Aims and Scope
Transchromatic phenomena appear in a variety of contexts. These include stable and unstable homotopy theory, higher category theory, topological field theories, and arithmetic geometry. The aim of the conference is to bring together people from all of these areas in order to understand the relationship between each others work and to further demystify the appearance of transchromatic patterns in such disparate areas. We will also celebrate Andy Baker's 70th birthday at the conference.
The conference will consist of 15 invited talks and a number of contributed talks in the form of a gong show.

Limited financial support for the conference and younger participants has been provided by the SFB 1085: Higher Invariantsand by the NSF under grant no. DMS-1955705.
MAP: Points of Interest.
PUBLIC TRANSIT: Local bus system and route map.
There are many useful buses typically, but the 6 will suffice for getting to and from the city center and the conference room (nearest stops are either 'An der Kreuzbreite' or 'Neuprull').
One can also walk to the conference room from the 'Universitat' bus stop on campus, which is better served by the bus system. The 6, 11 and X4 buses all travel between the HBF (central station) and the Universitat bus stop. The 6, 11, X4 towards campus can all be caught here and one of them stops at this stop about every 5 minutes during working hours.
You can pay for a bus ride on entering the bus or purchase a strip of tickets from one of the ticket machines. A strip of tickets costs 10.50 euros and it allows five bus rides.
ACCOMMODATION: We have reserved a block of hotel rooms at the Hotel Apollo. Participants will need to book and pay for their own accommodation, although the Hotel Apollo should be able to arrange shared rooms for participants with limited financial support (all pre-PhD participants requesting financial support should request a shared room). Please refer to PROMOTION CODE "SFB 1085" when making a reservation!
