Call for Papers

Second International Workshop on Linearity


Tallinn, Estonia
1 April 2012

An associated event of ETAPS 2012, European Joint Conferences on Theory 
and Practice of Software

With the urge for more robust, verifiable and optimised programming 
languages, the interest for linearity in order to have more control on 
computational resources is increasing in several areas of Computer 
Science, both in the theoretical side: with work on proof technology, 
complexity classes and more recently quantum computation, and in the 
practical side: work on program analysis, expressive operational 
semantics, linear languages, and techniques for program transformation, 
update analysis and efficient implementation. The aim of this workshop 
is to bring together researchers who are currently developing theory and 
applications of linear calculi, to foster their interaction and provide 
a forum for presenting new ideas and work in progress, and enable 
newcomers to learn about current activities in this area.  LINEARITY 
2012 will be a one-day satellite event of ETAPS 2012.

Topics of interest include foundational calculus, models, applications 
to programming languages and systems. This includes (but is not limited 

     * Linear types: session types, etc
     * Linear calculi;
     * Functional calculi: lambda-calculus, rho-calculus, term and graph 
     * Object calculi;
     * Interaction-based systems: interaction nets, games;
     * Concurrent models: process calculi, action graphs;
     * Calculi expressing locality, mobility, and active data;
     * Quantum computational models;
     * Biological or chemical models of computation;

Important Dates

     * 16 December 2011: Abstract deadline (registration with easychair)
     * 22 December 2011: Submission deadline
     * 20 January 2012: Author notification
     * 3 February 2012: Deadline for final versions of accepted papers
     * 1 April 2012: Workshop

Submission and Publication

Authors are invited to submit a short paper (5-7 pages). Preliminary 
proceedings will be available at the workshop. Papers should be written 
in English, and submitted in PostScript or PDF format, using the EPTCS 
style files.

Submission is through the Easychair website:

After the workshop authors are invited to submit a revised version (12 
pages) of their presentation. After a second round of refereeing, 
accepted contributions will appear in an issue of Electronic Proceedings 
in Theoretical Computer Science (www.eptcs.org).

Authors and participants will also be invited to submit an article to a 
special issue of a Journal.
