Representation theory's hidden motives

Conference at Münster and Sydney, 27 September - 1 October 2021

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.

Workshop Cuntz semigroups

12 - 16 July 2021

The Cuntz semigroup is a geometric refinement of K-theory that was introduced by Cuntz in the 1970s in his pioneering work on the structure of simple C*-algebras. This powerful invariant has seen many applications in the structure and classification theory of C*-algebras. Recently, it has also become clear that Cuntz semigroups are interesting objects of study in their own right. This workshop will bring together researchers that are interested in the different aspects of Cuntz semigroups in areas such as C*-algebras, dynamical systems, and model theory.

Interactions between expanders, groups and operator algebras

Workshop via Zoom, 7 - 10 June 2021

In the last few decades it became apparent that notions of expansion lie at the intersection of numerous topics of research. Passing through ergodic theory, representation theory spectral analysis, this topic draws techniques from fields ranging from geometry to group theory and operator algebras. Such a diverse range of tools and applications is an endless source of inspiration and lively research that continues to this day. This workshop aims to bring together experts in the field to report on recent progresses and outline a plan for future research.
