Lie groupoids generalise Lie groups and the associated Lie
theory to regimes with symmetries which are not necessarily global in
nature (in the sense of being not induced by a Lie group action). It
is part of the mathematical folklore that to every Lie groupoid one
can associate an infinite-dimensional Lie group, the group of (global)
bisections. This construction yields an object which retains a
surprising amount of information on the groupoid and fits nicely into
the Lie theoretic framework for groupoids and infinite-dimensional
This talk is giving an introduction to the relation between Lie
groupoids and infinite-dimensional Lie groups. We will discuss some
main examples and implications of the construction in Lie theory and
representation theory. No prior knowledge about Lie groupoids and
infinite-dimensional Lie groups is assumed.
