NWPT'06 in Reykjavík

Yesterday Anna and I sent the preliminary announcement for the Nordic Workshop on Programming Theory 2006 that we'll organize at Reykjavík University to several mailing lists. Most likely if you are reading this post, you will receive one or more of our announcements. Still I cannot resist advertising the event using this medium.

The NWPT'06 workshop will take place in the period 18-20 October. This is the 18th installment of this event, which is a forum bringing together programming theorists from the Nordic and Baltic countries (but also elsewhere), and the first time that the workshop will be held in Iceland.

The scope for the workshop mentions several topics of interest to concurrency theorists, and the list of invited speakers includes Gerd Behrmann, Matthew Hennessy, Hanne Riis Nielson, and David Sands.

If you wish to give a talk at the workshop, all you have to do is to submit an abstract of 1-3 pages (ps or pdf, printable on A4 paper) to nwpt06(at)ru(dot)is by the 19th September 2006. Submission of work submitted for formal publication elsewhere and work in progress is permitted.

The abstracts of the accepted contributions will be available at the workshop. After the workshop, selected papers will be published in a special issue of Nordic Journal of Computing.

Why don't you use this opportunity to visit Iceland?
