Pawel Kasprzak (Warzaw) will give a talk with title " Quantum actions on discrete quantum spaces"
To any action of a compact quantum group on a von Neumann algebra which is a direct sum of factors we associate an equivalence relation corresponding to the partition of a space into orbits of the action. We show that in case all factors are finite-dimensional (i.e. when the action is on a discrete quantum space) the relation has finite orbits. We then apply this
i) to generalize the classical theory of Clifford, concerning the restrictions of representations to normal subgroups, to the framework of quantum subgroups of discrete quantum groups, itself extending the context of closed normal quantum subgroups of compact quantum groups; ii) to the context of idempotent states showing that the algebra of invariant elements is finite dimensional if and only if the corresponding state is normal. Joint work with K. De Commer, A. Skalski and P. Sołtan.
Professor Emeritus Erling Størmer will turn 80 on November 2, and he will use this occasion to give a Colloquium Talk with tittle:
POSITIVE LINEAR MAPS ON MATRIX ALGEBRAS
Abstract: The first part of the talk will be an introduction to the theory of positive linear maps between matrix algebras, plus a few words on the operator algebra case. For the last 20 years, physicists working in quantum information theory have been active in the subject and I’ll devote the last half of the talk to a negative solution to a conjecture they had.
When and how surface structure determines the dynamics of partial wetting
I will discuss machine computations in a finite range, using Bruner's ext-program, of Ext over A, the mod 2 Steenrod algebra, and over A(2), the subalgebra of A generated by Sq^1, Sq^2 and Sq^4. These are the E_2-terms of the mod 2 Adams spectral sequences for S and tmf, respectively.

Erik Bedos (UiO) will give a talk with title "On Exel-Pardo algebras as Cuntz-Pimsner algebras"
Nicolai Stammeier (Oslo) will give a talk with title: The inner structure of boundary quotients of right LCM semigroups
Abstract: In joint work with Roberto Conti, Stefano Rossi, and Valeriano Aiello, we use semidirect products built from algebraic dynamical systems to model right LCM semigroups to study various structural aspects in connection with a selection of distinguished subalgebras of the associated boundary quotients. Our two guiding examples are integral dynamics as considered in work of Barlak - Omland - Stammeier, and exact injective group endomorphisms of discrete abelian groups with finite cokernel as studied by Cuntz and Vershik.
