Show List of Speakers

This intensive two day workshop will introduce graduate students and recent PhD’s to some current topics of research in Representation Theory. It will consists of a mixture of survey talks on the hot topics in the area given by leading experts and research talks by junior mathematicians covering subjects such as new developments in character theory, group cohomology, representations of Lie algebras and algebraic groups, geometric representation theory, and categorification.  This workshop is open to all mathematicians.
