Homotopy Type Theory is a new area of research, combining ideas from homotopy theory (a branch of topology) and dependent type theory (a formal system studied in mathematical logic and theoretical computer science). It is based on the realization that the logical notion of equality between two objects can carry more information beyond its truth value and as such may resemble the notion of homotopy between two continuous maps. The workshop will consist of mini-courses in the mornings and research-level talks (invited and contributed) in the afternoons. As such, it is meant as a venue for both the experts in the field and researchers from related areas interested in learning more about Homotopy Type Theory.
