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.
Kate Juschenko (Northwestern University)
Amenability of discrete groups [abstract]
Guoliang Yu (Texas A&M)
Secondary invariants of elliptic operators [abstract]
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 schedule is also available as a pdf.
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.
The booklet contains practical information and is available as a pdf.
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.
More than 100 people are participating in the conference: [list].
Supported by the Danish National Research Foundation through the Centre for Symmetry and Deformation (DNRF92).
