Next month I'll be giving a talk at the NLCS workshop, on the chiastic lambda-calculi I first presented at NASSLLI 2010 (slides[1]). After working out some of the metatheory for one of my quals, I gave more recent talks at our local PL Wonks and CLingDing seminars (slides). The NASSLLI talk was more about the linguistic motivations and the general idea, whereas the PLWonks/CLingDing talks were more about the formal properties of the calculus itself. For NLCS I hope to combine these threads a bit better— which has always been the challenge with this work.

NLCS is collocated with this year's LICS (and MFPS and CSF). I'll also be around for LICS itself, and in town for MFPS though probably not attending. So if you're around, feel free to stop by and chat.

[1] N.B., the NASSLLI syntax is a bit different than the newer version: square brackets were used instead of angle brackets (the latter were chosen because they typeset better in general); juxtaposition was just juxtaposition rather than being made explicit; and the left- vs right-chiastic distinction was called chi vs ksi (however, it turns out that ksi already has an important meaning in type theory).

Edit 2013.07.02: the slides are available here.
