11TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON FORMAL ENGINEERING APPROACHES TO SOFTWARE COMPONENTS AND ARCHITECTURES (FESCA 2014)
  Call for Papers
  (Satellite event of ETAPS)
  April 12th, 2014, Grenoble, France
  http://fesca.ipd.kit.edu/fesca2014/
* WORKSHOP AIM
  In recent years, the growing importance of functional correctness and
  the increased relevance of system quality properties (e.g. performance,
  reliability, security) have stimulated the emergence of analytical and
  modelling techniques for the design and development of software systems.
  With the increasing complexity of today's software systems, FESCA aims
  at addressing two research questions: (1) what role the software
  architecture can play in systematic addressing of the analytical and
  modelling challenges, and (2) how formal and semi-formal techniques can
  be applied effectively to make the issues easier to address
  automatically, with lower human intervention.
* TOPICS
  We encourage submissions on (semi-)formal techniques and their
  application that aid analysis, design and implementation of software
  applications, including the techniques in the realm of Model-Driven
  Development.
  In this context, the topics include (but are not limited to):
  Modelling
   - Modelling formalisms;
   - Models, metamodels and model transformations;
  Correctness checking
   - Temporal properties and their formal verification;
   - Interface compliance and contractual use of components;
  Correctness of models, metamodels and model transformations
  Analysis and prediction of quality attributes
   - Formal prediction and analysis;
   - Static and dynamic analysis;
   - Instrumentation and monitoring approaches;
  Industrial case studies and experience reports.
  Besides general software systems, FESCA is interested in methods
  focusing on a specific application domain, such as:
  - Cloud environment
  - Mobile and embedded systems
  - Information systems
  - Hardware infrastructures
  We encourage not only mature research results, submissions presenting
  innovative ideas and early results are also of interest.
* SUBMISSIONS
  Three kinds of submissions are solicited:
  - regular papers (up to 15 pages) presenting original and unpublished
  work related to the workshop topics,
  - position papers (up to 10 pages) presenting ideas and directions of
  interesting ongoing and yet unpublished research related to the workshop
  topics, and
- tool demonstration papers (up to 8 pages) presenting and highlighting
  the distinguishing features of a topic-related tool (co-developed by the
  authors).
* PROCEEDINGS
  -  Final versions of accepted regular and position papers will be
  published in a volume of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical
  Computer Science (EPTCS).
  -  The tool demonstration papers will not appear in the EPTCS
  proceedings, but will be included in the electronic pre-proceedings
  (distributed at the workhop) and made available on the workshop website.
* IMPORTANT DATES
  - Paper registration: December 6, 2013
  - Submission deadline: December 13, 2013
  - Notification of acceptance: January 20, 2014

12TH WORKSHOP ON QUANTITATIVE ASPECTS OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES AND SYSTEMS (QAPL 2014)
  Affiliated with ETAPS 2014
  April 12-13, 2014, Grenoble, France
  http://qapl14.inria.fr
* SCOPE
  Quantitative aspects of computation are important and sometimes essential in
  characterising the behaviour and determining the properties of systems. They
  are related to the use of physical quantities (storage space, time, bandwidth,
  etc.) as well as mathematical quantities (e.g. probability and measures for
  reliability, security and trust). Such quantities play a central role in
  defining both the model of systems (architecture, language design, semantics)
  and the methodologies and tools for the analysis and verification of system
  properties. The aim of this workshop is to discuss the explicit use of
  quantitative information such as time and probabilities either directly in the
  model or as a tool for the analysis of systems.
  In particular, the workshop focuses on:
  - the design of probabilistic, real-time, quantum languages and the
    definition of semantical models for such languages
  - the discussion of methodologies for the quantitative analysis of
    systems, for instance probabilistic and timing properties (e.g.
    security, safety, schedulability) and other quantifiable properties
    such as reliability (for hardware components), trustworthiness
    (in information security) and resource usage (e.g., worst-case
    memory/stack/cache requirements);
  - the probabilistic analysis of systems which do not explicitly incorporate
    quantitative aspects (e.g. performance, reliability and risk analysis)
  - applications to safety-critical systems, communication protocols, control
    systems, asynchronous hardware, and to any other domain involving
    quantitative issues
* TOPICS
  Topics include (but are not limited to) probabilistic, timing and general
  quantitative aspects in: Language design, Information systems, Asynchronous HW
  analysis, Language extension, Multi-tasking systems, Automated reasoning,
  Language expressiveness, Logic, Verification, Quantum languages, Semantics,
  Testing, Time-critical systems, Performance analysis, Safety, Embedded systems,
  Program analysis, Risk and hazard analysis, Coordination models, Protocol
  analysis, Scheduling theory, Distributed systems, Model-checking, Security,
  Biological systems, Cyber-physical systems, Concurrent systems, and Resource analysis.
* INVITED SPEAKERS
  - Stephen Gilmore, University of Edinburgh, UK
  - Oded Maler, Verimag, France
  - Nicolas Markey, LSV, CNRS and ENS Cachan, France
  - Enrico Vicario, University of Firenze, Italy
* SUBMISSIONS
  In order to encourage participation and discussion, this workshop solicits two
  types of submissions - regular papers and presentation reports:
  1. Regular paper submissions must be original work, and must not have been
     previously published, nor be under consideration for publication
     elsewhere. Regular paper submission must not exceed 15 pages, possibly
     followed by a clearly marked appendix which will be removed for the
     proceedings and contains technical material for the reviewers.
  2. Presentation reports concern recent or ongoing work on relevant topics and
     ideas, for timely discussion and feedback at the workshop. There is no
     restriction as for previous/future publication of the contents of a
     presentation. Typically, a presentation is based on a paper which recently
     appeared (or which is going to appear) in the proceedings of another
     recognized conference, or which has not yet been submitted. The (extended)
     abstract of presentation submissions should not exceed 4 pages.
  All submissions must be in PDF format and use the EPTCS latex style, see
  http://style.eptcs.org/. Submissions can be made on the following website:
    http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=qapl14
  The workshop PC will review all regular paper submissions to select
  appropriate ones, ones for acceptance in each category, based on their
  relevance, merit,  originality, and technical content. Presentation reports
  will receive a light weight review to establish their relevance for the
  workshop. The authors of accepted submissions of both types are expected
  to present and discuss their work at the workshop. Accepted regular papers
  will be published in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer
  Science (EPTCS). A special issue concerning the QAPL editions of 2011 and
  2012 is in preparation and a further special issues related to the QAPL
  editions of 2013 and 2014  will be considered.
* IMPORTANT DATES
  For regular papers:
    Abstract (optional): December 24, 2013
    Submission (regular paper): December 31, 2013
    Notification: February 7, 2014
    Final version (ETAPS proceedings): February 14, 2014
    Workshop: March 23 - 24, 2013

10TH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON REWRITING LOGIC AND ITS APPLICATIONS (WRLA 2014)
  Grenoble, France, April 5th and 6th, 2014
  http://www.dsic.upv.es/workshops/wrla2014/
  (in conjunction with ETAPS 2014
  17th European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software
  April 5-13, 2014, http://www.etaps.org/2014)
* AIMS AND SCOPE
  Rewriting logic (RL) is a natural model of computation and an
  expressive semantic framework for concurrency, parallelism,
  communication, and interaction. It can be used for specifying
  a wide range of systems and languages in various application
  fields. It also has good properties as a metalogical framework
  for representing logics. In recent years, several languages
  based on RL (ASF+SDF, CafeOBJ, ELAN, Maude) have been designed
  and implemented. The aim of the workshop is to bring together
  researchers with a common interest in RL and its applications,
  and to give them the opportunity to present their recent works,
  discuss future research directions, and exchange ideas.
* IMPORTANT DATES
  Submission deadline          December 30th 2013
  Author notification          February 2nd 2014
  Version informal proceedings February 14th 2014
* SUBMISSIONS
  The final program of the workshop will include regular papers,
  tool papers, and work-in-progress presentations. The program
  will also contain invited talks to be determined by the
  program committee. Papers must contain original contributions,
  be clearly written, include appropriate references, and
  comparison with related work. They must be unpublished and
  not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.
  Tool papers present a new tool, a new tool component, or
  novel extensions to an existing tool. They should provide a
  short description of the theoretical foundations with
  relevant citations, emphasize the design and implementation,
  and give a clear account of the tool's functionality. The
  described tools must be publicly available via the web.
  All submissions should be formatted according to the
  guidelines for Springer LNCS papers, and should be submitted
  electronically using EasyChair.



EAPLS PHD AWARD 2013
  Call for Nominations
  http://eapls.org/pages/phd_award/
* AWARD
  The European Association for Programming Languages and Systems
  has established a Best Dissertation Award in the international
  research area of programming languages and systems. The award
  will go to the PhD student who in the previous period has made
  the most original and influential contribution to the area. The
  purpose of the award is to draw attention to excellent work, to
  help the career of the student in question, and to promote the
  research field as a whole.
* ELIGIBILITY
  Eligible for the award are those who successfully defended their PhD
  - at an academic institution in Europe
  - in the field of Programming Languages and Systems
  - in the period from 1 November 2012 – 1 November 2013
* NOMINATIONS
  Candidates for the award must be nominated by their supervisor.
  Nominating a candidate consists of submitting the thesis to
  https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eaplsphd2013. The
  nomination must be accompanied by (a zip file containing)
  - a letter from the supervisor describing why the thesis should be
    considered for the award;
  - a report from an independent researcher who has acted as examiner
    of the thesis at its defense.
  The theses will be evaluated with respect to originality, influence,
  relevance to the field and (to a lesser degree) quality of writing.
* PROCEDURE
  The nominations will be evaluated and compared by an international
  committee of experts from across Europe. The procedure to be

5TH WORKSHOP ON DEVELOPMENTS IN IMPLICIT COMPUTATIONAL COMPLEXITY (DICE 2014)
  Call for Contributions
  April 5-6, 2014
  Grenoble, France (a satellite event of ETAPS 2014)
  http://dice14.tcs.ifi.lmu.de
* SCOPE AND TOPIC
  The area of Implicit Computational Complexity (ICC) has grown from
  several proposals for using logic and formal methods to provide
  languages for complexity-bounded computation (e.g. PTIME, LOGSPACE
  computation). Its aim is to study computational complexity without
  reference to external measuring conditions or particular machine
  models, but only in terms of language restrictions or
  logical/computational principles implying complexity properties.
  This workshop focuses on ICC methods related to programs (rather than
  descriptive methods). In this approach one relates complexity classes
  to restrictions on programming paradigms (functional programs, lambda
  calculi, rewriting systems), such as ramified recurrence, weak
  polymorphic types, linear logic and linear types, and interpretative
  measures. The two main objectives of this area are:
  - to find natural implicit characterizations of various
    complexity classes of functions, thereby illuminating their
    nature and importance;
  - to design methods suitable for static verification of
    program complexity.
  Therefore ICC connects both to the study of complexity classes and to
  static program analysis.  The workshop is open to contributions
  on various aspects of ICC including (but not exclusively):
  - types for controlling complexity
  - logical systems for implicit computational complexity
  - linear logic
  - semantics of complexity-bounded computation
  - rewriting and termination orderings
  - interpretation-based methods for implicit complexity
  - programming languages for complexity-bounded computation
  - theoretical foundations of program complexity analysis
  - application of implicit complexity to security
* INVITED SPEAKERS
  - Akitoshi Kawamura, University of Tokyo
  - Georg Moser, University of Innsbruck
* IMPORTANT DATES
  - Abstract submission: January 5, 2014
  - Notification: January 20, 2014
  - Final version: February 10, 2014
* SUBMISSION
  Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of up to 5 pages.
  Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop. Submissions will
  be judged on originality, relevance, interest and clarity. Preference
  will be given to abstracts describing work (including work in
  progress) that has not been published elsewhere before the workshop.
  Further details can be found at the workshop homepage.

5TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON UNIFYING THEORIES OF PROGRAMMING (UTP 2014)
  Call for Papers
  co-located with FM2014
  May 12-13, 2014
  Singapore
  http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~pat/UTP2014/index.html
* SCOPE
  Interest in the fundamental problem of the combination of formal notations
  and theories of programming has grown consistently in recent years.  The
  theories define, in various different ways, many common notions, such as
  abstraction, refinement, choice, termination, feasibility, locality,
  concurrency and communication.  Despite these differences, such theories
  may be unified in a way which greatly facilitates their study and comparison.
  Moreover, such a unification offers a means of combining different languages
  describing various facets and artifacts of software development in a seamless,
  logically consistent way.
* UTP
  Hoare and He's Unifying Theories of Programming (UTP) is widely acknowledged
  as one of the most significant such unification approaches. Based on their
  pioneering work, the aims of the UTP Symposium series are to reaffirm the
  significance of the ongoing UTP project and to stimulate efforts to advance.
  The Symposium provides a focus for the sharing of results by those already
  actively contributing, and raises awareness of the benefits of such unifying
  theoretical frameworks among the wider computer science and software
  engineering communities. To this end the Symposium welcomes contributions
  on all the themes that can be related to the Unifying Theories of Programming.
* SUBMISSIONS
  Papers may be up to 20 pages in length and should be prepared using LaTeX
  in Springer LNCS paper format.  Submissions should be made through the UTP
  2014 EasyChair site, see http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~pat/UTP2014
* PUBLICATION
  Symposium post-proceedings will appear in Springer's Lectures Notes in
  Computer Science, as in past editions of the Symposium. (To be confirmed.)

COMPUTABILITY IN EUROPE 2014: LANGUAGE, LIFE, LIMITS (CiE 2014)
  Call for Papers
  Budapest, Hungary
  June 23-27, 2014
  http://cie2014.inf.elte.hu
* IMPORTANT DATES
  Submission Deadline for LNCS:                   10 January 2014
  Notification of authors:                         3 March 2014
  Deadline for final revisions:                   31 March 2014
* HISTORY
  CiE 2014 is the tenth conference organized by CiE (Computability in
  Europe), a European association of mathematicians, logicians, computer
  scientists, philosophers, physicists and others interested in  new
  developments in computability and their underlying significance for the
  real world. Previous meetings have taken place in Amsterdam (2005),
  Swansea (2006), Siena (2007), Athens (2008), Heidelberg (2009), Ponte
  Dalgada (2010), Sofia (2011), Cambridge (2012), and Milan (2013).
  The motto of CiE 2014 "Language, Life, Limits" intends to put a special
  focus on  relations  between computational linguistics, natural and
  biological computing, and more traditional fields of computability theory.
  This is to be understood in its broadest sense including computational
  aspects of problems in linguistics, studying models of computation and
  algorithms inspired by physical and biological approaches as well as
  exhibiting limits (and non-limits) of computability when considering
  different models of computation arising from such approaches.
  As with previous CiE conferences the allover glueing perspective is to
  strengthen the mutual benefits of analyzing traditional and new
  computational paradigms in their corresponding frameworks both with
  respect to practical applications and a deeper theoretical understanding.

17TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THEORY AND APPLICATIONS OF SATISFIABILITY TESTING (SAT 2014)
  Call for Papers
  Vienna, Austria, July 14-17, 2014
  http://baldur.iti.kit.edu/sat2014
* AIMS
  The International Conference on Theory and Applications of
  Satisfiability Testing (SAT) is the primary annual meeting for
  researchers studying the theory and applications of the propositional
  satisfiability problem.
  It includes, besides plain propositional satisfiability, Boolean
  optimization (such as MaxSAT and Pseudo-Boolean (PB) constraints),
  Quantified Boolean Formulas (QBF), Satisfiability Modulo Theories
  (SMT), and Constraint Programming (CP) for problems with clear
  connections to Boolean-level reasoning.
* VENUE
  SAT 2014 takes place in Vienna, Austria, and will be part of the
  Vienna Summer of Logic. With over two thousand expected participants,
  the Vienna Summer of Logic 2014 will be the largest event in the
  history of logic, and will consist of twelve large conferences and
  numerous workshops, attracting researchers from all over the world.
* IMPORTANT DATES
  January 17, 2014: Abstract submission deadline
  January 24, 2014: Paper submission deadline
  March   17, 2014 (approx.): Response from authors begins, lasts 72 hours
  March   27, 2014: Acceptance notifications
  April   17, 2014: Final camera-ready versions
  July 14-17, 2014: Main conference and workshops
* SCOPE
  Topics include (but are not restricted to):
  - Theoretical advances (including exact algorithms, proof complexity,
    and other complexity issues);
  - Practical search algorithms;
  - Knowledge compilation;
  - Implementation-level details of SAT solving tools and SAT-based
    systems;
  - Problem encodings and reformulations;
  - Applications (including both novel applications domains and
    improvements to existing approaches);
  - Case studies and reports on insightful findings based on rigorous
    experimentation.
* OUT OF SCOPE
  Papers claiming to resolve a major long-standing open theoretical
  question in mathematics or computer science (such as those for which a
  Millennium Prize is offered, see http://www.claymath.org/millennium)
  are outside the scope of the conference because there is insufficient
  time in the schedule to referee such papers; instead, such papers
  should be submitted to an appropriate technical journal.
* SUBMISSIONS
  Submissions to SAT 2014 are solicited in three paper categories,
  describing original contributions:
  - REGULAR PAPERS (9 to 15 pages, excluding references)
    Regular papers should contain original research, with sufficient
    detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution.
    For papers reporting experimental results, authors are strongly
    encouraged to make their data and implementations available with
    their submission. Submissions reporting on case studies are also
    encouraged, and should describe details, weaknesses, and strengths
    in sufficient depth.
  - SHORT PAPERS (up to 8 pages, excluding references)
    The same evaluation criteria apply to short papers as to regular
    papers. They will be reviewed to the same standards of quality as
    regular papers, but will naturally contain less quantity of new
    material. Short papers will have the same status as regular papers
    and be eligible for the same awards (to be announced later).
  - TOOL PAPERS (up to 6 pages, excluding references)
    A tool paper should describe the implemented tool and its novel
    features. Here "tools" are interpreted in a broad sense, including
    descriptions of implemented solvers, preprocessors, etc., as well
    as systems that exploit SAT solvers or their extensions to solve
    interesting problem domains. A demonstration is expected to
    accompany a tool presentation. Papers describing tools that have
    already been presented previously are expected to contain
    significant and clear enhancements to the tool.

* DEADLINE
  Submission Deadline: March 1st, 2014
* AIM
  This is a book of collected articles presenting research in all aspects of
  automated reasoning, in particular the design of automated reasoning
  systems and their applications.
  A common theme behind Mark Stickel's work was developing techniques for
  building better automated reasoning systems. His discoveries were
  ground-breaking and include AC-unification, reasoning modulo a theory, term
  indexing, and thorough development of the SNARK and PTTP provers. In 2002 he
  received the Herbrand award for all his work, the highest award in automated
  reasoning (http://www.cadeinc.org/).
  We would like to honour Mark's achievements by editing a Festschrift
  comprised of articles in the spirit of his research approach: developing
  fundamental techniques driven by practical applications and informed by
  rigorous theory.
* SCOPE
  We invite high-quality submissions on the general topic of
  automated reasoning and its applications, especially but not
  exclusively to the design of automated theorem proving systems, with
  connections to any of Mark Stickel's research areas:
  - Automated theorem proving, including deductive and abductive reasoning
  - Implementation of and practice with automated reasoners
  - Algorithmics for automated reasoners: unification,
    matching, rewriting, indexing
  - Integration of general-purpose reasoning with external procedures
  - Spatial and temporal reasoning
  - Inference control, theory reasoning, semantic guidance for automated reasoners
  - Application of automated reasoners in mathematics,
    logic, program synthesis, natural language, and natural sciences
  - SAT-solving
  - Applications related to formal methods
* PUBLICATION DETAILS
  It is planned that the book will be published as an LNAI Festschrift
  with Springer.
* SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
  While it is expected that most of the papers will be regular
  technical papers, a few papers that combine scientific content
  with recollections of Mark Stickel's work and personality,
  as can be written by those who worked with him, are also sought.
  All papers will be refereed by anonymous peer reviewers, and
  read by the editors, according to the highest standards in terms
  of originality, significance, technical quality, and readability.
  Submissions must be in English and standard conforming pdf
  format. They must be unpublished and not submitted for
  publication elsewhere. However, significantly extended versions
  of papers published at conferences are welcome. Submissions
  of any length will be considered, but final versions may be
  limited by the editors depending on the totality of submissions.
  Authors are strongly encouraged to produce their papers in LaTeX.
  Formatting instructions and the LNCS style files can be obtained
  via http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
  Electronic submission via EasyChair is open at
  https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=festschriftmarkstick .
  In order to facilitate the planning of the book, authors are
  invited to notify the editors as soon as possible of their
  intention to submit with proposed topic and length. Early
  submission would be especially helpful for completing the
  review process sooner.

14TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RUNTIME VERIFICATION (RV 2014)
  Call for Papers
  September 22-25, 2014
  Toronto, Canada
  http://rv2014.imag.fr/
* SCOPE
  Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software
  and hardware system executions. Runtime verification techniques are crucial
  for system correctness, reliability, and robustness; they are significantly
  more powerful and versatile than conventional testing, and more practical
  than exhaustive formal verification. Runtime verification can be used prior
  to deployment, for testing, verification, and debugging purposes, and after
  deployment for ensuring reliability, safety, and security and for providing
  fault containment and recovery as well as online system repair.
* TECHNICAL RESEARCH PAPERS TRACK
  Technical research papers can be submitted in two categories: regular and
  short papers.
  - Regular papers (up to 15 pages) should present original unpublished results.
  Theoretical and experimental papers as well as papers on applications of
  runtime verification and case studies are all welcome. A non-monetary Best
  Paper Award will be given. A selection of accepted regular papers will be
  invited to appear in a special issue of the Springer Journal on Formal
  Methods in System Design.
  - Short papers (up to 5 pages) may present novel but not necessarily
  thoroughly worked out ideas, for example emerging runtime verification
  techniques and applications, or techniques and applications that establish
  relationships between runtime verification and other domains. Accepted
  short papers will be presented in special short talk (10 minutes) and
  poster sessions.
* TOOL DEMONSTRATION TRACK
  The aim of the RV 2014 tool demonstration track is to provide an opportunity
  for researchers and practitioners to show and to discuss the latest advances,
  experiences and challenges in devising and developing reliable software
  tools for runtime verification. Tool papers should meet the following criteria:
  A tool paper should present a new tool, a new tool component or novel
  extensions to existing tools supporting runtime verification. Each submission
  should be original and not published previously in a tool paper form.
  Each submission must not exceed 8 pages in the LNCS/Springer proceeding
  format, including all text, references and figures. The paper must be written
  in English and provided in PDF format.
  Each submission must be accompanied at the time of the submission by a short
  screencast (between 5-10 minutes), with voice and overlay text commentary
  illustrating the demonstration of the tool (a link to it should be provided
  in the paper).
