​General information

This conference is part of the

Follow Up of the Research Programme IRTATCA

From June 11th to 15th, 2019  

In 2015 a research semester on interaction between algebraic topology, commutative algebra, and representation theory was held in Barcelona, hosted by the CRM. The programme facilitated broader, and deeper, interaction between researchers from these different fields. Three years later we thought it meaningful to reconvene and asses the changes these fields have witnessed.

The speakers that have accepted to come cover wide range of subjects: representation theory, triangulated categories, k-theory,  algebraic topology, etc. We hope that in the line of the previous programme, this conference will help to bring together researchers of cousin fields and prompt new collaborations or ideas.

The EMS offers some travel grants to young mathematicians from less-favoured regions within the geographical area of EMS membership for presenting results at conferences or attending courses, or for research stays in foreign countries, normally up to a maximum of 900 euros in each case or 500 euros for trips within Europe.
Eligible researchers should use this online form​ in order to apply for travel grants.
EWM awards a few grants each year for female mathematicians that are EWM members and are at an early stage of their career or work in a developing country, who need funding (travel and/or accommodation, up to 400 EUR) for participating and giving a talk at a significant conference in their field.
Elegible researchers should follow the procedure described here in order to apply for these grants.
