Convert FOPC to Clause Form 1. Eliminate equivalence and implication symbols 2. Move inwards forming literals 3. Standardize variables apart - unique variable names eliminating scoping conflicts 4. Skolemize 5. Drop universal quantifiers 6. Distribute AND over OR 7. Flatten nested ANDs and ORs yielding CNF (POS) 8. Write in set notation standardizing variables apart in different clauses 3
