DESCRIPTION: 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, implementers, 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.

TOPICS: LFMTP 2014 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.
- New theory contributions: canonical and substructural frameworks,
  contextual frameworks, proof-theoretic foundations supporting binders,
  functional programming over logical frameworks, homotopy type theory.
- Applications of logical frameworks, e.g., in proof-carrying
  architectures such as proof-carrying authorization.
- Techniques for programming with binders in functional programming
  languages such as Haskell, OCaml, or Agda and logic programming
  languages such as lambda Prolog or Alpha-Prolog.
  with encoding programming languages theory will be particularly
  welcome.

SUBMISSIONS: In addition to regular papers, we also solicit "work in
progress" reports, in a broad sense. Those do not need to report
original or fully polished research results, but should be interesting
for the community at large.

Submitted papers should be in PDF, formatted using the ACM SIGPLAN
style guidelines
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). The
length is restricted to 8 pages, except for "work in progress" papers,
which are restricted to 4 pages.  Submission is via EasyChair
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lfmtp2014).

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their paper at the
workshop.

PROCEEDINGS: Accepted regular papers will be included in the
proceedings, which will be published in the ACM International
Conference Proceedings Series, available in the ACM Digital
Library. Authors are encouraged to publish auxiliary material with
their paper (technical appendixes, source code, scripts, test data,
etc.).
