Dear Colleagues,

Please consider presenting your research at SYCO! We are definitely HoTT 

Best wishes,



University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
       17-18 December, 2018


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. The first SYCO was held at the School of Computer 
Science, University of Birmingham, 20-21 September, 2018, attracting 70 

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.

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 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 

This new series aims to bring together the communities behind many previous 
successful events which have taken place over the last decade, including 
"Categories, Logic and Physics", "Categories, Logic and Physics 
(Scotland)", "Higher-Dimensional Rewriting and Applications", "String 
Diagrams in Computation, Logic and Physics", "Applied Category Theory", 
"Simons Workshop on Compositionality", and the "Peripatetic Seminar in 
Sheaves and Logic".

SYCO will be a regular fixture in the academic calendar, running regularly 
throughout the year, and becoming over time a recognized venue for 
presentation and discussion of results in an informal and friendly 
atmosphere. To help create this community, and to avoid the need to make 
difficult choices between strong submissions, 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. This would be done based 
largely on submission order, giving an incentive for early submission, but 
would also take into account other requirements, such as ensuring a broad 
scientific programme. Deferred submissions would be accepted for 
presentation at any future SYCO meeting without the need for peer review. 
This will allow us to ensure that speakers have enough time to present 
their ideas, without creating an unnecessarily competitive reviewing 
process. Meetings would be held sufficiently frequently to avoid a backlog 
of deferred papers.

All times are anywhere-on-earth.

 - Submission deadline: Friday 16 November 2018
 - Author notification: Friday 23 November 2018
 - Travel funding application deadline: Wednesday 28 November 2018
 - Registration deadline: Friday 7 December 2018
 - Symposium dates: Monday 17 December and Tuesday 18 December 2018


Submission is by EasyChair, via the following link:

  - https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=syco2

Submissions should present research results in sufficient detail to allow 
them to be properly considered by members of the programme committee, who 
will assess papers with regards to significance, clarity, correctness, and 
scope. 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 understand that reviewers may 
not be able to read the entire document in detail.


Some funding is available to cover travel and subsistence costs, with a 
priority for PhD students and junior researchers. To apply for this 
funding, please contact the local organizer Fredrik Nordvall Forsberg at 
fredrik.nordvall-forsberg@strath.ac.uk with a short statement of your 
current status, travel costs and funding required. The application deadline 
is Wednesday 28 November, in the week after author notifications.
