3rd Annual Workshop on String Diagrams in 
Computation, Logic, and Physics
(STRING 2019)

and the 

Fifth Symposium on Compositional Structures
(SYCO 5)


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 
machine learning;
* 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 theory;
* 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 

Invited speakers
* Aleks Kissinger, Oxford 
* Jean Krivine, CNRS Paris
* Koko Muroya, RIMS Kyoto 
* Detlef Plump, York
* Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, QMU London

Important dates
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.
