Event When Where Deadline
FICS 2009 6th Workshop on Fixed Points in Computer Science
Sep 12, 2009 - Sep 13, 2009 Coimbra, Portugal Jun 30, 2009

Present CFP : 2009

Fixed points play a fundamental role in several areas of computer science and logic by justifying induction and recursive definitions. The construction and properties of fixed points have been investigated in many different frameworks such as: design and implementation of programming languages, program logics, databases. The aim of the workshop is to provide a forum for researchers to present their results to those members of the computer science and logic communities who study or apply the theory of fixed points. Previous workshops where held in Brno (1998, MFCS/CSL workshop), Paris (2000, LC workshop), Florence (2001, PLI workshop), Copenhagen (2002, LICS (FLoC) workshop), Warsaw (2003, ETAPS workshop) (check the FICS history).

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

* categorical, metric and ordered fixed point models
* fixed points in algebra and coalgebra
* fixed points in languages and automata
* fixed points in programming language semantics
* the mu-calculus and fixed points in modal logic
* fixed points in process algebras and process calculi
* fixed points in the lambda-calculus, functional programming and type theory
* fixed points in relation to dataflow and circuits
* fixed points in logic programming and theorem proving
* finite model theory, descriptive complexity theory, fixed points in databases

Contributed talks

Selection of contributed talks is based on extended abstracts/short papers of 3..6 pp formatted with easychair.cls. Submission is via EasyChair by 30 June 2009. The authors will be notified of acceptance/rejection by 21 July 2009.

Camera-ready versions of the accepted contributions, due by 11 August 2009, will be published for distribution at the workshop as a technical report.
Journal publication

If the number and quality of submissions and accepted talks warrant this, EDP Sciences will publish a special issue of Theoretical Informatics and Applications. The special issues of the previous editions of FICS appeared in the same journal.
