A consequence of the works of Costello and Lurie is that the Hochschild chain complex of a Calabi-Yau category admit the structure of a framed E_2 algebra (the genus zero operations). I will describe a new algebraic point of view on these operations which admits generalizations to the setting of relative Calabi-Yau structures, which do not seem to fit into the framework of TQFTs. In particular, we obtain a generalization of string topology to manifolds with boundary, as well as interesting operations on Hochschild homology of Fano varieties. Time permitting, I will explain some applications to quiver varieties. This is joint work with Christopher Brav.
