The main conference is from July 19th to July 22th, and the remaining days are used by its 7 affiliated workshops:

HoTT/UF: 6th Workshop on Homotopy Type Theory/Univalent Foundations
ITRS: 10th Workshop on Intersection Types and Related Systems
WPTE: 7th International Workshop on Rewriting Techniques for Program Transformations and Evaluation
UNIF: 35th International Workshop on Unification
LSFA: 16th Logical and Semantics Frameworks with Applications
IWC: 10th International Workshop on Confluence
IFIP WG 1.6: 24th meeting of the IFIP Working Group 1.6: Rewriting

Participation at TYPES and WiL 2021

Alejandro Díaz-Caro (Argentina), Malena Ivnisky (Argentina), Hernán Melgratti (Argentina), and Benoît Valiron (France) got their work “A finite-dimensional model for affine, linear quantum lambda calculi with general recursion” accepted for presentation at TYPES (27th International Conference on Types for Proofs and Programs) and at WiL (5th Workshop on Women in Logic).

Malena is presenting at both venues.

Philippe Flajolet
Computer scientist and mathematician.
Member of the Academy of Sciences,

left us ten years ago, on March 22, 2011.

All of us, who work in the fields of mathematical informatics, in France and abroad, we will not forget him.
Philippe’s work accompanies us every day in our research and shows us the way.


Several members of SINFIN, notably in the  ”Randomness and Analysis of Algorithms” team, worked hand by hand with Philippe Flajolet.
