Programme Participants

Organising Committee:
NATO ASI directors: JPC Greenlees (Sheffield), IB Zhukov (St Petersburg)
Other organisers: P Goerss (Northwestern), JF Jardine (Western Ontario), F Morel (Jussieu), VP Snaith (Southampton)

Theme: Axiomatic, enriched and motivic homotopy theory, and its recent applications in topology, geometry, algebraic K theory and arithmetic. This will include localization, the homotopy theory of diagrams, obstruction theory for structured ring spectra, homotopy theory of algebraic theories, topological cyclic cohomology, abstract and simplicial homotopy theory, operads, A1 homotopy theory, mixed motives, algebraic cobordism, algebraic K theory and the algebra of structured spectra.

Location and Costs: The conference will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court. The workshop package costs £715 and includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 8 September until breakfast on Saturday 21 September 2002, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place.
