11 Sep 2017 - 13 Jul 2018 • Warwick, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Warwick EPSRC mathematics symposium is organised annually by the University of Warwick with the support of the EPSRC for the benefit of the mathematical sciences community in the UK. It brings leading national and international experts together with UK researchers in a year-long programme of research activities focused on an emerging theme in the mathematical sciences. From September 2017 to August 2018, the symposium will concentrate on the theme of ''Geometry, topology and dynamics in low dimensions''. It will feature a series of international workshops and host a number of long-term visitors. There will also be a summer school organised in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society and the Clay Mathematics Institute.
Topics:

Group Representation Theory and Applications
16 Jan 2018 - 25 May 2018 • Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, United States
Abstract:
Group Representation Theory is a central area of Algebra, with important and deep connections to areas as varied as topology, algebraic geometry, number theory, Lie theory, homological algebra, and mathematical physics. Born more than a century ago, the area still abounds with basic problems and fundamental conjectures, some of which have been open for over five decades. Very recent breakthroughs have led to the hope that some of these conjectures can finally be settled. In turn, recent results in group representation theory have helped achieve substantial progress in a vast number of applications. The goal of the program is to investigate all these deep problems and the wealth of new results and directions, to obtain major progress in the area, and to explore further applications of group representation theory to other branches of mathematics.

Jean-Morlet Chair Whole Semester on Geometry, Topology, and Group Theory in Dimension 3 (Genevieve Walsh and Luisa Paoluzzi)
01 Feb 2018 - 31 Jul 2018 • CIRM Luminy, France
Abstract:
This semester of the Jean-Morlet Chair will feature several events. Firstly, a large conference focusing on the structure of 3-manifold groups, as well as on structures of groups inspired by structures on 3-manifolds?such as PD(3) groups, relatively hyperbolic groups, and building. Secondly, a research school for PhD students and recent post-docs, centering on current research in 3-Manifolds and Geometric Group Theory, and looking at the interplay between the two topics. Thirdly, a medium-size workshop centering on extremely current topics and taking into account Cannon's conjecture and related conjectures, the relation to QIs, CAT(0) boundaries, boundaries of hyperbolic buildings, relatively hyperbolic groups, and rigidity. Masterclasses for local students and Research in Pairs events will also be held during the semester.

ICS 2018 — INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SEMIGROUPS on the occasion of Mária Szendrei’s 65th birthday
11 Jul 2018 - 14 Jul 2018 • Lisbon, Portugal
Abstract:
Professor Maria B. Szendrei is world recognized leader on the theory of regular semigroups and their generalization. Her research develops and deepens several classic directions in studying various classes of regular semigroups; at the same time, she has invented many novel and inherently original approaches that opened new avenues of research. Her outstanding services to community include maintaining excellent scientific quality of the Hungarian mathematical journals and organizing a series of semigroup conferences that had proved to be important meeting points between semigroupists from Western countries and those from former Eastern block countries.​
