Advances In Type Systems For Computing

First Call for Registration and Contributed Talks

The workshop on Advances In Type Systems For Computing is being held as part of a six-month research programme on Semantics of Computation at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, a new international research centre in Cambridge UK. The workshop programme will consist of a combination of invited and contributed talks presenting recent developments in the use of typing in computing, with particular emphasis on the following three related areas:

* extensions of the ML type system *

* types in object-oriented programming *

* type theories for reactive systems *

Invited speakers will include:

M Abadi (DEC), X Leroy (INRIA), V Saraswat (Xerox), K Bruce (Williams), D MacQueen (AT&T), S Smith (John Hopkins), L Cardelli (DEC), J Palsberg (Aarhus), M Tofte (DIKU), R Harper (CMU), B Pierce (Cambridge), A Yonezawa (Tokyo).

Contributed talks:

The organizers invite offers of contributed talks. These will be selected by the programme committee on the basis of submittedabstracts. In addition to an indication of the results to be presented in the talk and their relevance to the subject of the workshop, the abstract should give the talk title and the speakers's name, address, phone number, fax number and email address (when available). Notification of selection of contributed talks will be made by 1 May, 1995.

Conference location, costs and registration:

The workshop will take place in the Newton Institute's purpose-designed building, in a pleasant area in the west of Cambridge, about one mile from the centre of the City. There will be a registration fee of 150 pounds (includes the cost of lunches, coffee and tea breaks). Accommodation for participants will be available next door to the Newton Institute in the study bedrooms of Girton College's Wolfson Court, at a cost of about 192 pounds for the week (including breakfast and evening meal).

Grants:
