Programming And Reasoning on Infinite Structures
A workshop affiliated with ***@FLOC 2018
July 7&8, 2018
Oxford, UK

Developing formal methods to program and reason about infinite data,
whether inductive or coinductive, is challenging and subject to
numerous recent research efforts. The understanding of the logical
and computational principles underlying these notions is reaching
a mature stage as illustrated by the numerous advances that have
appeared in the recent years.

Various examples of this can be viewed in recent works on co-patterns,
infinite proof systems for logics with induction and coinduction,
circular proofs, guarded recursive type theory, research effort on
integrated coinduction in proof assistants, concrete semantics of
coinductive computation, recent developments in infinitary rewriting,
or the unveiling of the Curry-Howard correspondence between temporal
logics and functional reactive programming, to name a few.

The workshop aims at gathering researchers working on these topics
as well as colleagues interested in understanding the recent results
and open problems of this line of research:

- For outsiders, the workshop will offer tutorial sessions and
survey-like invited talks.

- For specialists of the topic, the workshop will permit to gather
people working with syntactical or semantical methods, people
focusing on proof systems or programming languages, and foster
exchanges and discussions benefiting from their various

We are seeking for short submissions (~3-4 pages long) presenting
(i) new completed results
(ii) work in progress, or
(iii) advertising recently published results.

The workshop is affiliated with FSCD 2018, as part of the
Federated Logic Conference of 2018 and is funded by French ANR,
RAPIDO project.

** Invited speakers:

A tutorial and two invited talks will be announced shortly.

** Topics:

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest for the workshop are:

- Proof systems: proof system for logics with least and greatest fixed
points, infinitary and cyclic/circular proof systems

- Calculi: infinitary rewriting, infinitary λ-calculi, co-patterns

- Type systems: infinitary type systems, guarded recursive type theory

- Curry-Howard correspondence to linear temporal logic and functional
reactive programming

- Semantics: denotational and interactive semantics for infinite data
and computations

- Tools: extensions of programming languages and proof assistants to
better treat infinite data, results on extending programming
languages with primitives for manipulating infinite data such as
streams in a more structured and convenient way, coinductive proof
methods in proof assistants

- Proof theory and verification: the workshop will welcome works
demonstrating how proof-theoretical investigations can be applied
to model-checking problems, e.g. as in recent studies of higher-order
recursive schemes or infinitary proofs.
