# Winter School in $\mathbb{A}^1$-Homotopy Theory

As part of the cooperation between the FRIAS Research Focus on “Cohomology” and the Research Training Group GK1821, we are pleased to announce a  winter school on $\mathbb{A}^1$-Homotopy Theory that will take place in Freiburg from February 5 to 9, 2018.

The school will cover the basic constructions of the unstable and stable $\mathbb{A}^1$-homotopy categories, along with the relevant category-theoretic methods, such as model structures, left Bousfield localization and symmetric spectra. These constructions will be applied to more recent developments, such as the questions of $\mathbb{A}^1$-contractibility and the minus-part of the stable $\mathbb{A}^1$-homotopy category.
