Foundational Methods in Computer Science 2017

Ottawa, June 8-11 2017


Description: Foundational Methods in Computer Science is an annual workshop that brings together researchers in theoretical computer science and category theory. Past workshops have had discussions on areas such as quantum programming languages, restriction categories, database design, and the differential and resource logics. Past meetings have been held in Mount Allison, Dalhousie, Ottawa, Hamilton, Spokane, Vancouver, Kananaskis and Portland. The 2017 workshop is informal and interdisciplinary. This will be a four day meeting with tutorials aimed at students, with research talks as well as talks by students on their thesis work in progress.

Call for Participation: anyone interested in attending or contributing a talk is kindly requested to notify the organizers with a title and short abstract. If you wish to speak, please let us know by May 15th. We particularly encourage graduate students to attend FMCS and to present their work. Some limited funding toward accommodation expenses is available to support graduate students who wish to attend FMCS. To apply for this funding you should contact Richard Blute.
