## IGA/AMSI Workshop |

Professor Jonathan Rosenberg obtained his Ph.D. from University of California (Berkeley) in 1976 under the supervision of Professor Marc A. Rieffel. He subsequently spent some time at University of Pennsylvania at the rank of an Assistant Professor between 1977-81. He joined University of Maryland in 1981 where he currently holds the Ruth M. Davis Professorship. He has won several honours and awards in his career and he is widely regarded as a world leading researcher and a first-rate expositor on topics related to operator algebras, geometry, topology and T-duality in string theory. He is renowned for his work on the Gromov-Lawson-Rosenberg conjecture. He was the CBMS principal speaker at TCU, Fortworth, Texas, entitled Topology, C*- algebras, and String Duality, June 2-6, 2008, where he gave a series of 10 highly successful lectures, which have been written up into a book published by the AMS. He was also one the three principal speakers at the prestigious Oberwolfach Seminar on Topological K- theory for Noncommutative Algebras and Applications, May 2005, which eventually became an authoritative book on the subject. He is a managing editor of the Journal of K-theory since 2007 and is on the editorial boards of several other prestigious international journals.

This event is co-sponsored by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI). AMSI allocates a travel allowance to each of its member universities (for a list of members, click here). Students or Early Career Researchers from AMSI member universities without access to a suitable research grant or other source of funding may apply to their Head of Mathematical Sciences for subsidy of travel and accommodation out of the departmental travel allowance. No other funding is available.

Participants, other than the invited speakers, are asked to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements. For a list of budget hotels in Adelaide, please click here.

The University of Adelaide provides wireless access for visitors whose home institutions have eduroam. For more information on how to set up eduroam, please click here.
