Author notification:     19 May 2008

The LFMTP workshop continues the International workshop on Logical
Frameworks and Meta-languages (LFM) and the MERLIN workshop on
MEchanized Reasoning about Languages with variable BIndingIN.

Logical frameworks and meta-languages form a common substrate for
representing, implementing, and reasoning about a wide variety of
deductive systems of interest in logic and computer science. Their
design and implementation on the one hand and their applications in
for example proof-carrying code have been the focus of considerable
research over the last two decades. This workshop will bring together
designers, implementors, and practitioners to discuss all aspects of
logical frameworks and variable binding.

The broad subject areas of LFMTP'08 are:

* The automation and implementation of the meta-theory of programming
   languages and related calculi, particularly work which involves
   variable binding and fresh name generation.
* The theoretical and practical issues concerning the encoding of
   variable binding and fresh name generation, especially the
   representation of, and reasoning about, datatypes defined from binding
* Case studies of meta-programming, and the mechanization of the
   (meta)theory of descriptions of programming languages and other
   calculi.  Papers focusing on logic translations and on experiences
   with encoding programming languages theory are particularly welcome.

Topics include, but are not limited to

     * logical framework design
     * meta-theoretic analysis
     * applications and comparative studies
     * implementation techniques
     * efficient proof representation and validation
     * proof-generating decision procedures and theorem provers
     * proof-carrying code
     * substructural frameworks
     * semantic foundations
     * methods for reasoning about logics
     * formal digital libraries

Program Committee:

Peter Dybjer        (Chalmers University of Technology)
Alberto Momigliano  (University of Edinburgh)
Brigitte Pientka    (McGill University)
Randy Pollack       (University of Edinburgh)
Carsten Schuermann  (IT University of Copenhagen)
Peter Sewell        (University of Cambridge)
Aaron Stump         (Washington University)
Christian Urban     (TU Munich)

Three categories of papers are solicited:

   * Category A: Detailed and technical accounts of new research: up
     to fifteen pages including bibliography.
   * Category B: Shorter accounts of work in progress and proposed
     further directions, including discussion papers: up to eight
     pages including bibliography and appendices.
   * Category C: System descriptions presenting an implemented tool
     and its novel features: up to six pages. A demonstration is
     expected to accompany the presentation.

Submission is electronic.  Authors are required to submit a paper
title and a short abstract of about 100 words before submitting the

Papers are to be submitted in postscript or PDF format and must
conform to the ENTCS style preferably using LaTeX2e. For further
information and submission instructions, see the LFMTP web page:

Proceedings are to be published as a volume in the Electronic Notes in
Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) series and will be available to
participants at the workshop.

Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their paper at
the workshop.
