Monads in a tricategory, a monoidal approach to bicategorical structures and generalized multicategories
The talk will revolve around three topics: In one of them we consider monads within a tricategory and their formal theory. In the second, we introduce a new framework for the theory of generalized multicategories. In the third, we describe a monoidal approach to bicategorical structures, which also provides a bridge between the two other topics.
