Welcome to the website of GandALF 2023, the Fourteenth International Symposium on Games, Automata, Logics, and Formal Verification, that will take place in Udine, Italy, on 18–20 September 2023. The conference will be hosted by the University of Udine (Sala Gusmani, Palazzo Antonini) and it is organized in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics (DMIF).

The aim of GandALF 2023 is to bring together researchers from academia and industry who 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 cross-fertilization. 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
  • Synthesis

The proceedings will be published by Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a revised version of their work to a special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science.

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, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020), Acta Informatica (GandALF 2015) and Logical Methods in Computer Science (GandALF 2021 and 2022).


Submitted papers should not exceed 14 pages (excluding references and clearly marked appendices) using EPTCS format (please use the LaTeX style provided here), 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 format and will be handled via EasyChair at the following address:
