A formal analysis of the semantic foundations of the UML notations can also lead to more precise and complete natural language descriptions of the notations in the UML standard. These observations are particularly relevant when we consider the dynamic behaviour of the UML models. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to report on their experiences with developing precise semantics for the dynamic behaviour of UML models. Presentations and discussions at this workshop will focus on identifying the challenges, recognizing limitations, and analyzing proposed semantics for the dynamic aspects of UML. * Attendance at the workshop will be on invitation only. Participants that would like to be invited are asked to write a position paper on some aspect of the dynamic behaviour of UML models. * Contact. Gianna Reggio (DISI-Universita' di Genova, Italy) email@example.com * Organizers.

Robin Milner, a major figure in the field, has made many fundamental contributions, particularly in theoretical computer science, the theory of programming languages, and functional programming languages. * Following a brief biography of Milner, the book contains five sections: Semantic Foundations, Programming Logic, Programming Languages, Concurrency, and Mobility. Together the pieces convey a seamless whole, ranging from highly abstract concepts to systems of great utility. * Contributors: Samson Abramsky, J. C. M. Baeten, Sergey Berezin, J. A.

TENURE TRACK POSITION AT TULANE UNIVERSITY Available Fall 2001 http://www.math.tulane.edu * Pending administrative and budgetary approval, the Mathematics Department anticipates a regular, tenure track Assistant Professor position in Theoretical Computer Science. The areas of interest include logic and semantics of programming languages and related areas. We are especially interested in candidates who complement the areas currently represented in the department, which include domain theory, concurrency and applications to security. We also would welcome applications from candidates with expertise in verification. The department intends to develop an undergraduate program in computer science within the Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the successful candidate will have strong input into the design of this degree program. * Candidates should have a PhD in computer science or a related discipline. * Further Information can be found at http://www.math.tulane.edu
