Greetings from Bangalore!
This is the first announcement of a workshop-cum-conference ''Recent
advances in Operator Theory and Operator Algebras - 2014'', OTOA-2014, to

Entropy, and Operator Algebras.
(C) Prof. Vern Paulsen (University of Houston, USA) on Operator Systems
and their Tensor Products.
(D) Prof. Dan Timotin (Institute of Mathematics of the Romanian Academy,
Romania) on Stable Polynomials and the Solution to the Kadison-Singer
Conference (15th to 19th December, 2014): 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.
