INFINITY PROJECT:

INFINITY is a cooperation project between the Vrije Unversiteit (Jan Willem Klop, Roel de Vrijer), Utrecht University (Vincent van Oostrom, Albert Visser), and CWI (Frank de Boer, Jan Rutten) in the period October 2005 - October 2008. INFINITY is a BRICKS project sponsored by NWO, and is concerned with infinite objects, computation, modeling, and reasoning.

For participants of the INFINITY project, the symposium is meant as an opportunity to learn about related work and meet people working in related fields. Most talks will be of a tutorial nature.
