Conference celebrating the career of Ryszard Nest
University of Copenhagen, 15-17 October 2020
We cordially invite everybody with an interest in the focal area to participate. There will be no conference fee, but we are regrettably only able to offer financial support for speakers and network members.

The scientific program begins early Thursday afternoon and ends Saturday evening.
The conference "Automorphisms and invariants of operator algebras" runs just until this event starts, and all participants at one event are cordially invited to the other. Because they are funded differently we ask that you sign up for both. When giving arrival and departure times please indicate your total stay in Copenhagen.
The conference will take place at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen. See detailed instructions on how to reach Copenhagen and the conference venue.
Tickets and passes for public transportation can be bought at the Copenhagen Airport and every train or metro station. You can find the DSB ticket office on your right-hand side as soon as you come out of the arrival area of the airport. DSB has an agreement with 7-Eleven, so many of their shops double as selling points for public transportation.
A journey planner in English is available.
More information on the "find us" webpage.
We arrange accommodation for all speakers. Other participants are requested to make their own arrangements.
We recommend Hotel 9 Små Hjem, which is pleasant and inexpensive and offers rooms with a kitchen. Other inexpensive alternatives are CabInn, which has several locations in Copenhagen: the Hotel City (close to Tivoli), Hotel Scandivania (Frederiksberg, close to the lakes), and Hotel Express (Frederiksberg) are the most convenient locations; the latter two are 2.5-3 km from the math department. Somewhat more expensive – and still recommended – options are Hotel Nora and Ibsen's Hotel.
Deadline for registration is September 1, 2020.
