Workshop on Logics for Resources, Processes and Programs
(LRPP 2012)

1st July 2012, Manchester, UK

(affiliated with IJCAR 2012, Manchester, UK)



A one day workshop on `Logics for Resources, Processes, and Programs'
will be held the 1st July 2012 in conjunction with the IJCAR 2012
Conference in Manchester, UK, with D. Galmiche and D. Pym as organizers.

The purpose of this workshop would be to discuss recent results on
logics, including systems formulated in the style of Hoare and
Hennessy-Milner, for modelling resources, processes, programs, and
their interactions. We envisage a range of perspectives:
proof-theoretic foundations, including decidability and complexity;
semantic foundations (e.g., new resource semantics); specification of
properties and behaviours; verification and analysis of programs and
systems. It should help to establish and publicize a research agenda
for such logics and their use in the development of trusted

The workshop is intended to provide a forum for discussion between
researchers interested in logics of resources (from foundations to
related calculi and applications) and researchers interested in
languages and methods for specification of mobile, distributed,
concurrent systems and their verification.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to,
the following:

- Logics for resources: semantics and proof theory;
- Process calculi, concurrency, resource-distribution;
- Reasoning about programs and systems;
- Extensions of logics; e.g., with modalities;
- Languages of assertions, languages based on resource logics (query
   languages, pointers, trees, and graphs) and reasoning;
- Theorem proving and model checking in resource logics:
   decision procedures, strategies, complexity results.

Researchers interested in presenting their works are invited to send an
extended abstract (up to 10 pages) by e-mail submissions of Postscript
files to D. Galmiche (Didier.Galmiche at loria.fr) and D. Pym
(d.j.pym at abdn.ac.uk) before May 15 2012.

Papers will be reviewed by peers, typically members of
the Programme Committee.

Additional information will be available through WWW address:

Hardcopies of the preliminary proceedings will be distributed at the
workshop and a Special Issue of a Journal on these topics is expected
after the workshop.
