The Second Morgan-Phoa Mathematics Workshop
Dates: Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26 November 2008
Venues: Tuesday at Macquarie University;
Wednesday at Sydney University.
Purpose: It is clear that CoACT (Macquarie University) and Amnon Neeman's group at the CMA (Australian National University) have many common research interests. The plan for these Workshops is to investigate those connections, and to advance the research areas, in an informal and flexible setting. Some of these common interests include categorical homotopy theory, topos theory, triangulated categories, K-theory, higher categories, homological algebra, cohomology, and differential graded categories.
Participants included: Michael Batanin, Tom Booker, James Borger, John Bourke, Alain Brugui¸res, Dimitri Chikhladze, Boris Chorny, Alexei Davydov, Lance Gurney, Shane Kelly, Stephen Lack, Martin Markl, Micah McCurdy, Amnon Neeman, David Oury, Jˇr™me Scherer, Greg Stevenson, Ross Street, Dominic Verity, Alexis Virelizier.
