05/01/2018 - Announcement of the new network - Stephane Launois
This is to draw your attention to a new EPSRC funded network: the
Anglo-Franco-German Network in Representation theory and its
Applications. This new network will be running from Jan. 2018 to Dec.
2021. The network is a successor to
“Anglo-Franco-German Representation Theory Network” and will be
run along similar lines. The main new development is that there
is a stronger emphasis on applications of Representation Theory. The
network has a steering committee whose members are: Martina Balagovic,
Ivan Fesenko, Iain Gordon, Nicolas Jacon, Stephane Launois, Gunter
Malle, Paul Martin, Lionel Mason, Neil O’Connell, Konstanze Rietsch and
Further information can be found on the network webpage:
Amongst other things, the webpage has a link to the EPSRC grant
proposal which on pages 6 and 7 describes the sort of activities the
network aims to support. We would welcome any suggestions or ideas you
might have for organising (or participating in) activities which fit
into the network’s remit.
In order to make sure that the mailing list is up to date, could you
please forward this email to your department, and ask colleagues to
contact Stephane Launois (e-mail: S.Launois@kent.ac.uk) if
they would like to be added/removed from the list or would like a
different address to be used.
