This is a collection of the recorded lectures given at a conference to celebrate the 60th birthday of Professor Ioan James, who has made significant contributions to homotopy theory, highlighting problems and initiating new methods. The present volume contains papers from internationally distinguished research workers that reflect recent exciting breakthroughs in this field. It will be important for all homotopy theorists as both a statement of current research and as a signpost for new directions. This should prove interesting to research workers in algebraic topology.
