the proposal to

Student Grants

We have a limited number of grants available to PhD students who wish to attend ARW 2005. To indicate your interest please send a short email to Ulle Endriss ( anytime before 1st of May 2005.

Important Dates

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1st May 2005
Notification to authors: 31st May 2005
Deadline for student bursaries applications: 1st May 2005
Conference: 29th and 30th July 2005

Format of Workshop

The workshop is intended to be an inclusive event, with participants encouraged from the broad spectrum covered by the field of automated reasoning. We encourage the participation of experienced researchers as well as those new to the field, especially students.

Note that we expect to devote one day in the workshop to applications of automated reasoning in e-Science and especially invite contributions on this topic.
