Title: Finiteness properties of some groups in the extended Thompson family

We will discuss the family of Braided Higman-Thompson groups and their finiteness properties. Along the way, we will come across certain subcomplexes of the curve complex and arc complex of a surface as well as introduce the notion of a disk complex.

This is an ongoing joint work with Xiaolei Wu.
