The Workshop on Logic, Domains, and Programming Languages is aimed at
computer scientists and mathematicians alike, who share an active
interest in the mathematical foundations of computer science. The
scope of the workshop encompasses all aspects of Programming Language
Semantics ranging from purely theoretical topics to concrete
applications and implementations of semantic methods. Possible
workshop topics are, for example, Lambda Calculi and Functional
Programming, Domain Theory, Denotational and Algebraic Semantics, Type
Theories, Linear Logic, Process Algebras, and Concurrency.

We are pleased to announce that the University of Darmstadt will award
Dana Scott an honorary degree on Wednesday, May 24. Workshop participants 
are most welcome to attend this event which will be held in the
afternoon; a reception on that evening is planned as well. A
subsequent announcement will contain more detailed information. 

The actual workshop will take place at facilities of the Technische
Hochschule Darmstadt in the center of Darmstadt, Germany. Registration
will be on Wednesday, May 24, in the afternoon. Talks will begin the
next morning.

Invited speakers are:

Samson ABRAMSKY, Imperial College, London, United Kingdom.

Olivier DANVY, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Peter O'HEARN, Syracuse University, Syracruse, N.Y., USA.

Frank PFENNING, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA.

Gordon D. PLOTKIN, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Helmut SCHWICHTENBERG, Universit"at M"unchen, Germany.

Dana S. SCOTT, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA.

Bent THOMSEN, European Computer-Industry Research Center, M"unchen, Germany. 

Additionally, we have 25-40 slots for presentations of ongoing work
which will be confined to 25 minutes. If you are interested in signing
up for a slot, please send a title and an abstract of your intended
presentation to ldpl95@mathematik.th-darmstadt.de by JANUARY 15,

We plan to group talks with similar topics into the same
sessions. Slots will be filled on a ``first come, first served''
basis. Each request will be answered by FEBRUARY 15, 1995, the


The proceedings of the workshop will be published as a special issue
of the journal `Mathematical Structures in Computer Science'. All
workshop participants may submit papers after the workshop will have 
taken place. Papers will be reviewed according to the usual journal
standards. The deadline of submission will be fixed at the meeting.

Darmstadt is only about 20km south of Frankfurt International Airport;
the HEAG AIRLINER is a shuttle service operating between this airport
and the center of Darmstadt. Darmstadt has a major railway station
with frequent connections to all of Europe.

There will be no workshop fee; participants will only be asked for a
contribution to cover expenses for coffee breaks, reception, etc.

You are cordially invited to pre-register for this workshop. In that
case, or if you need further information, please send all
correspondence to the postal address or the e-mail address
below. Having pre-registered, you will receive an accommodation form
by electronic or regular mail. Workshop participants will stay in
hotels in Darmstadt. Please complete this form and return it right
away; hotels in Darmstadt are often heavily booked during conventions
held in nearby Frankfurt.
