TICT2020 — Topics in Category Theory: A Spring School
11 Mar 2020 - 13 Mar 2020 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This Spring School will gather together PhD students and junior researchers who use category-theoretic ideas or techniques in their research. It will provide a forum to learn about important themes in contemporary category theory, both from experts and from each other. Three invited speakers will each present a three-hour mini-course, accessible to non-specialists, introducing an area of active research. There will also be short talks contributed by PhD students and postdocs, and a poster session. The focus of the Spring School is on aspects of pure category theory as they interact with research in other areas of algebra, geometry, topology and logic. Any "categorical thinker" - that is, any mathematician whose work makes use of categorical ideas - is welcome to participate.
Category Theory, Grothendieck Toposes, Topos Theory, Higher Category Theory, Model Categories, Derived and Triangulated Categories

YRC — Young Researchers in Combinatorics
19 Jul 2020 - 25 Jul 2020 • Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The Young Researchers in Combinatorics workshop is aimed at PhD students and early-career academics working in Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics and related fields. By building an environment without senior researchers, we hope the participants will feel free to contribute their ideas openly, thus preparing them to undertake their own research projects. The workshop consists mostly of working sessions in which participants collaborate on research problems, and a limited number of talks and lectures. We aim to host around 10 invited participants and about 25 PhD students for a week between 19 and 25 July 2020 at ICMS Edinburgh. Accommodation and refreshments are provided for all participants, as well as a conference dinner. A registration fee of 100GBP is payable by all non-invited participants. We expect to start accepting applications in October 2019.
