                    Twenty-sixth Conference on the
                     Mathematical Foundations of
                        Programming Semantics

                         University of Ottawa
                       Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
                           May 6 - 10, 2010

The Twenty-sixth Conference on the Mathematical Foundations of
Programming Semantics will take place on the campus of the University
of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada UK from May 6 - 10, 2010. MFPS conferences
are devoted to those areas of mathematics, logic, and computer science
that are related to models of computation, in general, and to the
semantics of programming languages, in particular. The series has
particularly stressed providing a forum where researchers in
mathematics and computer science can meet and exchange ideas about
problems of common interest. As the series also strives to maintain
breadth in its scope, the conference strongly encourages participation
by researchers in neighboring areas.

TOPICS include, but are not limited to: biocomputation, concurrent and
distributed computation, constructive mathematics, domain theory and
categorical models, formal languages, formal methods, game semantics,
lambda calculus, logic, probabilistic systems, process calculi,
programming language theory, quantum computation, security,
topological models, type systems, type theory.
