This conference is the seventh in a series intended to bring together 
computer scientists and mathematicians for discussion of research problems, 
results and directions in programming language semantics. 
A major goal of the series is to provide a forum for researchers in all 
areas surrounding semantics to report on their research progress, 
and to improve communication and interactions between mathematicians and 
computer scientists who work in these areas. 
The conference covers a broad range of topics related to programming language
semantics, including:

	Order-theoretic, topological and categorical approaches
	Applications to programming language design and implementation
	Program analysis and verification
	Theory of concurrency
	Types and polymorphism
