To facilitate discussion between PhD-students and recent graduates (at most two years of postdoctoral experience) in an informal setting. The topics to be discussed will revolve around categorical, geometric and combinatorial methods in Representation Theory. In order to guarantee an inspiring working atmosphere the number of attendees will be limited to 20 people. A 20 to 30-minute talk or a poster presentation will be expected from each of the participants. Please notice that we don't expect from you to present results, the talks/posters are rather meant as an introduction to your field of research and the methods and techniques used within.


Technical Facilities:

The lecture rooms are equipped with black- or whiteboards and projectors.



NEWS: The registration will be from 1.00 PM in room 01.382 in the math department (Cauerstrasse 11)

The programme and the abstracts are now available. Some posters and slides of the talks can be found here.


Time and Venue:

The workshop will begin on Thursday, 23rd May at 2.00 o'clock PM and end on Saturday, 25th May around lunch time. The conference will take place at the Department of Mathematics of the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The Department of Mathematics is located at the Campus Erlangen Sued.


How to get there:

A description how to reach the department and a map of the Campus Erlangen Sued can be found here.

Costs and Accommodation:

Costs for accommodation will be covered by the organisers. We expect to be able to cover travel costs within Germany. All participants will be accommodated in Hotel Noris in Thon, Nuremberg. From Thon there is a convenient bus going directly to Erlangen Sued.
