25-29 August 2014
School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Glasgow

The research school will be held in the School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Glasgow. The school is aimed at PhD students and early postdocs wanting to learn about topics in algebraic Lie theory and representation theory that are currently of great interest. It will be held the week before a conference at the ICMS in Edinburgh on Algebraic Lie theory.
