Greetings from Bangalore!
This is the first announcement of a workshop-cum-conference ''Recent
advances in Operator Theory and Operator Algebras - 2016'', OTOA-2016,
to be held at Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore during December
13-December 22, 2016. This conference is a continuation of the
biannual series of OTOA's being held at ISI, Bangalore.
Workshop (13th to 17th December, 2016): The speakers for the workshop are:
(1) Prof. David Blecher ( University of Houston, USA).
(2) Prof. Nigel Higson (Penn State University, USA).
(3) Prof. John E. McCarthy ( Washington University in St. Louis., USA).
(4) Prof. Stefaan Vaes ( KU Leuven, Belgium).
Conference (19th to 22th December, 2016): The conference intends to cover all aspects of Operator Algebras and Operator Theory. We aim at having mostly invited talks. There could be a few contributed talks from youngsters. There will be plenty of time for discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. The names of invited speakers will be on the conference website as soon as they confirm to us that they are likely to come.
The workshop and the conference will intentionally be held in a largely informal style.
There will be no registration fee. We hope to provide local hospitality with guest house/hotel/hostel accommodation to all the participants who are not from Bangalore. However, we would appreciate if you offer to cover your hotel expenses (approximately 45 US dollars/night) with your own research fund. Please let us know of your interest in participation as soon as possible. The total number of participants would be limited. In order to estimate accommodation requirements, do inform us as to whether you are interested in participation in both the weeks or not.
