Mercoledì 18 Febbraio 2015 in Aula ERCOLANI 3, Mura Anteo Zamboni 2b, Bologna, alle ore 12:00 si terrà il seminario "Concurrency theory and concurrent languages: an evolutionary view of programming abstractions" tenuto da Silvia Crafa dell'Università di Padova.

Abstract:

In this talk I will review the history of popular programming languages from an  evolutionary perspective, focusing on the so-called quest for good programming abstractions. In particular, I will discuss the different abstraction levels involved in  present-day concurrent and distributed programming, commenting on the role of  concurrency theory.

The general aim is pointing out a number of remarks in order to grasp a unifying, but not simplistic, view of concurrency.
