Organising Committee: Haynes Miller (MIT) & Doug Ravenel (Rochester)

Theme of EuroWorkshop: This EuroWorkshop will bring together the many disparate directions of research on elliptic genera and cohomology. These include: topological modular forms, obstruction theory technology, the enriched Witten genus, homotopical level structures, the Waldhausen K-theory of topological K-theory, equivariance and rigidity, twisted K-theory and the Verlinde algebra, the chiral de Rham complex, fundamental classes of algebraic varieties, orbifold genera, index theory on loop spaces, elliptic phenomena in physics, and moonshine representation theory.

The principal objective will be to make connections between these developments, and speakers will be encouraged to bridge the gaps between them.

Location and Costs: The EuroWorkshop 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, costing £330 per week or £715 for two weeks, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 8 December until breakfast on Saturday 21 December 2002, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place. Numbers will be restricted to about 50 participants.

Support: The EuroWorkshop is supported by the European Community and funding is available to support a limited number of young (under 35 years of age) researchers and overseas senior researchers who are nationals of EC Member States or of the Associated States. Self-supporting participants of any age and nationality are welcome to apply.
