If sufficient funds are available, the organizing committee will announce a call for financial support applications from graduate students and early PhD researchers.

Modern Trends in Representation Theory - Altai 2022 will take place in the picturesque and mountainous region of Altai Republic, about 900 kilometers from Novosibirsk. It is supported by Novosibirsk State University, the Sobolev Institute of Mathematics, and the Mathematical Center at Akademgorodok.

Description

Among the topics of the conference are the classical representation theory of Lie algebras and Lie groups, geometric representation theory, quantum groups, geometric quantization and integrable systems, the cohomology of groups and algebras, algebraic invariant theory, vertex algebras, and low-dimensional topology. The keynote speakers who have preliminarily agreed to give talks at the conference are Carina Boyallian (Argentina), Alberto De Sole (Italy), Dimitar Grantcharov (USA), Naihuan Jing (USA), Anthony Licata (Australia), Victor Ostrik (USA), Vera Serganova (USA), Peng Shan (China), Catharina Stroppel (Germany), and Geordie Williamson (Australia).

Representation theory currently plays an outsized role in modern mathematical research. It links several areas of mathematics and provides a rigorous base for important theories in physics. Planned for the conference are the following subjects: the classical representation theory of Lie algebras and Lie groups, quantum groups, Lie superalgebras, W-algebras, symplectic geometry, Poisson algebras, geometric quantization and integrable systems, the cohomology of groups and algebras, algebraic invariant theory, Springer and modular Springer correspondence, vertex and Poisson vertex algebras, low-dimensional topology, category theory, geometric representation theory, the applications of representation theory in enumerative geometry, and more.

Given the broad applicability of representation theory, professional meetings that cover the topics above enjoy immense popularity in the global mathematical research community. And that means that even besides the primary value offered by the conference, there will be incredible opportunities for new collaborations between conference participants. The event will help build mutually beneficial professional connections between international specialists and the mathematicians working in the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Working together, the local organizing committee, Novosibirsk State University, and the Mathematical Center at Akademgorodok have decades of experience organizing international conferences scattered across Siberia and focusing on different areas of mathematics.
