17 September 2016, Directions in Computability Theory: A meeting in memory of Barry Cooper, Leeds, England

Date: 17 September 2016
Location: Leeds, England

A meeting in memory of Barry Cooper, who died last autumn, will be held In the School of Mathematics, University of Leeds, on Saturday September 17th 2016. All friends and former students of Barry's, as well as anyone interested in Mathematical Logic, is welcome to attend. The focus will be on Computability Theory, particularly with reference to Barry's work.

Barry was a central figure in the study of Computability Theory in the UK, and had a large number of research students and postdoctoral assistants. He was a founding member and president of the Association Computability in Europe (CiE). In recent years, he also achieved a high profile because of his work in promoting awareness of the Alan Turing Centenary.

The meeting will consist of 4 talks followed by a dinner in the evening, together with a jazz performance. (Barry was a founder and keen member of the Leeds Jazz Club).
