    Logic and Computation

    Programme theme: The central focus of the programme will be the theories of computability and complexity, and the algorithmic study of randomness. Other possible areas are finite and computable model theory and logics of programs, including complexity of decision problems and applications to specification and verification.

    Programme director: Professor Rob Goldblatt (Victoria University of Wellington)

    Programme committee:

  • Professor Rod Downey, Victoria University of Wellington
  • Dr Neil Leslie, Victoria University of Wellington
  • Associate Professor Bakhadyr Khoussainov, University of Auckland
  • Dr Andre Nies, University of Auckland

    Workshop details: The key meeting was held in Nelson during the week 11 - 16 January 2004. Further information on the workshop has been archived on the programme website, Logic and Computation.

    Phylogenetic Genomics

    Programme theme: This programme aims to bring together leading experts to investigate the following topical problem: how can new types of genomic data best be used to infer evolutionary information? This question involves many challenging combinatorial problems. Further information can be found on the programme website.

    Programme director: Professor Mike Steel (University of Canterbury)

    Programme committee:

  • Dr Charles Semple, University of Canterbury
  • Professor Daniel Huson, University of Tuebingen (Germany)
  • Assistant Professor David Bryant, McGill University (Canada)
  • Associate Professor Peter Lockhart, Massey University

    Workshop details: An international phylogeny meeting took place in Kaikoura the week 9-14 February 2003. A follow-up meeting (DOOM 04) was held from 15-20 February 2004 to provide a focus for the problems and ideas presented at Kaikoura. Further information is archived on the website, DOOM 04.
