August 10-13, 2018 - São Paulo, Brazil - IFT-UNESP
The Workshop will focus on different aspects and applications of vertex algebras and infinite dimensional Lie algebras to representation theory and conformal field theory. The International Congress of Mathematicians, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro from August 1-9, 2018, will preceed this event. There is no registration fee.
After so many months of work and expectation, the year of the Congress has finally arrived! Preparations are well under way: the bulk of the scientific program has been defined, the proceedings are being finalized (the papers by plenary and invited speakers will be distributed to all the participants at the Congress), travel grants have been awarded to participants from the developing world, communications and posters are being selected as I write, and registration of participants is also taking place right now.
