The Eighteenth Workshop on the Mathematical Foundations of Programming Semantics will be held inconjunction with the 2002 Clifford Lectures. Both events will take place on the campus of Tulane University, New Orleans, LA USA.
The Eighteenth Workshop on the Mathematical Foundations of Programming Semantics will follow the Clifford Lectures, commencing at midday on Saturday, March 23. The meeting wil run through Tuesday, March 26. The invited speakers for MFPS XVIII are

The MFPS conferences are devoted to those areas of mathematics, logic and computer science which are related to the semantics of programming languages. The series particularly has stressed providing a forum where both mathematicians and computer scientists can meet and exchange ideas about problems of common interest. We also encourage participation by researchers in neighboring areas, since we strive to maintain breadth in the scope of the series.
The Organizing Committee for MFPS consists of Stephen Brookes (CMU), Michael Main (Colorado), Austin Melton (Kent State University), Michael Mislove (Tulane) and David Schmidt (Kansas State). The local arrangements for MFPS XVIII are being overseen by Michael Mislove (Tulane).
In addition to supporting the conference overall, the support provided by the Office of Naval Research makes funds available to help offset expenses of graduate students. Women and minorities also are encouraged to inquire about possible support to attend the meeting.
