CALL FOR PAPERS JOINT SYCO-STRING WORKSHOP
3rd Annual Workshop on String Diagrams in
Computation, Logic, and Physics
Fifth Symposium on Compositional Structures
University of Birmingham, UK
4-6 September 2019
STRING diagrams are a powerful tool for reasoning about processes and
composition. Originally developed as a convenient notation for the arrows
of monoidal and higher categories, they are increasingly used in the formal
study of digital circuits, control theory, concurrency, quantum and
classical computation, natural language processes, logic and more. String
diagrams combine the advantages of formal syntax with intuitive aspects:
the graphical nature of terms means that they often reflect the topology of
systems under consideration. Moreover, diagrammatic reasoning transforms
formal arguments into dynamic, moving images, thus building domain specific
intuitions, valuable both for practitioners and pedagogy.
The Symposium on Compositional Structures is a new 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. 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.
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. 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-STRING welcomes
submissions with a compositional focus related to any of the following
areas, in particular (but not necessarily) from the perspective of category
* logical methods in computer science, including classical and quantum
programming, type theory, concurrency, natural language processing and
* 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
* 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
* Aleks Kissinger, Oxford
* Jean Krivine, CNRS Paris
* Koko Muroya, RIMS Kyoto
* Detlef Plump, York
* Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, QMU London
* (more TBA)
All deadlines are 23:59 anywhere-on-earth on the given dates.
Submission deadline: 24 July 2019
Author notification: 7 August 2019
Travel support application deadline: To be announced
Registration: To be announced
Event dates: Wednesday 4 September to Friday 6 September 2019.
SYCO will take place on Wednesday 4 September and the morning of Thursday 5
STRING will take place on the afternoon of Thursday 5 September and all day
on Friday 6 September.
Submission for both meetings will be by a single EasyChair page. There will
be a single programme committee. Submission is not yet open.
Submissions should present research results in sufficient detail to allow
them to be properly considered. We encourage the submission of work in
progress, as well as mature results. There are no proceedings, so work can
be submitted even if it has been previously published, or has been
submitted for consideration elsewhere. There is no specific formatting
requirement, and no page limit, although for long submissions authors
should be aware that reviewers will not be able to read the entire document
in detail. Think creatively—you could submit a recent paper, draft notes of
a project in progress, or even a recent Masters or PhD thesis.
To indicate the meeting for which you would like your submission to be
considered, append "(STRING)" or "(SYCO)" in the title field of the
EasyChair submission page. If you would be happy for it to be presented at
either meeting, you may append both.
If you have a submission which was deferred from a previous SYCO meeting,
it will not automatically be considered for SYCO 5; you still need to
submit it again explicitly. Such a submission will be prioritised for
inclusion in the SYCO 5 programme. When submitting, append "(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.
