Higher Categories http://www.crm.cat/hocat/

The Advanced Course consists of three lecture series:

 -- Bertrand Toën (Toulouse)
    "Simplicial presheaves and derived geometries"

In the preceding week (28/1--1/2), two preparatory mini-courses
are planned:  Myles Tierney: "Simplicial homotopy theory", and
Mathieu Anel: "The functor-of-points approach to geometry, and
