Primer on subfactors and applications


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.

Workshop Theme

The purpose of this workshop is to provide the background and entry to the six month programme to graduate students, postdocs and established workers. This primer will consist of four mini-courses of 4 hours each.

Since space is limited, particularly since two programmes are running in parallel with this one, applications for attendance need to be made through the registration process.

Some limited funding is available through the London Mathematical Society for UK based graduate students to attend.  Applications for such funding can also be made via the registration page.

The lectures will be held in Seminar Room 2.

Deadline for applications: 16 November 2016

Please note members of Cambridge University are welcome to turn up and sign in as a non-registered attendee on the day(s) during the workshop and attend the lecture(s). Please note that we cannot provide you with any support including name badge, meals or accommodation.

In addition to visiting the INI, there are multiple ways in which you can participate remotely.
