Operads are abstract algebraic structures which encode multilinear structure. They arose in algebraic topology in order to address problems of homotopy coherence, but since the nineties they have found applications throughout mathematics. This includes in deformation theory, mathematical physics, algebra, and combinatorics.
If you're new to operads, the organizers quite like the following resources:
We strongly believe in fostering an inclusive community. This conference is open to anybody who would like to come, and we ask that everybody is thoughtful and treats each other with respect. We subscribe to Eugenia Cheng's Manifesto for Inclusivity, which we encourage everyone to read.
We are grateful for the support of the Mathematical Research Institute MATRIX.
