***********************************************************************
      3rd International Workshop about Sets and Tools (SETS 2018)
                    June 5, 2018, Southampton, UK

AIM

Sets and constructs built upon them like relations, functions and
sequences are the main modeling ingredients of formalisms such as VDM,
Z, B, or Event-B. Sets also occur in the formalization of mathematics,
as evidenced by the large library of the Mizar proof system, for
example. In addition, still in the domain of verification, there is an
increasing interest to automate set theory (which is known to be a
difficult problem), with some concrete realizations, such as mp (the
"main prover" of Atelier B) or Muscadet (an automated theorem prover
for natural deduction, which gives some good performances in set
theory). Sets are also the main features of some programming languages
like the former SetL language or the more recent {log} language
(pronounced as setlog).

The workshop aims at bringing together researchers interested in set
theory, especially to design tools for dealing with set theory, such as
interactive or automated theorem provers, proof checkers, theories for
general purpose proof tools, constraint solvers, programming languages
etc. We are interested in specialized tools for set theory as well as
general-purpose tools where sets coexist with other theories.
Contributions by theoreticians working on the mechanical processing of
(fragment of) set theory, and by practitioners using set-based tools
are both welcome. We are also interested in contributions providing
some comparisons between set modeling techniques and other formalisms,
such as type theory (and its variants) for instance. Finally, regarding
the domains of application, we mainly expect contributions in the
framework of formal methods, but we are open to, for instance,
contributions reporting formalizations of mathematics using set theory.


TOPICS

Topics of interest for this workshop include all aspects of set theory
and corresponding tools. More specifically, some suggested topics are:

 * Proof tools for sets
 * Constraint solvers for sets
 * Set-based programming languages
 * Automated verification in set theory
 * Encoding of sets in provers
 * Set theories for SMT solvers
 * Use of set-based tools in formal methods
 * Use of set-based tools in mathematics
 * Using any of the above tools to teach set theory
 * Comparison of set-based tools
 * Comparison between set and type theories
 * Experience reports


CONTRIBUTIONS AND PROCEEDINGS

Submitted papers must be 6-15 pages long, following the Springer LNCS
format. These submissions may be:

 * Research papers providing new concepts and results
 * Position papers and research perspectives
 * Experience reports
 * Tool presentations

Proceedings, including all the papers selected for the workshop, will
be published as online proceedings in the CEUR workshop proceedings
series (CEUR-WS.org).
