Louvain-la-Neuve Logic Sprint: Monday March 6th - Friday March 10th 2006 

Where PyPy meets Oz !

Monday and Tuesday to work on PyPy (WP10: logic programming).
Wednesday and Thursday to meet with the people behind Oz.
Friday to work on PyPy.

Goals and topics of the sprint 

While attendees of the sprint are of course welcome to work on what
they wish, we offer these ideas:

  - Experiment with the constraint store and dataflow variables added
    as a library to PyPy.

  - Investigate lazy evaluation and concurrency in Python using
    coroutines and stackless features.

  - Discuss possible syntactical integration of the new logic-related 

  - Come to a shared understanding of what can and cannot be imported
    from Oz

  - more if possible...

Gr�goire Dooms asks:

With respect to internet connectivity, is wavelan ok or do
you need wired access. What traffic/ports should be opened? I have to
