McKay correspondence and representation theory

Mon 10th—Sat 15th Feb 2014

Organisers: Miles Reid, ITO Yukari

Funded in part by EPSRC

There is a REGISTRATION PAGE, and it makes our planning and administration much easier if EVERYONE registers as soon as possible.

Tim Logvinenko (Cardiff), Diane Maclagan (Warwick), Miles Reid
(Warwick), Dmitry Rumynin (Warwick), Michael Wemyss (Edinburgh),
several herds of postdocs and graduate students.

First talk: Mon 10th Feb at 2:00.
Last talk: Sat 15th Feb at 12:00, followed by a pub lunch.
