The "Motivic invariants and categorification" EPSRC Programme Grant research group at Oxford held a workshop on Monday 7 October - Wednesday 9 October. Talks were given by Emily CliffDennis BorisovOren Ben-Bassat, Dario Beraldo,  Robert Laugwitz, Vittoria Bussi, Kobi Kremnizer, Balazs Szendroi, Dominic Joyce and Yan Ting Lam. Dominic gave an overview of his research program and his slides are available at this link.
