For our proposed 2016 workshop, we will use a format similar to that of the 2013 workshop, bringing senior and junior researchers together with advanced graduate students to cooperate on research projects on topics of common interest in homotopy theory. The focus of the workshop will be on active collaboration to advance the projects, rather than on knowledge communication through lectures. The goal of the workshop is for each team to obtain a new mathematical result via work performed before and during the workshop. In addition, the projects started during the meeting could lead to future collaborations among the participants. It is our intention to publish proceedings of the workshop, which will consist of articles written by each of the research groups on the results they obtain.
As new leaders are emerging, and as the work accomplished by the 2013 WIT participants is beginning to make an impact, it is time to build on this momentum by holding another workshop.
