The area of Implicit Computational Complexity (ICC) has grown out from several proposals
 to use logic and formal methods to provide languages for complexity-bounded computation
 (e.g. Ptime, Logspace computation). It aims at studying computational complexity without
 referring to external measuring conditions or a particular machine model, but only by
 considering language restrictions or logical/computational principles implying complexity properties. 
This workshop focuses on ICC methods related to programs (rather than descriptive methods). 
In this approach one relates complexity classes to restrictions on programming paradigms 
(functional programs, lambda calculi, rewriting systems), such as ramified recurrence, weak 
polymorphic types, linear logic and linear types, and interpretative measures. The two main 
objectives of this area are:
- to find natural implicit characterizations of various complexity classes of functions, thereby 
                   illuminating their nature and importance;
- to design methods suitable for static verification of program complexity.

Therefore ICC is related on the one hand to the study of complexity classes, and on the other 
hand to static program analysis. The workshop will be open to contributions on various aspects 
of ICC including (but not exclusively):
- types for controlling complexity,
- logical systems for implicit computational complexity,
- linear logic,
- semantics of complexity-bounded computation,
- rewriting and termination orderings,
- interpretation-based methods for implicit complexity,
- programming languages for complexity-bounded computation,
- application of implicit complexity to other programming paradigms  
  (e.g. imperative or object-oriented languages).


An open call for post-proceedings, as special issue of 
                                          INFORMATION & COMPUTATION 
will follow.
