Equivariant techniques have played a critical role in the proofs of several major results and developments in algebraic topology over the past decade. Examples include the solution of the famous Kervaire invariant one problem, computations of previously inaccessible homotopy groups of spheres based on the motivic Adams spectral sequence, and the new equivariant approach to THH, TC, and algebraic K- theory. The programme will unite experts and young researchers who apply homotopic methods in algebra (operads), algebraic topology, and algebraic geometry (motivic homotopy theory) around the common theme of equivariant methods. Though these methods have already led to significant breakthroughs, their potential is clearly far from exhausted. We foresee that this programme will incite further developments and greater synergies between equivariant homotopy theory and the themes of the programme centred around three workshops: "Operads and calculus", "Chromatic and motivic homotopy theory" and "THH, TC and algebraic K- theory".
