ABC Algebra Workshop

  • Start Date: 11/10/2018
  • End Date: 11/11/2018

University of Washington


The "ABC algebra workshops" is a series of PIMS-sponsored research workshops on algebra and related topics. Originally designed to bring together researchers from the Universities of Alberta and British Columbia (thus the acronym ABC), these workshops have attracted participants  from other parts of Canada and western United States. The current workshop is the first in this series to be held at the University of Washington. We have assembled a distinguished group of speakers on a wide range of topics, at the interface of algebraic geometry, the theory of algebraic groups, algebraic topology, algebraic number theory, representation theory, cohomology theory and algebraic combinatorics.




Invited Speakers:

Eric Friedlander (University of Southern California)

Robert Guralnick (University of Southern California)

Julia Hartmann (University of Pennsylvania)

Raman Parimala (Emory University)

Burt Totaro (UCLA)

Bianca Viray (University of Washington)

Kirill Zainullin (University of Ottawa)
