REGISTERATION is now closed.  


We have pre-booked limited ammount of en-suite rooms from 29 August to 2 September 2010 (5 nights) at Queen's Elms Village (http://www.stayatqueens.com/where-to-stay/non-student/conferences/). This is a student accommodation, normally used for conferences, close to the Mathematical department, where the conference will take place. Should you wish to use this option, you can pay for it when register.


There is a possibility to support attendance for  several UK based research students,

please write to n.iyudu@qub.ac.uk for details.




The workshop will focus on recent developments and classical ideas in the interplay between structural properties of algebras,
properties of their representations and   combinatorics and dynamics. We are particularly interested to discuss problems where combinatorial methods appear as a main ingredient in the solution of an algebraic problem or where arguments of dynamical nature help to understand better some algebraic phenomenon. We will consider structures appeared in various applications, in particular in physics, in analysis and in coding theory. 

Topics of our attention include, but are not limited to the following:

    * Combinatorics of defining relations, particularly combinatorics and dynamics of words; semigroups and semigroup algebras;

    * Properties of various generating series associated to rings, Hilbert series, growth, combinatorics of primes;

    * Representation spaces, dynamics of Gl_n action; Deformation theory;
    *  Novikov structures, pre-Lie algebras, operads, connections with Feynman Graphs, Leibnitz algebras and generalizations, Poisson structures;
        other  structures with origins in physics;

    * Combinatorics in Lie theory;  

    * Actions of groups over rings, lower K-groups over noncommutative rings;

    * Operator algebras and semigroup actions on Banach spaces, their (infinite-dimensional) dynamics.
    * Computational aspects of the above and some other problems (like constructive version of the Quillen-Suslin theorem), in particular, related to
     the Groebner bases theory
