The Implicit Complexity Workshop (ICC'02) will be held on 20-21 July 2002 in Copenhagen as part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLOC'02).


Implicit Computational Complexity concerns the theory and application of logic-based, machine-independent approaches to computational complexity. These approaches have opened new ways of incorporating aspects of computational complexity into areas such as formal methods in software development, programming language design, and database theory.

Topics of interest include:


The program will consist of invited talks, sessions of contributed papers, and software demonstrations.

Paper Submission

The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Survey papers that present some unified perspectives are welcome. One author of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the meeting. Proposed contributions should be submitted as extended abstracts, no more than 10 pages long in 11-point font. It must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and an explanation of their significance and relevance to the workshop. Detailed proofs, examples, programs, and other technical information may be included in the form of appendices.

All submissions must be done electronically unless the authors have limited access to email. Please email your submission to, with the phrase ``ICC submission'' as the message subject. Also email (to separate a cover letter, stating the paper's title, one corresponding author with complete contact information (address, email, phone, fax), and names and affiliation of other authors, if any. The organizers expect to have proceedings of the workshop published after the meeting
