CALL FOR PAPERS: Logic and Computational Complexity, 6 Sep 2013, Torino, ITALY

LCC 2013

The Fourteenth International Workshop on Logic and Computational Complexity
will be held in Torino on September 6, 2013, as an affiliated meeting
of CSL'13 (

LCC meetings are aimed at the foundational interconnections between logic and 
computational complexity, as present, for example,  in implicit computational 
complexity (descriptive and type-theoretic methods); deductive formalisms as 
they relate to complexity (e.g. ramification, weak comprehension, bounded 
arithmetic, linear logic and resource logics); complexity aspects of finite 
model theory and databases; complexity-mindful program derivation and 
verification; computational complexity at higher type; and proof complexity.

The LCC'13 program will consist of invited lectures as well as selected 
contributed papers. We welcome informal presentations about work in progress, 
survey papers, as well as work submitted or published elsewhere, provided all 
pertinent information is disclosed at submission time.  Submissions in the form 
of an extended abstract of approx. 5 pages are welcome. If full papers are 
submitted, they should not exceed 15 pages.  Proposed papers should be sent to 
the program chairs.


Paper submission deadline:       20 June
Authors' notification:            8 July
LCC'13 workshop:                  6 September
