As technology is developing, more and more complex tasks are expected to be performed by machines or computers without any human intervention. An example is the control of unmanned straddle carriers on a container terminal without being instructed by a human driver. A challenge for mathematicians is to find control laws for such sophisticated systems.

25 Years of Concurrency Theory at CWI. Speakers: Jos Baeten, Gerard Holzmann, Jan Bergstra, Moshe Vardi. The SEN2 group at CWI has played a prominent role in concurrency theory since the early 80's, with an emphasis on algebraic techniques for the specification and verification of software systems. Five consecutive leaders of SEN2 started research groups at Dutch universities. Now that concurrency theory is so well established in The Netherlands, CWI has decided to shift the focus of SEN2 to service-oriented computing.
