### The 8th Scottish Category Theory Seminar

#### Posted by Tom Leinster

ScotCats 8 will take place in Edinburgh next Friday, 29 November, with an all-star programme featuring one of your $n$-Café hosts:

- Urs Schreiber (Nijmegen), Higher toposes of laws of motion
- Vincent Danos (Edinburgh), Conditional expectation as a functor
- Ross Duncan (Strathclyde), Quantum computing in (almost) any category: an introduction to the ZX-calculus
- Bart Jacobs (Nijmegen), Program semantics, according to Heisenberg and to Schroedinger

I’m particularly looking forward to this one: it promises to be an excellent afternoon of talks.

The seminar web page has practical details. Thanks to the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust and the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance for funding.
