This autumn school will take place during the week September 16-20, 2019 in a conference center close to Utrecht, The Netherlands.
The idea of this autumn school is to bring together a group of about 25 participants in a remote place in order to learn about advanced topics in Algebraic Topology. The talks are meant to be accessible to first or second year PhD students.

The following lecture series constitute the core program of the autumn school:
Chromatic homotopy theory acts like a prism for the stable homotopy category:
it reveals how it decomposes into irreducible layers and moreover offers tools
for understanding and reassembling these constituent pieces. The goal of these
lectures is to give an overview of the chromatic perspective on stable homotopy
theory. Beginning with the Ravenel conjectures, we will discuss some of the key
features of chromatic homotopy theory and then describe a selection of recent
developments, including the chromatic splitting conjecture, asymptotics, and
connections to equivariant homotopy. Finally, we will explore similar chromatic
patterns in other contexts like modular representation theory and outline a
common framework for studying them.

The registration deadline has passed, and registration is no longer possible.
The autumn school starts Monday September 16 in the morning and ends Friday 20 around noon, so it is recommended that you arrive already on Sunday September 17. Travel details will be given in due time before the autumn school.
