- Workshop [1]

Organiser(s):

Hongyi Chu & Bruno Stonek
Date:

Mon, 2020-08-17 09:00 - Fri, 2020-08-21 17:00 The workshop will take place remotely. More information and the program will follow.

The quest for solid foundations for $\infty$-categories started several decades ago, but from the mid-2000s there have been spectacular developments which excitingly accelerated the pace of progress. This workshop will focus on these objects, both in their foundations and in the applications to different fields of mathematics. The workshop consists of 4 minicourses on $\infty$-categories and on related topics which have benefited substantially from the $\infty$-categorical viewpoint.

We think this workshop will prove interesting for advanced Master students, PhD students, seasoned mathematicians from other areas who want to learn some new $\infty$-categorical approaches, and more generally for anybody interested in new developments with $\infty$-categories.

Bergner, Julie [5] (University of Virginia) - Models for homotopical higher categories
