Keynote: Concurrency and Models of Abstraction:  Past, Present and Future

Dr. Jeremy Martin, Head of Delivery Advisory and Assurance at Lloyd’s of London and Senior Research Fellow, University of Buckingham

“I will present a personal view of some of the key historical developments in Concurrency Theory and how abstract models have been used to make it easier to develop concurrent systems.  This will cover aspects of operating systems, computer architecture, CSP and Cloud Computing.   I will then provide an assessment of the main Concurrency issues facing us today and make predictions as to how these will be solved in the future”
