[PVS] Call for participation: Workshop on Mechanizing Metatheory



             ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Mechanizing Metatheory

                           25 September, 2010
                          Baltimore, Maryland
                        (Co-located with ICFP'10)

SPECIAL 5TH ANNIVERSARY PROGRAM

  Researchers in programming languages have long felt the need for tools to
  help formalize and check their work. With advances in language technology
  demanding deep understanding of ever larger and more complex languages,
  this need has become urgent. The goal of the WMM workshops is to bring
  researchers who are (or would like to be) using automated proof assistants
  for programming language metatheory together with developers of proof
  assistants with an interest in supporting research in programming
  languages.

  This WMM is an occasion to look back at five years of intensive effort on
  formalizing programming languages. The centerpiece of the event will be a
  series of invited talks in which major players in the area look both back
  and forward, offering their perspectives on what has been achieved and
  what challenges remain.  A session of contributed talks rounds out the
  day.
