4th International Workshop on Implicit Computational Complexity

The Implicit Complexity Workshop (ICC'02) will be held on 20-21 July
2002 in Copenhagen as part of the Federated Logic Conference


Implicit Computational Complexity concerns the theory and
application of logic-based, machine-independent approaches to
computational complexity.  These approaches have opened new ways of
incorporating aspects of computational complexity into areas such as
formal methods in software development, programming language design,
and database theory.

The workshop seeks original research reports on advances in implicit
computational complexity.  Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

  * automatic complexity analysis of programs
  * complexity analysis for functional languages
  * higher-type computational complexity
  * logical and machine-independent characterizations
       of complexity classes
  * logics closely related to complexity classes
  * software that applies ICC ideas in programming language design
       and in formal methods
  * type systems for controlling complexity


The program will consist of invited talks, sessions of contributed
papers, and software demonstrations.

Paper Submission

The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
elsewhere.  Survey papers that present some unified perspectives are
welcome.  One author of each accepted paper is expected to present
the paper at the meeting.  Proposed contributions should be
submitted as extended abstracts, no more than 10 pages long in
11-point font.  It must be in English and provide sufficient detail
to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It
should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of
the main results, and an explanation of their significance and
relevance to the workshop. Detailed proofs, examples, programs, and
other technical information may be included in the form of

All submissions must be done electronically unless the authors have
limited access to email.  Please email your submission to
royer at, with the phrase ``ICC submission'' as the message
subject.  Also email (to royer at separate a cover letter,
stating the paper's title, one corresponding author with complete
contact information (address, email, phone, fax), and names and
affiliation of other authors, if any.  The organizers expect to have
proceedings of the workshop published after the meeting
