LFMTP 2012

7th International Workshop on

Logical Frameworks and Meta-languages:

Theory and Practice

Copenhagen, Denmark - September 9, 2012

Affiliated with ICFP 2012, September 9-15

For registration and other such information, see the ICFP site.

Logical frameworks and meta-languages form a common substrate for representing, implementing, and reasoning about a wide variety of deductive systems of interest in logic and computer science. Their design and implementation on the one hand and their use in reasoning tasks ranging from the correctness of software to the properties of formal computational systems on the other hand have been the focus of considerable research over the last two decades. This workshop will bring together designers, implementors, and practitioners to discuss various aspects impinging on the structure and utility of logical frameworks, including the treatment of variable binding, inductive and co-inductive reasoning techniques and the expressivity and lucidity of the reasoning process.

LFMTP 2012 will provide researchers a forum to present state-of-the-art techniques and discuss progress in areas such as the following:

  • Encoding and reasoning about the meta-theory of programming languages and related formally specified systems.
  • Theoretical and practical issues concerning the treatment of variable binding, especially the representation of, and reasoning about, datatypes defined from binding signatures.
  • Logical treatments of inductive and co-inductive definitions and associated reasoning techniques.
  • Case studies of meta-programming, and the mechanization of the (meta)theory of descriptions of programming languages and other calculi, especially ones focusing on logic translations and on experiences with encoding programming languages theory.

Call for papers

The workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
