Call for papers

Computer Science Logic (CSL) is the annual conference of the European Association for Computer Science Logic (EACSL), see It is an interdisciplinary conference, spanning across both basic and application oriented research in mathematical logic and computer science. CSL 2021 will be held as a virtual meeting on January 25-28, 2021.

Submission guidelines:

Submitted papers must be in English and must provide sufficient detail to allow the Programme Committee to assess the merits of the paper. Full proofs may appear in a clearly marked technical appendix which will be read at the reviewers’ discretion. Authors are strongly encouraged to include a well written introduction which is directed at all members of the PC.

The CSL 2021 conference proceedings will be published in Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs), see Authors are invited to submit contributed papers of no more than 15 pages in LIPIcs style (not including references), presenting unpublished work fitting the scope of the conference.

Papers may not be submitted concurrently to another conference with refereed proceedings. The PC chairs should be informed of closely related work submitted to a conference or a journal.

Papers authored or co-authored by members of the PC are not allowed.

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to attend the conference in person to present their papers.
