**LSFA'07**
*Second Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with Applications*
August 28th, 2007
Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil

(Satellite Event to SBMF'07, the Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods)


*Scope*

Logical and semantic frameworks are formal languages used to represent
logics, languages and systems. These frameworks provide foundations
for formal specification of systems and programming languages,
supporting tool development and reasoning.

The objective of this one-day workshop is to put together
theoreticians and practitioners to promote new techniques and results,
from the theoretical side, and feedback on the implementation and use
of such techniques and results, from the practical side.

Topics of interest to this forum include, but are not limited to:

   * Logical frameworks
         o Proof theory
         o Type theory
         o Automated deduction
   * Semantic frameworks
         o Specification languages and meta-languages
         o Formal semantics of languages and systems
         o Computational and logical properties of semantic frameworks
   * Implementation of logical and/or semantic frameworks
   * Applications of logical and/or semantic frameworks

LSFA´07 also aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing work in
progress, and therefore to provide feedback to authors on their
preliminary research. Submissions to the workshop will in the form of
full papers. The proceedings are produced only after the meeting, so
that authors can incorporate this feedback in the published papers.

*Dates and Submission*

Paper submission deadline: 	May 19th
Author notification:	June 30th
Camera ready:	July 31st

Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form
full papers with at most 16 pages. They must be unpublished and not

papers, the authors will be invited to submit full versions of their
works that will be also reviewed to high standards. Currently a
special issue of the first edition of the workshop LSFA'06 is being
processed and will appear in the new Elsevier Journal on Algorithms in
Applied Logic.

At least one of the authors should register at the conference. The
