Dear all,

This is the second call for contributions for FICS 2023, registration is now open on the CSL 2023 webpage: https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://csl2023.mimuw.edu.pl/?page_id=696__;!!IBzWLUs!V1I-LnR5uU6AkOnKEA5r1nsAHgB8XOD2vxOAPL29aILqJjsT3Cu4hydlf3gdZI2L6HdBIlYcfSOjEOQAkhzBskhY0L16zQEu68OfrQ$ 

The 11th International Workshop on Fixed Points in Computer Science will take place in Warsaw on 17 February 2023 as a satellite of the International Conference CSL 2023 (Computer Science Logic).

FICS webpage: https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://perso.ens-lyon.fr/denis.kuperberg/FICS2023.htm__;!!IBzWLUs!V1I-LnR5uU6AkOnKEA5r1nsAHgB8XOD2vxOAPL29aILqJjsT3Cu4hydlf3gdZI2L6HdBIlYcfSOjEOQAkhzBskhY0L16zQHA3GOUGw$ 

The goal of the workshop is to bring together people from different fields such as algebra/coalgebra, verification, logic, around the thematic of fixed points.
This workshop will be without proceedings. In particular you can present work that is already published elsewhere, or in progress.
Depending on the nature of contributions, a pre-approved special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae might be published with selected contributions.

Fixed points play a fundamental role in several areas of computer science. They are used to justify (co)recursive definitions and associated reasoning techniques. The construction and properties of fixed points have been investigated in many different settings such as: design and implementation of programming languages, logic, verification, databases. Topics include, but are not restricted to:
-fixed points in algebra and coalgebra
-fixed points in formal languages and automata
-fixed points in game theory
-fixed points in programming language semantics
-fixed points in the mu-calculus and modal logics
-fixed points in process algebras and process calculi
-fixed points in functional programming and type theory
-fixed points in relation to dataflow and circuits
-fixed points in logic programming and theorem proving
-fixed points in finite model theory, descriptive complexity theory, and databases
-fixed points in category theory for logic in computer science

Invited Speakers
Graham Leigh: TBA
Dana Scott: Seventy Years Using Fixed Points (video lecture)
