iPrA 2014 - 2ND WORKSHOP ON INTERPOLATION: FROM PROOFS TO APPLICATIONS
 
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
 
Date:     July 17-18, 2014
Location: Vienna, Austria (co-located with the Vienna Summer of Logic)
Web:      http://vsl2014.at/meetings/iPRA-index.html
 
IMPORTANT DATES
 
Submission deadline: April 30, 2014, AOE
 Notification:        May 7, 2014
 Workshop:            July 17-18, 2014
 
 ORGANISATION AND COMMITTEE
 
 Laura Kovacs and Georg Weissenbacher
 
 SCOPE
 
 Craig interpolation enjoys a continuing popularity in computer
 science. Historically, Craig's interpolation theorem has received
 ample attention in proof theory and mathematical logic as well as in
 complexity theory. Recently, interpolants are increasingly used in
 automated verification, synthesis, and description logics. The aim of
 the workshop is to bring together theoreticians and practitioners from
 these different fields.
 
 We solicit submissions in form of an abstract of at most one page in
 PDF format. The authors of accepted abstracts are required to
 present their work at the workshop. There will be no published
 proceedings.
 
 We encourage submissions presenting work in progress, tools under
 development, as well as research of PhD students, such that the
 workshop can become a forum for active dialog between the groups
 involved in applications of interpolation. We also encourage
 contributions from outside the verification community.
 
 Presentations of recently published papers are also allowed and
 encouraged, but please indicate on your submission where the paper was
 published/presented.
 
 Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) applications of
 interpolation in:
 
 - Interpolating decision procedures
 - Proof theoretic approaches to interpolation
 - Proof systems and calculi for interpolation
 - Proof transformation techniques
 - Inductive Proofs
 - Logical Abduction
 - Interpolation techniques based on constraint solving, linear programming...
 - Alternative techniques for interpolation
 - Interpolation theorems (for theories and extensions, non-classical
   logic, ...)
 - Interpolation-based/Inductive invariant generation
 - Program analysis and verification
 - Tools for interpolation
 - Applications of Craig interpolation (verification, synthesis,
   automated reasoning, ...)
 - Forgetting, variable elimination, and uniform interpolation
 - Complexity results and limitations
 ...
 
 FORMAT
 
 The workshop will feature
 
 - invited talks and tutorials by distinguished speakers,
 - presentations (selected by a committee based on the submission of
   abstracts) by workshop participants, and
 - discussion and panel sessions.
 
 INVITED TALKS
 
 As part of the workshop program we will have invited talks given by
 the following distinguished speakers:
 
 - Orna Grumberg (Technion, Israel)
 - Pavel Pudlak (Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic)
 - Frank Wolter (University of Liverpool, UK)
 
 The titles and abstracts of the talks/tutorials will be announced
 on the workshop web-page closer to the date.
 
 SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
 
 Abstracts (at most one page in PDF format) have to be submitted until
 April 30 via the EasyChair system:
 
 https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ipra2014
 
 The authors will be notified on May 7, 2014.
 There will be no formal workshop proceedings.
 
 REGISTRATION
 
 Registration for the workshop will be possible via the VSL
