Highlights of the Year
We successfully organised the thematic trimester Semantics of Proofs and Certified Mathematics (IHP, April-July 2014). The trimester attracted over two hundred participants altogether (with about 60 “resident” participants staying a month or more), hosted 5 special workshops, as well as other related regevents such as Types, MAP (Mathematics, Algorithms, and Proofs). It was the first thematic trimester in the history of IHP to feature computer science prominently. There was a kick-off day on April 22, with talks of Georges Gonthier, Thomas Hales, Xavier Leroy, and Vladimir Voevodsky, with the presence of some science journalists. During the trimester, the Bourbaki Seminar devoted an afternoon (June 21) to these themes, with talks of Thomas Hales and Thierry Coquand.
Shortly before, Coq has received the Software System Award 2013 from the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Hugo Herbelin is one of the recipients of this prize.
