LSFA 2011 - Sixth Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with

August 27th, 2011,
Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil


Logical and semantic frameworks are formal languages used to represent
logics, languages and systems. These frameworks provide foundations for
formal specification of systems and programming languages, supporting
tool development and reasoning.

The objective of this one-day workshop is to put together theoreticians
and practitioners to promote new techniques and results, from the
theoretical side, and feedback on the implementation and the use of such
techniques and results, from the practical side.

Topics of interest to this forum include, but are not limited to:

 * Logical frameworks
     o Proof theory
     o Type theory
     o Automated deduction
 * Semantic frameworks
     o Specification languages and meta-languages
     o Formal semantics of languages and systems
     o Computational and logical properties of semantic frameworks
 * Implementation of logical and/or semantic frameworks
 * Applications of logical and/or semantic frameworks

LSFA 2011 also aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing work in
progress, and therefore to provide feedback to authors on their
preliminary research. Submissions to the workshop will in the form of
full papers. The proceedings are produced only after the meeting, so
that authors can incorporate this feedback in the published papers.

Author notification:         June 30
Camera ready:                July 31st

Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form
full papers with at most 16 pages. They must be unpublished and not

papers, the authors will be invited to submit full versions of their
works that will be also reviewed to high standards. A special issue of
the first edition of the workshop appeared in the Journal of Algorithms,
a special issue of the second edition of the workshop appeared
in the J.IGPL and a special edition of TCS is being prepared with selected
contributions from the third and the forth editions of LSFA.

At least one of the authors should register at the conference. The
