International Summer School on Computational Logic
ISCL 2000

Maratea (Italy), September 3-8


The school is addressed to young researchers and PhD students, as well
as to university and industry researchers. Its main goal is to give
the participants an insight of some relevant research lines in
Computational Logic.


The school consists of six lectures on different topics, including
theoretical foundations and practical perspectives. Each lecture
covers one topic from basic notions to more advanced issues. PhD
students may ask to have a proficiency final exam at the end of the
school. The lecturers and the topics are the following:

- Moreno Falaschi (University of Udine, Italy). Optimization of
declarative languages.

- Thom Fruehwirth (LMU Munich, Germany). Constraint Programming and

- Peter Lee (Carnegie Mellon University, USA). Proof Carrying Code.

- Dale Miller (The Pennsylvania State University, USA). A Logic for
Reasoning about Logic Specifications.

- Paul Tarau (University of North Texas, USA). Logic Programming
based Internet Technologies.

- Frits Vaandrager (University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands).
Verification of timed and hybrid systems.


The lectures will be given in the congress center of Hotel Villa del
Mare, Acquafredda di Maratea (Basilicata, Italy) which is 6 km away
from Maratea. The hotel is in a beautiful position in front of the
sea, with a swimming pool, a lift to its private beach, cinema-club
and many other facilities. Maratea is an ancient city on the Gulf of
Policastro, founded during the Greek period. It is the only portion
of Lucania on the Tyrrhenian sea, situated in one of the mos
beautiful parts of the Italian southern coast.


The registration fee covers proceedings, full board, refreshments and
social events. There is no deadline for late registration, however the
number of participants is limited and application requests will be
served on a FIFO basis.

I would like to call your attention to a new website:

The site contains a number of topics related to the application of concepts
from dynamic systems to language acquisition, processing, and change. I
also discusses a number of related concepts including fractal computation. A
visitor comment section has been established in the hopes of an interactive
discussion of some of the ideas there.

I hope it will be of interest.
