Dear all

The 5th International Conference on Applied Category Theory will take place
at the University of Strathclyde from 18 to 22 July 2022. This conference
follows previous events at Cambridge (2021), MIT (2020), Oxford (2019) and
Leiden (2018).


HYBRID FORMAT

The conference will be fully hybrid, that is, it will be possible for both
the audience and presenters to participate remotely over Zoom, if preferred.

REGISTRATION

We are asking in-person participants to register and pay a nominal
registration fee of GB£20 (about US$25) at the following link:

https://onlineshop.strath.ac.uk/conferences-and-events/science-faculty/computer-and-information-science/5th-international-conference-on-applied-category-theory-act-2022


If the fee is a financial burden for you, please contact us.

Online attendance will be free, although we ask that you nevertheless
register using the above link. This will allow us to keep track of the
numbers of participants, send out zoom links, etc.

The university's covid regulations change unpredictably, and we still don't
know what the capacity of the room will be. In the event that we are
over-subscribed, we have some side rooms where participants can watch the
livestream together while still participating normally in coffee breaks
etc. The reason for the registration fee is to give us the option to limit
participation if it becomes necessary, and if that happens then places will
be first-come-first-served except for accepted speakers.


FINANCIAL SUPPORT

We have a budget for financial assistance for participants thanks to our
sponsors, for which priority will be given to accepted speakers, PhD
students and early career researchers. Please contact the organisers if
this would be useful to you, including information about your status, and
your estimated costs.

Financial support application deadline: Friday 10 June 2022 Anywhere on
Earth

Financial support notification: Monday 13 June 2022


TRAVEL AND ACCOMMODATION:

Central Glasgow has many hotels and Airbnbs, but can be busy in the summer
months. The conference will be held in the McCance building on the
Strathclyde campus:

The nearest hotel is the Premier Inn, about 30 seconds walk away.


Glasgow is well served by trains in the UK (e.g. London Euston is 4.5 hours
away), and can be reached from the European continent via a Eurostar train
to London. Note that advance train tickets can be considerably cheaper in
the UK. Glasgow has an international airport, and is also quite easily
reachable from Edinburgh airport.


We look forward to welcoming you in Glasgow!
