Idea
For $\Theta_n$ the $n$ -truncation of the Theta-category , an $n$ -cellular set , hence a presheaf on $\Theta_n$ , may be viewed as a collection of n-morphisms of an “$n$ -graph” underlying an (∞,n)-category . The model structure on cellular sets (Ara ) models $(\infty,n)$ -categories this way. This model is referred to as n-quasicategories .

Definition
Let $\Theta_n$ be the Theta category restricted to $n$ -cells. The model structure on cellular sets is the Cisinski model structure on the category of presheaves $PSh(\Theta_n)$ defined by the following localizer : (…)

In (Ara ) the fibrant objects in this model structure are called $n$ -quasi-categories , see Relation to quasi-categories below .

Properties
Relation to quasi-categories
For $n = 1$ we have $\Theta_1 \simeq \Delta$ is the simplex category ; and the model structure on 1-cellular sets reproduces the model structure for quasi-categories . (Ara, theorem 5.26 )

Relation to $\Theta_n$ -spaces
The model structure on $\Theta_n$ -cellular sets is Quillen equivalent to that ∞-n spaces . (Ara, theorem 7.4 ).
