Second Workshop on Logical and Semantic Frameworks, with Applications

August 28th, 2007
Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil

(Satellite Event to SBMF'07, the Brazilian Symposium on Formal Methods)


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´07 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.

Camera ready:                   July 31st

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 They must be unpublished and not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

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. Currently a special
issue of the first edition of the workshop LSFA'06 is being processed
and will appear in the new Elsevier Journal on Algorithms in Applied
