Young Mathematicians in C*-Algebras

The University of Copenhagen

August 7-11, 2017

A conference organised for and by master/Ph.D.-students and postdocs in operator algebras (both von Neumann and C*-algebras, despite the name!) and related areas, with the goal of fostering scientific and social interaction between young researchers. The conference will feature two mini-courses by established researchers alongside many contributed talks by participants.

Hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, with financial support from the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation (DNRF92).


Kate Juschenko (Northwestern University)

Amenability of discrete groups [abstract]

Guoliang Yu (Texas A&M)

Secondary invariants of elliptic operators [abstract]

Contributed talks:

Alongside the mini-courses, the conference will feature many contributed talks by participants. Participants at all academic levels are cordially invited to propose a talk before June 15 (see registration form).


The conference will run from Monday morning until 4pm on Friday afternoon.

Young Women in C*-Algebras (YWC*A):

There will be a mini-workshop in the weekend August 5-6 where all women participating in the YMC*A are invited to speak. The program will also include lectures by Magdalena Musat (Copenhagen) titled "Quantized functional analysis, tensor norms and the Grothendieck program". All YMC*A participants are welcome to attend all the YWC*A talks.

Practical information:

An email with practical information will be sent to all participants.


We hope to be able to provide accommodation (in shared hotel rooms) to a large number of participating students and postdocs. We are regrettably unable to cover participants' travel costs.


Please use this registration form, for both YMC*A and YWC*A. The deadline for registration is July 1st, but bear in mind that deadlines for accommodation support and contributing talks are earlier (May 28th and June 15th, respectively).


Supported by the Danish National Research Foundation through the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation (DNRF92).
