Perspectives in Algebraic Lie Theory


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

12th September 2011 to 16th September 2011

Organisers: Professor M Geck (Aberdeen), Professor A Kleshchev (Oregon) and Professor G Röhrle (Bochum)

Workshop Theme

This is a follow-up workshop of the six-month programme Algebraic Lie Theory held in 2009. That programme generated a great deal of interest and served as a stimulus in the research community.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together some of researchers who made major contributions during the 2009 programme to report on the current state of the developments, to see to what extent the theory has evolved since then. Moreover, the workshop should serve as a means to present new results in the field specifically those which have been initiated or founded by participants of the 2009 programme during their stay at INI. Highlights of the workshop will involve further developments in the categorification and geometrisation in Lie theory and representation theory. It is expected that new developments in algebraic Lie theory, e.g., categorification and geometric methods and latest developments in the representation theory of affine and finite W-algebras, each will play a major role.

The workshop gratefully acknowledges financial support from the EPSRC-funded programme network "Representation Theory across the Channel" as well as the DFG-funded priority programme in "Representation Theory".
