Aims and Scope

During the last few years, it is becoming increasingly clear that a great variety of state-based dynamical systems, like transition systems, automata, process calculi and class-based 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 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.


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 and suggested accommodation see the ETAPS2002 web page.
