[isabelle] LSFA'08 - 2nd call for papers



 LSFA'08
 Third Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with Applications

 August 26th, 2008
 Salvador, Bahia, Brazil


 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'08 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.

 SUBMISSION INFORMATION


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 They must be unpublished and not
