FSCD 2017, co-located with ICFP 2017, will be the second edition of
the International Conference on Formal Structures for Computation and
Deduction. The FSCD conference was created by the communities behind
two major conferences, RTA (Rewriting Techniques and Applications) and
TLCA (Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications). The first event took
place in Porto, Portugal in June 2016 and was extremely successful,
attracting 186 participants and 11 workshops.

We invite proposals for workshops, tutorials or other satellite
events, on any topic to related formal structures in computation and
deduction, from theoretical foundations to tools and applications. A
full list of suggested topics is given here:

The organizers of satellite events are expected to create and maintain
a website for the event; handle paper selection, reviewing and
acceptance; draw up a programme of talks; advertise their event though
specialist mailing lists; prepare the informal pre-proceedings (if

on the main conference website; integration of the event's programme
into the overall timetable; registration of participants; distribution
of a USB memory stick containing the informal pre-proceedings;
arrangement of an appropriate meeting room; and provision of lunch and
coffee breaks for participants. We will waive the registration fees
