The International Conference on Mathematics of Program Construction
(MPC) aims to promote the development of mathematical principles and
techniques that are demonstrably practical and effective in the
process of constructing computer programs.

MPC 2019 will be held in Porto, Portugal from 7-9 October 2019, and is
co-located with the International Symposium on Formal Methods, FM 2019.

Previous conferences were held in Königswinter, Germany (2015); Madrid,
Spain (2012); Québec City, Canada (2010); Marseille, France (2008);
Kuressaare, Estonia (2006); Stirling, UK (2004); Dagstuhl, Germany (2002);
Ponte de Lima, Portugal (2000); Marstrand, Sweden (1998); Kloster Irsee,
Germany (1995); Oxford, UK (1992); Twente, The Netherlands (1989). 


MPC seeks original papers on mathematical methods and tools put to use
in program construction. Topics of interest range from algorithmics to
support for program construction in programming languages and systems.
Typical areas include type systems, program analysis and transformation,
programming language semantics, security, and program logics. The notion
of a 'program' is interpreted broadly, ranging from algorithms to hardware.

Theoretical contributions are welcome, provided that their relevance
to program construction is clear. Reports on applications are welcome,
provided that their mathematical basis is evident. We also encourage
the submission of 'programming pearls' that present elegant and
instructive examples of the mathematics of program construction. 


Submission is in two stages. Abstracts (plain text, maximum 250 words)
must be submitted by 26th April 2019. Full papers (pdf, formatted using
the llncs.sty style file for LaTex) must be submitted by 3rd May 2019.
There is no prescribed page limit, but authors should strive for brevity.
Both abstracts and papers will be submitted using EasyChair.

Papers must present previously unpublished work, and not be submitted
concurrently to any other publication venue. Submissions will be
evaluated by the program committee according to their relevance,
correctness, significance, originality, and clarity. Each submission
should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms,
clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is
significant, and comparing it with previous work. Accepted papers must
be presented in person at the conference by one of the authors.

The proceedings of MPC 2019 will be published in the Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) series, as with all previous instances
of the conference.  Authors of accepted papers will be expected to
transfer copyright to Springer for this purpose.

After the conference, authors of the best papers from MPC 2019 and
MPC 2015 will be invited to submit revised versions to a special
issue of Science of Computer Programming (SCP).

For any queries about submission please contact the program chair,
