EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR FULL PAPERS - 27th May 2005
Deadline for extended abstracts (unchanged) - 3rd June 2005
Call for Papers: LOPSTR'05
International Symposium on Logic-based Program
Synthesis and Transformation
SEPTEMBER 7 - 9, 2005 : LONDON, UK.
The aim of the LOPSTR series is to stimulate and promote international
research and collaboration on logic-based program development; the
workshop is open to contributions in logic-based program development
in any language paradigm.
LOPSTR'05 will be held at Imperial College in London co-located with
SAS 2005: The International Static Analysis Symposium
LOPSTR has a reputation for being a lively, friendly forum for
presenting new work and discussing work in progress, so it is a real
workshop in the sense that it is also able to provide useful feedback
to authors on their preliminary research. Formal proceedings of the
workshop are produced only after the workshop, so that authors can
incorporate this feedback in the published papers.
Scope of LOPSTR
We solicit extended abstracts and full papers. Topics of
interest cover all aspects of logic-based program development,
all stages of the software life cycle, and issues of both
programming-in-the-small and programming-in-the-large.
Papers describing applications such as those in the areas
of verification and security are especially welcome.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:
* applications and tools
* proofs as programs
* component-based software development
* agent-based software development
* software architectures
* design patterns and frameworks
* program refinement and logics for refinement
Authors can either submit extended abstracts describing work in
progress or they can choose to submit full papers. Contributions
should be written in English and should be submitted electronically in
Postscript or PDF format.
Authors are also asked to register with the online site and submit titles and
abstracts of their intended submissions three days before the deadline.
Prospective authors who have difficulties
for the electronic submission may contact the chairman at

Full papers should not exceed 16 pages (including
references) in llncs format.
These papers will be judged using ordinary conference quality criteria
and accepted papers will have to be presented at the conference and will
automatically appear in the pre-proceedings as well as in the final
collection of papers, published in the LNCS series. The submission
deadline for full papers is May 27th, 2005.
Extended abstracts should not exceed 6 pages in llncs format
and may describe work in progress. Promising abstracts relevant to
the scope of LOPSTR will be selected for presentation at the conference.
The submission deadline for extended abstracts is June 3rd, 2005.
Accepted papers and abstracts will be collected in informal
pre-proceedings which will be available at the conference.
After the conference, authors of extended abstracts describing work
judged to be mature enough for publication will be invited to submit
full papers. These will be reviewed according to
the usual refereeing procedures. All accepted full papers, both those
accepted for the conference and those accepted full papers based on
the extended abstracts will be published in the final collection of
papers which is expected to be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
(see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/) series by Springer-Verlag.
Note that the full
papers accepted before the conference will automatically appear in that
book; there will be no additional refereeing (although authors
will be given a chance to revise their papers, if they so wish).
