WST 2022 - 18th International Workshop on Termination

Background

The Workshop on Termination (WST) traditionally brings together, in an informal setting, researchers interested in all aspects of termination, whether this interest be practical or theoretical, primary or derived. The workshop also provides a ground for cross-fertilization of ideas from the different communities interested in termination (e.g., working on computational mechanisms, programming languages, software engineering, constraint solving, etc.). The friendly atmosphere enables fruitful exchanges leading to joint research and subsequent publications.

The 18th International Workshop on Termination continues the successful workshops held in St. Andrews (1993), La Bresse (1995), Ede (1997), Dagstuhl (1999), Utrecht (2001), Valencia (2003), Aachen (2004), Seattle (2006), Paris (2007), Leipzig (2009), Edinburgh (2010), Obergurgl (2012), Bertinoro (2013), Vienna (2014), Obergurgl (2016), Oxford (2018) and virtually (2021).

Important Dates

  • submission deadline: May 3, 2022

  • final version due: June 22, 2022
  • workshop: August 11-12, 2022

Workshop Topics

The 18th International Workshop on Termination welcomes contributions on all aspects of termination. In particular, papers investigating applications of termination (for example in complexity analysis, program analysis and transformation, theorem proving, program correctness, modeling computational systems, etc.) are very welcome.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • termination analysis in any domain (lambda calculus, declarative programming, rewriting, transition systems, probabilistic programs, etc.)
  • complexity analysis in any domain
  • abstraction methods in termination analysis
  • certification of termination and complexity proofs
  • challenging termination problems
  • comparison and classification of termination methods
  • implementation of termination and complexity methods
  • non-termination analysis and loop detection
  • normalization and infinitary normalization
  • operational termination of logic-based systems
  • ordinal notation and subrecursive hierarchies
  • SAT, SMT, and constraint solving for (non-)termination analysis
  • scalability and modularity of termination methods
  • well-founded relations and well-quasi-orders

Submission

Submissions are short papers/extended abstracts which should not exceed 5 pages. There will be no formal reviewing. In particular, we welcome short versions of recently published articles and papers submitted elsewhere. The program committee checks relevance and provides additional feedback for each submission. The accepted papers will be made available electronically before the workshop.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission page:

Please, use LaTeX and the LIPIcs style file to prepare your submission.
