The Category Theory "Octoberfest" is an annual workshop, traditionally held in October, bringing together researchers in category theory and its applications.

This year's meeting was hosted in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada.

There was an informal welcome reception on Friday, October 22, from 5:30-8, in room 319 of the Chase building. The scientific program started on October 23, and consisted of one and a half days of research talks.

Post Conference

Thanks to all the speakers and participants for making this a successful workshop. Many speakers have agreed to make copies of their slides available. If you are a speaker and haven't yet sent your slides, you are still welcome to do so and I will post them.


Registration is no longer available. The registration fee was $30 to cover workshop costs. The fee was waived for students and researchers without grant support.
