(LICS workshop)

Call for Contributions


Workshop dates: 25 June 2023 (Boston and online)


There is a remarkable divide in the field of logic in Computer
Science between two distinct strands: one focuses on semantics
and compositionality (“Structure”), the other on expressiveness
and complexity (“Power”). These two traditions are studied by
almost disjoint research communities using almost disjoint
technical languages and methods.

We believe that bringing these communities and research fields
together is an important objective in Computer Science, which may
hold the key to fundamental advances in the field. The aim of
this workshop is to attract investigators at the boundary of the
two strands, and those on either side of the divide interested in
establishing new connections.

Previous workshops on this theme were held as affiliated
workshops of LiCS 2021 and ICALP 2022.

This is a LiCS 2023 affiliated workshop. It will be a hybrid
event, however on-site participation is highly encouraged.
