Representations of Algebraic Groups, Quantum Groups, and Lie Algebras

July 11-15, 2004
Snowbird, Utah

The main theme of the conference will focus on canonical bases from these different points of view. The talks will provide various interpretations and applications of canonical bases. These subjects are very closely related to finite-dimensional representations of affine Hecke algebras, affine quantum groups, Nakajima's quiver varieties, and the structure of Hall algebras. Knowledge about these algebras can lead to new results about the representations of Schur algebras and finite-dimensional Hecke algebras.

In addition, the conference will feature talks on the K-theoretic and geometric approaches towards the understanding of the (non-restricted) modular representations of Lie algebras and of algebraic groups in positive characteristics.

One evening dinner will be reserved for a Conference Banquet, which will honor James E. Humphreys for his contributions in the field on the occasion of his sixty-fifth birthday.

Topics
(1) Representations of algebraic groups in characteristics p>0
(2) Modular representations of Lie algebras in positive characteristics
(3) Representations of affine Kac-Moody Lie algebras, their quantum analogs, and Hecke algebras
(4) Representations of the Ringel-Hall double algebras of quivers
(5) Representations of quantum groups at roots of unity and quantum affine algebras

More Information on Accommodation

In addition to information provided at  AMS web page,

(1) Individuals with families will be charged the single room and board
rate of $816 and there is no additional lodging charge for family
members but there is a charge of $265 per person for the meal plan.  The
meal plan is an option and if family members do not want the meal plan
it must be stressed that they will not be able to take meals with the
group and will have to eat at one of the many restaurants at Snowbird.
They will be required to indicate the total number of people in the room
on the housing form they will receive with their invitation packet.

(2) Weekly rates, 6 nights and 15 meals starting with breakfast on Sunday are   $552 per person for double occupancy and $816 per person for single accupancy. The Banquet on Wed. may cost more--More information on this will be sent to participants).

(3)   Participants of staying one or two night only, must notify Wayne Drady at wsd@ams.org in advance. Anoyone stying for three or more nights will be charged the weekly rate.

(4) All participants, including the organizing committee members are responsible for making their own housing arrangements. The will receive all necessary forms to do so. To help those whom want o find a roommate, a list of all participants is at this webpage and participants should contact each other.

(5). Shuttle Services (Airport/Snowbird) is $44 roundtrip and Reservation can be made using the lodging reservation form included in the invitation packets.

(6). There is no registration fee.


(7). Two overhead projectors, screens, and white boards are standard equipment in the lecture rooms. Participants should  prepare their  talks  accordingly.
