CALL FOR PAPERS: Proof, Structure and Computation, 17-18 Jul 2014, Vienna, AUSTRIA

PSC 2014 - CSL-LICS Workshop

=== Highlights ===

  - PSC welcomes submissions of short abstracts: 1-2 pages in LNCS format
  - Invited speakers: Ulrich Berger and Martin Escardo
  - Post-proceedings are planned for a journal special issue

=== Important Dates ===

  1 May 2014 ...................... Abstract submission
  16 May 2014 ................... Notification to authors
  16 June 2014. ................. Camera-ready abstracts for electronic
  17-18 July 2014? .... PSC in Vienna

=== Scope ===

The extraction of computational content from proofs has a long tradition in 
logic, but usually depends on a concrete encoding that allows us to turn proofs 
into algorithms. A recent trend in this field is the departure from such 
encoding which not only makes it simpler to represent the mathematical content, 
but also makes the extracted computational content encoding independent. This 
shift in focus allows us to focus on what is relevant: the computational 
aspects of proofs and the specification (not representation) of the structures 
involved. We now have growing evidence that this move from representations 
(e.g. the signed digit representation of the reals) to axioms (e.g. of the real 
numbers) is possible. This development largely parallels the step from 
assembler to high level languages in programming. As a by-product this move has 
already opened up the possibility to gain computational information from 
axiomatic proofs in more abstract and genuinely structural areas of mathematics 
such as algebra and topology.

=== Invited Speakers ===

  Ulrich Berger (Swansea University, UK)
  Martin Escardo (University of Birmingham, UK)

=== Submissions ===

We welcome 1-2-page abstracts presenting (finished, ongoing, or if
clearly stated even published) work on proof, structure, and computation.
Particular topics of interest are

  *  Proof Theory
  *  Program Extraction
  *  Constructive Mathematics
  *  Topology and Computation
  *  Realisability Semantics
  *  Coalgebra and Computation
  *  Categorical Models
  *  Domain Theory
  *  Interval Analysis

=== Submission Guidelines ===

Abstracts are invited of ongoing, finished, or (if clearly stated) even
published work on a topic relevant to the workshop.

The abstracts will appear in electronic pre-proceedings that will be
distributed at the meeting.

Abstracts (at most 2 pages, in LNCS style) are to be be submitted
electronically in PDF via EasyChair

Accepted communications must be presented at the workshop by one of the

=== Special Issue ===

We plan to invite extended versions of selected abstract with original
work to post-proceedings in a journal special issue. They will be
peer-reviewed according to the standard journal policy.
