The Nikolaus conference is an annual meeting at Lehrstuhl D für Mathematik (RWTH Aachen). The focus is on group and representation theory with an emphasis on computational aspects (but not only). Particularly welcome are young researchers who have recently finished a thesis in this area. This is an opportunity to meet some established people in this area.
The talks will be scheduled from
Friday, December 7, 2018, about 2pm to
Saturday, December 8, 2018, about 6pm.
All talks will be at most 20 minutes long.
We will have long coffee breaks and "evening sessions" which can be used for further discussions.
After the talks on Saturday we will have the traditional Research Cambridge Style session in a nearby restaurant and pub. For this reason many participants will stay until Sunday morning.
The talks and coffee breaks will be in Pontdriesch 14/16. A lecture hall is in the ground floor, and Lehrstuhl D is in the first floor (German counting).
In December there is a very popular Christmas market in Aachen with plenty of non-local visitors. So, do not wait too long before booking accomodation.
(We had rooms in the RWTH Guesthouse, but unfortunately they are all booked by now.)
With this form you can register for the Nikolaus conference 2018.
So far, the following people intend to come:
Please, register if you want to join this list.
All talks were in Pontdriesch 14/16 in Hörsaal SeMath (008). Meeting point and coffee breaks were at Lehrstuhl D, first floor (German counting) in the same building.
