submissions will not be considered.
Titles and Short Abstracts: 8 February 2019

Final version for proceedings: 22 April 2019

FSCD covers all aspects of formal structures for computation and
deduction from theoretical foundations to applications. Building on
two communities, RTA (Rewriting Techniques and Applications) and TLCA
(Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications), FSCD embraces their core
topics and broadens their scope to closely related areas in logics,
models of computation (e.g. quantum computing, probabilistic
computing, homotopy type theory), semantics and verification in new
challenging areas (e.g. blockchain protocols or deep learning

Suggested, but not exclusive, list of topics for submission are:
1. Calculi:
Rewriting systems, Lambda calculus, Concurrent calculi, Logics,
Type theory, Homotopy type theory, Logical frameworks, Quantum
2. Methods in Computation and Deduction:
Type systems; Induction and coinduction; Matching, unification,
completion and orderings; Strategies; Tree automata; Model
checking; Proof search and theorem proving; Constraint solving and
decision procedures
3. Semantics:
Operational semantics; Abstract machines; Game Semantics; Domain
theory; Categorical models; Quantitative models
4. Algorithmic Analysis and Transformations of Formal Systems:
Type inference and type checking; Abstract interpretation;
Complexity analysis and implicit computational complexity; Checking
termination, confluence, derivational complexity and related
properties; Symbolic computation
5. Tools and Applications:
Programming and proof environments; Verification tools; Proof
assistants and interactive theorem provers; Applications in
industry (e.g. design and verification of critical systems);
Applications in other sciences (e.g. biology)
6. Semantics and verification in new challenging areas:
Certification; Security; Blockchain protocols; Data bases; Deep
learning and machine learning algorithms; Planning

The proceedings will be published as an electronic volume in the
Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) of Schloss
Dagstuhl. All LIPIcs proceedings are open access.

Submissions can be made in two categories. Regular research papers
are limited to 15 pages (including references, with the possibility to
add an annex for technical details, e.g.\ proofs) and must present
original research which is unpublished and not submitted
elsewhere. System descriptions are limited to 15 pages (including
references) and must present new software tools in which FSCD topics
play an important role, or significantly new versions of such
tools. Submissions must be formatted using the LIPIcs style files and
submitted via EasyChair. Complete instructions on submitting a paper
can be found on the conference web site:

The program committee will consider declaring this award to a paper in
which at least one author is a junior researcher, i.e. either a
student or whose PhD award date is less than three years from the
first day of the meeting. Other authors should declare to the PC Chair
that at least 50% of contribution is made by the junior

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
version for a special issue of Logical Methods in Computer Science.
