Factorization algebras are a new mathematical approach to quantum field theory. They are related to functorial field theories, another approach to quantum field theory. Factorization algebras also figure in current research in manifold topology, homotopy theory and algebraic geometry. The workshop brought together researchers from many different fields to understand and deepen these connections.
