-  an Interdisciplinary Symposium  -

November 18-22, 2002,
Fraueninsel, Germany

Tilting modules were born about twenty years ago in the context of finite dimensional algebras. Since then, tilting theory has spread in many different directions, and nowadays it plays an important role in various branches of modern algebra, ranging from Lie theory and algebraic geometry to homotopical algebra. The aim of this meeting is to bring together for the first time experts from different fields where tilting is relevant or even of central importance. There will be several lecture series and survey talks on the use of tilting theory in different contexts, as well as a number of additional talks contributed by the participants.

Here is a tentative list of the invited speakers:

M. van den Bergh (University of Limburg)
S. Brenner (University of Liverpool)
T. Brüstle (University of Bielefeld)
M. Butler (University of Liverpool)
S. Donkin (University of London)

H. Lenzing (University of Paderborn)
O. Mathieu (University of Lyon)
J. Miyachi {Tokyo Gakugei University)
I. Reiten (NTNU Trondheim)
J. Rickard (University of Bristol)
C. M. Ringel (University of Bielefeld)
R. Rouquier (University of Paris VII)
J. Trlifaj (Charles University Prague) 

Organizers: Lidia Angeleri Hügel (Munich), Dieter Happel (Chemnitz), Henning Krause (Bielefeld).

Location: The meeting will take place in the Abtei Frauenwörth, a monastery on the island Fraueninsel on the Bavarian lake Chiemsee. The monastery offers both accomodation (for at most 50 participants) and lecture rooms, while the meals will be taken in the nearby restaurant "Zum Klosterwirt". The Chiemsee is located between Munich and Salzburg and can be easily reached from Munich. There will be a conference bus leaving from Munich on 4:30 p.m. of Sunday, November 17. There is also a good train connection  from Munich to Prien am Chiemsee (also from Munich Airport). From Prien there are boats (see the updated timetable!) to the islands leaving every hour. The boat trip from Prien to the Fraueninsel takes 30 minutes. The Abtei Frauenwörth is situated in front of the pier. 

Financial support: The meeting is supported by the Volkswagen-Stiftung . This means that we can cover the accomodation as well as part of the board expenses of all participants. For the remaining local expenses, we will ask for a registration fee between 50 and 70 EUR to be paid at the arrival. We regret that we cannot offer any financial support for travel expenses.  

The departure is scheduled for Friday, November 22. The meeting will end at about 5 p.m. 

Hotels in Munich: We have made special agreements with some hotels in Munich for the week-ends immediately before and after the meeting. Prices and addresses of the hotels can be found here.
