PSSL 78 - Second announcement

Second Announcement

Dear friends and colleagues,

The 78th meeting of the PSSL will be held in Strasbourg
over the weekend of 15-16 February 2003.
As usual, we welcome talks on sheaves, category theory, logic
and related areas such as applications in (theoretical)
computer science. As the meeting is informal in nature talks
on work in progress are also welcome. 

Those wishing to attend the meeting are kindly asked to
complete and return the registration form below.


The meeting will be held at the Salle de Conférences of the

Institut de Recherche Mathématique Avancée
Unité Mixte de Recherche 7501 de l'Université Louis Pasteur et du CNRS
7 rue René-Descartes
67084 Strasbourg


Strasbourg is the capital of Europe, and is located in the
northeastern part of France, close to the French-German border.
Strasbourg Airport has direct flights to and from a number of
main European airports, and a bus-tram connection to the city
centre. Strasbourg can also be reached through Basel-Mulhouse
airport (train connection) and Frankfurt airport (Lufthansa
bus connection).
Because of its central location, there are also good train
connections to and from Strasbourg, for example from Germany,
Belgium and Italy.

The IRMA can be reached from the station and from the city
centre by taking tram line C direction "Esplanade" and getting
off at the stop "Universités". It is then a short walk along
rue Edmond Labbé, the building being on your left.
