Lie Theory: frontiers, algorithms, and applications

Jointly organised by Monash University and the University of Trento, this workshop brings together leading experts and early career researchers in (computational) Lie theory, to discuss recent advances in the field and to foster new collaborations. The workshop will focus on theoretical and computational aspects, as well as applications in broad areas such as quantum information theory and theoretical physics.

Spaces are limited, so participation is by invitation only. Please get in touch with the organisers if you wish yo attend (LieTheoryPrato2023(at)


The conference will run January 10-13, 2023.
Arrival date is January 9, 2023; departure January 13/14, 2023.
