Algebraic K-theory of spaces
Aims and Description
A workshop on Algebraic K-theory of spaces and related topics will be held at the University of Regensburg, during July 24-28, 2023.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in the field, review aspects of the deep interactions between algebraic K-theory and manifold topology,
and discuss developments in the field, especially, from the perspective of the Waldhausen’s algebraic K-theory of spaces and its diverse connections, both with
the study of structured ring spectra and their invariants and of automorphisms of manifolds, using a variety of different homotopy-theoretic and geometric methods.
There will be lecture series by
- Gregory Arone (Stockholm University)
- John Klein (Wayne State University)
- Manuel Krannich (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)
- Cary Malkiewich (Binghamton University)
- Mona Merling (University of Pennsylvania)
- Wolfgang Steimle (University of Augsburg) '
- Marco Varisco (University at Albany, State University of New York)
In addition to the lecture series, there will also be opportunities for researchers to give contributed talks.
The detailed program of the workshop and the schedule of the talks will be announced here soon.
Financial support for the conference has been provided by the SFB 1085: Higher Invariants.
