The Fifteenth International Workshop on Logic and Computational 
Complexity and Workshop in Honor of Neil Immerman's 60th Birthday 
(LCC 2014/ImmermanFest, http://www.cs.swansea.ac.uk/lcc2014/) 
will be held in Vienna, Austria, on July 12-13, 2014, as an 
affiliated meeting of the Vienna Summer of Logic.  The LCC 
2014/ImmermanFest program will consist of a first day (July 12th) 
of talks which include both invited lectures and contributed 
talks selected by the program committee (based on submitted 
abstracts), and a second day (July 13th) devoted entirely to 
invited talks in celebration of Neil Immerman's 60th birthday.

LCC meetings are aimed at the foundational interconnections 
between logic and computational complexity, as present in, for 
example: finite model theory and descriptive complexity; implicit 
computational complexity (descriptive and type-theoretic 
methods); deductive formalisms as they relate to complexity (e.g. 
ramification, weak comprehension, bounded arithmetic, linear 
logic and resource logics); logic and complexity-theoretic 
aspects of databases; complexity-mindful program verification and 
synthesis; computational complexity at higher type; and proof 

Neil Immerman has made numerous fundamental and inspiring 
contributions to the connections between logic and complexity. 
In particular, he has been one of the leading figures in the 
development of descriptive complexity, which has elucidated 
intimate and beautiful connections between complexity theory and 
finite model theory.  This year, day two of LCC 2014 will honor 
Neil's 60th birthday with a series of invited lectures by some of 
the leading researchers working in areas that have been 
influenced by Neil's work.

The invited speakers on day one of LCC 2014 are:

    * Sam Buss (University of California, San Diego)
    * Georg Moser (University of Innsbruck)

The invited speakers for ImmermanFest (day two) are:

    * Eric Allender (Rutgers)
    * Anuj Dawar (University of Cambridge)
    * Phokion Kolaitis (University of California, Santa Cruz)
    * Benjamin Rossman (National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo)
    * Mooly Sagiv (Tel Aviv University)
    * Nicole Schweikardt (Goethe University Frankfurt am Main)

There will be no published proceedings for LCC 2014, and we 
welcome submissions of abstracts based on work submitted or 
published elsewhere, provided that all pertinent information is 
disclosed at submission time. Submissions must be in English and 
in the form of an abstract of about 3-4 pages.  All submissions 
should be submitted through Easychair at: 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lcc2014 by the 
deadline.  For additional information see 
http://www.cs.swansea.ac.uk/lcc/ or email lcc2014 at easychair.org


We have secured funding from various sources for student/postdoc
participation at the LCC2014 / ImmermanFest Meeting.

NSF Grants:
A large number of student/postdoc grants funded by the National 
Science Foundation are available. These grants are intended for 
US-based PhD students and postdocs working in an area related to 
the LCC2014 / ImmermanFest Meeting. They can cover 
registration-only, registration and accommodation, or 
registration, accommodation and travel (up to a maximal amount of 
$2,000). For information on eligibility and selection criteria, 
and the procedure for applying for this funding, visit

DLMPS Grants:
A small number of student/postdoc grants, funded by the Division 
of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science, are also 
available. These grants are intended for PhD students and 
postdocs working in an area related to the LCC2014 / ImmermanFest 
Meeting.  They will cover the registration fee for this workshop.
