The selected papers of TbiLLC 2011 will be published by LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer). The deadline for submitting manuscripts for the selected papers of TbiLLC 2011 is 1 March, 2012.

We have set an EasyChair account at


to handle the submissions.

The submission page has four categories: Language, Logic & Computation, Special Session on Frames, and Special Session on Logic & Agency. We request that you submit your paper under the category where your paper was accepted for presentation at the symposium.

The papers will be peer reviewed, and we expect the first round of reviewing to be completed by 1 June, 2012. The proceedings are expected to be published by the end of 2012. We will get back to you with the details on the format of the submissions later this month. The page limit for the accepted papers is roughly 15 pages LNCS style.

Typesetting guidlines

Please find below some guidelines for typesetting your contribution for the proceedings of the TbiLLC 2011. For the initial submission we do not require any specific layout or typesetting conventions - your submission is only required to be a 10-20 pages long .dvi, .ps, .pdf, .rtf or .doc file. However, in case of acceptance, your final submission must be fully compliant with the LNCS rules on typesetting. Therefore, we would advice you to already start looking at the guidelines to reduce the efforts for comprising the final version of your contribution.

The documents which clarify typesetting conventions (like paragraph titles, formulas, etc.) can be found at


Depending on the program used to write your contribution, you will find some more hints and some sample files at the following

If possible, please produce your figures electronically - please download see techinen.pdf - and integrate them into your text file.
