DESCRIPTION:Satellite event of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics\n
\n\n\nCombinatorics around the q-Onsager algebra \n\nImportant announcemen
t\n\nDue to the current pandemic\, we are postponing the q-Onsager Algeb
ra Conference until the week of 28 June to 3 July 2021.\n\nWe were deepl
y saddened to hear about the passing of Vaughan Jones\, who was scheduled
to speak at our conference. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to his fa
mily\, friends and colleagues. (link)\n\n \n\nAt the conference we will
be celebrating the 65th birthday of Paul Terwilliger. As such\, the gener
al theme of this conference will be the mathematical topics that Paul has
worked on over the years (which all have relationships to the q-Onsager al
gebra). These topics include the following:\n\n• Topics in algebraic gra
ph theory\, such as distance-regular graphs\, association schemes\, the su
bconstituent algebra\, and the Q-polynomial property\;\n\n• Topics in li
near algebra\, such as Leonard pairs\, tridiagonal pairs\, billiard arrays
\, lowering-raising triples\, and a linear algebraic approach to the ortho
gonal polynomials of the Askey scheme\;\n\n• Topics in Lie theory\, such
as the tetrahedron algebra and the Onsager algebra\;\n\n• Topics in alg
ebras and their representations\, such as the equitable presentation of Uq
(sl2)\, the q-tetrahedron algebra\, the q-Onsager algebra in mathematical
physics\, and the universal Askey-Wilson algebra.\n\nThe deadline for sub
mitting abstracts for contributed talks has passed. However\, further su
bmissions may still be considered if space is available. If interested\,
please email the conference organizers.\n\nDate:\n\n28 June – 3 July 20
