Summer school on bidirectional transformations

Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, UK
25th to 29th July 2016


Bidirectional transformations (BX) are means of maintaining consistency between multiple information sources: when one source is edited, the others may need updating to restore consistency. BX have applications in databases, user interface design, model-driven development, and many other domains. This summer school is one of the closing activities on the "Theory of Least Change for BX" project at Oxford and Edinburgh. It brings together leading researchers in BX, spanning theory and
practice, for a week of lectures in beautiful Oxford. It will be aimed at doctoral students in computer science, but will also be suitable for strong master's students and for researchers.

The school will take place at Lady Margaret Hall in leafy North Oxford, right next to the University Parks and the River Cherwell and a short walk from the City Centre. LMH is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford; it was founded in 1878 as the first women's college in Oxford. Our lectures will take place in the splendid Simpkins Lee Theatre in the Pipe Partridge Building, completed in 2010.


Details to follow - please keep an eye on the webpage. The Summer School is financially partially supported by EPSRC, and we hope to keep costs low: an early registration fee of £200 (or £150 for
students) if booked before the early registration deadline of 10th June, rising to £250 (or £200 for students) after that point. The registration fee includes lunches, coffee breaks, and a banquet one
evening. We have reserved bed-and-breakfast accommodation in college, at £62.50 per night in an ensuite room, £58 per night standard; those rooms will be released after the early registration deadline, after which point there will be no guarantee of accommodation. Space is limited; there is room for 40 students.
