General Information

The 26th Automated Reasoning Workshop (ARW 2019) will take place at the University of Middlesex on 2-3 September 2019 and will be co-located with the prestigious TABLEAUX 2019 and FroCoS 2019 conferences.

The workshop provides an informal forum for the automated reasoning community to discuss recent work, new ideas and applications, and current trends. It aims to bring together researchers from all areas of automated reasoning in order to foster links among researchers from various disciplines; among theoreticians, implementers and users alike.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Theorem proving in classical and non-classical logics;
  • Interactive theorem proving, logical frameworks, proof assistants, proof planning
  • Reasoning methods:
    • Saturation-based, instantiation-based, tableau, SAT
    • Equational reasoning, unification
    • Constraint satisfaction
    • Decision procedures, SMT
    • Combining reasoning systems
    • Non-monotonic reasoning, commonsense reasoning
    • Abduction, induction
    • Model checking, model generation, explanation
  • Formal methods to specifying, deriving, transforming and verifying computer systems, requirements and software
  • Logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning:
    • Ontology engineering and reasoning
    • Domain specific reasoning (spatial, temporal, epistemic,agents, etc)
  • Logic and functional programming, deductive databases
  • Implementation issues and empirical results, demos
  • Machine learning and automated reasoning systems
  • Practical experience and applications of automated reasoning

The workshop will be highly interactive, giving all attendees an opportunity to participate. There will be sessions for displaying posters and open discussion sessions organised around specific topics such as “Automated Reasoning and Artificial Intelligence”.


We invite the submission of camera-ready, two-page extended abstracts about recent work, work in progress, or a system description. The abstract can describe work that has already been published elsewhere. The main objective of the abstracts is to spread information about recent work in our community, and we expect to accept most on-topic submissions, but we may ask for revisions.

The call for papers is available in plain text format.

To prepare your submission, please use the ARW LaTeX style file provided from the workshop website. Each submission should include the names and complete addresses (including email) of all authors. For the final versions we require all sources (TeX file and any input files). Please send your submissions via EasyChair here.


Each workshop participant will be asked to give a short talk (around 10 minutes depending on time constraints) to introduce their research. Each participant will also be allocated space in a poster session (please make your posters A1 size), where they can further present and discuss their work. Please prepare posters for the event.

Student Grants

There is a small number of grants available for PhD students. Applications must include:

  • an abstract of at most 2 pages following the formatting details on the submissions page.
  • a recommendation letter from their supervisor
  • a covering letter from the student

Recipients of grants are expected to present their work in the poster sessions. The abstracts will be published in the workshop notes.

The ARW committee will review the applications. Preference will be given to those who would not otherwise have resources to attend the workshop, and whose attendance would benefit both the applicant and the workshop.

Applicants who receive grants will be allowed to register at a reduced student registration rate.

All applications should be sent to using ARW2019 Student Grant as the subject of the email. The deadline for applying for these grants is 18 June 2019.
