The year 2021 will mark the 40th anniversary of the discovery and development of Cyclic Cohomology Theory by Alain Connes. Its further flourishing fostered by many mathematicians including Dan Quillen, Jean Louis Loday, Boris Tsygan, Boris Feigin, Joachim Cuntz, Ib Madsen, Max Karoubi, and many others has brought a remarkable development of the subject in many distinct directions, in particular in global analysis, representation theory and index theory, algebraic K-theory and cyclotomic trace maps, arithmetic geometry and mathematical physics. The goal of this meeting will be to bring top experts from around the world to lecture on the state of the art in the field, to look towards the future and discuss the most pressing current open problems in the field.
Registration is free. To register please visit the Fields Institute Conference Page

An online summer school on K-Theory and Representation Theory, organized by N. Higson, R. Plymen and H. Sengun and sponsored by the London Mathematical Society and the Isaac Newton Institute, will take place 19-23 July 2021.
There will be four lecture series:
– Basic representation theory of p-adic Lie groups, by Anne-Marie Aubert
– Basic representation theory of real Lie groups, by Peter Hochs
– Basics of group C*-algebras and K-theory, by Bram Mesland
– Dirac operators and representation theory, by Hang Wang
The lectures will be aimed towards graduate students, but all are welcome to attend. Registration and further information are at https://sites.google.com/view/bath-21-dirac-induction/home

My book SHELL BEACH - the search for the final theory is now out. In the book, which is written for a general audience, I discuss topics such as noncommutative geometry, loop quantum gravity and the question of a final theory - mixed with a dose of whitewater kayaking and massive (intellectual) waterfalls
Best wishes, Jesper Grimstrup
