In mo re than a decade of research, it has been establis hed that a wide\n variety of state-based dy namical systems, like transition systems,\n automata (including weighted and probabilistic va riants), Markov\n chains, and game-based sy stems, can be treated uniformly as\n coalge bras. Coalgebra has developed into a field of its own interest\n presenting a deep mathematic al foundation, a growing field of\n applica tions, and interactions with various other fields such as\n reactive and interactive system t heory, object-oriented and concurrent\n pro gramming, formal system specification, modal and d escription\n logics, artificial intelligenc e, dynamical systems, control systems,\n ca tegory theory, algebra, analysis, etc. The aim of the CMCS workshop\n series is to bring toge ther researchers with a common interest in the\n theory of coalgebras, their logics, and thei r applications.\n
