Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers
------------------------------------------------------------------------
CATEGORY THEORY AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
CTCS-6
7th-11th August 1995
University of Cambridge, UK.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The sixth of the biennial conferences on Category Theory and Computer Science
is to be held in Cambridge in 1995, in conjunction with the third Cambridge
Summer Meeting in Category Theory.
The purpose of the conference series is the advancement of the foundations
of computing using the tools of category theory, algebra, geometry and logic.
Whilst the emphasis is upon applications of category theory, it is recognised
that the area is highly interdisciplinary and the organising committee welcomes
submissions in related areas. Topics central to the conference include:
Models of computation Program logics and specification
Type theory and its semantics Domain theory
Linear logic and its applications Categorical programming
Submissions purely on category theory are also acceptable as long as the
applicability to computing is evident.
Previous meetings have been held in Guildford (Surrey), Edinburgh,
Manchester, Paris and Amsterdam.
It is anticipated that the proceedings will be published by Springer in the
LNCS series.
