The Third International Valentin Turchin Workshop on Metacomputation (META 2012)
The Third International Valentin Turchin Workshop on Metacomputation (META 2012) aims to bring together researchers working in the areas of program analysis and program manipulation based on metacomputation, in particular, supercompilation, partial evaluation, distillation, mixed computation, generalized partial computation, slicing, verification, and cross-fertilization with other modern research and development directions.
The workshop is devoted to the memory of Valentin Turchin (1931-2010).
The workshop will be held in July 5-9, 2012, in an ancient Russian city Pereslavl-Zalessky, on the bank of Pleschcheevo lake, in Ailamazyan Program Systems Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Pereslavl-Zalessky belongs to the Golden Ring of the historical sites of Russia.
The previous workshops in this series were META 2008 (http://meta2008.pereslavl.ru) and META 2010 (http://meta2010.pereslavl.ru).
TOPICS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to:
* Generalized partial computation
* Mixed computation
* Partial evaluation
* Program inversion
* Program slicing
* Program verification techniques including theorem proving and testing
* Techniques that treat programs/models as data objects
* Tool descriptions, case studies, tutorials, surveys and problem statements on these topics
Working language of the workshop is English.
