                             TAASN 2009
         2nd International Workshop on Theory and Applications of
                  Abstraction, Substitution and Naming


                        22nd March 2009, York, UK
                            (part of ETAPS)

Mathematical treatments of concrete syntax have always been a central
concern in symbolic computation, programming language implementation
and computer-aided reasoning. Theories of abstract syntax have proved
harder to find, especially those addresssing properties related to
substituting structures for variables, delimiting the scope of names,
and sharing common substructures.  The main purpose of this workshop is
to bring together researchers who are applying logic, category theory
and set theory to the study of abstract syntax in computer languages,
as well as researchers who are building computer systems based on
those theories. Papers describing applications in computational logic,
program language design, and mechanised theorem proving are
particularly welcome.

The 2nd International Workshop on Theory and Applications of
Abstraction, Substitution and Naming (TAASN 2009) will take place in
York, UK, on the 22nd March 2009, as a one-day satellite event of
ETAPS 2009.  The first workshop in this series took place in Edinburgh
in May 2007.
