Abstract: I will explain a method of differentiation of higher groupoids to their infinitesimal counterparts. Higher groupoid objects in a category $\mathcal{C}$ with a Grothendieck pretopology were first introduced by Henriques and Zhu in terms of Kan simplicial objects in $\mathcal{C}$. In 2006, \v{S}evera has argued that the $L_{\infty}$-algebroid of a higher Lie groupoid $\mathcal{G}$ is given by the inner hom in the category of simplicial supermanifolds from the nerve of the pair groupoid of $\mathbb{R}^{0|1}$ to $\mathcal{G}$. Using the language of categorical ends, I will generalize this to groupoids in categories with an abstract tangent functor (in the sense of Rosick{\'y}) and a Grothendieck pretopology. If time permits, I will discuss possible applications to geometric deformation theory. This is joint work with Christian Blohmann.
