DESCRIPTION:Satellite event of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics\n
\n\n\nCombinatorics around the q-Onsager algebra \n\nImportant announcemen
t\n\nWe regret to announce that after much reflection\, we have decided to
cancel the q-Onsager algebra Conference (in celebration of Paul Terwillig
er’s 65th birthday)\, which had been scheduled for Slovenia in June 2022
. We believe there is still too much uncertainty around the pandemic and i
nternational travel restrictions for us to proceed with planning this even
t next summer.\n\nWe hope that eventually conditions will be better and mo
re predictable and that perhaps we can hold a similar conference in the fu
ture. We have discussed the possibility of a 70th birthday conference for
Paul in a few years.\n\nWe apologize for any inconvenience this cancellati
on may cause. Thank you most sincerely for your interest.\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\n20-24 June\, 2022\n\n
