Workshop on Emerging Trends in Concurrency Theory

The colloquium Emerging Trends in Concurrency Theory will be held at LIX, École Polytechnique de Paris, during 13-15 of November 2006. The colloquium is organized by Catuscia Palamidessi and Frank D. Valencia, and will be held under the auspices of Working Group 1.8 on Concurrency Theory of IFIP TC1. The guest of honor will be Turing Award winner Robin Milner, who was awarded one of the prestigious Blaise Pascal International research chairs to visit LIX for the 2006-2007 academic year.

The event will have well over 10o participants, and has a programme of talks to whet anybody's appetite. I am really sorry to have to miss this event, which clashes with the exams for our courses in Reykjavík---a rather mundane reason for having to miss what will be a great event.

Fortunately, Wan (Fokkink), the co-chair of WG1.8, will be there, you will be able to discuss with him matters related to the proposal to hold a WG workshop at CONCUR 2007.

It would be great if one or more of the participants could report on the workshop using the blog. All you need to do is to email me your report(s), and I'll take care of posting them on this blog.

I, for one, would be happy to read about yet another great event I am missing.
