Invited Speakers

And there will be the opportunity to present a contributed talk!


Aim of the Conference

The conference "Groups and their actions: algebraic, geometric and combinatorial aspects" will be held at the BellaVista Relax Hotel, Levico Terme, Italy between June 3nd and 7th 2024.
The aim of the conference is to bring together experts and young researchers working on different aspects of group actions to interchange ideas, with special emphasis on learning about each other's viewpoints. For example, on one hand during the last century representation theory has built a rich toolbox for actions on modules, while on the other hand, for instance the study of monoidal categories and tensor triangular geometry introduced a quite different point of view. Recently group actions on more general algebraic, geometric and combinatorial objects, in the form of a plethora of moduli spaces and associated invariants, have given new perspectives. The presentation of these various aspects and their interaction is the main idea of the conference.

There will be the possibility for participants to present a contributed talk. Please indicate when registering, if you would be interested to do so. We have some limited funding available to support the participation of early career researchers.

Dates

The talks will begin Monday morning, June 3rd, and finish on Friday morning, June 7th. Arrival is expected on Sunday June 2nd and departure on Friday June 7th or on Saturday June 8th.

Registration

The registration is open now. The registration deadline is April 20th. To register please follow this link. Please indicate, if you would have interest in giving a contributed talk.

There is only a limited number of places available for participants. For practical reasons all participants should lodge at the conference venue; it will not be possible to provide refreshments and meals for guests sleeping elsewhere (unless they are affiliated with the University of Trento). To be sure that no place is wasted, we count a registration as complete once the hotel has been officially reserved. Instructions on how to do this will be sent after filling in the above form. Some of the rooms are only available as double rooms and we encourage the participants to share a room where this is not too restrictive.

Some funds are available to support early career researchers and we encourage them to apply. Please indicate in the registration form, if you are interested.
