CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Domain X, 5-7 Sep 2011, WALES

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

Swansea University, Wales, UK

    Deadline for abstracts of short talks:  25 July 2011
         Deadline for Student Grants:            25 July 2011
         Registration Deadline:                  29 July 2011


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 Computational Effects' and
     'Modelling Continuous Data.'

     The emphasis at Domains workshops 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.

     Submission of abstracts for short talks will be considered
     until July 25. Please submit a one-page abstract via Easychair

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
