Coherence for $3$-dualizable objects

I will explain the notion of coherence for duals and adjoints in higher categories. I will discuss a strategy for using knowledge of coherence data and the cobordism hypothesis to give presentations of fully extended bordism categories and mention some progress in dimension $3$.

Current organizers: José MourãoRoger Picken, Marko Stošić
