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 Friday noon, and departure time Thursday after breakfast. There are frequent suburban trains (line S8) from airport and downtown Munich to Herrsching. From the train station in Herrsching it is an easy walk to the workshop site; 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 Chuangjie Xu ( Deadline for applications: 31st May 2019. Applicants will be notified by 28th June 2019.

Financial support

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.
