ScotCats 10: A HoTT-Date With Thorsten Altenkirch

Wednesday 4 March 2015.
Department of Computer and Information Sciences.

Dr Thorsten Altenkirch is visiting the MSP group during the week of March 2, and we thought we would have an afternoon of talks in his honour on Wednesday 4 March. Please feel free to attend and forward this to anyone else who might be interested. If you would like to give a talk, we could create a few spots too. Please get in touch ASAP if you wish to i) attend; ii) give a talk; and/or iii) stay for dinner. This will help us to cater appropriately.

This meeting is part of the Scottish Category Theory Seminar series.
