### Categories, Logic and Foundations of Physics in Oxford

#### Posted by John Baez

In rapid-fire succession we’ve seen two conferences on this subject in London… now another, organized by the same team, at Oxford!

- Categories, Logic and Foundations of Physics, Oxford University, August 23-24, 2008, organized by Bob Coecke and Andreas Döring

Dear All,

The next workshop on “Categories, Logic and Foundations of Physics” will take place at Oxford University, August 23-24. Programs and videos of previous workshops are available:

We have several confirmed speakers:

- Steve Vickers (Birmingham, Computer Science)
- Keith Hannabus (Oxford, Mathematics)
- John Barrett (Nothingham, Mathematics)
- Chris Fewster (York, Mathematics)
- Simon Perdrix (Oxford, Computer Science)
- Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh (Paris VII, PPS)
but are expected to have several more. It was requested by the audience at the last workshop to provide tutorials, namely quantum theory for mathematicians and category theory for physicists. At this workshop we will provide the first:

- Tutorials on quantum theory for mathematicians
on Saturday morning and early afternoon. Travel and hotel information will be made available at the website very soon. As before, for reasons of logistics, could you please let us know if you intend to attend.

Best wishes, Bob Coecke and Andreas Doering.
