Certified Programs and Proofs (CPP) is an international conference on
practical and theoretical topics in all areas that consider
certification as an essential paradigm for their work. Certification
here means formal, mechanized verification of some sort, preferably
with the production of independently checkable certificates.
CPP spans areas of computer science, mathematics, logics, and education.

CPP 2020 will be held on 20-21 January 2020 in New Orleans, Louisiana,
United States and will be co-located with POPL 2020. CPP 2020 is
sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, in cooperation with ACM SIGLOG.

### Topics of Interest

We welcome submissions in research areas related to formal
certification of programs and proofs. The following is a
non-exhaustive list of topics of interests to CPP:

   - certified or certifying programming, compilation, linking, OS
     kernels, runtime systems, and security monitors;
   - certified mathematical libraries and mathematical theorems;
   - proof assistants (e.g, ACL2, Agda, Coq, Dafny, F*, HOL,
     HOL-Light, Idris, Isabelle, Lean, Mizar, Nuprl, PVS, etc)
   - new languages and tools for certified programming;
   - program analysis, program verification, and program synthesis;
   - program logics, type systems, and semantics for certified code;
   - logics for certifying concurrent and distributed systems;
   - mechanized metatheory, formalized programming language semantics,
     and logical frameworks;
   - higher-order logics, dependent type theory, proof theory,
     logical systems, separation logics, and logics for security;
   - verification of correctness and security properties;
   - formally verified blockchains and smart contracts;
   - certificates for decision procedures, including linear algebra,
     polynomial systems, SAT, SMT, and unification in algebras of interest;
   - certificates for semi-decision procedures, including equality,
     first-order logic, and higher-order unification;
   - certificates for program termination;
   - formal models of computation;
   - mechanized (un)decidability and computational complexity proofs;
   - user interfaces for proof assistants and theorem provers
   - teaching mathematics and computer science with proof assistants.
