Symposium: The mathematical legacy of
June 24-26, 2016
Department of Mathematical Sciences
University of Copenhagen
This symposium is devoted to honoring the mathematical legacy of Uffe Haagerup (1949-2015). The topics of the symposium comprise all areas of mathematics that interested Uffe, and to which he made lasting contributions.
Uffe spent most of his career at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, interrupted by a 5 year professorship at the University of Copenhagen (2010-2014), while holding an advanced ERC grant.
The symposium is organized jointly by these two departments. The symposium starts the morning of Friday, June 24, and ends at lunch time of Sunday, June 26.

Accommodation and support:
The Symposium can provide accommodation to a limited number of participants at Ibsen's Hotel or Hotel de 9 Små Hjem. Please indicate in the registration form if you wish to be considered for support. If granted this support, the Symposium will book the room and pay the hotel directly.
Deadline for applying for support has passsed.
Participants not requesting (or granted) support should themselves arrange for accomodations. We recommend Hotel de 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers rooms with a kitchen, and Ibsen's Hotel. Other inexpensive alternatives are the CabInn hotels, with several locations in Copenhagen: Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandivania (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most conveniently located; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department. More expensive options are Hotel Nora and Hotel Kong Arthur.
Hotel rooms are booked for all invited speakers by the Symposium.
Please register for the Symposium by filling in this registration form. Registration is free. Deadline for registration is June 1.
