Conference fees and accomodation: There is no conference fee for invited speakers. For other participants, the conference fee is 150 USD which covers visa support, participation in all conference sessions, printed conference materials, coffee breaks, airport pick up. However, when we finalize our budget, we strongly hope to be able to waive the fee to all invited participants and also to have a limited number of fee waivers for Russian and CIS residents.


The conference is held in honor of the 80th birthday of Anatoly Vershik and focuses on the areas of mathematics where he has made important contributions, including representation theory, dynamical systems, ergodic theory, asymptotic combinatorics, operator algebras, and measure theory.Invited speakers: Alexei Borodin (MIT)
