### Abstract

Introduction "Geometry and Concurrency" is not yet a well-established domain of research, but is rather made of a collection of seemingly related techniques, algorithms and formalizations, coming from different application areas, accumulated over a long period of time. There is currently a certain amount of effort made for unifying these (in particular see the article (Gunawardena, 1994)), following the workshop "New Connections between Computer Science and Mathematics" held at the Newton Institute in Cambridge, England in November 1995 (and sponsored by HP/BRIMS). More recently, the first workshop on the very same subject has been held in Aalborg, Denmark (see http://www.math.auc.dk/~raussen/admin/workshop/workshop.html where the articles of this issue, among others, have been first sketched. But what is "Geometry and Concurrency" composed of then? It is an area of research made of techniques which use geometrical reasoning for describing and solving problems
