                   CHANGED SUBMISSION PROCEDURE (see below)

CTCS '99 is the 8th 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. While
the emphasis is upon applications of category theory, it is recognized
that the area is highly interdisciplinary.

Topics of interest
- - ------------------
include but are not limited to category-theoretic
aspects of the following:

  concurrent and distributed systems  
  constructive mathematics  
  declarative programming and term rewriting 
  domain theory and topology 
  linear logic 
  models of computation 
  program logics, data refinement, and specification 
  programming language semantics 
  type theory

Previous meetings have been held in Guildford (Surrey), Edinburgh,
Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam, Cambridge, and S. Margherita Ligure
