The Algebra Day at the University of Ottawa (September 19-21) is in honor of the retirement of Michel Racine and is devoted to nonassociative algebras. The speakers are:

Bruce Allison (University of Alberta/University of Victoria),
Jose Anquela (Universidad de Oviedo)
Vesselin Drensky

Kevin McCrimmon (University of Virginia),
Holger Petersson (Fernuniversität Hagen),
Ivan Shestakov (Sao Paulo)
Efim Zelmanov (University of California, San Diego)

Mini-course - Introduction to the Auslander-Reiten theory

Osamu Iyama (Nagoya University)


Mini-course - An introduction to PI-algebras

In the week between the two Algebra Days (Sept. 15-18) there will be a graduate level mini-course by Vesselin Drensky (Bulgarian Academy of Science, Sofia),

Colloquia

The two Algebras Days will be followed respectively preceded by two colloquia for general mathematical audience, one at Carleton University (September 15) given by Claus Ringel (Universität Bielefeld) and one at the Ottawa of Ottawa (September 19) given by Efim Zelmanov (University of California, San Diego).

Registration

There are no registration fees. But the organizers would very much appreciate registration by prospective participants of any one of the events listed above. This will allow us to prepare the appropriate number of coffee and tea cups.
Indicate when registering if you will be attending:
1) Participation in the Algebra Day at Carleton University (September 13)
2) Participation in the Algebra Day at the University of Ottawa (September 19-21)
3) Participation in the mini-course An introduction to PI-algebras (September 15-18)

Financial support

Financial support for participating graduate students and postdoctoral fellows is available. Please contact one of the organizers as soon as possible. Erhard Neher (University of Ottawa) and Benjamin Steinberg (Carleton University), indicate the amount requested and ask your supervisor to send a supporting letter to one of the organizers. Deadline for application was August 31.
