Autumn school "Proof and Computation", 20th to 26th September 2020

An international autumn school "Proof and Computation" will be held from 20th to 26th September 2020 at Aurachhof in Fischbachau near Munich. Its aim is to bring together young researchers in the fields of Foundations of Mathematics, Computer Science and Philosophy.


Unfortunately because of the present situation we had to cancel the event. More precisely, it will be shifted to September 12-18, 2021 and held at Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft in Herrsching near Munich. It will be announced later when applications are invited.

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 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 (e.g. a self-introduction including research interests and motivation) should be sent to Chuangjie Xu ( Students are required to provide a letter of recommendation, preferably from the thesis adviser. Deadline for applications: 30th May 2020. Applicants will be notified by 20th June 2020.

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.
