Reimagining the Foundations of Algebraic Topology
Month: April 2014
Date: April 7--11
Name: Reimagining the Foundations of Algebraic Topology
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
Recent innovations in higher category theory have unlocked the potential to reimagine the basic tools and constructions in algebraic topology. This workshop will explore the interplay between these higher and $\infty$-categorical techniques with classical algebraic topology, playing each off of the other and returning the field to conceptual, geometrical intuition.
