new research area at the frontier of logic and computer science.
The practically motivated design of logics reflecting the structure
of low level languages (such as heaps, registers and code pointers)
and low level properties of programs (such as resource usage)
goes hand in hand with the some of the most advanced contemporary
researches in semantics and proof theory, including classical
realizability and forcing, double orthogonality, parametricity,
linear logic, game semantics, uniformity, categorical semantics,
explicit substitutions, abstract machines, implicit complexity
and sublinear programming.

The LOLA workshop, affiliated with LICS, will bring together
researchers interested in the various aspects of the relationship
between logic and low level languages and programs.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

     - Typed assembly languages
     - Certified assembly programming
     - Certified and certifying compilation
     - Proof-carrying code
     - Program optimization
     - Modal logic and realizability in machine code
     - Realizability and double orthogonality in assembly code,
     - Implicit complexity, sublinear programming and Turing machines
     - Parametricity, modules and existential types
     - General references, Kripke models and recursive types
     - Closures and explicit substitutions
     - Linear logic and separation logic
     - Game semantics, abstract machines and hardware synthesis
     - Monoidal and premonoidal categories, traces and effects

LOLA is an informal workshop aiming at a high degree of
useful interaction amongst the participants, welcoming
proposals for talks on work in progress, overviews of larger
programmes, position presentations and short tutorials as well
as more traditional research talks describing new results.

The programme committee will select the workshop presentations
from submitted proposals, which may take the form either of
a short abstract or of a longer (published or unpublished) paper
describing completed work.

The submissions should be made by easychair at


To be announced soon.
