School and Workshop on Univalent Mathematics
sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation
December 11-15, 2017, Birmingham, United Kingdom.
Univalent Type Theory is an emerging field of mathematics that studies
a fruitful relationship between homotopy theory and (dependent) type
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.
It is freely available for everyone, as an open-source project,
from the web.
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.
