Aims and Scope
During the last few years, it is becoming increasingly clear that a great
variety of statebased dynamical systems, like transition systems,
automata,
process calculi and classbased systems can be captured uniformly as
coalgebras.
Coalgebra is developing into a field of its own interest presenting a deep
mathematical foundation, a growing field of applications and interactions
with various other fields such as reactive and interactive system theory,
object oriented and concurrent programming, formal system specification,
modal logic, dynamical systems, control systems, category theory, algebra,
analysis, etc. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers
with a common interest in the theory of coalgebras and its applications.
The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

the theory of coalgebras (including set theoretic and categorical
approaches);

coalgebras as computational and semantical models (for programming
languages,
dynamical systems, etc.);

coalgebras in (functional, objectoriented, concurrent) programming;

coalgebras and data types;

(coinductive) definition and proof principles for coalgebras (with
bisimulations
or invariants);

coalgebras and algebras;

coalgebraic specification and verification;

coalgebras and (modal) logic;

coalgebra and control theory (notably of discrete event and hybrid
systems).
The workshop will provide an opportunity to present recent and ongoing
work, to meet colleagues, and to discuss new ideas and future trends.
Previous workshops of the same series have been organized in Lisbon,
Amsterdam, Berlin, and Genova. The proceedings appeared as
Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) Volumes 11,19,
33, and 41. You can get an idea of the types of papers presented at the
meeting
by looking at the tables of contents of the ENTCS volumes from
the meetings, available
at the
ENTCS page.
Location
CMCS2002 will be held in Grenoble in April 2002.
It is a
satellite
workshop of ETAPS 2002, the European Joint Conferences on Theory and
Practice of Software. For venue, registration
