This is a workshop on Gentzen-style proof systems, their generalizations,
and extensions. Since the introduction of the sequent calculus and natural
deduction by Gerhard Gentzen in the 1930s, a wide spectrum of formalisms
have been used to construct proof systems for logics resisting a simpler
description, including hypersequents, deep inference systems, display
calculi, labelled deductive systems, tableaux, and proof nets, to name just
a few. The aim of this workshop is to explore and compare the motivations
for and relative merits of these different approaches. Potential topics for
talks include:

* Cut-elimination and its applications, e.g., decidability, complexity
results, interpolation, amalgamation, completeness proofs, computational
interpretations, etc.

* Scope, limitations, interrelationships, and philosophical aspects of
various formalisms.

A broader aim of the workshop is to build a bridge between researchers into
theoretical aspects of structural proof theory and the more
application-oriented goals of the proof theory community, particularly in
cases where the methods, such as constructing analytic systems, are shared.
