Category Theory OctoberFest

McGill University, Montreal
Saturday - Sunday, October 16 - 17, 1999

The meeting is now over, but for information purposes, this page will remain in place for a while. Email addresses for the speakers may be found on the list of talks. "Provisional" schedules etc are now final.

We invite you to join us in Montreal next October for a weekend meeting in Category Theory, the "not-quite-annual" OctoberFest. As has been the tradition with these meetings, we invite talks from all participants. If you wish to give a talk, send your request along with a short abstract (before the end of September please) to Robert Seely at the address below. The final schedule of talks will be handed out at the meeting, but a provisional schedule is available, as well as a provisional list of speakers, in the meantime. (Also ABSTRACTS of selected talks.)

We will meet in the Bronfman Building, 1001 Sherbrooke West, on Saturday morning, October 16th. Coffee will be available from 8:30 am. The first talk will be at 9:00. Registration will take place during the morning, before the first talk and during the first coffee break. Lectures will be in room BRON 151.

There will be a registration fee of $CAN40 ($US30), $CAN20 ($US15) for students. There will be a dinner/party to be held Saturday evening, hosted by Marta Bunge. (Instructions for getting to the Bunge home will be announced at the meeting.) Please let us know if you intend to join us by sending a short email (before the end of September if possible) to Robert Seely, also indicating whether or not you will bring a guest to the party. (We need to have a good estimate of how many people will attend the party about a week before the meeting.)
