CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue of JLC on "Logics for Resources, Processes and Programs"

2nd Call for Papers


Special Issue on Logics for Resources, Processes, and Programs

Editors: Didier Galmiche (Universit de Lorraine --- LORIA) and
              David Pym (UCL)

Submission deadline (extended): 31 March, 2014



We invite submissions to a Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and
Computation (JLC) devoted to the topic `Logics for Resources,
Processes, and Programs'. This call follows on from the LRPP 2013
workshop held in association with Tableaux 2013. This Call is open
to all interested authors, irrespective of attendance at LRPP 2013.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

- Logics for resources: semantics, model theory, and proof theory;
- Process calculi, concurrency, and resource-distribution;
- Reasoning about programs, systems, and behaviours (e.g., Separation
   Logic and associated ideas);
- Extensions of logics: for example, with modalities;
- Languages of assertions, and languages based on resource logics
   (e.g., query languages, pointers, trees, and graphs);
- Theorem proving and model checking in resource logics:
   decision procedures, strategies, complexity results;
- Applications to access control models in computer and system

We aim to identify and present a timely record of the leading contributions
to these logically rich and highly applicable topics in a rigorous logic journal.


Papers should be sent by email to either of the editors (Galmiche
or Pym, at their addresses as given below). Please use the
Subject line: JLC LRPP submission.

Papers should be prepared using LaTeX and, in the first instance,
submitted as pdf.

Submissions should present original work of the highest quality, not
previously published in, or submitted to, another journal. Each
submission will be considered by at least two reviewers and assessed
against the usual high standards of the JLC.

Please see for guidance to authors
concerning submissions to the JLC.
