     21st Midlands Graduate School in the Foundations of Computing Science
                                                       MGS 21
                                       12-16 April 2021, virtually


The annual Midlands Graduate School in the Foundations of Computing
Science (MGS) offers an intensive programme of lectures on the
mathematical foundations of computing. It addresses first of all PhD
students in their first or second year, but is open to anyone
interested in its topics, from academia to industry and around the
world. The MGS has been run since 1999 and is hosted alternately by
the Universities of Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield.
MGS 21 is its 21st incarnation. Information about previous events can
be found at the MGS web site


MGS 21 consists of eight courses, each with four or five hours of
lectures and a similar number of exercise sessions. Three courses are
introductory; one is given by an invited lecturer. These should be
attended by all participants. The remaining more advanced courses
should be selected based on interest. MGS 21 aims at a mix of
livestreamed and prerecorded lectures and livestreamed exercise
sessions, with additional social online events.

Monads and Interactions
  Tarmo Uustalu, Reykjavik

Introductory courses:

Category Theory
  Jacopo Emmenegger, Birmingham
