we would like to announce a few changes to the LFMTP 2020 workshop,
that is scheduled to take place on 29th June 2020, co-located with FSCD
and IJCAR this year.
1) LFMTP 2020 will follow FSCD-IJCAR lead to move to an online-only
format for this year.
2) We will now require only a 2-page abstract submission, instead of a
full paper. The abstracts will go through a quick informal review.
Accepted abstracts will be invited for presentation at the workshop.
After the workshop, authors will be invited to submit the full versions
of their submissions for the post proceedings, which will undergo a
3) The submission deadline is now extended to 18 May 2020.
The amended call for papers can be found below.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Logical Frameworks and Meta-Languages: Theory and Practice
29 June 2020
Affiliated with FSCD 2020 and IJCAR 2020
Submission deadline: 18 May 2020
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, implementation and their use in reasoning tasks, ranging from
the correctness of software to the properties of formal systems, have
been the focus of considerable research over the last two decades. This
workshop will bring together designers, implementors and practitioners
to discuss various aspects impinging on the structure and utility of
logical frameworks, including the treatment of variable binding,
inductive and co-inductive reasoning techniques and the expressiveness
and lucidity of the reasoning process.
LFMTP 2020 will provide researchers a forum to present state-of-the-art
techniques and discuss progress in areas such as the following:
* Encoding and reasoning about the meta-theory of programming
languages, process calculi and related formally specified systems.
* Formalisation of model-theoretic and proof-theoretic semantics of
* Theoretical and practical issues concerning the treatment of variable
binding, especially the representation of, and reasoning about,
datatypes defined from binding signatures.
* Logical treatments of inductive and co-inductive definitions and
associated reasoning techniques, including inductive types of higher
dimension in homotopy type theory.
* Graphical languages for building proofs and their applications in
geometry, equational reasoning and category theory.
* New theory contributions: canonical and substructural frameworks,
contextual frameworks, proof-theoretic foundations supporting binders,
functional programming over logical frameworks, homotopy and cubical
* Applications of logical frameworks: proof-carrying architectures,
proof exchange and transformation, program refactoring, etc.
* Techniques for programming with binders in functional programming
languages such as Haskell, OCaml or Agda, and logic programming
languages such as lambda Prolog or Alpha-Prolog.
* Design and implementation of systems and tools related to meta-
languages and logical frameworks
All deadlines are established as the end of day (23:59) AoE.
* Submission deadline: 18 May 2020
* Notification to authors: 1 June 2020
* Workshop: 29 June 2020
We solicit submissions of long abstracts describing original research
results or descriptions of work in progress. The topics of the
submissions should be of interest to the LFMTP community at large.
Submitted papers should be in PDF, formatted using the EPTCS LaTeX
style. The length is restricted to 2 pages.
Submission is via EasyChair:
All submissions will undergo a light peer-review process and the
authors of those accepted will be invited to present their papers at
After the workshop we will publish post-proceedings in the Electronic
Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) series.
Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit the full
versions of their papers for publication in the post-proceedings,
subject to another round of review.
