Call For Papers


25th International Symposium on
Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation

Special Issue of Formal Aspects of Computing

University of Siena, Siena, IT, July 13-15, 2015
(co-located with PPDP 2015)

Abstract submission: April 6, 2015
Paper/Extended abstract submission: April 13, 2015


The aim of the LOPSTR series is to stimulate and promote international
research and collaboration on logic-based program development. LOPSTR
is open to contributions in logic-based program development in any
language paradigm. LOPSTR has a reputation for being a lively,
friendly forum for presenting and discussing work in progress. Formal
proceedings are produced only after the symposium so that authors can
incorporate this feedback in the published papers.

The 25th International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and
Transformation (LOPSTR 2015) will be held at the University of Siena,
Siena, Italy; previous symposia were held in Canterbury, Madrid,
Leuven, Odense, Hagenberg, Coimbra, Valencia, Lyngby, Venice, London,
Verona, Uppsala, Madrid, Paphos, London, Venice, Manchester, Leuven,
Stockholm, Arnhem, Pisa, Louvain-la-Neuve, and Manchester.
LOPSTR 2015 will be co-located with PPDP 2015 (International Symposium
on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming).

Topics of interest cover all aspects of logic-based program
development, all stages of the software life cycle, and issues of both
programming-in-the-small and programming-in-the-large. Both full
papers and extended abstracts describing applications in these areas
are especially welcome. Contributions are welcome on all aspects of
logic-based program development, including, but not limited to:

* synthesis
* transformation
* specialization
* composition
* optimization
* inversion
* specification
* analysis and verification
* testing and certification
* program and model manipulation
* transformational techniques in SE
* applications and tools

Survey papers that present some aspects of the above topics from a new
perspective, and application papers that describe experience with
industrial applications are also welcome.

Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in
English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal,
conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Work that already
appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings
may be submitted (please contact the PC chair in case of questions).

Important Dates

Abstract submission: April 6, 2015
Paper/Extended abstract submission: April 13, 2015
Notification: May 25, 2015
Camera-ready (for electronic pre-proceedings): June 15, 2015
Symposium: July 13-15, 2015

Submission Guidelines

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in
English) in PDF, formatted in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science
style. Each submission must include on its first page the paper
title; authors and their affiliations; contact author's email;
abstract; and three to four keywords which will be used to assist
the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Page numbers
should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing
their report. Submissions cannot exceed 15 pages including references
but excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication.
Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers
should be intelligible without them.
Papers should be submitted via the Easychair submission website for
LOPSTR 2015, which can be accessed through the website of LOPSTR 2015.


The formal post-conference proceedings will be published by Springer
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (to be confirmed).
Full papers can be directly accepted for publication in the formal
proceedings, or accepted only for presentation at the symposium and
inclusion in informal proceedings. After the symposium, all authors
of extended abstracts and full papers accepted only for presentation
will be invited to revise and/or extend their submissions in the light
of the feedback solicited at the symposium. Then, after another round
of reviewing, these revised papers may also be published in the formal

Special journal issue

After the symposium, a selection of the best papers will be invited to
a special issue of the 'Formal Aspects of Computing' journal. The
submissions to the special issue must be substantial extensions of the
proceedings versions and will undergo the usual journal reviewing
