  Third Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with Applications

  August 26th, 2008
  Salvador, Bahia, Brazil


  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.

  Contributions should be written in English and submitted in the form
  full papers with at most 16 pages. They must be unpublished and not
  submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. The submission
  should be in the form of a PDF file uploaded to LSFA'08 page at
  EasyChair until the submission deadline in May 18, by midnight, Central

  The papers should be prepared in latex using Elsevier ENTCS style. The
  workshop pre-proceedings, containing the reviewed extended abstracts,
  will be handed-out at workshop registration and the proceedings will be
  published as a volume of ENTCS.

  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

  At least one of the authors should register at the conference. The
  paper presentation should be in English.
