Working groups

There will be an opportunity to form ad-hoc groups working on specific projects, but also to discuss in more general terms the vision of constructing correct programs from proofs.

How to get there

The default arrival time is Monday afternoon, and departure time Saturday after breakfast. There are frequent direct trains from Munich Hauptbahnhof, departing (at tracks 27-36, Bayerische Oberlandbahn BOB in the direction to Bayerischzell) for instance 15:05, 16:05, 17:05 with arrival in Fischbachau at 16:13, 17:13, 18:13. From the train station in Fischbachau it is an easy 200 meter walk to Aurachhof; see its website for directions.


Graduate or PhD students and young postdoctoral researches are invited to apply. Applications must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation, preferably from the thesis adviser, and should be sent to Kenji Miyamoto. Deadline for applications: 30th May 2016. Applicants will be notified by 30th June 2016.

Financial support

The workshop is supported by the Udo Keller Stiftung (Hamburg), the CORCON (PIRSES-GA-2013-612638, Correctness by Construction) programme of the European Commission and a JSPS core-to-core project. Successful applicants will be offered full-board accommodation (excluding drinks by the meals) for the days of the autumn school. There are no funds, however, to reimburse travel or further expenses, which successful applicants will have to cover otherwise.
