                   Fixed Points in Computer Science
		September 8, 2001, Florence, Italy

                   A Satellite Workshop to PLI'2001
Principles, Logics and Implementations of High-Level Programming Languages
                 September 3-7, 2001, Florence, Italy

Fixed points play a fundamental role in several areas of computer
  science and logic by justifying induction and recursive definitions.
  The construction and properties of fixed points have been investigated
  in many different frameworks. The aim of the workshop is to provide a
  forum for researchers to present their results to those members of the
  computer science and logic communities who study or apply the
  fixed point operation in the different fields and formalisms.
  Previous workshops where held in 1998 in Brno and in 2000 in Paris.

 Construction and reasoning about properties
 of fixed points, categorical, metric and ordered fixed point
 models, continuous algebras, relation algebras,
 fixed points in process algebras and process calculi,
 regular algebras of finitary and infinitary languages,
 formal power series, tree automata and tree languages,
 infinite trees, the mu-calculus and other programming logics,
 fixed points in relation to dataflow and circuits,
 fixed points and the lambda calculus, fixed points in logic
 programming and data bases.
