Workshop on Derivators

Dates and Location

  • A workshop on Derivators and related topics in homotopy theory will be held at the University of Regensburg during April 9-12, 2019.
  • Talks will be held in Lecture Hall H 31, registration and coffee breaks in Seminar Room M 103. See here for the Campus map

Aims and Scope

The aim of the Workshop will be to bring together researchers in the theory of derivators and its applications and discuss developments in this research area. The Workshop will have both lecture series and invited talks, as well as opportunities for contributed talks by the participants. This Workshop continues a series of regular workshops and schools on derivators previously held in Prague (2016), Barcelona (2015), and Freiburg (2014).
