We are pleased to announce the

Second School and Workshop on Univalent Mathematics,

to be held at the University of Birmingham (UK),
April 1-5, 2019
(https://unimath.github.io/bham2019)

Overview
========
Homotopy 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. It is based on the computer proof assistant Coq.

In this school and workshop, we aim to introduce newcomers to the ideas of Univalent Foundations and mathematics therein, and to formalizing mathematics in a computer proof assistant based on Univalent Foundations.

Format
=======
We will have two tracks:
- Beginners track
- Advanced track: suitable for participants with some experience in Univalent Foundations and the proof assistant Coq.

In the beginners track, you will receive an introduction to Univalent Foundations and to mathematics in those foundations, by leading experts in the field. In the accompanying problem sessions, you will formalize pieces of univalent mathematics in the UniMath library. In the advanced track, you will work, in a small group, on formalizing a specific topic in UniMath, guided by an expert in univalent mathematics. Your code will become part of the UniMath library.

Application and funding
=======================
