LOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING One day workshop in connection with ECOOP'94. July 4, 1994, Bologna, Italy * The aim of this workshop is to investigate the relation between logic, computing and object oriented programming. * Topics. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: logic based models for Object Oriented Programming; logic and change; use of logic in object-oriented domain modeling and analysis; declarative object-oriented real-time systems; abstraction, encapsulation, and information hiding in logic; knowledge-structuring mechanisms in logic (inheritance, overriding...); process-oriented mechanisms in logic (communication, synchronization...). Last but not least, descriptions of applications developed on logic based object-oriented environments are welcome. * Organizers: Jean-Marc Andreoli (Rank-Xerox, Grenoble, France) and Vijay Saraswat (Xerox, Palo-Alto, California). * Submissions. Position paper (e-mail if possible, latex prefered) by May 13, 1994, to Jean-Marc Andreoli, Rank Xerox Research Center, 6 Chemin de Maupertuis, 38240 Meylan (France). Tel: +33 76 61 50 80.

Participation in the workshop is free, but each workshop participant must have registered for ECOOP. WORKSHOP: HYBRID SYSTEMS AND AUTONOMOUS CONTROL October 28-30, 1994, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA * Hybrid systems are interacting networks of digital and continuous devices. Typically they occur in digital control systems, in business, industry, and the military. In that context, the fundamental problems are extraction of digital control programs from systems equations and performance specifications, and formal verification and statistical testing that digital control programs enforce the system performance specification. * Program Committee.

SUMMER SCHOOL ON PARTIAL EVALUATION 5-9 July 1994, Carnegie Mellon University, by Charles Consel, Olivier Danvy, and Peter Lee * The aim of the summer school is to introduce the principles, techniques, and applications of partial evaluation. This presentation will be done in the context of Consel's partial evaluator for procedural languages, Schism. Students will get hands-on experience with the course concepts by working directly with Schism, studying both its use and its internals. Also, various applications of partial evaluation will be covered such as pattern matching and parameterized programming. The lecture notes will be based on Consel and published at The MIT Press. * Course fee: $350. * Information: consel@cse.ogi.edu, danvy@daimi.aau.dk INT'L CONF. ON THE MATHEMATICS OF PROGRAM CONSTRUCTION July 17-21, 1995, Kloster Irsee, Germany * Topics. The emphasis is on the combination of conciseness and precision in calculational techniques for program construction. Typical areas are: formal specification of sequential and concurrent programs; constructing implementations to meet specifications. In particular, program transformation; program analysis; program verification; convincing case studies. While this list is not exclusive it is intended to show the focus of the conference. * Programme Committee. R.-J. Back, R. Backhouse, G. Dromey, D. Gries, I. Hayes, R. Hehner, W. Hesselink, G.

NEW BOOK: A LOGICAL APPROACH TO DISCRETE MATH by David Gries and Fred B. Schneider * Abstract. Logic is the glue that binds together arguments and proofs in all domains. This text aims to teach the use of this fundamental and pervasive tool and exercise it thoroughly in applications that arise in computer science and mathematics. It's a uniquely different approach. First, an equational propositional and predicate logic is given. The goals are to give a solid introduction to formal proofs (instead of informal ones), teach proof strategies and principles, and imbue a skill in formal manipulation. Equational logic allows this to be accomplished without complexities of formalism overwhelming. In fact, formalism and rigor are shown to be an enlightening and simplifying force. Thereafter, conventional discrete-maths topics are discussed (set theory, induction, relations, functions, integers, combinatorics, recurrence relations, and graph theory) with the equational logic providing the underpinnings. Our experience teaching from the text is that students end up with less fear of mathematics and notation, a better understanding of proof, and an appreciation for rigor and formalism. * Publisher.
