Welcome to the homepage of 2012 Formosan Summer School on Logic, Language, and Computation (FLOLAC '12).

Aim and Scope

Researchers in Taiwan who are interested in the foundational aspects of computing science have founded a number of research teams and worked together in some joint projects. As in any discipline, a student will have to go through a series of courses to be prepared for further research in this field. Being affiliated to different institutes, however, the researchers often find it difficult to lecture all these courses alone. It is thus desirable to bring together those who share a common interest and give lectures together.

The aim of this summer school is to give a collection of courses that would prepare the students with enough knowledge to carry on research in foundational computing science. The courses on the even years cover advanced topics in programming languages, those on the odd years on model checking and program verification. The theme of this year is “Advanced Programming Languages and Type Systems”.

FLOLAC was held in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.

The summer school consists of 54 hours of lectures and lab/tutor sessions. In addition, there is a 3-hour exam and a 3-hour research seminar. Students who passed the exam will be awarded 3 credits from National Taiwan University.

Date and Venue

From 27th August (Monday) to 7th September (Friday) in National Taiwan University. The exact venue is to be announced.


The summer school is jointly organised by Institute of Information Science, Academia Sinica, Department of Information Management, National Taiwan University. It is an official summer course offered by National Taiwan University.
