WADT'22 - 26th International Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques 2022

** First call for papers **

Aveiro, 28-30 June, 2022


** Aims and Scope **
The algebraic approach to system specification encompasses many aspects of the formal design of software systems. Originally born as a formal method for reasoning about abstract data types, it now covers new specification frameworks and programming paradigms (such as object-oriented, aspect oriented, agent-oriented, logic and higher-order functional programming) as well as a wide range of application areas (including information systems, concurrent, distributed and mobile systems). The workshop will provide an opportunity to present recent and ongoing work, to meet colleagues, and to discuss new ideas and future trends. In 2020 WADT features additionally two special thematic tracks: one in *Algebra for timed and hybrid systems* and another in *Algebraic approaches to quantum computation*.

** Main track **
Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest for the main track are:
- Foundations of algebraic specification
- Other approaches to formal specification, including process calculi and models of concurrent and distributed systems
- Specification languages, methods, and environments
- Semantics of conceptual modelling methods and techniques
- Integration of formal specification techniques
- Formal testing and quality assurance, validation, and verification

** Algebra for timed and hybrid systems **
Track Chair: Renato Neves (UM, PT)

The track 'Algebra for timed and hybrid systems' seeks algebraic contributions towards a better understanding of timed and hybrid systems, including their design and verification. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:
- (co)algebraic syntax and semantics,
- observational notions of equivalence,
- equational reasoning and variants thereof,
- distributed and/or concurrent computing;
- modal and temporal logic,
- (co)algebraic verification tools,
- experience reports on the use of (co)algebraic tools.

** Algebraic approaches to quantum computation  **
Track Chair: Rui Soares Barbosa (INL, PT)

This track seeks contributions on algebraic methods in the context of quantum computing, broadly understood, ranging from foundations to applications and tools. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:
- foundational structures for quantum computing
- quantum calculi and logics
- quantum programming languages
- algebraic and categorical semantics for quantum computing
- algebraic approaches to verification of quantum programs
- rewriting and automated reasoning with applications to quantum compilation and optimisation
- tool support
- application of quantum algebra to quantum computing and beyond

** Invited Speakers (to be completed)**
- José Meseguer University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US
- Peter Selinger Dalhousie University, Canada

** Workshop format and location **

WADT'22 is planned to be realized in a family-owned guesthouse with panoramic views to lagoon Pateira de Fermentelos, 20 minutes from the centre of Aveiro. Information about accommodation will be available in https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://wadt2022.web.ua.pt__;!!IBzWLUs!FsgMAFhrEHGH6Lzk74FDiTeFXtq1SZS9L-vsblaCZO1q7E-94oJQ9O_7ankWhFL-LD73WIDE2_G1Bg$ .

Being planned as a physical, in-person event, due the COVID19 current situation, we will provide certain support for remote presence, both for speakers and for other participants who are unable or unwilling to come, depending on the pandemic situation.

** Submissions and Publications **

Presentations will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts. The abstracts must be up to two pages long including references. If a longer version of the contribution is available, it can be made accessible on the web and referenced in the abstract. The abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair link https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wadt2022__;!!IBzWLUs!FsgMAFhrEHGH6Lzk74FDiTeFXtq1SZS9L-vsblaCZO1q7E-94oJQ9O_7ankWhFL-LD73WIB5n9oqMQ$ .

WADT 2022 is organised by IFIP WG 1.03. As an IFIP event, post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series (requested). The deadline for the submission of full papers to be considered in this volume, to be announced  during the workshop, are expected to the end of September 2022.
