Programme Participants

Organisers: S Lichtenbaum (Brown), VP Snaith (Southampton)

Theme: This workshop will concentrate on the aspects of the interplay between algebraic K-theory, arithmetic and algebraic geometry. Particular emphasis will be placed upon applications of the recently developed homotopy theory of geometric and motivic categories. In addition to lectures on current results, a number of expository lectures will be scheduled to provide researchers and graduate students in related areas with an opportunity to learn about these new techniques. Topics of current interest in this area include: Beilinson-Soulé conjectures, Bloch-Kato conjecture, Beilinson-Borel regulators, Kato-Parshin-Saito higher class field theory, Lichtenbaum-Quillen conjecture, Milnor K-theory, motivic cohomology, Brumer-Coates-Sinnott conjectures, polylogarithms and special values of L-functions.

Participants will include: M Ando (UIUC), S Bloch (Chicago), D Burns (KCL), G Carlsson (Stanford), R de Jeu (Durham), WG Dwyer (Notre Dame), H Esnault (Essen), I Fesenko (Nottingham), P Goerss (Northwestern), JPC Greenlees (Sheffield), M Hanamura (Kyushu), L Hesselholt (MIT), M Hovey (Wesleyan), P Hu (Chicago), A Huber (Leipzig), U Jannsen (Regensburg), JF Jardine (UWO), B Kahn (Paris VII), I Kriz (Michigan), M Levine (Northeastern), S Lichtenbaum (Brown), I Madsen (Aarhus), M Mahowald (Northwestern), F Morel (Paris VII), DC Ravenel (Rochester), J Rognes (Oslo), M Rost (Ohio State), P Schneider (Muenster), AJ Scholl (Cambridge), S Schwede (Bielefeld), V Snaith (Southampton), C Soulé (IHES), NP Strickland (Sheffield), B Totaro (Cambridge), V Voevodsky (IAS), C Weibel (Rutgers), N Yagita (Ibaraki),

Location and Costs: The conference will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court. The workshop package costs £330 and includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 29 September until breakfast on Saturday 5 October 2002, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place. Numbers will be restricted to about 60 participants.

All available space and funds to attend this workshop have been allocated.
