This is one of a series of NSF-funded workshops which meet at various western United States campuses for one weekend every few months during the academic year, organized by Geoff Mason, Susan Montgomery and Joe Wolf. The purpose of the program is to communicate results and ideas rather than to deliver polished presentations. The program also serves to acquaint graduate students in this area with a range of researchers in Lie theory and representation theory. The local organizer for the Eugene meeting is Jon Brundan and the special theme for this weekend is "Tensor categories and categorification."
Saturday April 27 and Sunday April 28, 2013.
Department of Mathematics, University of Oregon, Eugene. The lectures will be held in Fenton Hall, room 110. Coffee breaks will take place in Fenton Hall, room 219. Fenton Hall is on the north side of E 13th Avenue, see the campus map for directions.

There is no registration process or fee--just show up! Graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend. There is some support available for non-local graduate students, please contact Jon Brundan with your name and the name of your PhD advisor to request this. Here is some more information about how to get here and about nearby hotels. We anticipate most people will plan to arrive in Eugene on Friday night. If you are coming by car you may use any university parking lot on the weekend. The lot closest to the talks is at the northeast corner of 11th Avenue and Kincaid.
