DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Štefko Miklavič (University of Primorska)\, Mark M
acLean (Seattle University)\nSatellite event of the 8th European Congress
of Mathematics\n\n\n\nCombinatorics around the q-Onsager algebra \n\nImpo
rtant announcement\n\nWe regret to announce that after much reflection\, w
e have decided to cancel the q-Onsager algebra Conference (in celebration
of Paul Terwilliger’s 65th birthday)\, which had been scheduled for Slov
enia in June 2022. We believe there is still too much uncertainty around t
he pandemic and international travel restrictions for us to proceed with p
lanning this event next summer.\n\nWe hope that eventually conditions will
be better and more predictable and that perhaps we can hold a similar con
ference in the future. We have discussed the possibility of a 70th birthda
y conference for Paul in a few years.\n\nWe apologize for any inconvenienc
e this cancellation may cause. Thank you most sincerely for your interest.
\n\nWe were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Vaughan Jones\, w
ho was scheduled to speak at our conference. We extend our heartfelt sym
pathies to his family\, friends and colleagues. (link)\n\n \n\nAt the c
onference we will be celebrating the 65th birthday of Paul Terwilliger. As
such\, the general theme of this conference will be the mathematical topi
cs that Paul has worked on over the years (which all have relationships to
the q-Onsager algebra). These topics include the following:\n\n• Topics
in algebraic graph theory\, such as distance-regular graphs\, association
schemes\, the subconstituent algebra\, and the Q-polynomial property\;\n\
n• Topics in linear algebra\, such as Leonard pairs\, tridiagonal pairs\
, billiard arrays\, lowering-raising triples\, and a linear algebraic appr
oach to the orthogonal polynomials of the Askey scheme\;\n\n• Topics in
Lie theory\, such as the tetrahedron algebra and the Onsager algebra\;\n\n
• Topics in algebras and their representations\, such as the equitable p
resentation of Uq(sl2)\, the q-tetrahedron algebra\, the q-Onsager algebra
in mathematical physics\, and the universal Askey-Wilson algebra.\n\nThe
deadline for submitting abstracts for contributed talks has passed. How
ever\, further submissions may still be considered if space is available.
If interested\, please email the conference organizers.\n\nDate:\n\n20-
24 June\, 2022\n\nLocation:\n\nRamada Resort\, Kranjska gora\, Slovenia\n\
