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.

    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
     models of sequential computation
     constructive mathematics
     recursion theory
     real analysis
     locale theory
     metric spaces
     category theory
     topos theory
     type theory


    One-page abstracts should be submitted to


    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.

    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
