Slides from the CCT Workshop

Hello world and welcome all to the introductory post on the Applied Category Theory Blog.

There won’t be any new content in this post, but I wanted to go ahead and put up the slides from our workshop last week. Thanks again to all of the participants for making the workshop such a success!

As you can probably tell, the website here is still under construction, but we hope that over time it will become a one-stop-shop for all things applied category theory. If you would like to help out building up the content for the site, or just to write a quick blog post, email one of the editors listed on the Contact page.

Later this month we here at NIST will be writing up a report based on the workshop. Once that is available I will ping the mailing list and Google Group, and advertise it and this site more widely.

Without further ado, here are the slides from the workshop:

Computational Category Theory Workshop – Sept. 28-29 – Abstracts

Computational Category Theory Workshop – Sept. 28-29 – Schedule

Spencer Breiner – Structural Mathematics for Complex Systems

David Spivak – Operadics – The mathematics of modular design

Peter Gates – Data Landscaping to Support Coordination at Scale

Ryan Wisnesky – The Functorial Data Model

Henson Graves – Axiomatic Category Theory for Knowledge Representation

Bob Rosebrugh – Implementing database design (and manipulation) categorically

Rad Balu – Horn Clause Logic for Subatomics

Ralph Wojtowicz – A Categorical Approach to Knowledge Management

Jason Morton – An approach to computational category theory


Discussions at CCT

We just officially ended the inaugural Computational Category Theory workshop at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). During the workshop the participants had five discussions, on

  • algorithms for category theory,
  • data structures for category theory,
  • applied category theory (ACT),
  • building the ACT community,
  • and open problems in the field.

Below, I’ve written up a partial summary of these discussions.
