DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Alexey Medvedev\, Tanja Labus (University of Primors
ka)\, Elena Konstantinova\n Satellite event of the 8th European Con
gress of Mathematics\n\n
\n\nG2G2-Summer School is associated with G2G2-Minis
ymposia of 8ECM. It belongs to the G2-series that are about strong and
beautiful mathematics\, especially those involving group actions on combin
atorial objects.\n\nThe main goal of G2G2-Summer School is to bring togeth
er experts and students to exchange ideas and to enrich their mathematical
horizons with focus on computational methods in mathematics and vertex op
erator algebras. We organize two minicourses each of which is presented
in ten lectures including two problem solving sessions\, and eight colloqu
ium talks to let participants see order and simplicity from possibly new p
erspectives and share insights with experts. The two topics are linked tog
ether through Majorana Theory\, which can be viewed as a finite dimensiona
l extraction of vertex operator algebras.\n\nComputer algebra systems are
an invaluable research tool in finite group theory. Their use is becoming
increasingly widespread and it is now virtually compulsory for young mathe
maticians to have some experience with computational methods. GAP is one o
f the pre-eminent computer algebra systems. Theory of vertex operator alge
bras holds a prominent position in recent studies of algebraic combinatori
cs as a rich source of combinatorial structures with actions of finite gro
ups. However\, other connections between vertex operator algebras and fini
te groups have been largely unexplored\, despite a large body of research
that has now developed in the field of vertex operator algebras. It is cru
cial that these two rich areas of mathematics are once again united and th
e G2G2 school offers the perfect opportunity for this. Any young researche
r interested in algebraic combinatorics and finite groups would benefit en
ormously from these two minicourses as well as\, of course\, the opportuni
ty to present their own work and to discuss research with the other attend
ees.\n\nVenue: The Summer School will be held at Hotel Planja\, Rogla. Sit
uated at around 1500m above sea level\, its beautiful natural scenery prov
ides pleasant climate conditions and stimulating working environment. For

\n\nAge: 8 – 16 years\n\n \n\nThe Confucius Classroom Koper at the Univ
ersity of Primorska (KUK UP) offers an immersion course into Chinese langu
age and culture for young participants between 8 and 16 years of age.\n\nY
ou will be offered the chance to immerse into the Chinese culture by learn
ing about the essential principles of the Chinese language and the core va
lues of its culture. All the courses will be taught in a team teaching mod
e\, led jointly by a Slovene sinologist and a Chinese teacher.\n\nThe work
will be tailored so as to cater to the needs of groups of different age a
nd abilities. Students with preliminary knowledge of Chinese language are
also invited and will be placed in an advanced group. \n\nThe Chinese teac
hers will ensure that students gain a most authentic understanding of the
Chinese culture\, leading presentations and workshops on ancient and moder
n Chinese customs\, lifestyles and values. \n\nThe sinologists and staff m
embers of the Confucius classroom in Koper\, University of Primorska\, wil
l ensure that students will be making good progress and feel comfortable.
\n\n \n\nThe fee covers the following services:\n\n- 14 hours of Chinese
language course\, which will include basic or advanced level of spoken and
written Chinese language. \n\n- 8 hours of presentations about Chinese cu
lture with lectures on several topics: the clay soldiers\, the Great Wall
of China\, the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven\, the Gobi Desert a
nd Takla Makan\, Chinese painting and calligraphy\, mythological and real
animals (panda\, dragon\, monkey).\n\n- 8 hours of workshops on Chinese cu
lture (a practical demonstration of traditional arts and crafts: masks\, c
alligraphy\, painting\, noodles\, origami\, and knots).\n\n- In your leisu
re time\, you can also learn about the Chinese culture by watching some Ch
inese cartoons and films.\n\n \n\nDaily time-table:\n\n\n \n \n \n 8

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jasna Prezelj (FAMNIT\, FMF\, IMFM)\nThis internal s
atellite conference is held during the 8th European Congress of Mathematic
s - 8ECM.\n\nThe scope of the conference Optimization in insurance is to
present concrete optimization problems in insurance\, from gathering and
storing data to risk control. The lecturers come mostly from industry and
will present concrete examples they have encountered in their professional
work. The contributions are of particular interest to risk managers a
nd actuaries working in the insurance industry. The lectures are aimed a
t ideas how to make companies more competitive. \n\nParticipants are in

he q-Onsager Algebra Conference until the week of 28 June to 3 July 2021
.\n\n \n\nAt the conference we will be celebrating the 65th birthday of P

wing:\n\n• Topics in algebraic graph theory\, such as distance-regular g
raphs\, association schemes\, the subconstituent algebra\, and the Q-polyn
omial property\;\n\n• Topics in linear algebra\, such as Leonard pairs\,
tridiagonal pairs\, billiard arrays\, lowering-raising triples\, and a li
near algebraic approach to the orthogonal polynomials of the Askey scheme\
;\n\n• Topics in Lie theory\, such as the tetrahedron algebra and the On
sager algebra\;\n\n• Topics in algebras and their representations\, such
as the equitable presentation of Uq(sl2)\, the q-tetrahedron algebra\, th
e q-Onsager algebra in mathematical physics\, and the universal Askey-Wil
son algebra.\n\nThe deadline for submitting abstracts for contributed talk
s has passed. However\, further submissions may still be considered if s
pace is available. If interested\, please email the conference organizer
