Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Homotopy Theory and Higher Categories in Barcelona

Posted by John Baez

In Barcelona there will be a year-long program on homotopy theory and higher categories:

In addition to a weekly seminar throughout the year, the following events are scheduled:

  • November 5 to 14, 2007: Workshop on Derived Categories.
  • February 4 to 14, 2008: Advanced Course on Simplicial Methods in Higher Categories.
  • February 18 to 22, 2008: Workshop on Algebra and Geometry of Groups and Classifying Spaces.
  • April 1 to 5, 2008: Workshop on Topological and Differentiable Stacks.
  • June 16 to 20, 2008: Workshop on Categorical Groups.
  • June 30 to July 5, 2008: HOCAT 2008, a conference on Homotopy Structures in Geometry and Algebra; Derived Categories, Higher Categories.

Participants are welcome to any of these activities. Longer-term visits are partially constrained by office space availability at the CRM.

Please contact the coordinators of each activity or the CRM Secretariat if you need more information. Updated details about activities and visitors can be found on the HOCAT website.

Re: Homotopy Theory and Higher Categories in Barcelona

I’ve been invited to speak at the Workshop on 2-Groups — whoops, I mean “categorical groups” — during June 16-20, and perhaps also the main conference during June 30-July 5. With luck I may even spend more time in Barcelona.

So, I hope to see some of you there!
