General Information

This meeting aims at a general understanding of the interconnections and relations between formal systems, ranging from programming languages for concurrency to logics. More specifically, we consider methods to compare concurrent programming concepts, such as imperative programming, logic programming, functional programming, concurrent programming, object-oriented programming, dataflow, and the various combinations thereof, on the basis of their relative expressive power. We also consider associated mathematical formalisms such as process algebras, Petri nets, modal logics, rewrite systems etc. from this point of view.

The meeting is mainly intended for active researchers to get together and discuss their latest results and methods. It is also the fourth meeting of the HCM project EXPRESS, which has been active with this focus since 1994. Previous meetings have been held in Amsterdam (1994, chaired by Frits Vaandrager), Tarquinia (1995, chaired by Rocco de Nicola), Dagstuhl (1996, chaired by Ursula Goltz).
