OverviewPrakash has made major contributions across a remarkably wide range of topics, including probabilistic and concurrent computation, logics and duality, and quantum information and computation. His work is characterised by the qualities of elegance, clarity and concern for fundamentals, and has been instrumental in making connections between different research areas and communities. Equally important for his many friends has been the infectious enthusiasm and enjoyment he brings to his scientific work, and the generous and sustained support and encouragement he has given to many junior colleagues.
The conference will feature talks by many of Prakash's friends and collaborators. We anticipate that this will be a very enjoyable event, blending fun and science - how could a meeting for Prakash be otherwise! We warmly invite everyone to participate. Information on how to register can be found below.
This event is twinned with a Spring School in Quantum Structures in Physics and Computer Science, to be held on the dates 19--22 May 2014 at the University of Oxford: http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/ss2014.
