There is a remarkable divide in the field of logic in Computer Science, between two distinct strands: one focusing on semantics and compositionality (“Structure”), the other on expressiveness and complexity (“Power”). It is remarkable because these two fundamental aspects of our field are studied using almost disjoint technical languages and methods, by almost disjoint research communities. We believe that bridging this divide is a major issue in Computer Science, and may hold the key to fundamental advances in the field. The aim of the Structure meets Power workshop is to cultivate interaction between researchers who are interested in combining ideas from these two strands.

This workshop is one of the ICALP 2022 affiliated workshops.

Previous year's workshop website can be found here.

Invited speakers


Those wishing to speak at the workshop are invited to submit an Extended Abstract of up to three pages (including references) via the EasyChair conference system, describing the content of the contributed presentation.

Submissions should only have a single author -- the speaker. The co-authors are required to be clearly indicated in the abstract and later also in the slides.

We encourage talks of all levels of progress, including novel contributions, already published results, work in progress, as well as survey-type contributions. However, original contributions might be considered for a subsequent special issue, consisting of journal versions of selected extended abstracts.

Depending on the number of submissions, contributed talks will be 20-30 minutes long.


There will be two types of participation, online and on-site participation. On-site participation costs 50 euros and includes 2 coffee breaks and lunch. Online registration is free of charge.

Those who wish to attend in person need to register on ICALP registration page: On-site participation registration form (for more information about this and also e.g. the support scheme, go to ICALP website)

For online participation, please fill in Online participation registration form. Those who register will then receive a Zoom link closer to the date.
