Interference and dependence are closely related concepts, the first
being the observable phenomenon connected to the second. Interference
essentially means that behaviour of some parts of a dynamic system may
influence the behaviour of other parts of the system. Dependence
specifies the relation between the semantics of sub-components of a
dynamic system.

Discovering, measuring and controlling interference is essential in
many aspects of modern computer science, in particular in security,
program analysis and verification, debugging, model checking, program
manipulation, program slicing, reverse engineering, data mining,
distributed databases and recently in systems biology, where the
problem of controlling interference between pathways in complex
molecular networks is recognized as a major challenge. Refining
dependence analysis is the main task to achieve this goal. This
requires new theories, models and semantics for interference and
dependence, algorithms and tools for analysis and reasoning about
interference and dependence.

The aim of this workshop is to gather together the community of people
that study dependence and interference from the different points of
view in order to generate new possible research directions. PLID is
devoted to bridging all these communities towards a common goal,
providing the appropriate environment for reasoning about the state of
the art in interference and dependence.
