CALL FOR PAPERS: Fixed Points in Computer Science, 24 March 2012, ESTONIA

-FICS 2012 Workshop, Tallinn, Estonia -Satellite workshop to ETAPS 2012

Important dates:

Abstract submission:          4 Dec 2011
Paper submission:            11 Dec 2011
Notification:                21 Jan 2012
Final version:                5 Feb 2012


Fixed points play a fundamental role in several areas of computer science and logic by justifying 
induction and recursive definitions. The construction and properties of fixed points have been 
investigated in many different frameworks such as: design and implementation of programming 
languages, program logics, databases. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for 
researchers to present their results to those members of the computer science and logic 
communities who study or apply the theory of fixed points. Previous workshops were held in Brno 
(1998, MFCS/CSL workshop), Paris (2000, LC workshop), Florence (2001, PLI workshop), Copenhagen 
(2002, LICS (FLoC) workshop), Warsaw (2003, ETAPS workshop), Coimbra (2009, CSL workshop) and Brno
(2010, MFCS/CSL workshop).

Topics include, but are not restricted to:

     * categorical, metric and ordered fixed point models
     * fixed points in algebra and coalgebra
     * fixed points in languages and automata
     * fixed points in programming language semantics
     * the mu-calculus and fixed points in modal logic
     * fixed points in process algebras and process calculi
     * fixed points in the lambda-calculus, functional programming and type theory
     * fixed points in relation to dataflow and circuits
     * fixed points in logic programming and theorem proving
     * finite model theory, descriptive complexity theory, fixed points in databases

Invited speakers: TBA


Selection of contributed talks is based on extended abstracts/short papers of 6 pages formatted 
with easychair.cls. Submission is via EasyChair in two stages: titles and abstracts by 4 December, 
and extended abstracts/short papers by 11 December. The authors will be notified of acceptance/
rejection by 21 January 2012. We will distribute the short papers presented at the meeting via the
open source repository EPTCS.

Journal publication:

If the number and quality of submissions and accepted talks warrant this, a special issue of an 
internationally recognized journal devoted to the event will be published.
