# Dagstuhl talk

I helped organize a conference called Categories at the Crossroads at a castle in Germany called Schloss Dagstuhl. It happened a couple of weeks ago but I haven't had time to blog about it yet. The overall goal was to revitalize applied category theory, and I'll have a lot more to say about that sometime. But my own talk was an experiment at combining ecological themes with category theory:

It was a somewhat risky mixture of ideas, but I think it went over well for this particular audience - people interested in applications of category theory, and more generally in 'big ideas'. I'll have to blog about this too sometime.

Great slides again!

I didn't know about the Creative Commons Dagstuhl reports. Very socio-technical, as seems popular in Germany, with lots about high performance computing (HPC). They are short but each has a useful reference list.

Here are some which might be relevant.

Wow, thanks for that nice list - you seem to have picked out the ones we might be most interested in!
