CTCS'02 Final CFP and Schedule
CATEGORY THEORY AND COMPUTER SCIENCE (CTCS'02)
AUGUST 15-17, 2002
GRADUATE STUDENT PRECONFERENCE
AUGUST 12-14, 2002
University of Ottawa
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Final Call for Participation & Schedule
CTCS'02 is the 9th Conference on Category Theory and Computer
Science. The purpose of the conference series is the advancement of
the foundations of computing using the tools of category theory. The
emphasis is upon applications of category theory, but it is recognized
that the area is highly interdisciplinary.
Typical topics of interest include, but are not limited to,
category-theoretic aspects of the following:
coalgebras and computing
concurrent and distributed systems
declarative programming and term rewriting
domain theory and topology
foundations of computer security
modal and temporal logics
models of computation
program logics, data refinement, and specification
programming language semantics
Previous meetings have been held in Guildford (Surrey), Edinburgh
(twice), Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam, Cambridge, and S. Margherita
Ligure (Genova). This is the first time CTCS will be held in North
The proceedings of the conference will be published as a special issue
of ENTCS (Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science). Paper
copies of the proceedings will be available to participants at the
The conference will have 4 invited speakers:
Eric Goubault (CEA/Saclay)
Guy McCusker (Sussex)
Peter Selinger (Ottawa)
Paul Syverson (Naval Research Laboratory)
GRADUATE STUDENT PRECONFERENCE
One new feature that CTCS will have this year is a "preconference"
from August 12-14. This is supported in part by a grant from CRM, the
Centre de Recherches Mathematiques (Univ. of Montreal). The goal is to
prepare students for CTCS, through mini-courses in the basic
areas underlying the fields of the conference. The schedule is below.
Rick Blute, Chair (Ottawa)
Robin Cockett (Calgary)
Thierry Coquand (Chalmers)
Andrea Corradini (Pisa)
Thomas Ehrhard (Luminy)
Ryu Hasegawa (Tokyo)
Martin Hofmann (Munich)
