The purpose of the colloquium is to discuss the organization of ecosystem-based management in the Arctic, in particular when the ecosystems extend beyond national jurisdictions. Challenges relate to the ongoing negotiations on bio-diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction, as these must be addressed independently.

Framed correspondences were invented and studied by Voevodsky in the early 2000-s, aiming at the construction of a new model for motivic stable homotopy theory. Joint with Ivan Panin we introduce and study framed motives of algebraic varieties basing on Voevodsky's framed correspondences. Framed motives allow to construct an explicit model for the suspension P1-spectrum of an algebraic variety. Framed correspondences also give a kind of motivic infinite loop space machine. They also lead to several important explicit computations such as rational motivic homotopy theory or recovering the celebrated Morel theorem that computes certain motivic homotopy groups of the motivic sphere spectrum in terms of Milnor-Witt K-theory. In these lectures we shall discuss basic facts on framed correspondences and related constructions.

John Quigg, University of Arizona (Tempe), USA, will give a talk with title "The Pedersen rigidity problem".

Abstract: If \alpha is an action of a locally compact abelian group G on a C*-algebra A, Takesaki-Takai duality recovers (A,\alpha) up to Morita equivalence from the dual action of \widehat{G} on the crossed product A\rtimes_\alpha G. Given a bit more information, Landstad duality recovers (A,\alpha) up to isomorphism. In between these, by modifying a theorem of Pedersen, (A,\alpha) is recovered up to outer conjugacy from the dual action and the position of A in M(A\rtimes_\alpha G). Our search (still unsuccessful, somehow irritating) for examples showing the necessity of this latter condition has led us to formulate the "Pedersen rigidity problem". We present numerous situations where the condition is redundant, including G discrete or A stable or commutative. The most interesting of these "no-go theorems" is for locally unitary actions on continuous-trace algebras. This is joint work with Steve Kaliszewski and Tron Omland.

Advent er tiden for å lage småkaker. Men hva er det som egentlig skjer med eggehvitene når de bankes opp, stekes og blir til deilige julekaker? Dette forteller Anja Røyne om i Forskerfrokost. Hun er postdoktor på Fysisk Institutt. Kanskje blir det smaksprøver også?

The 17th Danish-Norwegian workshop in Operator algebras will take place at Lysebu (Oslo), January 5 - 8, 2017, with support from the Foundation for Danish-Norwegian Cooperation. It will start with lunch on Thursday, January 5, and end after breakfast on Sunday, January 8.

One day of the workshop will be devoted to commemorate our dear colleague and friend, Ola Bratteli, who passed away in 2015 and would have turned 70 in October 2016.  Ola’s nearest collaborators over the years (George Elliott, David Evans, Akitaka Kishimoto, Palle Jorgensen and Derek Robinson) will then give talks reflecting the great impact of Ola’s work within several topics (e.g. AF-algebras, derivations, C*-dynamical systems, mathematical physics, wavelets).

Participation is possible only by personal invitation from the organizing committee. 

The programme will be made available around the beginning of December.

We will have a “mingle” meeting. There will be updates from Kristine and Viggo on the running of the institute. But fear not, there will also be plenty of time for informal chat and eating of cake. All are welcome to the lobby on the first floor.
