Call for Papers: 20th WADT (Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques)

[sorry if you receive this more than once]


WADT 2010
20th International Workshop on
Algebraic Development Techniques

July 1-4, 2010, Etelsen, Germany

Aims and Scope:
The algebraic approach to system specification encompasses many
aspects of the formal design of software systems. Originally born
as formal method for reasoning about abstract data types, it now
covers new specification frameworks and programming paradigms
(such as object-oriented, aspect-oriented, agent-oriented, logic
and higher-order functional programming) as well as a wide range
of application areas (including information systems, concurrent,
distributed and mobile systems).

The workshop will provide an opportunity to present recent and
ongoing work, to meet colleagues, and to discuss new ideas and
future trends.

Topics of interest:
Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:
- Foundations of algebraic specification
- Other approaches to formal specification, including process
calculi and models of concurrent, distributed and mobile computing
- Specification languages, methods, and environments
- Semantics of conceptual modelling methods and techniques
- Model-driven development
- Graph transformations, term rewriting and proof systems
- Integration of formal specification techniques
- Formal testing and quality assurance, validation, and verification

Submission deadline for abstracts: April 30, 2010
Notification of acceptance: May 23, 2010
Final abstract due: June 13, 2010
Workshop: July 1-4, 2010

Workshop Format and Location:
The workshop will take place over four days, Thursday to Sunday,
at Schloss Etelsen,, a castle located near
Bremen. Presentations will be selected on the basis of submitted
abstracts. Three talks will be given by invited speakers.

The scientific program of the workshop will include presentations
of recent results and ongoing research. The presentations will be
selected by the Steering Committee on the basis of the submitted
abstracts according to originality, significance, and general

The abstracts have to be submitted electronically according to the
instructions published on the workshop web site. The final
versions of the selected abstracts will be included in a hand-out
for the workshop participants.

After the workshop, selected authors will be invited to submit
full papers for the refereed proceedings, which is expected to be
published as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(Springer Verlag).

The workshop takes place under the auspices of IFIP WG 1.3, and is
sponsored by IFIP TC1, University of Bremen, and DFKI GmbH. The
event is organized by the Computer Science Department of the
University of Bremen and the DFKI Bremen group Safe and Secure
Cognitive Systems.

of submissions solicited after the workshop.
