LaSh 2018 Workshop on Logic and Search,

A FLoC 2018 Workshop, July 18 and 19, 2018, Oxford UK

The LaSh Workshops on Logic and Search are devoted to the study, from
the point of view of logic, of declarative languages for defining or
representing search and optimization problems, problem-solving systems
that use these languages, and related issues regarding reductions,
search algorithms, problem transformations, and others. There will be
a special session on practical MSO Model Checking.

Topics of Interest include:
Descriptive Complexity: esp. over interesting classes of structures
Specification and Modelling Languages: Design, Analysis, Application
Reductions: e.g., theory of good reductions
Structural Properties of Instances: tractabible families
Reformulation and Specifiction-Level Reasoning
Declarative Dynamic Programming
Grounding: e.g., Efficient, Lazy and incremental grounding
Modularity and Compositionality in languages and systems
Ground Languages and Solvers SAT; SMT; ASP; ILP; etc.
Applications and System Descriptions

MSO Model Checking Session Confirmed Talks:
- MSO Model Checking with Fly Automata
Bruno Courcelle & Irene Durand
- Practical algorithms for MSO model-checking on tree-decomp. graphs
Peter Rossmanith
- Lazy Automata Techniques for WS1S.
(Tomas Vojnar, tentative)

Important Dates
Submission: April 23.
Notification: May 12.
Workshop: July 18, 19.

Those interested in presenting at LaSh should submit a paper or extended
abstract (pdf), on EasyChair (,
or email organizers at, no later than April 23.
