CFP: Second miniKanren and Relational Programming Workshop

Thu 27 Aug 2020, Virtually Everywhere,
Part of the 2020 International Conference on Functional Programming

About mKW

The miniKanren and Relational Programming Workshop is a new workshop for the miniKanren family of relational (pure constraint logic  programming) languages: miniKanren, microKanren, core.logic, OCanren,  Guanxi, etc. The workshop solicits papers and talks on the design,  implementation, and application of miniKanren-like languages.

A major goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers,  implementors, and users from the miniKanren community, and to share  expertise and techniques for relational programming. Another goal for  the workshop is to push the state of the art of relational programming — for example, by developing new techniques for writing  interpreters, type inferencers, theorem provers, abstract  interpreters, CAD tools, and other interesting programs as relations,  which are capable of being “run backward”, performing synthesis, etc.

Invited Speakers

  • Eelco Visser (TU Delft) – “Executing Declarative Language Definitions”
  • Matthew Might (UAB, HMS) – “The Pill is in The Proof: Saving Lives with Logic”

Being a virtual event this year, registration is unusually affordable. Student ACM or SIGPLAN members can register early for free, for instance.

There is a single fee for access to all events during ICFP 2020, including workshops, keynotes, technical talks, tutorials, social events, and more. While some parts of the technical program will be freely available online, registration will be required for the interactive parts of the week, including social events, discussions, and tutorials.
