Organizers: Peter O'Hearn, Matthew Parkinson

Note: An excellent successor workshop was hosted by Joey Coleman and Cliff Jones in Newcastle, the Northern Concurrency Workshop in Nov 2009.

This meeting is born of the close geographical, and even sometimes conceptual and technical, proximity of people who have recently made fresh advances on the theory of concurrency. Anyone is welcome to attend, but the the talks will be aimed at experts, and there will be no expository presentations.


It would help to know (of) things like separation logic, rely-guarantee, process algebras, and modal logics and type systems for processes.

Talks are scheduled for 30min, with ample time set aside separately for discussion.

Note that the talks are in different rooms on the different days.
