CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

5th Annual International Conference on Applied Category Theory (ACT2022)
July 18--22, 2022
https://msp.cis.strath.ac.uk/act2022/

The 5th International Conference on Applied Category Theory will take
place at the University of Strathclyde from 18 to 22 July 2022. This
conference follows previous events at Cambridge (2021), MIT (2020),
Oxford (2019) and Leiden (2018).

HYBRID FORMAT

The conference will be fully hybrid, that is, it will be possible for
both the audience and presenters to participate remotely over Zoom, if
preferred.

REGISTRATION

We are asking in-person participants to register and pay a nominal
registration fee of GB£20 (about US$25) at the following link:
https://onlineshop.strath.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/science-faculty/computer-and-information-science/5th-international-conference-on-applied-category-theory-act-2022

If the fee is a financial burden for you, please contact us.

Online attendance will be free, although we ask that you nevertheless
register using the above link. This will allow us to keep track of the
numbers of participants, send out zoom links, etc.

The university's Covid regulations change unpredictably, and we still
don't know what the capacity of the room will be. In the event that we
are over-subscribed, we have some side rooms where participants can
watch the livestream together while still participating normally in
coffee breaks etc. The reason for the registration fee is to give us the
option to limit participation if it becomes necessary, and if that
happens then places will be first-come-first-served except for accepted
speakers.

Registration closes: Sunday 10 July

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

We have a budget for financial assistance for participants thanks to our
sponsors, for which priority will be given to accepted speakers, PhD
students and early career researchers. Please contact the organisers if
this would be useful to you, including information about your status,
and your estimated costs.

Financial support application deadline: Friday 10 June Anywhere on Earth
Financial support notification: Monday 13 June


TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION:

Central Glasgow has many hotels and Airbnbs, but can be busy in the
summer months. The conference will be held in the McCance building on
the Strathclyde campus:

The nearest hotel is the Premier Inn, about 30 seconds walk away.

Glasgow is well served by trains in the UK (e.g. London Euston is 4.5
hours away), and can be reached from the European continent via a
Eurostar train to London. Note that advance train tickets can be
considerably cheaper in the UK. Glasgow has an international airport,
and is also quite easily reachable from Edinburgh airport.

Please see https://msp.cis.strath.ac.uk/act2022/practical.html for more
information.


We look forward to welcoming you in Glasgow!
