Third international workshop on Implicit Computational Complexity-2001 (ICC'01)

affiliated with PADO and MFPS

The Implicit Computational Complexity Workshop (ICC'01) will be held on Sunday, 20 May 2001 -- Monday 21 May 2001 in Aarhus as part of the joint PADO/MFPS 2001/a> conferences.

Topics of Interest

The synergy between Logic, Computational Complexity and Programming Language Theory has gained importance and vigour in recent years, cutting across areas such as Proof Theory, Computation Theory, Applicative Programming, and Philosophical Logic. Several machine-independent approaches to computational complexity have been developed, which characterize complexity classes by conceptual measures borrowed primarily from mathematical logic. Collectively these approaches might be dubbed IMPLICIT COMPUTATIONAL COMPLEXITY.

Practically, implicit computational complexity provides a framework for a streamlined incorporationof computational complexity into areas such as formal methods in software development, programming language theory. In addition to research reports on theoretical advances in implicit computational complexity, practical contributions bridging the gap between Computational Complexity and Programming Language Theory are therefore of particular interest.
