29 June 2020, Logical Frameworks and Meta-Languages: Theory and Practice (LFMTP 2020), Online
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, implementation and their use in reasoning tasks, ranging from the correctness of software to the properties of formal systems, 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 expressiveness and lucidity of the reasoning process.
LFMTP 2020 is affiliated with FSCD 2020 and IJCAR 2020. To celebrate the 60th birthday of Frank Pfenning and his great many contributions to the topics of LFMTP, one session will be devoted to talks by collaborators and friends of Frank.
We solicit submissions of long abstracts describing original research results or descriptions of work in progress. The topics of the submissions should be of interest to the LFMTP community at large. Submitted abstracts should be in PDF, formatted using the EPTCS LaTeX style. The length is restricted to 2 pages. All submissions will undergo a light peer-review process and the authors of those accepted will be invited to present their papers at the workshop.
In addition to regular papers, we accept the submission of "work in progress" reports, in a broad sense. Those do not need to report fully polished research results, but should be of interest for the community at large.
