Autumn school "Proof and Computation", 16th to 22nd September 2018
An international autumn school "Proof and Computation" will be held
from 16th to 22nd September 2018 at
Aurachhof in Fischbachau near Munich. Its aim is to bring
together young researchers in the field of Foundations of Mathematics,
Computer Science and Philosophy.

- Constructive Mathematics and Type Theory
- Computation in Higher Types
- Extraction of Programs from Proofs
- Ulrich Berger on Program Extraction from Proofs
- Martin Escardo on Continuity in Constructive Analysis
- Graham Leigh on Truth Theories
- Thomas Powell on Proof Mining
- Michael Rathjen on Constructive Set Theory and Type Theory
- Daniel Wessel on Constructive Algebra

Wednesday evening 20:00 there will be a round table on "From Proof and
Computation to Innovation - Chances and Risks of Algorithms"
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 Sunday 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
Xu (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for applications: 30th May 2018.
Applicants will be notified by 30th June 2018.
The workshop is supported by the
Udo Keller Stiftung (Hamburg), the CID (Computing with Infinite
Data) programme of the European Commission and a JSPS core-to-core
project. Successful applicants will be offered full-board
accommodation 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.
