Domains XII

Domains XII -August  25 to August 28, 2015

Domains XII: The international conference Domains is aimed at computer scientists and mathematicians alike who share an interest in the mathematical foundations of computation. Previous Domains meetings include Paris (2014), Swansea (2011), Sussex (2008) and Novosibirsk (2007). Domains is an open and interactive event, welcoming talks on topics related to domains and related aspects (list included below) as well as talks pertaining to the general Boole theme of the overarching mathematical sciences conference. Conference publication will be considered pending participant interest. Domains XII will be embedded in the George Boole Mathematical Sciences (GMBS) Conference. Further information on this event is included below.

George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference: Domains XII will be embedded in the George Boole Mathematical Sciences Conference, Cork, Ireland. Information on the GBMS conference program is available at:

As part of the celebrations of Boole’s bicentenary, the George Boole Mathematical Sciences (GBMS) Conference (including Domains XII) will be held in University College Cork (UCC) during the last two weeks of August 2015.George Boole (1815 – 1864) was the first professor of mathematics at Cork. Boole’s efforts to mathematize logical thinking caused a lasting paradigm shift in the 19th century which enlarged the scope and potency of modern mathematics, and provided a wealth of ideas for applications in diverse scientific areas resulting in ground-breaking innovations during the 20th century and beyond.
