Conference on Operator Algebras and Related Topics

In memory of Vaughan Jones

June 8-10, 2021

Istanbul Center for Mathematical Sciences and Bogazici University

Operator Algebras in Istanbul, June 2021

In July 1991, Bogazici University hosted a conference on Operator algebras, Mathematical Physics and Low Dimensional Topology. The conference featured leading experts as well as young researchers who would go on to become established. Vaughan Jones was one of the main speakers. Thirty years later, we wish to dedicate this conference to his memory. Details of the 1991 conference including the book of proceedings and photos of participants may be found here: Operator algebras, mathematical physics and low dimensional topology in Istanbul, 1991. Thirty years on, we seek to bring together a similar team of experts in various areas of operator algebras and their connections to other disciplines.
