6th Workshop Domains, Birmingham, September 2002
Call for abstracts
Domains VI
Birmingham, 16-19 September 2002.
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), Braunschweig (96), Munich (97) and Siegen (98). The
emphasis is on the exchange of ideas between participants similar in
style to Dagstuhl seminars.

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
topology
locale theory
metric spaces
category theory
topos theory
type theory
SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS
One-page abstracts should be submitted to
domainsvi@cs.bham.ac.uk
Shortly after an abstract is submitted (usually one or two weeks),
the authors will be notified by the programme committee. Abstracts
will be dealt with on a first-come/first-served basis.
DEADLINE
30 April 2002
ACCOMODATION
We meeting will take place at "The Manor House" halls of residence
of the University of Birmingham (http://www.bham.ac.uk/conferences/#Manor).
More details will be provided at a later date.

PUBLICATION
We plan to publish proceedings of the workshop in lecture notes
series. There will be a call for papers after the workshop takes
place. The papers will be refereed according to normal publication
standards.
