Higher Algebras and Lie-infinity Homotopy Theory

Venue: Mathematics Research Unit, University of Luxembourg

Dates: June 25-28, 2013

Description: Homotopy invariant notions of algebraic and geometric objects have been receiving more and more attention in the past years, with many new ideas providing a fruitful interplay between, for instance, homotopical algebra for algebras and operads, higher Lie algebroids, and theory of higher categories. The goal of this workshop is to explore some recent progress in these areas. In addition to research reports, the workshop will include a mini-course on Lie-infinity methods in rational homotopy theory, a recurring topic implicitly present at the core of all these areas.
