Summer School in Geometric Representation Theory and Extended Affine Lie Algebras
The summer school will consist of three mini-courses per week for two weeks. These courses will serve as an introduction to geometric representation theory, quantum groups and combinatorial representation theory (i.e. the theory of crystal bases), the structure theory of extended affine Lie algebras and the representation theory of affine and toroidal Lie algebras. They will be aimed at the graduate student / postdoctoral fellow level. Following the summer school there will be a one week conference featuring speakers presenting recent developments in areas related to the material of the summer school.
