Uffe Haagerup

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.

The lectures will be held at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.

The symposium is sponsored by the Villum Foundation, the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation, and the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.

See information for short term visitors, including directions to the mathematics department. Here is a map with the HCØ buildings and the math department.

In case you arrive by car to the university. There is parking space on campus (either enter by Universitetsparken or by Ole Maaløes Vej, the latter may have more parking space). You can pick up a parking permit at the registration desk, which is open Friday 9:00-9:30, and you can park without permit in 15 minutes (enough time to pick up the permit). Mark clearly when parking started. The parking guards will issue fines for any violation of the parking rules!

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.
