 ===================== CALL FOR PAPERS ======================
                 24th International Symposium on
        Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation
                          LOPSTR 2014
   University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, September 10-11, 2014
 Abstract submission:                     May 30, 2014
 Paper/Extended abstract submission:      June 6, 2014
 NEW! Invited Speakers:
      Roberto Giacobazzi (University of Verona, Italy)
      Viktor Kuncak (EPFL, Switzerland)
 The aim of the LOPSTR series is to stimulate and promote international
 research and collaboration on logic-based program development. LOPSTR
 is open to contributions in logic-based program development in any
 language paradigm. LOPSTR has a reputation for being a lively,
 friendly forum for presenting and discussing work in progress. Formal
 proceedings are produced only after the symposium so that authors can
 incorporate this feedback in the published papers.
 The 24th International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and
 Transformation (LOPSTR 2014) will be held at the University of Kent,
 Canterbury, United Kingdom; previous symposia were held in Madrid,
 Leuven, Odense, Hagenberg, Coimbra, Valencia, Lyngby, Venice, London,
 Verona, Uppsala, Madrid, Paphos, London, Venice, Manchester, Leuven,
 Stockholm, Arnhem, Pisa, Louvain-la-Neuve, and Manchester.
 LOPSTR 2014 will be co-located with PPDP 2014 (International ACM SIGPLAN
 Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming).
 Topics of interest cover all aspects of logic-based program
 development, all stages of the software life cycle, and issues of both
 programming-in-the-small and programming-in-the-large. Both full
 papers and extended abstracts describing applications in these areas
 are especially welcome. Contributions are welcome on all aspects of
 logic-based program development, including, but not limited to:
     * synthesis
     * transformation
     * specialization
     * composition
     * optimization
     * inversion
     * specification
     * analysis and verification
     * testing and certification
     * program and model manipulation
     * transformational techniques in SE
     * applications and tools
 Survey papers that present some aspects of the above topics from a new
 perspective, and application papers that describe experience with
 industrial applications are also welcome.
 Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in
 English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
 published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal,
 conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Work that already
 appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings
 may be submitted (please contact the PC co-chairs in case of questions).
 Important Dates
  Abstract submission:                            May 30, 2014

 Submission Guidelines
 Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in English)
 in PDF, formatted in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science style.
 Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors
 and their affiliations; contact author's email; abstract; and three to
 four keywords which will be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate
 reviewers for the paper. Page numbers should appear on the manuscript to
 help the reviewers in writing their report. Submissions cannot exceed 15
 pages including references but excluding well-marked appendices not intended
 for publication. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus
 papers should be intelligible without them.
 Paper should be submitted via the Easychair submission website for LOPSTR 2014.
 If electronic submission is impossible, please contact the program co-chairs
 for information on how to submit hard copies.
 The formal post-conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the
 Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Full papers can be directly accepted
 for publication in the formal proceedings, or accepted only for presentation at
 the symposium and inclusion in informal proceedings. After the symposium, all
 authors of extended abstracts and full papers accepted only for presentation
 will be invited to revise and/or extend their submissions in the light of the
 feedback solicited at the symposium. Then, after another round of reviewing,
 these revised papers may also be published in the formal proceedings.
