DICE is a thematic workshop in the field of Implicit Computational 
Complexity, where researchers in the area can meet and discuss their 
most recent results. It takes place annually as part of ETAPS.

The area of Implicit Computational Complexity (ICC) has grown from 
several proposals for using logic and formal methods to provide 
languages for complexity-bounded computation (e.g. PTIME, LOGSPACE 
computation). Its aim is to study computational complexity without 
reference to external measuring conditions but only in terms of language 
restrictions or logical/computational principles implying complexity 

This workshop focuses on ICC methods related to programs. Traditionally, 
in this approach one relates complexity classes to restrictions on 
programming paradigms (functional programs, lambda calculi, rewriting 
systems), such as ramified recurrence, weak polymorphic types, linear 
logic and linear types and interpretative measures.

The workshop will be open to contributions on various aspects of ICC 
including (but not exclusively):

- types for controlling complexity
- logical systems for implicit computational complexity
- linear logic
- semantics of complexity-bounded computation
- rewriting and termination orderings
- interpretation-based methods for implicit complexity
- programming languages for complexity-bounded computation
- theoretical foundations of program complexity analysis
- application of implicit complexity to security

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of up to 5 pages, 
which must be written in English and be submitted as a single PDF file 
to the following page:


Submissions will be judged on originality, relevance, interest and 
clarity.  Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop. 
Abstracts may contain material already published elsewhere before the 
workshop.  Preference will be given to abstracts containing novel work 
(including work in progress).

The workshop will not have formal proceedings and is not intended to 
preclude later publication at another venue.

Submissions of abstracts by PC members are allowed.
