FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT October 25, 2009 A conference "Representation Theory of Algebraic Groups and Quantum Groups '10" August 2 -- 6, 2010, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan, will be held, as the 10th International Conference by Graduate School of Mathematics, Nagoya University. This conference is a continuation of the conference of the same title held at Sophia University, Tokyo, in the summer of 2001, and at Nagoya University in June, 2006. The main theme of the conference is, as in the title, the representation theory of algebraic groups and quantum groups. Especially the special emphasis will be put on - Modular representations of algebraic groups, - Representations of quantum groups and crystal bases, - Representations of affine Lie algebras, - Representations of Lie algerbas in positive characteristic, - Representations of affine Hecke algebras, - Modular or ordinary representations of finite reductive groups, - Representations of complex reflection groups and associated Hecke algebras. The (tentatively) confirmed speakers, as of October 2010, are T. Arakawa (Nara Women's University) S. Ariki (RIMS) R. Bezrukavnikov (MIT) J. Brundan (University of Oregon) P. Fiebig (Freiburg Univesity) M. Geck (Aberdeen University) V. Ginzburg (University of Chicago) J. Kamnitzer(Univesity of Toronto) S. Kato (RIMS) G.I. Lehrer (University of Sydney) H. Nakajima (RIMS) A. Premet (University of Manchester) R. Rouquier (University of Oxford) N. Xi (Chinese Academy of Sciences) The organizing committee is : T. Shoji (chair), S. Ariki, H. Nakajima, Y. Saito, K. Shinoda, T. Tanisaki The registration in advance is not necessary in this conference. Participants are requested to register at the registration desk in the conference hall. Some funds will be available for travel and lodging support. Please contact us by e-mail. Especially young mathematicians are welcome to the conference.
