(ICALP Workshop-Lisbon July 16-17, 2005) STRUCTURES AND DEDUCTION The quest for the essence of proofs http://www.prooftheory.org/sd05 Submissions page is now open! http://www.easychair.org/SD05/submit/ This meeting is about new algebraic and geometric methods in proof theory, with the aim of expanding our ability to manipulate proofs, eliminate bureaucracy from deductive systems, and ultimately provide: 1) a satisfying answer to the problem of identity of proofs and 2) tools for improving our ability to implement logics. Stimulated by computer science, proof theory is progressing at fast pace. However, it is becoming very technical, and runs the risk of splitting into esoteric specialties. The history of science tells us that this has happened several times before, and that these centrifugal tendencies are very often countered by conceptual reunifications, which occur when one is looking at a field after having taken a few steps back. Some emerging ideas are showing their unifying potential. Deep inference's atomization of deductions simplifies and unifies the design of deduction systems; it provides unprecedented plasticity to proofs and has injected new impetus into the theory of proof nets. New proof nets, and new associated semantics, are giving surprising insight about the very subtle relationship between categories and proofs, for example in the formerly intractable case of classical logic. The field of deduction modulo, which turns out to be very much in the spirit of deep inference, decreases our dependency on the syntactic presentation of functional objects, and brings us closer to their intrinsic nature, even from the computational point of view. After studying all those trees for years we at last have the impression of looking at the forest. The core topics are organised along the axis: algebraic semantics deduction of proofs deep inference modulo game semantics operads and specification <--> structads <--> proof nets proof search calculus of deductive structures implementations proof nets This workshop aims at being a meeting point for all those who are interested in decreasing the dependency of logic from low-level syntax. The list of topics above is not exhaustive: if you feel you can contribute to the discussion along the broad lines outlined above, please submit your contribution. SUBMISSION, IMPORTANT DATES AND PUBLICATION Contributions such as work in progress, programmatic/position papers, tutorials, as well as regular papers are more than welcome. We will favor the former over regular papers that seem to us to be minor contributions, although we will definitely not reject major contributions! Submissions should be formatted with the LNCS LaTeX style, and should take between two and fifteen pages, to allow the committee to assess their merits with reasonable effort. This limit can be relaxed for the versions that will be presented at the workshop, depending on the total bulk of the accepted contributions. We want to make clear that contributions from members of the PC are allowed. Contributions should be submitted electronically at the following site (powered by EasyChair, thanks to Andrei Voronkov): http://www.easychair.org/SD05/submit/ submission: 15.4.2005 notification: 22.5.2005 final version: 10.6.2005 The volume of proceedings will be made available elctronically, allowing authors to keep their copyrights. The issue of printed proceedings is still under discussion.
