First International ARCADE (Automated Reasoning: Challenges, Applications, Directions, Exemplary Achievements) Workshop
Sprache des Titels:
The main goal of this workshop is to bring together key people from various sub-communities of automated reasoning?such as SAT/SMT, resolution, tableaux, theory-specific calculi (e.g. for description logic, arithmetic, set theory), interactive theorem proving?to discuss the present, past, and future of the field. The intention is to provide an opportunity to discuss broad issues facing the community.
The structure of the workshop will be informal. We invite extended abstracts in the form of non-technical position statements aimed at prompting lively discussion. The title of the workshop is indicative of the kind of discussions we would like to encourage:
Challenges: What are the next grand challenges for research on automated reasoning? Thereby, we refer to problems, solving which would imply a significant impact (e.g., shift of focus) on the CADE community and beyond. Roughly ten years ago SMT was one such challenge.
Applications: Is automated reasoning applicable in real-world (industrial) scenarios. Should reports on such applications be encouraged at a venue like CADE, perhaps by means of a special case study paper category?
Directions: Based on the grand challenges and requirements from real- world applications, what are the research directions the community should promote? What bridges between the different sub-communities of CADE need to be strengthened? What new communities should be included (if at all)? For example, following Reiner Hahnle?s question in the AAR Newsletter, is there a place at CADE for research on usable automated reasoning (in resemblance to the flourishing topic of usable security)?
Exemplary Achievements: What are the landmark achievements of automated reasoning whose influence reached far beyond the CADE community itself? What can we learn from those successes when shaping our future research?
