31st International Symposium on Logic-Based Program Synthesis and


Tallinn, Estonia, September 7-9, 2021
(co-located with PPDP 2021)


The aim of the LOPSTR series is to stimulate and promote international
research and collaboration on logic-based program development. LOPSTR is
open to contributions in logic-based program development in any language
paradigm. LOPSTR has a reputation for being a lively, friendly forum for
presenting and discussing work in progress. Formal proceedings are
produced only after the symposium so that authors can incorporate this
feedback in the published papers.

The 31st International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and
Transformation (LOPSTR 2021) will be held at the Teachers' House in
Tallinn, Estonia.
Previous symposia were held in Bologna (as a virtual meeting), Porto,
Frankfurt am Main, Namur, Edinburgh, Siena, Canterbury, Madrid, Leuven,
Odense, Hagenberg, Coimbra, Valencia, Kongens Lyngby, Venice, London,
Verona, Uppsala, Madrid, Paphos, London, Venice, Manchester, Leuven,
Stockholm, Arnhem, Pisa, Louvain-la-Neuve, and Manchester.
LOPSTR 2021 will be co-located with PPDP 2021 (International Symposium
on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming).

Topics of interest cover all aspects of logic-based program development,
all stages of the software life cycle, and issues of both
programming-in-the-small and programming-in-the-large, including, but
not limited to:

- synthesis
- transformation
- specialization
- composition
- optimization
- inversion
- specification
- analysis and verification
- testing and certification
- program and model manipulation
- machine learning for program development
- verification and testing of machine learning systems
- transformational techniques in SE
- applications and tools

Both full papers and extended abstracts describing foundations and
applications in these areas are welcome. Survey papers that present some
aspects of the above topics from a new perspective and papers that
describe experience with industrial applications are also welcome.

Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English,
and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published
or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or
workshop with refereed proceedings. Work that already appeared in
unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be
submitted (please contact the PC chairs in case of questions).

* Important Dates *

Abstract submission (optional): May 1, 2021 (AoE)
Paper/Extended abstract submission: May 15, 2021
Notification: July 1, 2021
Camera-ready (for electronic pre-proceedings): August 20, 2021
Symposium: September 7-9, 2021
Revised paper submission: November 1, 2021 (AoE)
Notification: December 1, 2021
Final version (for post-proceedings): January 16, 2022

* Submission Guidelines *

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in
English) in PDF, formatted in LNCS style. Each submission must include
on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations;
contact author's email; abstract; and three to four keywords which will
be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the
paper. Page numbers (and, if possible, line numbers) should appear on
the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing their report. Full
papers cannot exceed 15 pages excluding references. Extended abstracts
cannot exceed 8 pages excluding references. Additional pages may be used
for appendices not intended for publication. Reviewers are not required
to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without
them. Papers should be submitted via EasyChair:

* Proceedings *

The formal post-conference proceedings will be published by Springer in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series as in previous years. Full
papers can be directly accepted for publication in the formal
proceedings, or accepted only for presentation at the symposium and
inclusion in informal proceedings. After the symposium, all authors of
extended abstracts and full papers accepted only for presentation will
be invited to revise and/or extend their submissions. Then, after
another round of reviewing, these revised papers may also be published
in the formal proceedings. Authors should consult Springer's authors'
guidelines and use their proceedings templates for the preparation of
their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in
their papers.

* Best paper awards *

Thanks to Springer's sponsorship, two awards (including a 500 EUR prize
each) will be given at LOPSTR 2021. The program committee will select
the winning papers based on relevance, originality and technical quality
but may also take authorship into account (e.g. a student paper).
