After having joined forces with CMCS for CALCO'07 in Bergen, WADT takes place in 2008 as an individual workshop and in its traditional format.

Aims and Scope

The algebraic approach to system specification encompasses many aspects of the formal design of software systems. Originally born as formal method for reasoning about abstract data types, it now covers new specification frameworks and programming paradigms (such as object-oriented, aspect-oriented, agent-oriented, logic and higher-order functional programming) as well as a wide range of application areas (including information systems, concurrent, distributed and mobile systems).

The workshop will provide an opportunity to present recent and ongoing work, to meet colleagues, and to discuss new ideas and future trends.

Topics of interest

Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:

Workshop Format and Location

The workshop will take place over four days (Friday to Monday) at Hotel Santa Croce in Fossabanda, a former monastery in the center of Pisa. It will include presentations selected on the basis of submitted abstracts as well as three invited talks.


The scientific programme of the workshop will include presentations of recent results and ongoing research. The presentations will be selected by the Steering Committee on the basis of submitted abstracts according to originality, significance, and general interest.
The abstracts must be up to two pages long including references, and should be formatted preferably using the standard Springer-Verlag LNCS style. If a longer version of the contribution is available, it can be made accessible on the web and referenced in the abstract.
The abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system, at URL http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=WADT2008. The final versions of the selected abstracts will be included in a hand-out for the workshop participants.
After the workshop, selected authors will be invited to submit full papers for the refereed proceedings, which will be published as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Springer Verlag), edited by Andrea Corradini and Ugo Montanari.
