You can now submit a paper if you want to give a talk here:
• 6th Annual International Conference on Applied Category Theory (ACT2023), University of Maryland, July 31 — August 4, 2023
The Sixth International Conference on Applied Category Theory will take place at the University of Maryland from 31 July to 4 August 2023, preceded by the Adjoint School 2023 from 24 to 28 July. This event will be hybrid.
This conference follows previous events at Strathclyde (UK), Cambridge (UK), Cambridge (MA), Oxford (UK) and Leiden (NL). Applied category theory is important to a growing community of researchers who study computer science, logic, engineering, physics, biology, chemistry, social science, systems, linguistics and other subjects using category-theoretic tools. The background and experience of our members is as varied as the systems being studied. The goal of the Applied Category Theory conference series is to bring researchers together, strengthen the applied category theory community, disseminate the latest results, and facilitate further development of the field.
We accept submissions in English of original research papers, talks about work accepted/ submitted/published elsewhere, and demonstrations of relevant software. Accepted original research papers will be published in a proceedings volume. The conference will include an industry showcase event and community meeting. We particularly encourage people from underrepresented groups to submit their work and the organizers are committed to non-discrimination, equity, and inclusion.
Original research papers intended for conference proceedings should present original, high-quality work in the style of a computer science conference paper (up to 12 pages, not counting the bibliography; more detailed parts of proofs may be included in an appendix for the convenience of the reviewers). Please use the EPTCS style files available at
Such submissions should not be an abridged version of an existing journal article although pre-submission arXiv preprints are permitted. These submissions will be adjudicated for both a talk and publication in the conference proceedings.
The following dates are all in 2023, and Anywhere On Earth.
• Submission Deadline: Wednesday 3 May
• Author Notification: Wednesday 7 June
• Camera-ready version due: Tuesday 27 June
• Conference begins: 31 July

These days, “applied” comes usually with “code”. Are there any public repositories or project ideas to learn new tricks?
I am a senior Software and Data Engineer.
There are many public repositories of code connected to applied category theory, and many interesting projects to work on. Here’s one link to a bunch of repositories:
My own work (with collaborators who can program!) using this software is explained here:
• John Baez, Xiaoyan Li, Sophie Libkind, Nathaniel D. Osgood and Eric Redekopp, A categorical framework for modeling with stock and flow diagrams.
and this paper has links to our software, created with AlgebraicJulia.
I will be blogging about this paper pretty soon.
Thank you very much
