GENERAL INFORMATION
 The 10th International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
 (FroCoS 2015) will be held in Wroclow, Poland, from September 21 to
 September 24, 2015. Its main goal is to disseminate and promote
 progress in research areas related to the development of techniques
 for the integration, combination, and modularization of formal
 systems together with their analysis.

 FroCos 2015 will be co-located with the 23rd International
 Conference on Automated Reasoning with Analytic Tableaux and Related
 Methods (TABLEAUX 2015) to be held also on September 21-24, 2015.
 The local organization of both events is handled by Hans de Nivelle.  

SCOPE OF CONFERENCE 
 In various areas of computer science, such as logic, computation,
 program development and verification, artificial intelligence,
 knowledge representation, and automated reasoning, there is an
 obvious need for using specialized formalisms and inference systems
 for selected tasks. To be usable in practice, these specialized
 systems must be combined with each other and integrated into general
 purpose systems. This has led---in many research areas---to the
 development of techniques and methods for the combination and
 integration of dedicated formal systems, as well as for their
 modularization and analysis.

 The International Symposium on Frontiers of Combining Systems
 (FroCoS) traditionally focusses on these types of research questions
 and activities. Like its predecessors, FroCoS 2015 seeks to offer a
 common forum for research in the general area of combination,
 modularization, and integration of systems, with emphasis on
 logic-based ones, and of their practical use.

 Typical topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
   * combinations of logics (such as higher-order, first-order,
     temporal, modal, description or other non-classical logics);
   * combination and integration methods in SAT and SMT solving;
   * combination of decision procedures, satisfiability
     procedures, constraint solving techniques, or logical 
     frameworks;
   * combinations and modularity in ontologies;
   * integration of equational and other theories into deductive
     systems;
   * hybrid methods for deduction, resolution and constraint
     propagation;
   * hybrid systems in knowledge representation and natural
     language semantics;
   * combined logics for distributed and multi-agent systems;
   * logical aspects of combining and modularizing programs and
     specifications;
   * integration of data structures into constraint logic
     programming and deduction;
   * combinations and modularity in term rewriting;
   * applications of methods and techniques to the verification and
     analysis of information systems.

INVITED SPEAKERS
 [TO BE ANNOUNCED]

PUBLICATION DETAILS
 The proceedings of the symposium will be published in the
 Springer LNAI/LNCS series.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
 The program committee seeks high-quality submissions describing
 original work, written in English, not overlapping with published or
 simultaneously submitted work to a journal or conference with
 archival proceedings. Selection criteria include accuracy and
 originality of ideas, clarity and significance of results, and
 quality of presentation. The page limit in Springer LNCS style is 16
 pages.

 Papers must be edited in LaTeX using the llncs style and must be
 submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair system at
 the following address:

       https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=frocos2015.

 For each accepted paper, at least one of the authors is required to
 attend the symposium and present the work. Prospective authors must
 register a title and an abstract ten days before the paper
 submission deadline. Further information about paper submissions is
 available at the conference website that can be found at the
 beginning of this call for papers.
