Hyperdoctrines can be seen as an abstract and algebraic approach to proof theory using indexed categories or fibrations. In this talk, I will explain some of the possible definitions and the motivation behind them. I will discuss the interpretation of equality and the necessity of requirements like the Beck-Chevalley condition using examples from the literature. I hope to see many of you there.
