The Eleventh International Symposium on Games, Automata, Logics, and 
Formal Verification will take place on September 21 and 22, 2020.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the difficulties that are foreseen 
regarding travelling during next September, it has been decided to 
organise the symposium online. The organisation will be as follows:

-the authors of accepted papers will be invited to record a 25 minutes 
presentation of their paper

-these presentations will be made available to the registered 
participants (with no fees) to the conference a few days before the 

-four invited talks will be given live during the online conference

-each invited talk will be followed by a Q/A session on papers grouped 
by topics. Each such session will open with 5 minutes short 
presentations of each of the papers of the session by one of their author.



The aim of GandALF 2020 is to bring together researchers from academia 
and industry which are actively working in the fields of Games, 
Automata, Logics, and Formal Verification. The idea is to cover an ample 
spectrum of themes, ranging from theory to applications, and stimulate 

Papers focused on formal methods are especially welcome. Authors are 
invited to submit original research or tool papers on all relevant 
topics in these areas. Papers discussing new ideas that are at an early 
stage of development are also welcome. The topics covered by the 
conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

-Automata Theory
-Automated Deduction
-Computational aspects of Game Theory
-Concurrency and Distributed computation
-Decision Procedures
-Deductive, Compositional, and Abstraction Techniques for Verification
-Finite Model Theory
-First-order and Higher-order Logics
-Formal Languages
-Formal Methods for Systems Biology, Hybrid, Embedded, and Mobile Systems
-Games and Automata for Verification
-Game Semantics
-Logical aspects of Computational Complexity
-Logics of Programs
-Modal and Temporal Logics
-Model Checking
-Models of Reactive and Real-Time Systems
-Probabilistic Models (Markov Decision processes)
-Program Analysis and Software Verification
-Reinforcement Learning
-Run-time Verification and Testing
-Specification and Verification of Finite and Infinite-state Systems

– Abstract submission: June 13, 2020
– Paper submission: June 15, 2020
– Notification: July 20, 2020
– Camera-ready: August 25, 2020
- Conference: September 21-23, 2020

The proceedings will be published by Electronic Proceedings in 
Theoretical Computer Science. Authors of the best papers will be invited 
to submit a revised version of their work to a special issue of 
Information and Computation. The previous editions of GandALF already 
led to special issues of the International Journal of Foundations of 
Computer Science (GandALF 2010), Theoretical Computer Science (GandALF 
2011 and 2012), Information and Computation (GandALF 2013, 2014, 2016 
and 2017, the latter ones are still in progress), and Acta Informatica 
(GandALF 2015).

Submitted papers should not exceed fourteen (14) pages using EPTCS 
format (please use the LaTeX style provided at http://style.eptcs.org), 
be unpublished and contain original research. For papers reporting 
experimental results, authors are encouraged to make their data 
available with their submission. Submissions must be in PDF or PS format 
and will be handled via the EasyChair Conference system at the following
