LSFA'08 - Third Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with
Applications

August 26th, 2008
Salvador, Bahia, Brazil


SCOPE

Logical and semantic frameworks are formal languages used to represent
logics, languages and systems. These frameworks provide foundations for
formal specification of systems and programming languages, supporting
tool development and reasoning.

The objective of this one-day workshop is to put together theoreticians
and practitioners to promote new techniques and results, from the
theoretical side, and feedback on the implementation and use of such
techniques and results, from the practical side.

Topics of interest to this forum include, but are not limited to:

* Logical frameworks
        o Proof theory
        o Type theory
        o Automated deduction
* Semantic frameworks
        o Specification languages and meta-languages
        o Formal semantics of languages and systems
        o Computational and logical properties of semantic frameworks
* Implementation of logical and/or semantic frameworks
* Applications of logical and/or semantic frameworks

LSFA'08 also aims to be a forum for presenting and discussing work in
progress, and therefore to provide feedback to authors on their
preliminary research. Submissions to the workshop will in the form of
full papers. The proceedings are produced only after the meeting, so
that authors can incorporate this feedback in the published papers.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION


Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form
full papers with at most 16 pages. They must be unpublished and not

After the workshop, according to the quantity and quality of selected
papers, the authors will be invited to submit full versions of their works
that will be also reviewed to high standards. A special issue of LSFA'06
appeared in the Journal of Algorithms and currently a special issue of
LSFA'07 is being processed and will appear in The Logical Journal of the
