The goal of this line of work is to find algebraic an formulations ofessentially algebraic formulation of dependent type theory . This automatically provides free models and quotients. The syntax will then be the initial model.

Rijke’s E-systems are a generalization of Voevodsky’s B-systems.

This line of research should be compared with Dybjer’s categories with families which is a generalized algebraic theory; see categorical model of dependent types for more information.
