The International Category Theory Conference (CT) covers all areas of
pure and applied category theory. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to: higher dimensional categories, categorical logic,
applications of categories in algebra, topology, combinatorics, and
other areas of mathematics, applications of category theory to
computer science, physics and other mathematical sciences.
All those interested in category theory and its applications are welcome.
This year, the meeting took place immediately following the
AARMS summer school at Dalhousie University,
which features, among other things, a course on higher category theory
and categorical logic.
