CaCS 2022 will be the second Categories and Companions Symposium, centered on connecting PhD students with an interest in category theory. Category theory is a branch of mathematics which seeks to understand abstract mathematical structures and the relationships between them. Originating in investigations of connections between algebra and topology, category theory has a diverse range of applications, including in pure mathematics, the foundations of mathematics and mathematical logic, computer science, linguistics, and physics.

This symposium will provide an opportunity for PhD students interested in category theory to meet and learn from each other, establishing new research relationships and opportunities for collaboration. It will also provide the opportunity for participants to create a mental inventory of who is doing what and where, which will foster a sense of community among the new generation of researchers.

Invited Speakers:
Dirk Hofmann (University of Aveiro)
Marcy Robertson (University of Melbourne)
Christina Vasilakopoulou (University of Patras)
Dominic Verity (Macquarie University)
