*********************************************************************

The symposium is a forum for research on all issues concerning
functional programming and logic programming.  In particular, it aims
to stimulate the cross-fertilization as well as integration of the two
paradigms.  This is the fifth in the series of FLOPS symposia held
every 1.5 years in Japan.

The symposium program will consist of 3 invited talks and 21 technical
research talks.  The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Invited Talks
=============
  Gopalan Nadathur (Univ. of Minnesota, USA)
  "The Metalanguage lambda-Prolog and Its Implementation"

  George C. Necula (Univ. of California, Berkeley, USA)
  "A Scalable Architecture for Proof-Carrying Code"

  Taisuke Sato (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan)
  "Parameterized Logic Programs where Computing Meets Learning"
