     The    REGISTRATION   is closed.




We have pre-booked limited amount of en-suite rooms from 26 August to 30 August 2012 (4 nights) at Queen's Elms Village 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.


The deadline is extended till   2 July 2012.

 It is still possible to register after the deadline, but the accommodation option is no longer available.
There are number of BBs available for booking (with free cancellation) near the University via the,
another option is the IBIS hotel near Queen's, bookings there can be made via the website:



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 also more general structures appeared in various applications, in
particular in physics, analysis, geometry, topology, homotopy theory, and coding theory.

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

* Algebras given by relations (including quadratic algebras)

      * 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;

      * Homological properties, properties of the Koszul complex;

* Structures originated in  physics, geometry, topology, homotopy theory

      * operads, props;

      * Novikov structures and pre-Lie algebras, Leibnitz algebras, ternary algebras, etc.;

      * Poisson structures;

      * cluster algebras;

 * 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, in particular, related to the Groebner bases theory

 The program of the workshop  will include  an introductory lectures on Quantum Error Correcting Codes
due to Professor Tony Dorlas (Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies).
