The course will be taught using Zoom.
The Zoom address will be disseminated through Brightspace. Therefore, if you want to participate in the course, make sure that you are registered there.
Brightspace also will contain videos for the course, and it will be used to send email and keep track of results.
Freek will use the first five weeks to teach:
using the schedule:
31 August  introduction & propositional logic  chapter 1 
7 September  simple type theory & inductive types  chapters 2 & 3 
14 September  predicate logic & dependent types  chapters 4 & 6 
21 September  secondorder logic & polymorphic types  chapters 7 & 8 
28 September  program extraction & inhabitation  chapters 5 & 9 
There will be a
which you can do either in the ProofWeb server (using an ancient version of Coq), as well as in Coq installed on your own machine. For this here is a
Finishing this practicum is obligatory to be able to pass the course, but there will not be a grade for it. The first person to get allgreen traffic lights on the Coq practicum in the ProofWeb server will win a small price.
Then Herman will use the next three weeks to teach part of:
using the schedule:
5 October  principal types and type checking  sections 4.14.3, 6.4 slides, exercises, answers 
12 October  ChurchRosser property  section 3.1 slides, exercises, answers 
19 October  normalization of λ→ and λ2  sections 4.4, 5.6 slides, exercises, answers 
This concludes the first half of the course.
As an experiment we will have the exam not at the end of the course but halfway through. Therefore the subject of the exam will be just the lectures by Freek and Herman, and not the topic of the reading group.
The dates of the exam will be:
2 November  two hour exam on the theory  
34 November  individual ten minute oral exam as a followup 
The exam will be at home without supervision and will be open book/open Coq session. Each student will get a different selection from a larger set of exercises. The answers will have to be submitted through Brightspace as a scan or digital photos.
The exam will be followed by a ten minute oral the days after.
See at the end of this web page for some material to practise for the exam, like old exams from last years.
In the second half of the course we read a recent research paper, together with a reading list that leads up to this paper.
The topic of the paper this year will be a formal semantics for the Rust programming language, and its formalization in Coq. One of the authors of the paper is Robbert, one of the teachers of the course. The paper is too advanced to fully understand at the level of the course, but we will work on the most important elements.
The presentations are by the students in pairs (and one paper by three students). These presentations are 45 minutes, and should contain both examples, as well as the gist of the proofs in the paper. It is more important to explain the important points of the paper well, then to cover everything in full detail.
The 7 papers that will be presented in 12 presentations are:
For help with the first six papers it is best to go to Jules, and about the last paper it is best to ask Robbert.
The presentations will be through the standard Zoom channel on Monday at 08:30 (one presentation per meeting) and on Thursday, also at 08:30 (two presentations per meeting). The schedule for the presentations is:
Mon 23 November  1: Rust  Niek Janssen + Sander Karsten slides

Each student has to do a small Coq project. This project can be chosen from
but if students have a suggestion for an interesting project that they want to do, that is also allowed.
The deadline for the Coq project will be exactly two weeks after the last presentation in the reading group ends.
