Types, Processes and Compositional Program Logic.

[The Types Forum, http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/mailman/listinfo/types-list]

Dear colleagues,

I have done a small work on types and process/program logics.
It shows, among others, that types and compositional program
logics are in a tighter relationship than might have been
appreciated before, especially in the context of higher-order
programming languages.

The following link lists several papers related to this
topic. The title and abstract of the main paper are attached
at the end of this mail.

    http://www.dcs.qmul.ac.uk/~kohei/logics

In addition to the main paper, two short papers (2 and 4 in
the web page) would offer concise summaries of some of the
key ideas.

Your comments on this work will be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,

kohei

                 The 11th International Symposium on
                TEMPORAL REPRESENTATION AND REASONING
                             (TIME 2004)

http://www.greyc.unicaen.fr/time2004

Tatihou, Basse Normandie, France
1-3 July, 2004

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together active researchers
from distinct research areas involving the representation of, or
reasoning with, time. As with previous meetings in this respected
series, one of the main goals of the  TIME symposium will be to bridge
the gap between theoretical and applied research in temporal
representation and reasoning.

- 14 papers were selected out 40 submitted papers, for full
presentation at the Symposium.

Suggestions for Advanced Programming courses?

[The Types Forum, http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/mailman/listinfo/types-list]

Some of us at Penn are thinking about a new junior-level undergraduate
course on "Advanced Programming."  The goal is to take students who are
already *competent* programmers (having already done a considerable amount
of coding in several courses during the first two or two and a half years)
and give them a sense of how really *good* programmers work.  

Of course, we'd prefer to do this in the context of a civilized programming
language!  In particular, discussing modularity will be much easier in a
language with a modern module system or powerful type-system support for
modular programming -- this makes SML, OCaml, and Haskell natural choices
[*].  However, advanced textbooks and related course materials such as
projects -- critical for the success of such a course -- are not so
plentiful for these languages.

There must be lots of Types readers who have worked on similar course
designs.  Would you be willing to share some of your experiences?

Please reply directly to me and I will summarize to the list.

Regards,

     Benjamin

[*] I know Scheme also has good modularity support these days, so this is
another possibility; I would be interested in hearing about what kind of
advanced coursework people are doing in Scheme.  However, our taste runs to
statically typed languages.

RE: Suggestions for Advanced Programming courses?

[The Types Forum, http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/mailman/listinfo/types-list]

Aha!  Great minds think in similar ways, I guess.  I've been meaning to
invent just such a course here at CMU.  I was thinking of calling it
"Programming Methodology", or maybe "Real Software Engineering".  What I
want to do is to teach what it means to write good code, and how to do
it.  Students just do not know.  My idea is to be integrative, putting
together the various ideas they get in various classes (good algorithms,
typed language, modular design, specification and verification, and so
on).

Let me know what you come up with!

Bob

P.S. to "Suggestions for Advanced Programming course materials"

[The Types Forum, http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/mailman/listinfo/types-list]

I should have added that we are, of course, also considering Java and C#
as possibilities.  But the students already see a lot of Java (and C) in
their other coursework, so it would be nice to expose them to some of
the programming ideas and habits of thought encouraged by functional
languages (persistent data structures, structural recursion, ...).

Ideally, one would do 3/4 of the course in a functional language and use
the remaining time to show students how they can transfer idioms from
these languages to more commonly used languages such as Java and C#.

Computational Methods in Systems Biology - Final Call for Participation.

[The Types Forum, http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/mailman/listinfo/types-list]

Biological modeling is increasingly in search of sophisticated modeling 
frameworks and automated tools for model analysis and refinement. Some 
models based on concurrent languages are actively being investigated in 
the programming language community. Part of the purpose and specificity 
of CMSB is to bring a computer science audience in touch with this 
potentially immense field of application.
