ANNOUNCEMENT: Proof, Computation and Complexity, 6-7 June 2011, BELGIUM

PCC 2011, Ghent University, Ghent (Belgium)

Aim and scope
The aim of PCC is to stimulate research in proof theory, computation, and complexity, focusing on 
issues which combine logical and computational aspects. Topics may include applications of formal 
inference systems in computer science, as well as new developments in proof theory motivated by 
computer science demands. Specific areas of interest are (non-exhaustively listed) foundations for 
specification and programming languages, logical methods in specification and program development 
including program extraction from proofs, type theory, new developments in structural proof theory,
and implicit computational complexity.

PCC is intended to be a lively forum for presenting and discussing recent work. Participants who 
want to contribute a talk are asked to submit an abstract (by sending an e-mail to

The workshop is held in "Priorzaal, Het Pand", Onderbergen 1, 9000 Gent.
