Operads were defined to describe homotopy coherent algebraic structures in homotopy theory in late 60s and early 70s by Boardman, Vogt and May. Since the 1990s they have been used to describe algebraic structures in other areas of mathematics and physics as well.  In this workshop, we will discuss various aspects of operads in algebraic topology and related subjects. Beginning with basic constructions and definitions of operads, each series will describe a different aspect and application of operads.
