I will define a version of the intersection Floer homology for exact Lagrangian cobordisms between Legendrian knots in the symplectisation of some particularly simple contact manifolds. The non-compact nature of the ambient manifolds will lead us to consider, according to the usual SFT paradigm, holomorphic curves with multiple negative ends (holomorphic cthulhus), but also slightly more exotic objects (holomorphic nessies).

If time permits, I will explain how we can use this theory to prove rigidity results for exact Lagrangian cobordisms. All this is a joint work with Chantraine, Dimitroglu Rizell and Golovko.
