Greetings from Bangalore!
This is the first announcement of the workshop-cum-conference ''Recent
advances in Operator Theory and Operator Algebras - 2018'', OTOA-2018,
to be held at Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Bangalore during December
13-December 19, 2018. This conference is a continuation of the
biennial series of OTOA's being held at ISI, Bangalore.
OTOA-2018 will consist of three series of five lectures each given by top experts in the field, a number of invited talks and short contributions. The lecture series will be delivered by:
(1) Piotr Nowak from Institute of Mathematics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland,
(2) Gelu Popescu from University of Texas at San Antonio, USA, and
(3) Stuart White from University of Glasgow, UK.
The conference intends to cover all aspects of Operator Algebras and Operator Theory. 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. OTOA encourages and promotes excellence of young mathematicians.
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.
