Shane Kelly(University of Duisburg-Essen): Motivic homotopy theory without resolution of singularities.

Abstract: We will give a brief introduction to motivic homotopy theory followed by a discussion on how a theorem of Gabber may be used to avoid assuming that resolution of singularities holds in positive characteristic. The first half will be aimed at a general audience of topologists. The second will feature more algebraic geometry, however we will still try and keep it accessible to topologists.
