Conference for "Young researchers in homotopy theory and categorical structures"
February 13-15, 2017


The aim of this mini-conference is to bring together young researchers working in the field of homotopy theory and/or categorical structures. It should provide an opportunity for exchange of ideas, presentation of ongoing research, and interaction with experts. In addition to seven invited talks, there will also be several contributed talks. Furthermore, there will be a series of very short talks, aka "gong show". We encourage early career-stage participants to submit a tentative abstract for a contributed and/or for a very short talk.
