Conference Motives and Representation Theory

2-5 June 2020, Münster, Germany
++ cancelled due to Corona crisis ++  will be postponed ++

In recent years, motivic techniques have been applied in several branches of representation theory, for example in geometric and modular representation theory. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in these areas in order to foster new synergies in topics such as foundational aspects of the theory of motives, Tate motives on varieties of representation-theoretic origin, motivic aspects of the Langlands program, and motives of classifying spaces.
