In collaboration with AIMS Ghana, The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) is organizing a "School and Workshop on Homological Methods in Algebra and Geometry". The school and workshop will be held at AIMS Ghana, from 1st August to 12th August 2016.

The first week will consist of three minicourses:

Brent Everitt (University of York)
Khovanov homology and categorification

Paul Smith (University of Washington)
Noncommutative algebraic geometry,

Geordie Williamson (MPI Bonn)
Geometric representation theory.

The second week will comprise of research talks on these topics.

Invited speakers:
Gwyn Bellamy (University of Glasgow)
Tomasz Brzezinski (University of Swansea)
Joshua Greene (Boston College)
Peter Jorgensen (University of Newcastle)
Joe Karmazyn (University of Bath)
Aaron Lauda (University of Southern California)

Sarah Scherotzke (University of Bonn)
Sue Sierra (University of Edinburgh)
Anne-Laure Thiel (University of Bourgogne)
Hokuto Uehara (Tokyo Metropolitan University)
Chelsea Walton (Temple University)
Liam Watson (University of Glasgow).

The goals of the workshop are twofold: on the one hand, we want to inspire the communication of state-of-the-art research within these flourishing areas and the exchange of ideas between them. On the other hand, we also want to give African postgraduates and researchers the opportunity to get in touch with international experts in order to help them enter one of these fields.

Participation: Mathematicians from all countries that are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA may attend the activity. There is no registration fee.

Deadline 30 April 2016
