[DMANET] LSFA 2023: 1st CfP


18th Logical and Semantic Frameworks with Applications - LSFA 2023

1-2 July 2023


Affiliated to FSCD 2023, Rome, Italy

First Call For Papers


Logical and semantic frameworks are formal languages used to
represent logics, languages and systems. These frameworks provide
foundations for the formal specification of systems and computational
languages, supporting tool development and reasoning. The LSFA
series' objective is to put together theoreticians and practitioners
to promote new techniques and results, from the theoretical side, and
feedback on the implementation and the use of such techniques and
results, from the practical side.

See https://lsfa-workshop.github.io/ for more information.

LSFA topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Automated deduction
* Applications of logical and semantic frameworks
* Computational and logical properties of semantic frameworks
* Formal semantics of languages and systems
* Implementation of logical and semantic frameworks
* Lambda and combinatory calculi
* Logical aspects of computational complexity
* Logical frameworks
* Process calculi
* Proof theory
* Semantic frameworks
* Specification languages and meta-languages
* Type theory


Contributions should be written in English and submitted as full papers
(with a maximum of 16 pages) or as short papers (with a maximum of 6
They must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication
elsewhere. The papers should be prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS style.
The submission should be in the form of a PDF file uploaded to Easychair:


The pre-proceedings, containing the reviewed papers, will be available
on the conference webpage by the time of the event.
After the meeting, the authors will be invited to submit full
versions of their works for the post-proceedings publication in
EPTCS (TBC). At least one of the authors of each submission must
register for the conference. Presentations should be in English.

According to the submissions' quality, the chairs will promote the
further publication of journal revised versions of the papers.
Previous LSFA Special Issues have been published in journals such
as The Logical J. of the IGPL, Theoretical Computer Science and
Mathematical Structures in Computer Sciences (see the LSFA page
