Description

This Spring School will gather together PhD students and junior researchers who use category-theoretic ideas or techniques in their research. It will provide a forum to learn about important themes in contemporary category theory, both from experts and from each other.

Three invited speakers will each present a three-hour mini-course, accessible to non-specialists, introducing an area of active research. There will also be short talks contributed by PhD students and postdocs, and a poster session.

The focus of the Spring School is on aspects of pure category theory as they interact with research in other areas of algebra, geometry, topology and logic. Any "categorical thinker" - that is, any mathematician whose work makes use of categorical ideas - is welcome to participate.
