Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
Second International Conference on
Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD'17)
3 -- 6 September 2017, Oxford, UK (co-located with ICFP 2017)
FSCD (http://fscdconference.org/) covers all aspects of formal
structures for computation and deduction from theoretical foundations
to applications. Building on two communities, RTA (Rewriting
Techniques and Applications) and TLCA (Typed Lambda Calculi and
Applications), FSCD embraces their core topics and broadens their
scope to closely related areas in logics, proof theory and new
emerging models of computation such as quantum computing or homotopy
All deadlines are midnight anywhere-on-earth (AoE) and are firm;
late submissions will not be considered.
Abstract Deadline: 7 April 2017
Submission Deadline: 14 April 2017
Rebuttal: 29--31 May 2017
Notification: 14 June 2017
Camera-Ready: 7 July 2017
Suggested, but not exclusive, list of topics for submission are:
1. Calculi: Lambda calculus * Concurrent calculi * Logics * Rewriting
systems * Proof theory * Type theory and logical frameworks
2. Methods in Computation and Deduction: Type systems * Induction and
coinduction * Matching, unification, completion, and orderings *
Strategies * Tree automata * Model checking * Proof search and
theorem proving * Constraint solving and decision procedures
3. Semantics: Operational semantics * Abstract machines * Game
Semantics * Domain theory and categorical models * Quantitative
4. Algorithmic Analysis and Transformations of Formal Systems: Type
Inference and type checking * Abstract Interpretation * Complexity
analysis and implicit computational complexity * Checking
termination, confluence, derivational complexity and related
properties * Symbolic computation
5. Tools and Applications: Programming and proof environments *
Verification tools * Libraries for proof assistants and interactive
theorem provers * Case studies in proof assistants and interactive
theorem provers * Certification
PUBLICATION The proceedings will be published as an electronic volume
in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) of
Schloss Dagstuhl. All LIPIcs proceedings are open access.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES Submissions can be made in two categories.
Regular research papers are limited to 15 pages and must present
original research which is unpublished and not submitted
elsewhere. System descriptions are limited to 10 pages and must
describe a working system which has not been published or submitted
elsewhere. Submissions must be formatted using the LIPIcs style files
and submitted via EasyChair. Complete instructions on submitting a
paper can be found on the conference web site.
SPECIAL ISSUES Full versions of several accepted papers, to be
selected by the program committee, will be invited for submission to a
special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science.
BEST PAPER AWARD BY JUNIOR RESEARCHERS The program committee will
consider declaring this award to a paper in which all authors are
junior researchers: a junior researcher is a person who is either a
student or whose PhD award date is less than three years from the
first day of the meeting.
