This volume contains the proceedings of the Fourth Arolla Conference on Algebraic Topology, which took place in Arolla, Switzerland, from August 20-25, 2012. The papers in this volume cover topics such as category theory and homological algebra, functor homology, algebraic K-theory, cobordism categories, group theory, generalized cohomology theories and multiplicative structures, the theory of iterated loop spaces, Smith-Toda complexes, and topological modular forms.
