 Call for Papers
 SNS 6
 Sixth Annual Conference on Teaching Spanish to Native Speakers
 June 16-18, 2000
 Las Cruces, New Mexico

Presentations: Submissions are being sought for 30-minute paper sessions
(20 minutes presentation 10 minutes discussion) and 2-hour workshop sessions
(1.5 hours presentation, .5 hour discussion). Topics may be drawn from any
discipline, but should be broadly related to advancing knowledge of this
growing field by identifying the unique social or linguistic characteristics
of Native Spanish Speakers (e.g. issues in identity, social history,
dialect, proficiency, etc.), developing pedagogical theory and/or
implementing pedagogical techniques that address the specific needs of
Spanish speakers.

Submission Guidelines: To propose either a paper or a workshop, submit two
copies of a one-page anonymous abstract which includes the title and
outlines the focus of the paper or workshop and the audience for which your
presentation is intended (elementary, secondary, post-secondary, adult
education, community). At the top of the abstract indicate the forum for
your presentation as either "Paper" or "Workshop". Submit a separate page
which includes the presentation forum (paper or workshop), presentation
title, name, affiliation, address, phone and e-mail of all presenters.
Please also indicate any special audio-visual needs required for the
presentation on this page. (Forms follow this announcement for ease of
submission.)

Mail, fax or e-mail the information requested in the submission guidelines
to the Conference Co-Chairs below by the deadline of April 17, 2000.

Message 2: 10th International Workshop on Logic-based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2000)

Date: Fri, 3 Mar 2000 09:29:31 +0100 (MET)
From: F. van Raamsdonk <femkeskiff.cs.vu.nl>
Subject: 10th International Workshop on Logic-based Program Synthesis and Transformation (LOPSTR 2000)



 First Call for Papers

 LOPSTR 2000

 Tenth International Workshop on
 Logic-based Program Synthesis and Transformation 

 Program Development Stream of CL 2000
 First International Conference on Computational Logic

 24-28 July 2000
 Imperial College, London, UK

 http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~kung-kiu/lopstr2000

LOPSTR 2000, The Tenth International Workshop on Logic-based Program 
Synthesis and Transformation will be held on 24-28 July 2000 at
Imperial College, London, UK, as the Program Development Stream at
CL2000, the First International Conference on Computational Logic.

The aim of LOPSTR ( http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~kung-kiu/lopstr ) is to
stimulate and promote international research and collaboration on 
logic-based program development, and the workshop is open to
contributions in logic-based program development in any paradigm. Past
workshops were held in Manchester, UK (1991, 1992, 1998),
Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium (1993), Pisa, Italy (1994), Arnhem, the
Netherlands (1995), Stockholm, Sweden (1996), Leuven, Belgium (1997),
Venice, Italy (1999).

LOPSTR also aims to be a lively, friendly forum for presenting and
discussing work in progress, so it is a real workshop in the sense
that it is intended to provide useful feedback to authors on their
preliminary research. Formal proceedings of the workshop are produced
only after the workshop, in order that authors can incorporate this
feedback in the published papers.

LOPSTR 2000 will be run as follows:
- Authors submit extended abstracts (8 pages) describing work in progress.
- Promising abstracts relevant to the scope of LOPSTR are selected
 for presentation at the workshop.
- At the workshop, only informal pre-proceedings of the selected
 abstracts are available (usually in the form of a technical report).
- After the workshop, authors of the best abstracts are invited to
 submit full papers. These are reviewed, and accepted papers then
 form the formal (fully refereed) proceedings of the workshop,
 currently published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series,
 by Springer-Verlag. 

 Topics
 ------
We solicit extended abstracts describing work in progress. 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.

For programming-in-the-small, the following is a non-exhaustive list:
- specification - analysis 
- synthesis - optimisation
- verification - composition
- transformation - reuse
- specialisation - applications

For programming-in-the-large, the above topics are particularly of
current interest in the context of:
- component-based software development 
- software architectures 
- design patterns and frameworks.

 Submission Guidelines
 ---------------------
Extended abstracts should be written in English and should not exceed
8 pages in llncs format http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Abstracts must be submitted electronically using the submission form
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~kung-kiu/lopstr2000/subm

Submission deadline: 21 April 2000
Notification: 26 May 2000
