Call For Papers

======================================================================
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

WADT 2018
24th International Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques
http://wadt18.cs.rhul.ac.uk
July 2–5, 2018, Royal Holloway University of London, Egham, UK
======================================================================

AIMS AND SCOPE

The algebraic approach to system specification encompasses many aspects of the formal design of software systems. Originally born as a 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 cyber-physical systems
– 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
– Algebraic approaches to cognitive sciences, including computational creativity

WORKSHOP FORMAT AND LOCATION

The workshop will take place over four days, Monday to Thursday, at Royal Holloway University of London in Egham, UK (https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk).
Presentations will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts.

INVITED SPEAKERS

Artur d'Avila Garcez (City, University of London, UK)
Rolf Hennicker (LMU Munich, Germany)

IMPORTANT DATES

Submission deadline for abstracts: April 27th, 2018
Notification of acceptance: May 18th, 2018
Early registration: June 1st, 2018
Final abstract due: June 1st, 2018
Workshop: July 2–5, 2018

SUBMISSIONS

The scientific programme of the workshop will include presentations of recent results or ongoing research as well as invited talks. The presentations will be selected by the Steering Committee on the basis of submitted abstracts according to originality, significance and general interest. Abstracts must not exceed two pages including references; if a longer version of the contribution is available, it can be made accessible on the web and referenced in the abstract.

Abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wadt18.

PROCEEDINGS

After the workshop, authors will be invited to submit full papers for the refereed proceedings. All submissions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee. Selection will be based on originality, soundness, and significance of the presented ideas and results. The proceedings will be published as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer).

The deadline for submissions will be September 3, 2018, with notifications by October 29. Camera-ready versions will be required by November 11.

SPONSORSHIP

The workshop takes place under the auspices of IFIP WG 1.3.
