2021 CMU HoTT Graduate Student Workshop

Friday, February 26th (via zoom)
This event is a gathering of graduate students, to exchange ideas related to homotopy type theory, logic, and category theory. The workshop will consist of a series of presentations, with opportunities for discussion.  This event is meant to be friendly and informal, and talks on work in progress and unfinished ideas are welcome.   For more information, please visit the workshop website or contact Jonas Frey.

Geometry in Modal Homotopy Type Theory

March 11-15, 2019

Homotopy Type Theory (HoTT) is one of the tools to reason within a higher topos. The recent extensions of HoTT by Modalities has led to stronger relations to the use of higher toposes in Topology, Differential Geometry and Algebraic Geometry. This workshop is about the development of Modal HoTT and its applications to Geometry.
