Description
The workshop will bring together key researchers working in various areas of Group Representation Theory to strengthen the interaction and collaboration between them and to make further progress on a number of basic problems and conjectures in the field. Topics of the workshop include -- Global-local conjectures in the representation theory of finite groups -- Representations and cohomology of simple, algebraic and finite groups -- Connections to Lie theory and categorification, and -- Applications to group theory, number theory, algebraic geometry, and combinatorics.
