Call For Papers: Automated Deduction in Geometry (ADG 2008), Shanghai, China

Call for Papers
ADG 2008 (Automated Deduction in Geometry) in Shanghai, China.

The deadline is on 10th June but note that an extended abstract on work in progress is sufficient for submission.

Automated Deduction in Geometry (ADG)
Announcement and Call for Papers
East China Normal University Shanghai (China)
September 22-24, 2008

The workshop ADG is a leading international forum to exchange ideas and views, to present research results and progress, and to demonstrate software tools on the intersection between geometry and automated deduction. The main objective of this workshop is to encourage/promote/guide research efforts in the area in an informal setting.

The previous six workshops were held in Pontevedra (2006), Gainesville (2004), Linz (2002), Zurich (2000), Beijing (1998), and Toulouse(1996). The seventh workshop ADG 2008 will be hosted by East China Normal University (ECNU) on its campus in Shanghai, China, from 22nd to 24th September 2008.

Important Dates

Extended abstract/paper submission for presentation at the workshop:* June 10, 2008

Notification of acceptance or rejection:* July 10, 2008

Workshop taking place:* September 22-24, 2008

Submission Guidelines

Extended abstracts (or full papers if you wish). No page limits.The extended abstracts (or the introduction of the full papers) must address the following aspects explicitly. * Problem: "What is the problem/question/objective?* Motivation: "Why do we work on the problem? What is the importance?"* State of the Art: "What has been done already on the problem?"* Contribution: "What is the main original contribution?"* Main Idea: "What is the main idea underlying the contribution"? Electronic submission as PDF is required. It will be greatly appreciated if the submissions follow the standard Springer Proceedings format llncs2e (see for moreinformation and download of the LaTeX and TeX style files).

Submit your contribution via our paper submission page at EasyChair:
If you have problems with the submission of your paper or questionsconcerning EasyChair, please contact Submit it by June 10, 2008.


The submitted contributions will be subject to a summary review by the Program Committee, bearing in mind that this first review is mainlyfor presentation, NOT for publication.

Publication-Extended abstracts or full papers accepted for presentation at theworkshop will be available during the meeting, published as an internal document for the participants. We plan to ask the authors of the extended abstracts (and possibly full papers) accepted for presentation at the workshop to submit theirfull and/or revised papers for publication in some formal proceedingsof ADG 2006 after the workshop. The full papers (submitted after the meeting) will be formally reviewed by PC members and external referees. It is expected that the accepted full papers will be published as aspecial issue of some journal or in the Springer Lecture Notes inArtificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. The proceedings of ADG 1996,ADG 1998, ADG 2000, ADG 2002, ADG 2004, and ADG 2006 appeared as LNAI1360, LNAI 1669, LNAI 2061, LNAI 2930, LNAI 3763, and LNAI 4869respectively.
