Dear Jens
  some members of the the Turin group on Semantics and Logic of
Computation are specifically interested in type based program
analysis. Here is a short presentation of the activities and an
exhaustive list of the publications in the field. Most of the papers
are available from the home page of the group
         http://www.di.unito.it/~lambda/g1/
  The activity, up to now, has been mainly focused on strictness
and useless code analysis for higher order functional programs.
  Type systems for strictness analysis have been proposed in [CF93]
(for an untyped language) and [CDG97], [CDG0X] for a typed language.
In these last two papers the relations with totality analysis are
also considered. In [DG97] an inference algorithm for strictness is
proposed.
   The investigations of useless code started with the work of
S. Berardi [Ber96] (see also [Boe94], [BerBoe95] and [BerBoe97]).
This approach was further developed in [CDG96], [DG00] and [D99].
The use of intersection types for useless code analysis has been
especially considered in [DP98] and [D00]. An overview of type based
useless code analysis can be found in [BCDG00].
