10th CONFERENCE ON
CATEGORY THEORY AND COMPUTER SCIENCE (CTCS'04)
AUGUST 1214, 2004
AND
SUMMER SCHOOL
AUGUST 911, 2004
IT University of Copenhagen (ITU)
Copenhagen, Denmark
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
CTCS'04 is the 10th 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,
categorytheoretic aspects of the following:
coalgebras and computing
concurrent and distributed systems
constructive mathematics
declarative programming and term rewriting
domain theory and topology
foundations of computer security
linear logic
modal and temporal logics
models of computation
program logics, data refinement, and specification
programming language semantics
type theory
Previous meetings have been held in Guildford (Surrey), Edinburgh (twice),
Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam, Cambridge, S. Margherita Ligure (Genova), and
Ottawa.
The proceedings of the conference will be published as a special issue
of ENTCS (Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science).
Invited Speakers:
Francois Bergeron
Martin Hyland
Robin Milner
Andrew Pitts
Thomas Streicher
SUMMER SCHOOL
Inspired by the success of the graduate student preconference of CTCS'02 in
Ottawa, the CTCS of this year will have a similar event: A summer school
from August 911. The goal is to prepare students  both graduate and
undergraduate, with basic knowledge of category theory  for CTCS, through
minicourses in the basic areas underlying some of the fields of the
conference. We anticipate offering courses in among others the following
areas:
Coalgebras
Game Semantics
Categorical Models for Concurrency
Operational Semantics in Concurrency
