CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue on Domain Theory

Journal of Logic and Algebraic Programming (JLAP)

Following the successful Domains X conference, 5-7 September, 2011,
Swansea, Wales, there will be a special issue in Journal of Logic and
Algebraic Programming (JLAP). This is an open call, and not restricted
to contributions presented at the conference.

The topics cover a broad range related to Domain Theory and its
applications, see below. For further information on the Domains X
conference see:

                            Scientific scope

Domain theory has had applications to programming language semantics
and logics (lambda-calculus, PCF, LCF), recursion theory
(Kleene-Kreisel countable functionals), general topology (injective
spaces, function spaces, locally compact spaces, Stone duality),
topological algebra (compact Hausdorff semilattices) and analysis
(measure, integration, dynamical systems). Moreover, these
applications are related - for example, Stone duality gives rise to a
logic of observable properties of computational processes.  As such,
domain theory is highly interdisciplinary. Topics of interaction with
domain theory include:

- program semantics
- program logics
- probabilistic computation
- exact computation over the real numbers
- lambda calculus
- games
- models of sequential computation
- constructive mathematics
- recursion theory
- realizability
- real analysis and computability
- topology, metric spaces and domains
- locale theory
- category theory
- topos theory
- type theory

The conference had two special themes:

- modelling computational effects
- modelling continuous data

Papers on these themes are particularly welcome.


Submissions should adhere to the usual standards of scientific journal
publications. A full refereeing process will be used.

Submissions should be made on the online submission system for JLAP at:

Authors should select 'Special Issue:Domains X 2011' as 'Article Type', and
John V. Tucker as 'Receiving Editor'.

        Deadline for submissions

February 29, 2012

Ulrich Berger, Swansea University, UK
Jens Blanck, Swansea University, UK
Martin Escardo, University of Birmingham, UK
Klaus Keimel, TU Darmstadt, Germany
