			 IJCAR workshop on

	 Issues in the Design and Experimental Evaluation of
		Systems for Modal and Temporal Logics

		 Siena, June 18-19, 2001
************************************************************************


Topic 
*****
The aim of this workshop is to bring together people who are
interested in the development and experimental evaluation of systems
for modal, temporal and description logics. The emphasis of the
workshop is on the identification of open problems and the discussion
of possible solutions under the theme:
- - Which are the key issues in the design of modal and temporal systems?
- - What is a good benchmark set?
- - What is a good comparative evaluation?

The workshop will consist of three parts on each of these questions,
with invited speaker starting the discussion followed by contributions
from the participants. An overall panel will conclude the
workshop. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to)
- - Tableaux vs Translations Methods
- - SAT-based vs BDD-based techniques
- - Running Time vs Scaling abilities
- - Random Benchmarks vs Industrial Case Studies
