Lie groupoids are a category theoretic extension of the concept of a Lie group and have been the subject of increased interest for differential geometers in (relatively) recent years.

After discussing their definition and providing a number of key examples, I plan to describe some applications of Lie groupoids, including their use as models for singular spaces (and resulting relation to smooth stacks) and their relationship with symplectic and Poisson geometry.

I will assume those in the audience have no more than a basic understanding of category theory and the theory of Lie groups.
