                  Organised in conjunction with WCGP '02

                            8--10 July, 2002

                             CALL FOR PAPERS

This conference aims to promote the development of mathematical
principles and techniques that are demonstrably useful and usable
in the process of constructing computer programs (whether
implemented in hardware or software).
The focus of the conference is on techniques that combine
precision with conciseness, enabling programs to be constructed by
formal calculation.  Within this theme, the scope of the conference
is very diverse.  We welcome contributions to  programming
methodology (for example, formal methods for program specification
and transformation), to programming paradigms (for example,
generic programming techniques and type systems) and to language
design (for example, programming calculi and programming language
semantics).  Theoretical contributions are welcome provided their
relevance to program construction is evident; discussion of
applications is welcome provided the mathematical basis is evident.

The conference will be organised in conjunction with the IFIP TC2
Working Conference on Generic Programming, WCGP '02. There will also be
a number of co-located workshops, including CMPP.
