Overview
The aim of this workshop is to discuss the current state of research in the area of Enveloping Algebras and their applications, primarily in Representation Theory. We have invited several prominent mathematicians to give lectures illuminating the main achievements in these areas and outline the prospects of further research. There will be a number of longer research talks as well as some shorter research communications, in particular by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

The list of confirmed invited speakers includes

1. Alberto Elduque (Univeristy of Zaragoza, Spain)
2. Vyacheslav Futorny (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil)
3. Victor Kac (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA)
4. Antony Joseph (Weizmann Institute, Israel)
5. Vladimir Mazorchuk (University of Uppsala, Sweden)
6. Erhard Neher (University of Ottawa)
7. José María Pérez Izquierdo (University of La Rioja, Spain)
8. Alexander Premet (University of Manchester, UK)
9. Ivan Shestakov (Unversity of Sao Paulo, Brazil)
