This workshop will explore developments in string theory and quantum field theory related to categorification and the topology of knots and 3-manifolds. Topics of interest include: BPS states and their relation to categorified knot invariants, connections with contact homology and augmentation varieties, topological recursion, the 3d-3d correspondence, and Witten's approach to Khovanov homology.
