Call For Papers

LOPSTR 2018: First Call for Papers

28th International Symposium on
Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation

Frankfurt, Germany, September 4-6, 2018
(co-located with PPDP 2018 and WFLP 2018)

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 28th International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and
Transformation (LOPSTR 2018) will be held at the Goethe-University
Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Previous symposia were held in Siena,
Canterbury, Madrid, Leuven, Odense, Hagenberg, Coimbra, Valencia,
Lyngby, Venice, London, Verona, Uppsala, Madrid, Paphos, London,
Venice, Manchester, Leuven, Stockholm, Arnhem, Pisa, Louvain-la-Neuve,
Manchester, Edinburgh, and Namur. LOPSTR 2018 will be co-located
with PPDP 2018 (International Symposium on Principles and Practice
of Declarative Programming) and WFLP 2018 (International Workshop on
Functional and Logic 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appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings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 chairs in case of questions).

Important Dates

Abstract submission: March 25, 2018
Paper/Extended abstract submission: April 1, 2018
Notification: June 1, 2018
Camera-ready (for electronic pre-proceedings): June 17, 2018
Symposium: September 4-6, 2018

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 (and, if
possible, line 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 2018.

Best Paper Award and Prize

A best paper award will be granted, which will include a 500 EUR prize
provided by Springer. This award will be given to the best paper
submitted to the conference, based on the relevance, originality, and
technical quality. The program committee may split the award among two
or more papers, also considering authorship (e.g., student paper).


The formal post-conference proceedings will be published by Springer
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. 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
