Newcastle Asynchronous Workshop

Date/Time: Wednesday 20 July, 9.00am - 5.00pm

Venue: Merz Court, Third Floor, The Buttery

This is one of two international workshops organised by Asynchronous Systems Laboratory (ASL) which is run jointly by the School of Computing Science (Advanced Model-Based Engineering and Reasoning Research Group) and the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (MicroSystems Research Group).

The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum to present and discuss work on a wide range of topics related to the theory and applications of asynchronous concurrent and distributed systems.
