String diagrams are a powerful tool for reasoning about processes and composition, which are becoming increasingly applied in the formal study of digital circuits, control theory, concurrency, quantum and classical computation, natural language processes, and more. This workshop aims to bring together researchers applying string diagrams in a variety of fields to collaborate and share new insights, tools, and techniques.
The program for STRING is now on the FSCD website. To view it, click here and check the box labelled "HDRA/String".

About the Jericho ⇮
The event will be hosted at the historical Jericho Tavern in the heart of Oxford, in the very same room where Radiohead and, more notably, The Quantum Dagger Orchestra, played their first gigs:
So, our venue has a long history of doing great things with strings. It is located here:
