20110404/8: Cezar Ionescu visiting
20110228: A paper on Monadic Dynamical Systems in Haskell and C++ submitted
20101201: Congratulations to Fritz Henglein - the HIPERFIT project was granted (a strategic research center on functional high-performance computing in finance in Denmark).
20101001: GSDP project started.
20100824: The FP group writes a support letter for Fritz Hengleins application for a (Danish) strategic research center on functional high-performance computing in finance (HIPERFIT).
20100428: GSDP coordination action has been accepted (~1.3M €) - negotiation in Brussels today
Global Systems Dynamics and Policy (GSDP) is coordinated by the European Climate Forum (Carlo Jaeger, also at PIK) and involves with 13 sites including Chalmers (contact = Patrik Jansson). Includes seven work-packages including "Domain specific languages for Modelling Global Systems" (led by Patrik Jansson).
Main deliverable: a research plan for the coming ~20 years.
20100126: Submitted a proposal: GSDP = Global Systems Dynamics and Policy
Work programme topics addressed: ICT-2009.8.0 FET Open: Challenging Current Thinking
Type of funding scheme: Coordination Action (CA)
20100111: Submitted a short proposal: "Using Constructive Type Theory to Specify Computer Programs in Sustainability Research"
A consortium coordinated by the European Climate Forum (ECF) containing the sites Chalmers (Jansson), Oxford (Gibbons), Paris1 (Mandel), Niersc (Kovalevsky). We have just submitted a short proposal to EU under the ICT FET-Open call (Future and Emerging Technology).
20091029: Start of a journal version of the VulnModel paper
20091027-30: Patrik Jansson visit to PIK
Aim: draft a proposal for a joint EU application around type theory, functional programming and sustainability research.
20090930: Submitted PostDoc grant proposal
20090819-27: Cezar Ionescu visiting Chalmers
Discussions and preparations for a joint EU application around type theory, functional programming and sustainability research.
20090715: The VulnModel paper was presented at the Working Conference on Domain Specific Languages in Oxford
20081221: Joint PIK-Chalmers paper (codename VulnModel) submitted:
- Title: Generic Libraries in C++ with Concepts from High-Level Domain Descriptions in Haskell --- A Domain-Specific Library for Computational Vulnerability Assessment
- Authors: Daniel Lincke, Patrik Jansson, Marcin Zalewski and Cezar Ionescu
20081127-081204: Daniel Lincke visit
The purpose of the meeting is to present the prototypes of concept based components for a "monadic systems library for earth system modelling" we have recently developed at PIK and to evaluate possible cooperations in the further development of a library out of these prototypes.
Further work towards a paper about Vulnerability Modelling is now (081208) ongoing.

Talk by Cezar Ionescu on Thursday 081106, 13.15 in the EDIT-room Title: Functional Programming in Climate Impact Research
Abstract: Climate impact research aims to understand the implications of man-induced climate change on society. In this highly interdisciplinary area, concepts used have sometimes very different meanings to the various participants, leading to potential confusions. We have used functional programming, in particular Haskell, as a tool for clarifying concepts, formulating precise, operational, and testable conditions for their applications. We illustrate this with the example of ``vulnerability''.
