## CfP special issue of JLAP on Domains, deadline: 29 Feb 2012

********************************************
Special Issue on
Domain Theory
********************************************
Open Call for Papers
--------------------
Following the successful Domains X conference, 5-7 September, 2011,
Swansea, Wales, there will be a special issue in Journal of Logic and
Algebraic Programming (JLAP). This is an open call, and not restricted
to contributions presented at the conference.
The topics cover a broad range related to Domain Theory and its
applications, see below. For further information on the Domains X
conference see:

Scientific scope
----------------
Domain theory has had applications to programming language semantics
and logics (lambda-calculus, PCF, LCF), recursion theory
(Kleene-Kreisel countable functionals), general topology (injective
spaces, function spaces, locally compact spaces, Stone duality),
topological algebra (compact Hausdorff semilattices) and analysis
(measure, integration, dynamical systems). Moreover, these
applications are related - for example, Stone duality gives rise to a
logic of observable properties of computational processes. As such,
domain theory is highly interdisciplinary. Topics of interaction with
domain theory include:
- program semantics
- program logics
- probabilistic computation
- exact computation over the real numbers
- lambda calculus
- games
- models of sequential computation
- constructive mathematics
- recursion theory
- realizability
- real analysis and computability
- topology, metric spaces and domains
- locale theory
- category theory
- topos theory
- type theory
The conference had two special themes:
- modelling computational effects
- modelling continuous data
Papers on these themes are particularly welcome.
