### Categories in Chemistry, Computing, and Social Networks

#### Posted by John Baez

This article does two things:

- John Baez, Simon Cho, Daniel Cicala, Nina Otter, and Valeria de Paiva, Applied category theory in chemistry, computing, and social networks,
*Notices of the American Mathematical Society*, February 2022.

It urges you — or your friends, or students — to apply for our *free* summer school in applied category theory run by the American Mathematical Society. It’s also a quick intro to some key ideas in applied category theory!

Applications are due Tuesday 2022 February 15 at 11:59 Eastern Time — go here for details. If you get in, you’ll get an all-expenses-paid trip to a conference center in upstate New York for a week in the summer. There will be a pool, bocci, lakes with canoes, woods to hike around in, campfires at night… and also whiteboards, meeting rooms, and coffee available 24 hours a day.

You can work with me on categories in chemistry, Nina on categories in the study of social networks, or Valeria on categories applied to concepts from computer science, like lenses.
