Algebraic topology in general and homotopy theory in particular is in an exciting period of growth and transformation, driven in part by strong interactions with algebraic geometry, mathematical physics, and representation theory, but also driven by new approaches to our classical problems. This workshop was a forum to present and discuss the latest result and ideas in homotopy theory and the connections to other branches of mathematics. Central themes of the workshop were derived algebraic geometry, homotopical invariants for ring spectra such as topological Hochschild homology, interactions with modular representation theory, group actions on spaces and the closely-related study of the classifying spaces of groups.
