First International Summer School in Logic for Computer Science
"PROOF THEORY and FOUNDATIONS OF PROGRAMMING"
June 28 -- July 9, 1993, University of Chambery (France)
Parc Scientifique Savoie-Technolac, Le Bourget-du-lac
The series of International Summer Schools in Logic for Computer
Science is part of the "Euroconferences" program of the European
Community, and is supported by the European Association for Computer
Science Logic. It is intended primarily for young researchers in
Computer Science or in Mathematics, who are interested in "Logical
Tools and Methods for Computer Science", from the viewpoints of both
theory and applications. Each school is devoted to a specific topic,
whose theoretical foundations have developed recently, and which has
promising applications.
The topic of this year's school is "Proof Theory and Foundations of
Programming". The lectures will analyse the relations between formal
proofs and programs, from their historical roots in Proof Theory and
Lambda Calculus to their most recent theoretical and practical
advances. The well-known correspondence between constructive proofs
and functional programs provides a theoretical framework for the
mathematization of programming, and has important consequences, which
include program correctness, modularity, and reusability. The subject
is undergoing at present impressive developments in various
directions, including automatic extraction of programs from proofs,
correspondence between classical logic and imperative program
constructs, control of computational complexity at the level of proof
systems, and new computational paradigms derived from proof theory.
During the two week school participants would be able to attend
comprehensive courses as well as informal talks, and to take active
part in discussions of open problems. The following courses will be
offered.
J.Y. GIRARD (Marseille, France):
Fundamentals of Proof Theory: Proofs and Types.
S. RONCHI (Torino, Italy):
Fundamentals of Lambda-calculus
S. BERARDI (Torino, Italy):
Program Extraction from Constructive Proofs
J.L. KRIVINE (Paris, France):
Programming with Proofs in Second Order Logic
D. LEIVANT (Bloomington, USA):
Computational Complexity inherent in Type Systems
M. PARIGOT (Paris, France):
Algorithmic Interpretations of Classical Logic
L. REGNIER (Marseille, France):
New Models of Execution derived from Proof Nets
A. SCEDROV (Philadelphia, USA):
Linear Logic
J. TIURYN (Warsaw, Poland):
Type Reconstruction
The school will take place at the University of Chambery, near Lake
Bourget (``Lac du Bourget'') in the High Alps. In addition to its
stunning alpine setting, Chambery offers a broad range of activities
and recreations, benefitting from its proximity to both high mountains
and an 18 km long lake. Participants will also be offered organized
activities.
The participation fees amount to 5200 FF, which include registration
fees and living expenses (lodging, meals, coffee breaks, ...etc).
A limited number of grants will be offered.
Deadline for Applications: April 15th 1993
