Homotopy Type Theory and Univalent Mathematics are emerging fields of mathematics that study 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. It is freely available for everyone, as an open-source project, from the web. The School will give many young researchers an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the UniMath library and become contributors.
Participants will receive an introduction to Univalent Foundations and to Mathematics in those foundations, by leading experts in the field. In the accompanying problem sessions, participants will formalize pieces of Univalent Mathematics in the UniMath library.
To participate, please fill out the application form. The deadline for application is April 30. Applicants will be notified whether they are admitted or not to the School within one week after the deadline. The selected participants are requested to confirm their attendance and pay a fee of 80.00€. This fee pays for the School, accommodation during the School, and breakfast and lunches.
