Seventh International Workshop on Logical Frameworks
       and Meta-Languages: Theory and Practice


Copenhagen, Denmark, September 9, 2012
Affiliated with the
  International Conference on Functional Programming



Paper submission:        June 1, 2012
Author notification:     June 18, 2012
Final versions due:      July 2, 2012
Workshop day:            September 9, 2012

Logical frameworks and meta-languages form a common substrate for
representing, implementing, and reasoning about a wide variety of
deductive systems of interest in logic and computer science. Their
design and implementation on the one hand and their use in reasoning
tasks ranging from the correctness of software to the properties of
formal computational systems on the other hand have been the focus of
considerable research over the last two decades. This workshop will
bring together designers, implementors, and practitioners to discuss
various aspects impinging on the structure and utility of logical
frameworks, including the treatment of variable binding, inductive and
co-inductive reasoning techniques and the expressivity and lucidity of
the reasoning process.

The broad subject areas of LFMTP'12 are:

* Encoding and reasoning about the meta-theory of programming
   languages and related formally specified systems.
* Theoretical and practical issues concerning the treatment of
   variable binding, especially the representation of, and reasoning
   about, datatypes defined from binding signatures.
* Logical treatments of inductive and co-inductive definitions and
   associated reasoning techniques.
* Case studies of meta-programming, and the mechanization of the
   (meta)theory of descriptions of programming languages and other
   calculi. Papers focusing on logic translations and on experiences
   with encoding programming languages theory are particularly
