Logical Frameworks and Meta-Languages: Theory and Practice
Thursday, 23 June 2016
Affiliated with FSCD
Porto, Portugal

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 and their use in reasoning tasks ranging from the correctness
of software to the properties of formal computational systems 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 expressiveness and lucidity of the reasoning

LFMTP 2016 will provide researchers a forum to present state-of-the-art
techniques and discuss progress in areas such as the following:

* 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.

* New theory contributions: canonical and substructural frameworks,
  contextual frameworks, proof-theoretic foundations supporting binders,
  functional programming over logical frameworks, homotopy type theory.

* Applications of logical frameworks, e.g., in proof-carrying
  architectures such as proof-carrying authorization.

* Techniques for programming with binders in functional programming
  languages such as Haskell, OCaml, or Agda and logic programming languages
  such as lambda Prolog or Alpha-Prolog.
== Important Dates ==

Friday, April 8th: Abstract deadline
Wednesday, April 13th: Submission deadline
Friday, May 13th: Notification to authors
Friday, May 27th: Final version due
Thursday, June 23rd: Workshop date

== Submission ==

In addition to regular papers, we also solicit "work in progress"
reports, in a broad sense.  Those do not need to report fully polished
research results, but should be interesting for the community at large.

Submitted papers should be in PDF, formatted using the ACM sigplanconf
style files. The length is restricted to 10 pages for regular papers and
7 pages for "Work in Progress" papers.

Accepted regular papers will be included in the proceedings, which will be
published in ACM digital library in its International Proceedings series.
