International Conference on
Representations of Algebras
and Related Topics (ICRA X)
July 15 - August 10, 2002

Registration will be at
The Fields Institute, 222 College Street, 2nd Floor

All talks will be held at the Koffler Institute for Pharmacy Mgmt Bldg (KP)
569 Spadina Avenue, north-east side of Spadina Crescent

The rapid development of the theory of representations of finite dimensional associative algebras and related topics during the past three decades shows no sign of abating and the dispersion of research centres all over the world requires regular meetings in this field.

The purpose of these meetings is not only to exchange the latest result in a rapidly developing area, but from the outset it has been a major focus to bring together leading and well established experts with young researchers who are just starting out and profit greatly from the possibilities of exchange and contact provided and from workshops where recent advances are presented in detailed exposition.

At the last International Conference on Representations of Algebras (ICRA IX) in Beijing, the Scientific Advisory Committee agreed to hold the next Conference (ICRA X) at the Fields Institute in Toronto. The local Organizing Committee consists of:

S. Berman (U. of Saskatchewan )
Y. Billig (Carleton U.)
R.-O. Buchweitz (U. of Toronto)
V. Dlab (Carleton U.)
S. Liu (U. of Sherbrooke)
E. Neher (U. of Ottawa)


July 15 - July 20, 2002

Call for abstracts: (ABSTRACTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER JUNE 15, 2002)
The program of ICRA X will consist of two types of lectures: 50-60 minute invited addresses and 25-30 minute contributed talks (which may be scheduled in parallel sessions). Although some of the invited speakers may have been contacted already ahead of the meeting, the final schedule of the Conference will be decided during the Instructional Workshop on basis of the submitted abstracts. One-page abstracts, related to the topics of the Conference, are to be submitted by June 15, 2002. They should include: names(s) and affiliation(s) of author(s), as well as the address, e-mail address, phone and fax numbers of the contact person. In addition, each abstract should indicate a preferred length of time for presentation. Authors are kindly requested to submit their abstracts via the registration page in plain LaTeX (or plain AMS Tex). Shortly after submission, every abstract will be made available at the web site. A printed version of the abstracts will be included in a booklet as part of the materials for the registered participants. All participants are encouraged to send their comments on the abstracts, and in particular to indicate those that, in their opinion, would merit a 50-60 minute presentation.
