Workshop on Concurrency and Mobility
University of Ottawa, June 19-20, 2003

Organizers: Glynn Winskel and Phil Scott

This workshop aims to bring together researchers at the frontiers of research in concurrent and mobile processes, their semantics, extensions and applications. Likely topics are: algebraic treatments of name generation and operational semantics, domain theory for concurrency, causal/independence models, types for concurrent languages, bisimulation for ambients, process languages and their applications in for example security and biology.


So far the list of participants includes:

V. Danos (Paris)
M. Fiore (Cambridge)
A. Jeffrey (DePaul)
M. Nygaard (BRICS)
V. Sassone (Sussex)
P. Sobocinski (BRICS)
