CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: Proof, Computation and Complexity, 17-18 Aug 2012, Copenhagen, DENMARK

PCC 2012 - co-located with the 8th Scandinavian Logic Symposium

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 kindly invited to submit an abstract to Reinhard 
Kahle ( by 15 July 2012.

The workshop is held at the Northern Campus of the University of Copenhagen, 
Universitetsparken 1, DK-2100 Copenhagen, Denmark.
