Logical Frameworks and Meta-Languages: Theory and Practice
LFMTP 2020

Paris, France
29 June 2020

Affiliated with FSCD 2020 and IJCAR 2020

Abstract submission deadline: 5 April 2020
Paper submission deadline: 11 April 2020


To celebrate the 60th birthday of Frank Pfenning and his great many
contributions to the topics of LFMTP, one session will be devoted to
talks by collaborators and friends of Frank.


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.

* 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.

* Abstract submission deadline: 5 April 2020
* Submission deadline: 11 April 2020
* Notification to authors: 13 May 2020
* Final version due: 22 May 2020
* Workshop: 29 June 2020


In addition to regular papers, we accept the submission of "work in
progress" reports, in a broad sense. Those do not need to report fully
polished research results, but should be of interest for the community
at large.

Submitted papers should be in PDF, formatted using the EPTCS LaTeX
style. The length is restricted to 15 pages for regular papers and 8
pages for "Work in Progress" papers.

Submission is via EasyChair:

All submissions will be peer-reviewed and the authors of those accepted
will be invited to present their papers at the workshop.


After the workshop we will publish post-proceedings in the Electronic
Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) series.

Accepted regular papers will be published in the post-proceedings.

Authors of selected work-in-progress papers will be invited to submit
the full versions of their papers for publication in the post-
proceedings, subject to another round of review.
