We are pleased to announce the

School on Univalent Mathematics 2022,

to be held at the Palazzone di Cortona
Cortona, Italy, July 17-23, 2022

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, we aim to introduce newcomers to the ideas of Univalent
Foundations and mathematics therein, and to the formalization of
mathematics in UniMath (

Participants will receive an introduction to Univalent Foundations and
to mathematics in those foundations. In the accompanying problem
sessions, they will formalize pieces of univalent mathematics in the
UniMath library.

Participants should be interested in mathematics and the use of
computers for mathematical reasoning. Participants do not need to have
prior knowledge of logic, Coq, or Univalent Foundations.
