CALL FOR PAPERS: Logic and Computational Complexity + Immerman's 60th Birthday, 12-13 Jul 2014, Vienna, AUSTRIA

http://www.cs.swansea.ac.uk/lcc2014/

LCC 2014

LCC 2014/ImmermanFest WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT and CALL FOR PAPERS

      Abstract submission deadline:  May  2nd, 2014
      Authors' notification:         May 19th, 2014

The Fifteenth International Workshop on Logic and Computational
Complexity and Workshop in Honor of Neil Immerman's 60th Birthday
(LCC 2014/ImmermanFest, http://www.cs.swansea.ac.uk/lcc2014/)
will be held in Vienna, Austria, on July 12-13, 2014, as an
affiliated meeting of the Vienna Summer of Logic.  The
LCC 2014/ImmermanFest program will consist of a first day
(July 12th) of talks which include both invited lectures and
contributed talks selected by the program committee (based on
submitted abstracts), and a second day (July 13th) devoted entirely
to invited talks in celebration of Neil Immerman's 60th birthday.

LCC meetings are aimed at the foundational interconnections
between logic and computational complexity, as present in, for
example: finite model theory and descriptive complexity; 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); logic and complexity-theoretic
aspects of databases; complexity-mindful program verification and
synthesis; computational complexity at higher type; and proof
complexity.

Neil Immerman has made numerous fundamental and inspiring
contributions to the connections between logic and complexity.
In particular, he has been one of the leading figures in the
development of descriptive complexity, which has elucidated
intimate and beautiful connections between complexity theory and
finite model theory.  This year, day two of LCC 2014 will honor
Neil's 60th birthday with a series of invited lectures by some of
the leading researchers working in areas that have been
influenced by Neil's work.

The invited speakers on day one of LCC 2014 are:

     * Sam Buss (University of California, San Diego)
     * Georg Moser (University of Innsbruck)

The invited speakers for ImmermanFest (day two) are:

     * Eric Allender (Rutgers)
     * Anuj Dawar (University of Cambridge)
     * Phokion Kolaitis (University of California, Santa Cruz)
     * Benjamin Rossman (Tokyo Institute of Technology)
     * Mooly Sagiv (Tel Aviv University)
     * Nicole Schweikardt (Goethe University Frankfurt am Main)

There will be no published proceedings for LCC 2014, and we
welcome submissions of abstracts based on work submitted or
published elsewhere, provided that all pertinent information is
disclosed at submission time. Submissions must be in English and
in the form of an abstract of about 3-4 pages.  All submissions
should be submitted through Easychair at:
    http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lcc2014
by the deadline.  For additional information see
http://www.cs.swansea.ac.uk/lcc/ or email lcc2014@easychair.org
