Entrance hall of the ICMS Workshop

This workshop will highlight some of the areas of operator theory where rapid developments have taken place in the last decade, and bring together mathematicians engaged in these different yet connected areas. Rather than concentrating on one narrow area, the workshop will explore three main strands:

  • Applied Operator Theory
  • Operator Theory and Complex Analysis
  • Operator Theory and Harmonic Analysis


We will consider both the role of applications as a source of deep operator-theoretic questions and the role of Harmonic Analysis techniques in the theory of operators of function spaces, which is in turn relevant in applications. The aim of the workshop is to strengthen the interaction between researchers using operator theory, especially operators on analytic function spaces, for applications, and researchers working on harmonic analysis and operator theory on analytic function spaces from a more theoretical point of view.

Arrangements

A map showing the places mentioned below and in the programme is available here.

Venue
The workshop will take place at the head-quarters of ICMS, 14 India Street, Edinburgh. This house is the birthplace of James Clerk Maxwell and is situated in the historic New Town of Edinburgh, near the city centre.

The ICMS travel pages contain advice on how to travel to Edinburgh. For local information the finding ICMS page shows the location of ICMS and contains useful maps of the city centre.

The seminar room at ICMS has 4 whiteboards, 2 overhead projectors, a data projector and laptop. If you are giving a talk we ask that you use our ICMS laptop and bring your talk on a memory stick or CD. If you wish your talk to be pre-loaded onto our laptop, you may email it in advance to Helene Frössling .

Wireless access is available throughout the ICMS building. There are also 4 public PCs which may be used at any time for internet access and to check email.

Accommodation
ICMS has booked accommodation for delegates in two locations: The Albany on Albany Street, and The Ballantrae Hotel on York Place. Delegates who asked to have accommodation reserved for them will be allocated a room in one of the two hotels. Participants are also free to make their own arrangements. A list of Edinburgh accommodation of various sorts and prices is available here . Sections 1-3 are particularly relevant.

Meals and Refreshments
There will be an informal wine reception after the close of lectures on Monday 7 September.

Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided on each day of the workshop.

Buffet lunches will be provided on Monday 7 and Friday 11 September at no cost to participants. For the remainder of the days, participants are free to go out for lunch and explore the many cafés, sandwich shops, restaurants and bars nearby. On arrival we will provide you with a ‘welcome’ pack which will contain information about eating places nearby.

The workshop dinner will take place on the evening of Thursday 10 September. The workshop grant will cover the cost of these meals.

Registration
Registration will take place on the morning of Monday 7 September.


Arrival
The main trainstation in Edinburgh is Waverley Station. From Waverley it is around 20-30 minutes walking distance to ICMS offices at India Street. There are currently major road works restricting where Princes Street can be crossed. Waverley Station is around 10 minutes away from the workshop hotels by foot. There is a taxi rank by track 11. Please note that many taxis only accept cash payment.

Edinburgh Airport is small and easy to find your way around. Airlink buses connect the airport to the city. Departures from outside the Domestic Arrivals lounge are frequent. Airlink buses terminate at Waverley Station on Waverley Bridge.

Coaches terminate at St Andrew's Bus Station. From here, you can easily reach York Place (which is the next street to the north of the bus station) and Albany Street.

On Sunday 6 September a major event is taking place in central Edinburgh in the evening. The Edinburgh International Festival Firework Concert is an annual event tempting thousands of people out from 7 pm and onwards. Please note that this is likely to affect travel times. The Airlink service will terminate in another location than Waverley Bridge. At the moment, it is unclear where, possibly St Andrew's Square which is five minutes from the hotels.

 

Financial Arrangements
Unless otherwise specified in your invitation letter, the workshop grant will cover the cost of your bed and breakfast accommodation, tea/coffee throughout the workshop, lunch on Monday and Friday only, the wine reception, the informal supper on Tuesday, the buffet on Wednesday and the Workshop Dinner on Thursday evening.

If we have agreed to pay some of your travel costs, you will be informed by email. Reimbursement will take place after the workshop. At Registration you will be given an expenses claim form and this should be submitted to ICMS, with receipts and bank details. Please note that we cannot reimburse any item without a receipt.

Participation
Participation is by invitation only. The workshop will begin on Monday 7 September and finish on Friday 11 September 2009.

UK Visas
If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one. If you do require a visa, ICMS can provide a signed invitation letter.
