11 - 15 December 2017, School & Workshop on Univalent Mathematics, Birmingham, England

Date: 11 - 15 December 2017
Location: Birmingham, England

Univalent Type Theory is an emerging field of mathematics that studies a fruitful relationship between homotopy theory and (dependent) type theory. This relation plays a crucial role in Voevodsky's program of Univalent Foundations, a new approach to foundations of mathematics, based on ideas from homotopy theory, such as the Univalence Principle.

The UniMath library is a large repository of computer-checked mathematics, developed from the univalent viewpoint. The workshop will give many young researchers an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the UniMath library and become contributors. During the school/workshop, the participants will be working either individually or in small groups, mentored by experienced UniMath developers. The problems will be designed to be of practical importance in the development of the UniMath library as well as of pedagogical value to participants.
