Abstract: I will introduce cobordism categories of Poincaré chain complexes, or more generally of Poincaré objects in any hermitian quasi-category C. One interest in such algebraic cobordism categories arises as they receive refinements of Ranicki's symmetric signature in the form of functors from geometric cobordism categories à la Galatius-Madsen-Tillmann-Weiss. I will focus, however, on a more algebraic direction. The cobordism category of C can be delooped by an iterated Q-construction, that is compatible with Bökstedt-Madsen's delooping of the geometric cobordism category. The resulting spectrum is a derived version of Grothendieck-Witt theory and I will explain how its homotopy type can be computed in terms of the K- and L-Theory of C.
