# Une Dégustation Topologique: Homotopy Theory in the Swiss Alps

Share this page *Edited by *
*Dominique Arlettaz; Kathryn Hess*

The talks given at the Arolla Conference on Algebraic Topology covered a broad spectrum of current research in homotopy theory, offering participants the possibility to sample and relish selected morsels of homotopy theory, much as a participant in a wine tasting partakes of a variety of fine wines. True to the spirit of the conference, the proceedings included in this volume present a savory sampler of homotopical delicacies. Readers will find within these pages a compilation of articles describing current research in the area, including classical stable and unstable homotopy theory, configuration spaces, group cohomology, K-theory, localization, \(p\)-compact groups, and simplicial theory.
