An *$\omega$-groupoid* is an ∞-category (see there for more details) in which all k-morphisms for all $k \in \mathbb{N}$ are equivalences.

This is also called an *∞-groupoid*. In the literature the term “$\omega$-groupoid” is usually reserved for algebraic models instead of geometric models.

How strict the $\omega$-category and the inverses must be can vary. Somes authors that use the term ‘$\omega$-groupoid’ mean strict ∞-groupoid by default and speak of *weak $\omega$-groupoid* otherwise.
