CATEGORY THEORY AND COMPUTER SCIENCE (CTCS'97)
4-6 SEPTEMBER 1997, S. MARGHERITA LIGURE (GENOA), ITALY
PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
The seventh biennial conference on Category Theory and Computer
Science is to be held in Santa Margherita Ligure in 1997. Previous
meetings have been held in Guildford, Edinburgh, Manchester, Paris,
Amsterdam and Cambridge.
SCOPE. 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 recognized that the area is highly
interdisciplinary and the organizing 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. It is anticipated that the
proceedings will be published in the LNCS series.
