PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT
ADVANCED SCHOOL ON TYPED LAMBDA CALCULUS AND FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING
September 19 - September 30, 1994
CISM, Palazzo del Torso,
Piazza Garibaldi, 18 - UDINE Udine (ITALY)
The Advanced School is organized under the auspices of the Italian
Chapter of EATCS (European Association for Theoretical Computer
Science) and UNESCO. It is supported also by the University of Udine
and the CNR.
Formal Methods for specifying, modularizing, verifying, and reusing
large programs and systems, as well as principled languages, which
allow to apply rapidly such methods, are greatly needed in Computer
Science.
Typed Lambda Calculus has been recently understood as a central node
in a conceptual network which links various fields of Logic to
Computer Science. It has made possible to transfer fruitfully ideas
and techniques from Category Theory, Proof Theory, Type Theory to
Computer Science. Based on formally solid and conceptually disciplined
logical grounds, Typed Lambda Calculus allows for the development of a
mathematically clear style of programming as well as for the design of
flexible logical tools and methods for Computer Science.
In recent years, Typed Lambda Calculus has been impressively used also
as a metalanguage for defining formal systems for reasoning about
Programs and as a logical framework for designing interactive proof
assistants} for computer aided formal reasoning.
The School will offer 5 series of (approx.8-10) introductory and
advanced lectures on the connections between Typed Lambda Calculus and
Category Theory, Proof Theory, and Type Theory, and on the, more
recent, applications of Typed Lambda Calculus, such as the design of
Typed Functional Languages, General Proof Assistants, and Program
Logics.

The School is intended primarily for young researchers and PhD
students in Computer Science and Mathematics. During the School,
participants will be able to attend also informal talks and
discussions of open problems. PhD students may ask to sit for an
examination at the School. It will consist of a Seminar on a topic
agreed upon by the Directors and the Speakers. There will be
demonstrations, and participants will have the opportunity to use a
computer environment.
To apply, participants should fill the form (to be publicized shortly)
and return it together with a recommandation letter to:
