Show List of Speakers

As part of the full-year 2000-2001 program on Operator Algebras, MSRI will host a one-week NATO ADVANCED RESEARCH WORKSHOP on Simple C*-algebras and Non-commutative Dynamical Systems, September 25-29, 2000. This workshop covers two closely allied areas in operator algebras. The first significant applications of the ongoing classification of simple nuclear C*-algebras has provided important new invariants for the study of dynamical systems. On the other hand, dynamical systems provide a valuable source of new examples of simple C*-algebras. It is anticipated that there will be considerable interaction between the two groups coming to the workshop.

Show Funding

To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.

Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.

Show Lodging

MSRI does not hire an outside company to make hotel reservations for our workshop participants, or share the names and email addresses of our participants with an outside party. If you are contacted by a business that claims to represent MSRI and offers to book a hotel room for you, it is likely a scam. Please do not accept their services.
