[Note from moderator: posted on behalf of Emily Riehl]

We're delighted to announce the HoTTEST Summer School, which will take
place online everywhere in the world during the months of July and August
2022. Please help us spread the word to any students you might know who
would be interested in learning more about homotopy type theory, univalent
foundations, and computer proof assistants.

The school will run both synchronously and asynchronously. The lectures
will be delivered live (between 2:30-4pm UTC) and paired with various
tutorial sessions run by teaching assistants. The course will also feature
a discord-based all-hours Q&A and an online archive of all course
materials so that participants can follow along on their own schedule.

This school is for everyone and anyone with some familiarity with abstract
mathematics or theoretical computer science and an itching to learn about
homotopy type theory. Our goal is to make homotopy type theory accessible
to, and inclusive of, everyone who is interested, regardless of cultural
background, age, ability, formal education, ethnicity, gender identity, or
expression. We believe HoTT is for everyone, and are committed to
fostering a kind, inclusive environment. There are no costs involved in
participating.

The first part of the course will include parallel introductions to
homotopy type theory and formalization given by Ulrik Buchholtz, Martin
Hotzel Escardo, Dan Licata, Anders Mortberg, Paige North, Emily Riehl, and
Egbert Rijke. The summer school will then close with a series of colloquia
introducing more advanced topics and exciting areas for further study
delivered by Pierre Cagne, Favonia, Jonas Frey, Jon Sterling, and
Chaitanya Leena Subramaniam.  A team of teaching assistants which includes
Elisabeth Bonnevier, Chris Grossack, Tom de Jong, Jarl G. Taxeras Flaten,
Artem Gureev, Perry Hart, Astra Kolomatskaia, Amelia Liao, Jacob Neumann,
Johannes Schipp von Branitz, and Christopher Stough-Brown among others,
will lead problem sessions and assist students with exercises.

A central aim of the summer school is to build community among all of the
participants, irrespective of geography.  To further this, we will hold
some online social events (e.g. game nights) for the summer school staff
and participants.

More details about the course logistics and the scientific program will be
announced soon on the summer school website:

In the meanwhile, we invite everyone to join us on the summer school
Discord group to hang out and get to know one another:

If you would like to participate in some background surveys that will
shape the design of the curriculum, please register for the Discord by May
15th, but students are also welcome to join in at any time.

On behalf of the organizers,
Carlo Angiuli, Dan Christensen, Martin Hotzel Escardo, Chris Kapulkin, Dan
Licata, Emily Riehl, Egbert Rijke
