ALCOP 2015 -- Call for participation


     ALCOP 2015: Algebra and Coalgebra meet Proof Theory
     Dates: 6 - 8 May 2015
     Location: Delft University of Technology


(Apologies if you receive this announcement twice. Please forward to
anyone interested.)

The ALCOP meetings bring together experts in algebraic logic,
coalgebraic logic and proof theory with the aim of sharing new results
and developing mutually beneficial relationships between these fields.
As a special theme, ALCOP 2015 will explore connections with
substructural logics and their applications in computer science, social
science and AI.

This year's keynote speakers are:

* F??lix Bou, Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA), Spain
* Agata Ciabattoni, TU Vienna
* Clemens Kupke, University of Strathclyde
* Tadeusz Litak, FAU Erlangen-N??rnberg
* David Pym, University College London

Postdoctoral fellowship at Dalhousie with 50% outreach, 50% research

Dear category theorists,

a new postdoc position is advertised at Dalhousie, which could be of
interest to some of the readers of this list. The position is 50%
research and 50% outreach activities. The research could be, for
example, in category theory. Applications are due on May 4, 2015
(note: that's only 2 weeks away!), and the position would start in
August or September. See more details below.

-- Peter


The Atlantic Association of Research in the Mathematical Sciences
(AARMS) and the department of Mathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie
University are advertizing a post-doctoral fellowship with duties in
outreach coordination. The post-doctoral fellow will spend 50% of her or
his duties on research, and 50% on outreach coordination and
communication, see job description below. The research area of the
candidate should align with that of one of the members of the department
of Mathematics and Statistics, and this member should agree to
supervision of the PDF.

The outreach coordinator duties consist of the following:

* Establish and maintain relations with the initiators and
   participants of various outreach activities associated with AARMS
* Help develop and maintain on-line resources such as a Web page,
   social media presence, bank of on-line resources
* Help in reporting on the activities to various sponsors

A preprint on locally presentable categories available

We want to announce our preprint available as arXiv:1504.03886

  	On reflective subcategories of localy presentable categories


Are all subcategories of locally finitely presentable categories that are
closed under limits and ??-filtered colimits also locally presentable? For full
subcategories the answer is affirmative. Makkai and Pitts proved that in the
case ??=???0 the answer is affirmative also for all iso-full subcategories, i.e.,
those containing with every pair of objects all isomorphisms between them. We
discuss a possible generalization of that result to an arbitrary ??.

The European Master's Program in Computational Logic: Application until 31 May 2015

Dear all,

I'd like to draw your attention to the fact that applications for the
European Master's Program in Computational Logic are still possible
UNTIL 31 May 2015.

More details are given below.

Please spread this information as wide as possible among friends and
colleagues, at your old universities and the places, where you currently
live and work.

Many thanks -- Steffen


The European Master's Program in Computational Logic

We are glad to announce to you the possibility to join our European
Master's Program of Computational Logic. This program is offered jointly
at the Free-University of Bozen-Bolzano in Italy, the Technische
Universit??t Dresden in Germany, the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in
Portugal and the Technische Universit??t Wien in Austria. Within this
program you have the choice to study at two /three of the four European
universities. In addition, you can do your project work at the National
ICT of Australia (NICTA). You will graduate with a MSc in Computer
Science and obtain a joint degree. Information on the universities and
the program including the application procedure is provided here:

Conference on Homotopy in Concurrency and Rewriting

Conference on
Homotopy in Concurrency and Rewriting
June 9-11, 2015

A conference will take place in École Polytechnique (in Palaiseau, near 
France) about tools and methods which originate from geometry in 
concurrency and
rewriting. Details can be found on the dedicated webpage:



The conference on directed algebraic topology, concurrency and rewriting 
aims at
bringing together researchers interested in applying methods originating in
topology and in higher-dimensional rewriting. It is motivated by the 
over the recent years, of many connections between the study of concurrent
processes from a topological point of view and rewriting methods and
structures. It will be interested in applications of those fields to 
commonly encountered in computer science, in the study of concurrent and
distributed processes, in semantics of programming languages, but also

If you are currently doing a PhD or an MSc in the research areas of the RAMiCS
conference, then please consider submitting a short description of your ongoing
work for presentation at the conference (if accepted). This is an excellent
opportunity to discuss your work with leading experts in this field.

Submissions for the student session should take the form of extended abstracts.
They must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. They
need to be in English, in postscript or pdf format, not exceeding 6 pages
produced with LaTeX in Springer LNCS style to be found under
