Birmingham, UK
15-16 April, 2024

Submission deadline: Monday 11 March 2024<>

The Symposium on Compositional Structures (SYCO) is an interdisciplinary series
of meetings aiming to support the growing community of researchers interested in
the phenomenon of compositionality, from both applied and abstract perspectives,
and in particular where category theory serves as a unifying common
language. Previous SYCO events have been held in Palaiseau, Birmingham, Strathclyde,
Oxford, Chapman, Leicester, Tallinn, and Como.

We welcome submissions from researchers across computer science, mathematics,
physics, philosophy, and beyond, with the aim of fostering friendly discussion,
disseminating new ideas, and spreading knowledge between fields. Submission is
encouraged for both mature research and work in progress, and by both
established academics and junior researchers, including students. Submissions is
easy, with no formatting or page restrictions. The meeting does not have
proceedings, so work can be submitted even if it has been submitted or published
elsewhere. You could submit work-in-progress, or a recently completed paper, or
even a PhD or Masters thesis.

While no list of topics could be exhaustive, SYCO welcomes submissions with a
compositional focus related to any of the following areas, in particular from
the perspective of category theory:

- logical methods in computer science, including classical and quantum
    programming, type theory, concurrency, natural language processing and machine
- graphical calculi, including string diagrams, Petri nets and reaction
- languages and frameworks, including process algebras, proof nets, type theory
    and game semantics;
- abstract algebra and pure category theory, including monoidal category theory,
    higher category theory, operads, polygraphs, and relationships to homotopy
- quantum algebra, including quantum computation and representation theory;
- tools and techniques, including rewriting, formal proofs and proof assistants,
    and game theory;
- industrial applications, including case studies and real-world problem


All deadlines are 23:59 Anywhere on Earth.

Submission deadline: Monday 11 March, 2024
Author notification: Monday 18 March, 2024
Symposium dates: Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 April 2024


Submissions are by OpenReview, via the SYCO 12 submission page:<>
(be aware that you will need to create an account on OpenReview, which is
automatic if you are using an academic e-mail address, but might take up to
2 weeks with a non-academic e-mail address)

Submission is easy, with no format requirements or page restrictions. The
meeting does not have proceedings, so work can be submitted even if it has been
submitted or published elsewhere. Think creatively: you could submit a recent
paper, or notes on work in progress, or even a recent Masters or PhD thesis.

In the event that more good-quality submissions are received than can be
accommodated in the timetable, the programme committee may choose to *defer*
some submissions to a future meeting, rather than reject them. Deferred
submissions can be re-submitted to any future SYCO meeting, where they will not
need peer review, and where they will be prioritised for inclusion in the
programme. Meetings will be held sufficiently frequently to avoid a backlog of
deferred papers.

If you have a submission which was deferred from a previous SYCO meeting, it
will not automatically be considered for SYCO 12; you still need to submit it
again through OpenReview. When submitting, append the words "DEFERRED FROM SYCO
X" to the title of your paper, replacing "X" with the appropriate meeting
number. There is no need to attach any documents.


The PC chair is Thibaut Benjamin, University of Cambridge. The Programme Committee will
be announced soon.
