General information

ITP brings together researchers working in all areas of interactive theorem proving.  It combines the communities of two venerable meetings: the TPHOLs conference and the ACL2 workshop.  The inaugural meeting of ITP was held on 11-14 July 2010 in Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLoC, 9-21 July 2010). The second edition of ITP will take place in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, on 22-25 August 2011.

The program committee welcomes submissions on all aspects of interactive theorem proving and its applications.  Examples of typical topics include formal aspects of hardware or software (specification, verification, semantics, synthesis, refinement, compilation, etc.); formalization of significant bodies of mathematics; advances in theorem prover technology (automation, decision procedures, induction, combinations of systems and tools, etc.); other topics including those relating to user interfaces, education, comparisons of systems, and mechanizable logics; and concise and elegant worked examples ("Proof Pearls").

Submission Details

All papers must be submitted electronically, via EasyChair (submissions are closed)

Papers may be no longer than 16 pages and are to be submitted in PDF using the Springer "llncs" format.  Instructions may be found at with Latex source file typeinst.tex in the same directory. Submissions must describe original unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere, presented in a way that users of other systems can understand.  The proceedings will be published as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will be available to participants at the conference.

In addition to regular submissions, described above, there will be a "rough diamonds" section.  Rough diamond submissions are limited to six pages and may consist of an extended abstract.  They will be refereed: they will be expected to present innovative and promising ideas, possibly in an early form and without supporting evidence. Accepted diamonds will be published in the main proceedings.  They will be presented at the conference venue in a poster session.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the conference, and will be required to sign copyright release forms.  All submissions must be written in English.
