Workshop on Programming Logics
in memory of Harald Ganzinger
Saarbrücken, June 3 and 4, 2005


The Max-Planck Institute for Informatics and the Department of
Computer Science at Saarland University will organize a workshop on
Programming Logics to commemorate the life and scientific achievements
of Harald Ganzinger on the first anniversary of his sad and untimely
death. The programme will include an official commemoration of Harald
Ganzinger, and a joint workshop dinner in the building of MPI.

Colleagues and friends close to Harald will give talks covering the
variety of research areas Harald has worked in.  A preliminary
programme is attached below.

We are collecting contributions for a Springer LNCS volume in memoriam
of Harald Ganzinger; every workshop participant will receive the

In order to facilitate the planning of the meals and the workshop
dinner, participants are asked to register even if they participate
only in parts of the event.
