Call For Papers


12th Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with Applications
23-24 September 2017, Brasília, Brazil
Satellite event of TABLEAUX, FroCoS, and ITP 2017

Logical and semantic frameworks are formal languages used to represent logics, languages and systems. These frameworks provide foundations for the formal specification of systems and programming languages, supporting tool development and reasoning.

LSFA 2017 aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing work in progress, and therefore to provide feedback to authors on their preliminary research. The proceedings are produced after the meeting, so that authors can incorporate this feedback in the published papers.

LSFA 2017 will be a satellite event of TABLEAUX, FroCoS, and ITP -- to be held in Brasília, Brazil, between 25 and 29 September 2017.
Previous editions took place in Porto (2016), Natal (2015), Brasília (2014), Sao Paulo (2013), Rio de Janeiro (2012), Belo Horizonte (2011), Natal (2010), Brasília (2009), Salvador (2008), Ouro Preto (2007), and Natal (2006).


Topics of interest to this forum include, but are not limited to:

* Automated deduction
* Applications of logical and/or semantic frameworks
* Computational and logical properties of semantic frameworks
* Formal semantics of languages and systems
* Implementation of logical and/or semantic frameworks
* Lambda and combinatory calculi
* Logical aspects of computational complexity
* Logical frameworks
* Process calculi
* Proof theory
* Semantic frameworks
* Specification languages and meta-languages
* Type theory


Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form of full papers with a maximum of 16 pages including references or short papers with a maximum of 6 pages including references. Additional technical material can be provided in a clearly marked appendix which will be read by reviewers at their discretion. Contributions must also be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. The papers should be prepared in LaTeX using ENTCS style ( The submission should be in the form of a PDF file uploaded to Easychair:

The workshop pre-proceedings, containing the reviewed extended abstracts, will be handed-out at workshop registration. After the workshop the authors of both full and short papers will be invited to submit full versions of their works for the post-proceedings to be published in ENTCS. At least one of the authors should register for the conference. Presentations should be in English.

* Submission: 21 June 2017
* Notification: 21 July 2017
* Final pre-proceedings version due: 11 August 2017
* LSFA 2017 23-24 September 2017

According to the quality of proceedings, authors will/would/might be invited to submit an improved version of their paper for a special issue. Previous LSFA special issues have been published in journals such as J. IGPL and TCS (see
