Announcement: Summer school on Trends In Concurrency TiC 2008

The Second International Summer School on
                     Trends in Concurrency
                          TiC 2008

                   Prague, Czech Republic

  Concurrency is a pervasive and essential characteristic of modern
  computer systems. Whether it is the design of new hyper-threading
  techniques in computer architectures, specification of non-blocking
  data structures and algorithms, implementation of scalable computer
  farms for handling massive data sets, or the design of a robust
  software architecture for distributed business processes, a deep
  understanding of mechanisms and foundations for expressing and
  controlling concurrency is required.  Recent architectural advances
  in multi-core and many-core architectures have made this an essential
  topic for any serious student of computer science.

  This summer school will bring together outstanding researchers from
  academia and industry to discuss current research and future trends
  in concurrent systems design and implementation.  All instructors
  have had significant impact in the area of concurrency, and play
  an active role in substantial ongoing research and commercial

  The speakers include the following researchers.

     - Byron Cook, Microsoft Research
     - Neal Glew, intel Research
     - Jan-willem Maessen, Sun Laboratories.
     - Martin Odersky, EPFL.
     - Vivek Sarkar, Rice University.
     - Peter Sewell, Cambridge University.
