goal of this workshop will be to discuss some of the new ideas
emerging from the study of semigroup representations. The term
representation theory has taken on a rather narrow meaning in
recent years suggesting mainly group representations
and their connections with particle physics. Important though
these are, semigroups also have representations which
are both interesting in themselves and for their applications.
Two classes of representations form the core of this workshop:
those emerging from
linear representations and their generalizations, and those involving inverse semigroups and
their interactions with C*-algebras.

Participation ICMS has excellent
facilities such as a fully equipped lecture theatre, a pc area
and wi-fi access as well as first-rate staff who have long
experience of organizing maths conferences (and dealing with
mathematicians). However, it is not a large venue and places
will be limited. ICMS will deal with registration via the
support I only have
enough funds to support the speakers.
talks There were three impromptu contributed
talks on Friday afternoon by Janin, Anh and Lawson.
