City and Transport

Amsterdam is a historic city of outstanding beauty. It is the capital of the Netherlands and home to over 700,000 people. The Netherlands have a temperate climate. The average rainfall in June is 70mm, and the average day temperature is 19 degrees centigrade.

The Amsterdam Schiphol airport serves hundreds of destinations daily from all over the world. From the airport it is a short train journey to the centre of the city, with trains running day and night.

The railway and road networks in the Netherlands provide for easy routes from neighbouring countries (Germany and Belgium) as well as the rest of continental Europe. There are daily ferry services to and from the United Kingdom. Public transport in Amsterdam is frequent and reliable.

Hotel accommodation will be arranged in various different Hotels in and around the city of Amsterdam.

Host Institutes

The Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) is a part of the Mathematical Centre Foundation, aiming to foster mathematics and computer science research in the Netherlands. Special attention is paid to the applicability of the results of fundamental research; part of CWI's mission is to transfer new knowledge to society in general, and trade and industry in particular.

The Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Astronomy of the University of Amsterdam (UvA/WINS) has strong research groups in the areas of theoretical computer science, programming methodology and computer systems.

The conference will be organised in collaboration with the University of Nijmegen (KUN) which has a long tradition of research in functional programming.
