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

****************** CALL FOR PARTICIPATION  ******************

Early registration deadline: May 20, 2022

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 ** 
	- Radu Mardare University of Strathclyde, UK
	- José Meseguer University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US
	- José Nuno Oliveira Universidade do Minho, PT
	- Peter Selinger Dalhousie University, CA

** Workshop format and location ** 

WADT'22 is planned to be realised in a family-owned guesthouse with panoramic views to lagoon Pateira de Fermentelos, 20 minutes from the centre of Aveiro. 
The registration fees, that includes the event registration, accommodations and meals, will be around EUR 500 for standard and EUR 300 for student participants.  Instructions will be available soon in https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://wadt2022.web.ua.pt__;!!IBzWLUs!UBY3BGVwMke--u-cDML7xriZwJg9IVaItXU7x29zbjYQAvumCRbpRtMHcz5GdE60DXyiSliNg5shzQs1WPG1OOEKijW9$ .

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.
