FOMUS - Foundations of Mathematics: Univalent Foundations and Set Theory 
- What are Criteria for Suitable Foundations of Mathematic*
Bielefeld, Germany | July 18-23, 2016

It is our pleasure to announce the forthcoming workshop titled "FOMUS - 
Foundations of Mathematics: Univalent Foundations and Set Theory", to be 
held at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research of Bielefeld 
University from the 18th to the 23rd of July. At this conference 
approximately 80 graduate students, junior researchers and leading 
experts will gather in order to investigate and discuss suitable 
foundations for mathematics and their qualifying criteria, with an 
emphasis on Homotopy Type Theory/Univalent Foundations and Set Theory. 
This interdisciplinary workshop, designed as a hybrid between summer 
school and research conference, is aimed at students and researchers 
from the fields of mathematics, philosophy and computer science.
