String topology studies various algebraic structures given by intersecting loops in a manifold, as well as those on the Hochschild chains or homology of an algebra. In this preparatory talk, we survey a collection of such structures and their relationships with one another.

In the first talk I will introduce the main constructions, many of which are classical, from scratch. This part will be introductory and accessible to a general audience with a basic knowledge of topology. This introduction will also serve as preparation for the main talk in which I will outline the proof and discuss some applications.
