Workshop on Advances in Separation Logics (ASL 2022), Haifa, Israel, July 31st 2022 


The past two decades have witnessed important progress in static 
analysis and verification of code with low-level pointer and heap 
manipulations, mainly due to the development of Separation Logic 
(SL). SL is a resource logic, a dialect of the logic of Bunched 
Implications (BI) designed to describe models of the heap memory and 
the mutations that occur in the heap as the result of low-level 
pointer updates. The success of SL in program analysis is due to the 
support for local reasoning, namely the ability of describing only the 
resource(s) being modified, instead of the entire state of the 
system. This enables the design of compositional analyses that 
synthesize specifications of the behavior of small parts of the 
program before combining such local specifications into global 
verification conditions. Another interesting line of work consists in 
finding alternatives to the underlying semantic domain of SL, namely 
heaps with aggregative composition, in order to address other fields 
in computing, such as self-adapting distributed networks, blockchain 
and population protocols, social networks or biological systems. 

We consider submissions on topics including: 

* decision procedures for SL and other resource logics, 
* computational complexity of decision problems such as satisfiability, entailment and abduction for SL and other resource logics, 
* axiomatisations and proof systems for automated or interactive theorem proving for SL and other resource logics, 
* verification conditions for real-life interprocedural and concurrent programs, using SL and other resource logics, 
* alternative semantics and computation models based on the notion of resource, 
* application of separation and resource logics to different fields, such as sociology and biology.
