WADT 2014 : 22nd International Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques
Conference Series : Workshop on Recent Trends in Algebraic Development Techniques
Call For Papers
THIRD CALL FOR PAPERS - Extension to abstract submission deadline!
22nd International Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques
September 4-7, 2014, Sinaia, Romania
NEW! Christoph Benzmueller and Rustan Leino
will be the invited speakers of WADT 2014
AIMS AND SCOPE
The algebraic approach to system specification encompasses many aspects of the formal design of software systems. Originally born as formal method for reasoning about abstract data types, it now covers new specification frameworks and programming paradigms (such as object-oriented, aspect-oriented, agent-oriented, logic and higher-order functional programming) as well as a wide range of application areas (including information systems, concurrent, distributed and mobile systems).
The workshop will provide an opportunity to present recent and ongoing work, to meet colleagues, and to discuss new ideas and future trends.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:
- Foundations of algebraic specification
- Other approaches to formal specification, including process calculi and models of concurrent, distributed and mobile computing
- Specification languages, methods, and environments
- Semantics of conceptual modelling methods and techniques
- Model-driven development
- Graph transformations, term rewriting and proof systems
- Integration of formal specification techniques
- Formal testing and quality assurance, validation, and verification
WORKSHOP FORMAT AND LOCATION
The workshop will take place over four days, Thursday to Sunday, at Hotel International Sinaia. Presentations will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts.
Christoph Benzmueller (FU Berlin, Germany)
Rustan Leino (Microsoft Research, USA)
Submission deadline for abstracts: June 30, 2014
Notification of acceptance: July 7, 2014
Early registration: July 15, 2014
Final abstract due: July 25, 2014
Workshop in Sinaia: September 4-7, 2014
The scientific programme of the workshop will include presentations of recent results and ongoing research. The presentations will be selected by the Steering Committee on the basis of submitted abstracts according to originality, significance and general interest. The abstracts must be up to two pages long including references. If a longer version of the condtribution is available, it can be made accessible on the web and referenced in the abstract.
The abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system, at the URL
After the workshop, selected authors will be invited to submit full papers for the refereed proceedings, which will be published as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer).
The workshop takes place under the auspices of IFIP WG 1.3.
