Higher Structure Conferences

Higher Structures in Geometry and Physics 2014

October 27–31, Geneva at Villa Battelle. Math Institute is located in a small white building, right hand side at the first intersection if you come to the hill from the tram station. Here is a map.

For the conference this year, we would like to have a focus on interaction between higher structures and field theory.
