Edwin Brady — Dependent Types in the Idris Programming Language
University of St. Andrews

Ron Garcia — Gradual Typing and Abstract Interpretation
University of British Columbia

Robert Harper — Programming Languages Background
Carnegie Mellon University

The school has a long and successful tradition (sponsored by the NSF,
ACM SIGPLAN, and industry). It covers current research in the theory and
practice of programming languages. Material is presented at a tutorial
level that will help graduate students and researchers from academia or
industry understand the critical issues and open problems confronting
the field. Prerequisites are an elementary knowledge of logic and
mathematics, as covered in undergraduate classes on discrete
mathematics, and some knowledge of programming languages at the level of
an undergraduate survey course.

A new feature this year is the option for students to attend a Review
session from June 23rd to 25th ? the three days before the summer school
officially begins. The review will cover operational semantics, type
systems, and basic proof techniques. More information is available at
the above website.

We hope you can join us for this excellent program!
