Midlands Graduate School 2009, Leicester, UK
Monday 30th March to Friday 3rd April
The Midlands Graduate School (MGS) provides an intensive course of lectures on the Mathematical Foundations of Computing Science. It has run annually since 1999 and has been held at either the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester, or the University of Nottingham. The lectures are aimed at graduate students, typically in their first or second year of study for a PhD. However, the school is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about mathematical computing foundations, and all such applicants are warmly welcomed. We very much encourage students from abroad to attend, and many have done so in the past.
Students of MGS are typically extremely pleased with our events, giving us very high satisfaction ratings, and 100% of students in recent years say they would recommend MGS. This is our tenth anniversary and we hope that you will be able to take part!
The lectures will take place at the John Foster Hall , about 3 miles from the city centre, and 2 miles from the main University of Leicester Campus. Accommodation will be provided here as well. This is a modern conference venue, opened in 2006. It is a very short distance from the University's Botanical Gardens.
There are Core courses which are taken by everyone, and consist of five one hour lectures. There are also Options, which consist of four one hour lectures. These are listed below.
This year MGS has invited Professor Peter Dybjer, Chalmers University of Technology, as guest lecturer.
