       Summer School on Types for Programming and Verification


                  Ohrid, Macedonia, 30 August – 4 September 2019




                        CALL FOR APPLICATIONS




Types are pervasive in programming and information technology. A type

defines a formal interface between software components, allowing the

automatic verification of their connections, and greatly enhancing the

robustness and reliability of computations and communications. In rich

dependent type theories, the full functional specification of a

program can be expressed as a type. Type systems have rapidly evolved

over the past years, becoming more sophisticated, capturing new

aspects of the behaviour of programs and the dynamics of their



The aim of this summer school is to provide advanced training,

especially to PhD students and early-career researchers, in all

aspects of the theory and practice of type theory and applications.




§  Course 1: Hugo Herbelin: Introduction to lambda calculus & type theory


§  Course 2: Jesper Coeckx: Correct-by-construction programming in Agda


§  Course 3 : Yves Bertot: Introductory course on Coq/Gallina


§  Course 4 : Xavier Leroy: Proving the correctness of a compiler


§  Course 5: Nicolai Kraus: Introduction to homotopy type theory





The capacity of the summer school is up to 40 students. 


§  Accommodation, full board (i.e., including all meals): 5 nights @ €35 = € 175. Extra nights cost also €35.


A maximum of 30 students (PhD students / early-career researchers) from countries involved in EUTYPES can receive a grant from the COST action to partially cover their costs.
