18th UK Asynchronous Forum
The UK Asynchronous Forum is an informal 1-day meeting where those working in asynchronous design in the UK (and particularly research students) can meet to present and discuss ideas. The event is optimised for UK participants though others are welcome to attend. See the UK Asynchronous Forum home page for further details.
Download proceedings here - PDF 3.44MB.
The scope of the Async Forum will be interpreted broadly to include:
Extended abstracts of not more than 4 pages must be submitted to Alex.Yakovlev@newcastle.ac.uk by 4th August 2006. Abstracts must be sent in either ASCII, postscript (which must be viewable with ghostview) or pdf.
The general structure of the forum is below.

The 18th UK Asynchronous Forum is being hosted by the Asynchronous Systems Group at the School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Room details :- Research Beehive, Room 2.21. It is located in Level 2 of Old Library Building (Map).
Day 1 evening meal will be at Ristorante "La Toscana".
Newcastle is well served by road, rail and air.
The venue can be reached by Metro from the Newcastle Central rail station, or from the airport. Get off at the Haymarket station (Newcastle city centre map).
Parking can be arranged at the University's Visitors car park. Contact us beforehand if you need to park your car as space can be limited and must be pre-booked.
Accommodation will be at Castle Leazes Halls - (Shown top left on this map - Newcastle city centre map)..
Workshop fee (including proceedings, dinner and accomodation 'B&B') is £55.00.
If you do not want to stay in Castle Leazes Halls, the fee (proceedings & dinner) is £35.00. You will have to make your own accomodation arrangements.
