32nd Nordic Workshop on Programming Theory, NWPT '21

Reykjavik, Iceland and online, 4-6 November 2021

Important dates

Submission of abstracts 10 October
Notification 17 October
----------------------------------------------------------------------

NWPT is a series of annual regional-scope workshops on programming
theory, targeted especially at younger researchers. In 2020, the
workshop had been scheduled to take place in Reykjavik, Iceland, but
had to be cancelled (postponed) because of the pandemic.

As the epidemiological situation in Iceland is currently relatively
good, NWPT 2021 is now going ahead at short notice as a hybrid
meeting, the circumstances permitting.  

We hope this will be a nice opportunity especially for our PhD
students and postdocs to attend a real physical workshop and present
their work and to meet their colleagues from elsewhere in the Nordic
countries - after a break of 1.5 years.

  - program construction,
  - tools for program verification and construction,
  - program transformation and refinement,
  - real-time and hybrid systems,
  - models of concurrency and distributed computing,
  - model-based testing,
  - language-based security.
