K-theory, Hecke Algebras and Representation Theory marking Roger Plymen's 75th birthday July 3-6, Sheffield Organized by Bram Mesland, Nigel Higson, Haluk Sengun, Hang Wang This is a conference that will focus on new and developing links between operator K-theory and representation theory. More specifically, the meeting will consider the following themes: -
recent advances in operator K-theory and representation theory for affine Hecke algebras, with applications to the ABPS conjecture for p-adic groups, the Baum-Connes conjecture and the local Langlands correspondence, -
new constructions linking KK-theory, the Hecke algebras associated to arithmetic groups and automorphic forms, -
new approaches to tempered representation theory for real groups via operator algebras and noncommutative geometry, -
progress on the 'Mackey bijection' between the irreducible representations of real groups and the irreducible representations of associated Cartan motion groups.
