ARTA Postponed: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference has been postponed. The tentative new date for the conference is June 14-18, 2021, one year from the original date. All invitations to the conference remain in effect, and we will be happy to refresh the inviations upon request.

The eighth edition of the conference "Advances in Representation Theory of Algebras" (ARTA) will be held at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada from June 14 to June 18, 2021. The conference will feature talks on recent developments in the following topics:

  • Structure of finite dimensional algebras
  • Structure of module categories
  • Auslander--Reiten components
  • Homological methods in representation theory
  • Homological conjectures
  • Algebras of finite global dimension
  • Self-injective algebras
  • Tame algebras
  • Combinatorial aspects of representation theory
  • Geometry of algebras and modules
  • Homological invariants of algebras and modules
  • Triangulated categories and tilting theory
  • Relations of the above topics with Lie theory, Singularity theory, Cohen--Macaulay modules, quantum groups and other algebraic structures.
