3rd Joint Workshop Linearity & TLLA

Seventh International Workshop on Linearity
Sixth International Workshop on Trends in Linear Logic and Applications

Haifa, Israel, 31 July - 1 August 2022
Affiliated with FSCD 2022 (FLoC 2022)


Linearity has been a key feature in several lines of research in both
theoretical and practical approaches to computer science. On the theoretical
side there is much work stemming from linear logic dealing with proof
technology, complexity classes, and more recently quantum computation. On the
practical side, there is work on program analysis, expressive operational
semantics for programming languages, linear programming languages, program
transformation, update analysis and efficient implementation techniques.

Linear logic is not only a theoretical tool to analyse the use of resources in
logic and computation. It is also a corpus of tools, approaches, and
methodologies (proof nets, exponential decomposition, geometry of interaction,
coherent spaces, relational models, etc.) that were originally developed for
the study of linear logic's syntax and semantics and are nowadays applied in
several other fields.

The aim of this Joint Linearity and TLLA workshop is to bring together
researchers who are currently working on linear logic and related fields, to
foster their interaction and provide a forum for presenting new ideas and work
in progress. We also hope to enable newcomers to learn about current activities
in this area. New results that make central use of linearity, ranging from
foundational work to applications in any field, are welcome. Also welcome are
more exploratory presentations, which may examine open questions and raise
fundamental concerns about existing theories and practices.

Topics of interest include:
- theory of programming languages
- type systems
- verification
- models of computation:
  + categorical models
  + quantum and probabilistic models
  + biological and chemical models
- games and languages
- proof theory
- parallelism and concurrency
- linear logic methods in computer science
- implicit computational complexity
- sub-linear logics
- interaction-based systems
- categories and algebra
- connections with combinatorics
- functional analysis and operator algebras
- logic and philosophy
- linguistics


* Submission deadline: 20th May 2022
* Author notification: 17th June 2022
* Contribution for Informal Proceedings: 1st July 2022
* Workshop date: 31st July - 1st August 2022


Authors are invited to submit:
* an extended abstract (8 pages max) describing original ideas and results
  not published nor submitted elsewhere,
* or a 5-page abstract presenting relevant work that has been or will be
  published elsewhere,
* or a 2-page description of work in progress.

Preliminary proceedings will be available at the workshop.
Papers should be written in English, and submitted in PDF format using the
EPTCS style files. Submission is through the Easychair website:


After the workshop, authors of  extended abstracts will be invited to submit
a longer version of their work (typically a 15-pages paper) for publication
in EPTCS (TBC). These submissions will undergo a second round of refereeing.
