The Oberwolfach conference “Topologie” is one of the few occasions where researchers from many different areas in algebraic and geometric topology are able to meet and exchange ideas. Accordingly, the program covered a wide range of new developments in such fields as classification of manifolds, isomorphism conjectures, geometric topology, and homotopy theory. More specifically, we discussed progress on problems such as the Farrell-Jones conjecture, higher dimensional analogues of Harer’s homological stability of automorphism groups of manifolds and new algebraic concepts for equivariant spectra, to mention just a few subjects. One of the highlights was a series of four talks on new methods and results about the Farrell-Jones conjecture by Arthur Bartels and Wolfgang Lück.
