    Little discs operad, graph complexes and applications

    The little cubes operad is one of the key objects of the deformation theory of
    the last decades. I will outline its geometric definition, some combinatorial
    models and different known results and applications.

    The framed little cubes operad is much less studied and I will report on some
    recent results of related deformation theory, explain relationships with
    Deligne-Mumford compactifications of stable curves of zero genus and use it to
    prove some conjectures stated for braid and cacti groups whose representations
    appear naturally as tensor products in tensor and coboundary categories
