Its aim is to be at least as successful. * Topics of Interest: We invite submissions of technical papers that report results of theoretical work on the mathematics of algebras and coalgebras, the way these results can support methods and techniques for software development, as well as experience with the transfer of resulting technologies into industrial practise. More details can be found on the webpage. * Programme Committee: Jiri Adamek, University of Braunschweig, D Jose Fiadeiro, University of Leicester, UK H.Peter Gumm, Philipps University, Marburg, D Bartek Klin, University of Warsaw, PL Bart Jacobs, University of Nijmegen, NL Marina Lenisa, University of Udine, I Ugo Montanari, University of Pisa, I (co-chair, http://www.di.unipi.it/~ugo/) Larry Moss, Indiana University, Bloomington, USA Till Mossakowski, University of Bremen and DFKI Lab Bremen, D (co-chair, http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/~till/) Peter Mosses, University of Wales Swansea, UK Fernando Orejas, Politechnical University Catalonia, Barcelona, E Prakash Panangaden, McGill University, CA Dirk Pattinson, University of Leicester, UK Dusko Pavlovic, Kestrel Institute, USA Jean-Eric Pin, CNRS-LIAFA Paris, F John Power, University of Edinburgh, UK Horst Reichel, Technical University of Dresden, D Grigore Rosu, University of Illinois, Urbana, USA Jan Rutten, CWI and Free University, Amsterdam, NL Davide Sangiorgi, University of Bologna, I Andrzej Tarlecki, Warsaw University, PL Martin Wirsing, Ludwig-Maximilian University, Munich, D Uwe Wolter, University of Bergen, NO
