Conference on Operator Algebras and Applications in celebration of Erik Christensen and his work

University of Copenhagen

May 4-8, 2015

Organized by Søren Eilers, Ryszard Nest and Stuart White.

On the occasion of Erik Christensen's retirement we celebrate his person and his work by a conference featuring, we hope, most of Erik's collaborators as speakers and emphasizing the many areas of operator algebras that Erik has influenced.


The event will take place at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen and is hosted by the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation. You can find information for short term visitors including directions to the mathematics department here.
