24th International Conference on Types for Proofs and Programs, TYPES 2018


EUTYPES Cost Action CA15123 meeting

Braga, Portugal, 18 – 21 June 2018


The TYPES meetings are a forum to present new and on-going work in all aspects of type theory and its applications, especially in formalized and computer assisted reasoning and computer programming.

The TYPES areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • foundations of type theory and constructive mathematics;
  • applications of type theory;
  • dependently typed programming;
  • industrial uses of type theory technology;
  • meta-theoretic studies of type systems;
  • proof assistants and proof technology;
  • automation in computer-assisted reasoning;
  • links between type theory and functional programming;
  • formalizing mathematics using type theory.

We encourage talks proposing new ways of applying type theory. In the spirit of workshops, talks may be based on newly published papers, work submitted for publication, but also work in progress.

The EUTypes Cost Action CA15123 ( focuses on the same research topics as TYPES and partially sponsors the TYPES Conference: Part of the programme is organised under the auspices of EUTypes.

We solicit contributed talks. Selection of those will be based on extended abstracts/short papers of 2 pp formatted with easychair.cls. The submission site is

Important dates:

  • submission of 2 pp abstract: 5 March 2018   12 March 2018
  • notification of acceptance/rejection: 13 April 2018   20 April 2018
  • camera-ready version of abstract: 7 May 2018   14 May 2018


Camera-ready versions of the accepted contributions will be published in an informal book of abstracts for distribution at the workshop.


Similarly to TYPES 2011 and TYPES 2013-2017, a post-proceedings volume will published in the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs) series. Submission to that volume will be open to everyone. Tentative submission deadline: September 2018.

The TYPES meetings from 1990 to 2008 were annual workshops of a
sequence of five EU funded networking projects. From 2009 to 2015,
TYPES has been run as an independent conference series. From 2016,
TYPES is partially supported by COST Action EUTypes CA15123. Previous
TYPES meetings were held in Antibes (1990), Edinburgh (1991), Båstad
(1992), Nijmegen (1993), Båstad (1994), Torino (1995), Aussois (1996),
Kloster Irsee (1998), Lökeberg (1999), Durham (2000), Berg en Dal near
Nijmegen (2002), Torino (2003), Jouy-en-Josas near Paris (2004),
Nottingham (2006), Cividale del Friuli (2007), Torino (2008), Aussois
(2009), Warsaw (2010), Bergen (2011), Toulouse (2013), Paris (2014),
Tallinn (2015), Novi Sad (2016), Budapest (2017).
