This volume contains a selection of papers presented at LFMTP 21, the 16th International Workshop on Logical Frameworks and Meta-Languages: Theory and Practice (LFMTP), held on July 16, 2021 using the Zoom video conferencing tool due to COVID restrictions. The workshop was affiliated with CADE-28.
Logical frameworks and meta-languages form a common substrate for representing, implementing and reasoning about a wide variety of deductive systems of interest in logic and computer science. Their design, implementation and their use in reasoning tasks, ranging from the correctness of software to the properties of formal systems, have been the focus of considerable research over the last two decades. This workshop will bring together designers, implementors and practitioners to discuss various aspects impinging on the structure and utility of logical frameworks, including the treatment of variable binding, inductive and co-inductive reasoning techniques and the expressiveness and lucidity of the reasoning process.
We received 11 submissions in total, which were reviewed by 3 program committee members. Out of those, 3 were selected as work in progress reports for presentation and 6 were selected for presentation and publication. Each submission selected for publication was reviewed again by 3 program committee members and included in these proceedings.
In addition to the submission presentations, the program included 2 invited talks by Giselle Reis (CMU, Qatar) "Facilitating Meta-Theory Reasoning" and Matthieu Sozeau (Inria, France) "The MetaCoq Project".
We want to thank the members of the Program Committee for their efforts in providing timely reviews and for the useful suggestions and participation on the decisions. Moreover, we want to thank the authors and the invited speakers, since their contributions and presentations at the meeting stimulated interesting discussions with the attendees, making the event a success. We are also very grateful to the organization of CADE-28 for providing the infrastructure and coordination with other events.
