Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Posted by John Baez

The first International Conference on Homotopy Type Theory, HoTT 2019, will take place from August 12th to 17th, 2019 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA. Here is the organizers’ announcement:

The invited speakers will be:

  • Ulrik Buchholtz (TU Darmstadt, Germany)

Submissions of contributed talks will open in January and conclude in March; registration will open sometime in the spring.

There will also be an associated Homotopy Type Theory Summer School in the preceding week, August 7th to 10th.

The topics and instructors are:

  • Cubical methods: Anders Mortberg
  • Formalization in Agda: Guillaume Brunerie
  • Formalization in Coq: Kristina Sojakova

We expect some funding to be available for students to attend the summer school and conference.

Looking forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh!
