Workshop Topic and Aims
Coalgebra is a unifying theory of state-based systems. It has emerged in the last two decades as the right mathematical framework for reasoning about infinite objects and non-well-founded structures, encompassing and abstracting fundamental concepts such as bisimilarity, coinduction and modal logic. This area has now reached a level of maturity; the aim of the workshop is to provide an overview of the state-of-the art and perspectives for future research as well as to explore connections between coalgebra and other fields in theoretical computer science. The workshop will consist of invited talks by leading coalgebra researchers as well as prominent researchers whose work has often crossed paths with the coalgebra community. The workshop will also be a chance for a wider audience, such as the one attending FLOC, to be introduced to coalgebra theory by some of the founders of the field.
