The aim of the school is the dissemination of advanced scientific
knowledge and the promotion of international contacts among scientists.
The school is oriented to students and researchers working in computer
science and interested in formal techniques for the design and construction
of software systems and programming languages.

The school is partially supported by the EU LerNet ALFA project
(http://www.di.uminho.pt/lernet/), which implements a joint PhD programme
on Software Design and Programming Language Engineering, based on a
co-tutoring scheme and conformed by 6 european universities and 5 from
Latin America.


LERNET 2008 will consist of six courses:

- Introduction to Type Theory
Herman Geuvers (Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands)

- Theory and Applications of the PF-transform
Jose Nuno Oliveira (University of Minho, Portugal)

- Embedded Domain Specific Languages: Combinator Parsers
Doaitse Swierstra (Utrecht University, The Netherlands)

- Dependent Types at Work
Peter Dybjer and Ana Bove (Chalmers University, Sweden)

- Formal Programming Language Semantics with Inductive Types
Yves Bertot (INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, France)

- Verification Methods for Software Security and Correctness
Gilles Barthe (INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, France)

In addition, there will be some PhD sessions where students from the
LerNet project will expose advances of their PhD thesis.


LERNET 2008 will be held at Argentino Hotel 
located in Piriápolis, a seaside city, 100 kms east from Montevideo.
