This volume contains the proceedings of the Conference on Hopf
Algebras and Tensor Categories, held July 4–8, 2011, at the
University of Almería, Almería, Spain.

The articles in this volume cover a wide variety of topics related
to the theory of Hopf algebras and its connections to other areas of
mathematics. In particular, this volume contains a survey covering
aspects of the classification of fusion categories using Morita
equivalence methods, a long, self-contained, and comprehensive
introduction to Hopf algebras in the category of species, and a
summary of the status to date of the classification of Hopf algebras
of dimensions up to 100. Among other articles in this volume are a
study of normalized class sum and generalized character table for
semisimple Hopf algebras, a contribution to the classification program
of finite dimensional pointed Hopf algebras, an analysis of conjugacy
classes related to a conjecture of De Concini, Kac, and Procesi on
representations of quantum groups at roots of unity, a categorical
approach to the Drinfeld double of a braided Hopf algebra via Hopf
monads, an overview of Hom-Hopf algebras, and several discussions on
the crossed product construction in different settings.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in Hopf algebra theory, tensor categories, quantum groups, representation theory, and combinatorics and conformal field theory.
