Operator algebras, dynamics and groups
An ICM 2022 Satellite Conference. July 1-4, 2022
The conference will bring together top researchers as well as early-career mathematicians in all areas of operator algebras with emphasis on applications to dynamics and group actions. The goal of the conference is to highlight the current status of the many directions that the field of operator algebras has taken, and to look at future challenges in the field.
The 4-day long conference will start early Friday July 1 and end late afternoon of Monday July 4. The conference program will include around 25 talks. It is organized by the operator algebra group at the University of Copenhagen assisted by an international scientific advisory board.
The 2022 ICM in Saint Petersburg starts on July 6. There are convenient travel connections between Copenhagen and Saint Petersburg.
Everyone is welcome to attend the conference. A registration form will be set up later. It is currently uncertain if it will be possible to apply for support to attend.
This list is preliminary. More names will be added.
- Benoit Collins (Kyoto University)
- Cyril Houdayer (Université Paris-Sud, Orsay)
- Narutaka Ozawa (RIMS, Kyoto University)
- Sorin Popa (University of California, Los Angeles)
- Mikael de la Salle (UMPA, ENS de Lyon)
- Dimitri Shlyakhtenko (University of California, Los Angeles)
- Stefaan Vaes (KU Leuven)
- Dan-Virgil Voiculescu (University of California, Berkeley)
- Stuart White (University of Oxford)
- Wilhelm Winter (University of Münster)
To be announced
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.
A number of block reservations has been made at selected hotels. Information about these, and how to make a booking will be posted later. Note also that hotel rooms can be hard to get at the time of the conference, cf. the "Tour de France" menu below.
Information about registration will be available later.
It so happens that Tour de France for the first time in its history will visit Denmark in 2022, see HERE for more information.
The first leg of the famous bicycle race version 2022 will take place in Copenhagen on July 1 (the same day as our conference starts) with a 13 km time trial. The following two legs will also take place in Denmark, but not in Copenhagen. You can find the route of the time trial HERE. It passes fairly close to the math department, which is located in the white triangle in the upper part of the map next to where it says "Niels Bohr Bygningen".
Besides offering a unique spectacle, the race will affect the conference in some other ways: Traffic including public transportation will be hugely affected - more information about how to get around that day will be posted when we get close to the conference. Hotels will be more difficult to book (we have made a number of block bookings in different hotels, see the accommodations information above), and even travel could be affected, so don't wait to the last moment with buying your ticket to Copenhagen.
