Description

Since their introduction 50 years ago, the notions of infinity-algebras (Stasheff), operads (May), model categories (Quillen), and higher categories (Boardman-Vogt) gave rise to powerful tools which made possible the resolution of open problems and prompted revolutions in many domains like algebraic topology (rational homotopy theory, faithful algebraic invariants of the homotopy type of spaces), deformation theory (formality theorems, formal moduli problems), and mathematical physics (quantisation of Poisson manifolds, quantum field theories), to name but a few. This theory of higher structures using operadic calculus is currently under rapid development and there is a need today to provide the community with a modern state of the art; this is the main goal of the present workshop, which will be accessible to a wide audience.
