Categorification in representation theory
06 Feb 2023 - 17 Feb 2023 • Sydney, Australia
The University of Sydney
This conference focuses on categorification and its applications in representation theory. Categorification is something of an art, where one mathematical object is replaced with another richer, and often categorical, one that often reveals deeper structual properties. Important examples of categorification in representation theory include the geometric categorifications of Ginzburg, Lusztig and Nakajima, which realize quantum groups and their representations in a geometric framework, and Khovanov's categorification of the Jones polynomial, and Elias and Williamson's proof of the Kazhdan-Lusztig positivity conjectures and Soergel's conjectures.

This conference brings some of the top experts in this field to discuss recent advances. The conference consists of:

A workshop, February 6-10, with three lecture series on different aspects of categorification

The main conference, February 13-17.

Categorification, representation theory, categorical algebra, knot homologies, categorified quantum groups, Soergel bimodules
