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.
LECTURERS AND COURSES
§ Course 1: Hugo Herbelin: Introduction to lambda calculus & type theory
§ Course 2: Jesper Cockx: 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.
