Description
The workshop will survey various important and active areas of the representation theory of finite and algebraic groups, and introduce the audience to several basic open problems in the area. It will consist of 6 series of 3 lectures each given by top experts in the field. The lectures are designed for a diverse audience and will be accessible to non-specialists and graduate students with some background in representation theory. Topics covered include Representation theory of algebraic groups, Decomposition numbers of finite groups of Lie type, Deligne-Lusztig theory,  Block theory, Categorification, and Local-global-conjectures.
