Abstract: Higher categorical structures find applications to diverse areas, such as homotopy theory, mathematical physics, logic and computer science, algebraic geometry. I will start this talk with an introduction to higher categories and to some of their connections with homotopy theory. I will then discuss a class of higher categories, called Segal-type models of weak n-categories, which are based on the combinatorics of multi-simplicial sets. This comprise the Tamsamani-Simpson model, as well as two new models which I have introduced, based on a new paradigm to weaken higher categorical structures.
