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.

Francois Boulier et al., Symbolic methods for chemical reaction networks (2012)

Carsten Gorg et al., Biological data visualization (2012)

Alberto Apostolico et al., Structure discovery in biology: motifs, networks and phylogenies (2012)

Ulrich Berger et al., Computing with infinite data: topological and logical foundations (2011)

I.E. Elishakoff et al., Uncertainty modeling and analysis with intervals: foundations, tools, applications (2011)

Anastassia Ailamaki et al., Information management in the cloud (2011)

Min Chen et al., Scientific visualization (2011)

Andreas Brandstadt et al., Exploiting graph structure to cope with hard problems (2011)

Zhenjiang Hu et al., Bidirectional transformation "bx" (2011)

Emma Hart et al., Artificial immune systems (2011)

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