Functional and Logic Programming
This volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth Fuji International Sym- sium on Functional and Logic Programming (FLOPS 2002), held in Aizu, Japan, September 15–17, 2002, hosted by the University of Aizu, and colocated with the First Asian Symposium on Partial Evaluation Semantics-Based Program Manipulation (ASIA-PEPM 2002), which was held on September 12–14. FLOPS is a forum for research on all issues concerning functional progr- ming and logic programming. In particular, it aims to stimulate the cro- fertilization as well as the integration of the two paradigms. The previous FLOPS meetings took place in Fuji-Susono (1995), Shonan (1996), Kyoto (1998), Tsukuba (1999), and Tokyo (2001). The proceedings of FLOPS ’99 and FLOPS 2001 were published by Springer-Verlag as Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Vols. 1722 and 2024, respectively. There were 27 submissions, and these came from Australia (1), Brazil (1), 1 China (1), Denmark (2), Germany (1 ), Italy (1), Japan (6), Korea (1), Por- 2 2 1 1 tugal (2), Russia ( ), Spain (6), Sweden (1), the UK (2 ), and the USA ( ).
