Conferences and summer schools

Upcoming

Time and place: Dec. 6, 2018 11:00 AM - Dec. 8, 2018 3:00 PM, University of Oslo

A conference in algebraic geometry on the occasion of Geir Ellingsrud’s 70th birthday

Time and place: Jan. 7, 2019 10:00 AM - Jan. 11, 2019 4:00 PM, N. H. Abels Building, UiO

Connes' embedding problem is one of the long standing open problems in Operator Algebras. Since it was raised in 1976, several equivalent formulations, seemingly unrelated to it, have been found, also in other areas of mathematics. In particular, it is equivalent to the (weak) Tsirelson problem in Quantum Information Theory

The aim of the winter school is to upgrade the knowledge of all operator algebraists at NTNU and UiO, in particular master and PhD students, on these important topics and to review some of the recent developments.  

The school is a part of the project "Pure Mathematics in Norway, 2018-2022", supported by the Bergen Research Foundation and the Tromsø Research Foundation.

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. 

Time and place: Sep. 9, 2016 - Sep. 10, 2016, Klækken Hotell

Time and place: July 5, 2016 8:30 AM - July 7, 2016 6:00 PM, Wolfgang Pauli Institute, Vienna

On 5-7 July 2016, there will be a conference on the mathematics of energy markets organized at the Wolfgang Pauli Institute (WPI) in Vienna, Austria. The conference is an activity within the thematic program "Mathematics for Risk in Finance and Energy" at the WPI. 

We welcome participants from academia and industry to take part in this event.  

A pre-conference intensive course on stochastic modelling of energy markets will be organized on Monday July 4. The course leader will be Professor Fred Espen Benth. Click here to get more information about the intensive course.

Time and place: July 4, 2016 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, Wolfgang Pauli Institute, Vienna

By participating in this intensive course, you will learn about recent developments in the modelling of the random dynamics of forward and futures prices in energy (and commodity) markets. A general theoretical framework for stochastic processes with values in function space is developed, and applied to the particular situation of forward price modelling, yielding a class of space-time random fields.

The course requires a knowledge in stochastic analysis.
