CALL FOR PAPERS
Interest in the fundamental problem of the combination of formal
notations and theories of programming has grown consistently in recent
years. The theories define, in various different ways, many common
notions, such as abstraction, refinement, choice, termination,
feasibility,
concurrency and communication. Despite these differences, such theories
may be unified in a way which greatly facilitates their study and
comparison. Moreover, such a unification offers a means of combining
different languages describing various facets and artifacts of software
development in a seamless, logically consistent way. Hoare and He's
Unifying Theories of Programming (UTP) is widely acknowledged one
of the most significant such unification approaches to have emerged in
the last 15 years.

Based on their pioneering work, the aims of the UTP Symposium
series are to continue reaffirming the significance of the ongoing UTP
project and to stimulate efforts to advance it by providing a focus for
the
sharing of results by those already actively contributing, and to raise
awareness of the benefits of such unifying theoretical frameworks among
the wider computer science and software engineering communities.

To this end the Symposium welcomes contributions on all the themes 
that can be related to the Unifying Theories of Programming.


SUBMISSIONS
Papers may be up to 20 pages in length and should be prepared using
LaTeX in Springer LNCS paper format. Submissions should be made
