Call For Papers

LSFA 2018
13th Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with Applications
26-28 September 2018, Fortaleza, Brazil

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.

Previous editions took place in Brasília (2017, collocated with
Tableaux+FroCoS+ITP), Porto (2016), Natal (2015), Brasília (2014), São
Paulo (2013), Rio de Janeiro (2012), Belo Horizonte (2011), Natal
(2010), Brasília (2009), Salvador (2008), Ouro Preto (2007), and Natal
(2006). See for more information.


Topics of interest 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. Beyond
full regular papers, we encourage submissions such as proof pearls,
rough diamonds, original surveys, or overviews of research projects,
where the focus is more on elegance and dissemination than on novelty.
Papers belonging to this second category are expected to be short,
that is, of a maximum of 6 pages including references, unless they
also contain some novel results.

For both paper categories, 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 Contributions must also be unpublished and not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.

Papers should be prepared in LaTeX using the generic ENTCS package
( 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.

For the reviewing process, the traditional system will be enriched
with the possibility for the reviewers to interact with the authors
via an anonymous forum associated to each paper.


* Submission: June 10
* Notification: July 25
* Camera ready version: August 12
* LSFA 2018: September 26-28

After the publication of the ENTCS proceedings, the authors of
selected papers will be invited to submit revised papers for a special
issue. Previous LSFA special issues have been published in journals
such as J. IGPL and TCS (see
