CfP: Workshop "Domains X", 5-7 Sep 2011, Swansea

http://www.cs.swan.ac.uk/domains2011/

W o r k s h o p A n n o u n c e m e n t, D O M A I N S X Swansea University, Wales

INTRODUCTION

    The Workshop on Domains is aimed at computer scientists and
     mathematicians alike who share an interest in the mathematical
     foundations of computation. The workshop will focus on
     domains, their applications and related topics.  Previous meetings were
     held in Darmstadt (94,99,04), Braunschweig (96), Munich (97),
     Siegen (98), Birmingham (02), Novosibirsk (07) and Brighton (08).

     Besides its traditional topics Domains X will have the special themes
     'Modelling of Computational Effects' and 'Modelling of Discrete and
     Continuous Data.'


FORMAT

    The emphasis is on the exchange of ideas between participants similar
     in style to Dagstuhl seminars.  In particular, talks on subjects
     presented at other conferences and workshops are acceptable.

INVITED SPEAKERS (confirmed)

     Lars Birkedal        University of Copenhagen (Denmark)
     Nick Benton          Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK)
     Margarita Korovina   University of Manchester (UK)
     Dag Normann          University of Oslo (Norway)
     John Power           University of Bath (UK)
     Matija Pretnar       University of Ljubljana (Slovenia)
     Thomas Streicher     University of Darmstadt (Germany)
     Jeff Zucker          McMaster University (Canada)

SCOPE

     Domain theory has had applications to programming language
     semantics and logics (lambda-calculus, PCF, LCF), recursion theory
     (Kleene-Kreisel countable functionals), general topology
     (injective spaces, function spaces, locally compact spaces, Stone
     duality), topological algebra (compact Hausdorff semilattices) and
     analysis (measure, integration, dynamical systems). Moreover,
     these applications are related - for example, Stone duality gives
     rise to a logic of observable properties of computational
     processes.

     As such, domain theory is highly interdisciplinary. Topics of
     interaction with domain theory for this workshop include, but are
     not limited to:

       program semantics
       program logics
       probabilistic computation
       exact computation over the real numbers
       lambda calculus
       games
       models of sequential computation
       constructive mathematics
       recursion theory
       realizability
       real analysis and computability
       topology, metric spaces and domains
       locale theory
       category theory
       topos theory
       type theory


SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS

     Please submit a one-page abstract via Easychair

            https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=domainsx2011

     Shortly after an abstract is submitted (usually two or three weeks),
     the authors will be notified by the programme committee. The
     criterion for acceptance is relevance to the meeting. In
     particular, talks on subjects presented at other conferences and
     workshops are acceptable.

DEADLINE

     Abstracts will be dealt with on a first-come/first-served basis.
     We ask potential speakers to express the intention to give
     a talk by the end of June.

REGISTRATION

     Further details about the local arrangements will be provided soon.

VENUE AND ACCOMMODATION

    The Domains X workshop will take place at Swansea University,
    Department of Computer Science, Robert Recorde Room (2nd floor,
    Faraday Building). Accommodation will be on Campus in House Oxwich.
    Further details will be given later.

     a journal. There will be a call for papers after the workshop.
     The papers will be refereed according to normal publication standards.
