This is the homepage of the conference “Young Researchers in Lie Theory” which will be held at the University of Kent.

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference has been postponed to a later date to be confirmed.

In this conference we aim to bring together postgraduate researchers working on various areas of Lie theory, such as classical representation theory, diagrammatic and 2-categorical Lie theory and algebraic geometry (such as homogenous spaces). Our goal is to create a friendly and supportive environment for postgraduate students to present their work, see other people’s work and discuss ideas that could be useful in their research. Moreover postgraduate students will have the opportunity to attend talks from experienced researchers in the area.

Invited speakers:

  • Dr M. Chlouveraki
  • Dr A. Cox
  • Prof P. Martin*
  • Dr V. Miemietz
  • Dr R. Paget
  • Prof K. Rietsch

* to be confirmed

Organisers: Dimitris Michailidis (, Peter Spacek (
Scientific Committee: Dr C. Bowman, Dr. C.M.A. Pech
