                    LOPSTR 2017: 1st Call for Papers

                      27th International Symposium on
             Logic-Based Program Synthesis and Transformation 
                             LOPSTR 2017


                  University of Namur, Namur, Belgium
                         October 10 – 12, 2017
                      (co-located with PPDP 2017)
  DEADLINES: Abstract submission:                  June 6, 2017
             Paper/Extended abstract submission:   June 13, 2017
  INVITED SPEAKERS: to be announced

  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 27th International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and
  Transformation (LOPSTR 2017) will be held at the University of
  Namur, Belgium; previous symposia were held in Edinburgh, Siena,
  Canterbury, 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 2017 will be co-located with PPDP 2017
  (International Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative

  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 chair in case of questions).

  Important Dates

  Abstract submission:                             Jun  6, 2017

  Notification:                                   July 25, 2017

  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 authors email; abstract; and
  three to four keywords which will be used to assist the PC in
  selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Page numbers (and, if
  possible, line 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. Papers should be
  submitted via the Easychair submission website for LOPSTR 2017:
  [http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lopstr2017] (can be
  accessed also through the LOPSTR 2017 web site).

  Best Paper Award and Prize

  A best paper award will be granted, which will include a 500 EUR prize
  provided by Springer.  This award will be given to the best paper
  submitted to the conference, based on the relevance, originality, and
  technical quality. The program committee may split the award among two
  or more papers, also considering authorship (e.g., student paper).


  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
