This is the homepage of LFMTP 2017. The current content is preliminary, and we will extend it as we make progress with the organization.
Logical frameworks and meta-languages form a common substrate for representing, implementing, and reasoning about a wide variety of deductive systems of interest in logic and computer science. Their design and implementation and their use in reasoning tasks ranging from the correctness of software to the properties of formal computational systems have been the focus of considerable research over the last two decades. This workshop will bring together designers, implementors, and practitioners to discuss various aspects impinging on the structure and utility of logical frameworks, including the treatment of variable binding, inductive and co-inductive reasoning techniques and the expressiveness and lucidity of the reasoning process.
LFMTP 2017 will provide researchers a forum to present state-of-the-art techniques and discuss progress in areas such as the following:
- Encoding and reasoning about the meta-theory of programming languages and related formally specified systems.
- Theoretical and practical issues concerning the treatment of variable binding, especially the representation of, and reasoning about, datatypes defined from binding signatures.
- Logical treatments of inductive and co-inductive definitions and associated reasoning techniques.
- New theory contributions: canonical and substructural frameworks, contextual frameworks, proof-theoretic foundations supporting binders, functional programming over logical frameworks, homotopy type theory.
- Applications of logical frameworks, e.g., in proof-carrying architectures such as proof-carrying authorization.
- Techniques for programming with binders in functional programming languages such as Haskell, OCaml, or Agda and logic programming languages such as lambda Prolog or Alpha-Prolog.
FMTP 2017 will be also the occasion to celebrate the 70th birthday of Randy Pollack, author of the LEGO proof assistant and many other contributions to this field.

The following paper categories are welcome:
- Full papers describing original research and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
- Work-in-progress reports, in a broad sense. Those do not need to report fully polished research results, but should be interesting for the community at large.
Submitted papers should be in PDF, formatted using the ACM SIGCONF format. The page limit is 8 pages for full papers, and 4 pages for work-in-progress reports.
Submission is via EasyChair. Submit to LFMTP17 now!
Accepted regular papers will be included in the proceedings, which will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
