FOMUS – Foundations of Mathematics: Univalent Foundations and Set Theory – What are Criteria for Suitable Foundations of Mathematics?
Bielefeld, Germany | July 18-23, 2016
It is our pleasure to announce the forthcoming workshop titled “FOMUS – Foundations of Mathematics: Univalent Foundations and Set Theory”, to be held at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research of Bielefeld University from the 18th to the 23rd of July. At this conference approximately 80 graduate students, junior researchers and leading experts will gather in order to investigate and discuss suitable foundations for mathematics and their qualifying criteria, with an emphasis on Homotopy Type Theory/Univalent Foundations and Set Theory. This interdisciplinary workshop, designed as a hybrid between summer school and research conference, is aimed at students and researchers from the fields of mathematics, philosophy and computer science.
